In this research study, the performance in battery running and charging of an original circuit design is compared with the performance between the developed DC–DC boost converter running and charging replication circuit design. Bedini generators are a kind of magnetic generator designed by John Bedini on the basis of zero point technology. The generator serves as a self-battery charger. In this study, the two types of circuit design, namely, the original and the replication, are examined in terms of performance in battery running and charging. The DC–DC boost converter offers greater voltage boost capabilities and hence has the potential to enhance step-up power conversions. The novel design was a prototype of the six-pole eight-neodymium magnet generator, which potentially offers free energy and could therefore serve as an alternative means of addressing energy needs when the current nonrenewable fuel sources have been wholly depleted in the future. The coefficient of performance (COP) for the battery performance of both designs is calculated in this study in order to allow comparisons to be drawn. Upon analysis, it is discovered that the DC–DC boost converter circuit is both practical and efficient, offering a high level of step-up power conversion capacity for battery running and charging. The COP of the new system provides a significant increase in COP when compared to the original design.
