Lattice White Paper: LENRs Enable Green Radiation-Free Nuclear Power and Propulsion (Lewis Larson)

Thanks to Greg Goble for the following comment and reference.

Studying this and learning… interesting history… excellent presentation. Worthy of its own thread and discussion. The race to LENR energy commercialization is gaining full stride… Quote L.L.”No a priori technical reason why LENRs could not scale-up as fast as fission did”. I’m fairly certain the oil and gas industry has advanced labs working on LENR energy systems. I expect we will see these corporate LENR players works’ soon. In the future we will likely be saying how stupid and ignorant we were to burn these valuable aromatic molecules. Once again, Lewis Larson (pg 23) invites the oil/coal industry to create LENR feedstock. “LENR technology provides a compelling strategic opportunity for fossil fuel companies because it could enable future processing and conversion of aromatic molecules found in oil and coal into green CO2-free nanoparticulate LENR fuels that have >5,000x the energy density of gasoline.”

Lewis Larson – May 16, 2019 “Lattice White Paper: LENRs enable green radiation-free nuclear power and propulsion” https://www.academia.edu/39165768/LENRs_enable_green_radiation-free_nuclear_power_and_propulsion?email_work_card=view-paper

Introduction
If commercialized, LENRs could become one of the world’s preeminent energy technologies. At system electrical power outputs of just 5 – 10 kwh, modular LENR-based distributed power generation systems providing combined heat and electricity (CHP) could satisfy energy requirements of a majority of urban and rural households as well as smaller businesses worldwide. Much lower-output, revolutionary portable LENR power sources could displace chemical batteries in applications where ultrahigh performance and longevity are needed. At electrical outputs of 60 – 200 kwh, LENR-based integrated power generation systems would be able to power vehicles, drones, as well as smaller aircraft and watercraft. This would break oil-based fuels’ 150-year stranglehold on internal combustion engines and decisively decarbonize the entire transportation sector. High-performance LENR thermal sources could also provide high-quality heat for many types of industrial processes.

Dennis Danzik on the Earth Engine — Magnetic Propulsion Based on Control of Entropy

Thanks to Woody and others for referencing a post by the Earth Engine inventor Dennis K. Danzik in which responds to comments on the website Revolution Green about the recent developments with the Earth Engine and Inductance Energy Corporation.

Here is part of his comment originally posted here: https://revolution-green.com/earth-engine-claimed-3-years-40-kw-mechanical-energy-production-magnets/

I am just going to respond in whole as to some of the very intelligent comments and questions in regard to Magnetic Propulsion. There are a few facts that you need to know about when and how I will respond, and on what subjects I will comment on.

First, I am not a “believer” in “over unity”, and I have never experienced anything close to perpetual motion. For the most part, I am a classically trained engineer and for the first twenty four years of my practice, I worked on the refining side of oil and gas, mainly in polymers and composite design. I was focused on laboratory work in olefins and polyesters.

My lifelong obsession with magnetics began as a child, and I started working on Magnetic Propulsion in 2009 when some rare earth magnets became low cost enough for me to afford access to those products. I started laboratory work on the Engine and its components in 2010. I started working floor models in mid 2011.

My background is that of a trained industrial engineer, and I did complete grad work in product development at MIT/Sloan in 2009. I am not a physicist, but I can keep pace with most of the post doctoral discussions in regard to magnetics over the last 10 years. The vast majority of my career time has been in a laboratory development environment.

I do like the name “magnetics” as it applies to magnetism as an applied science that studies magnetic fields and magnetic radiation paths in relation to opposing and attracting magnetic fields. In other words, I have little interest at this time in measures and experimenting with magnetic fields working on a conductor.

I will not be responding in any way to my posts. They are for information only and not intended to start a conversation. My posts are not intended to inform you on how Magnetic Propulsion works in detail, or that I need to “prove it” to anyone on these types of message boards. The information is not greatly detailed, as I have little extra time in my life, but I do want to casually inform as many people as possible.

The Earth Engine, which is based on Magnetic Propulsion, functions from the force developed by a paired magnetic field. The magnetic field STARTS and ACCELERATES the flywheel on its own force, once attenuated. Most of our flywheel combinations are greater than 800 kg.

What I have developed, after many years of laboratory work, was based on the Szilard paper of 1929. Leo Szilard, through the work he left behind, has taught me a great deal. Here is a link to the paper that I made my life’s work (outside of my career):

http://www.sns.ias.edu/~tlusty/courses/InfoInBio/Papers/Szilard1929.pdf

My development is the control of entropy in the system. The applied science of Magnetic Propulsion first diminishes the point of entropy and then uses that entropy to ACCELERATE the flywheel in what we call a “slingshot”.

Entropy in my system occurs at only one point in the rotation of the flywheel. This has taken me years to calculate and refine. Let’s say at 350 degrees as an example, entropy is at maximum (force in the opposite direction of the desired direction). So from 0 to 358 the flywheel is being pushed and accelerates continuously. Now, obeying all physical laws, if I did not control entropy, the flywheel would slow and eventually stop. At 359 degrees I have developed a way to attenuate the magnetic field that is already “lopsided” or asymmetrical. The flywheel then makes it past the reversing force and then enters the “slingshot” and then the flywheel, using the opposing force greatly accelerates from 359 to about 15 degrees.

There are only two fields opposing at a time. One from the attenuation section (what we call fuel), and the flywheel magnetic field (what we call receptors). There are no electromagnets, or any device coupling to the flywheel. It is a zero contact device that is also magnetically levitated.
Attenuation of the field is accomplished through the bending of the paired fields. This is a major breakthrough. We keep both the geometry (shape) and geography (where the magnetic fuel is placed)(the pattern).

On the laboratory device “Crystal” you can see the firing of the attenuation device every 360 degrees. It consumes about 20 watts on average per firing.

Crystal has a 100 watt alternator rectified to 24 volts. It is also magnetically driven.
Crystal was built SOLELY to prove the applied science of Magnetic Propulsion. The simple fact that two magnetic fields produce a force, and when harvested, that force can spin a flywheel. That flywheel can then charge a battery or capacitor.

Now, here are some very important facts;
1. Crystal is NOT a dynamic motor. Magnetic Propulsion is not dynamic (instant) in its power delivery. It is inertia. It delivers power (which can then spin a generator) by accelerating a flywheel and storing that energy. You cannot in any way hook a dynamic load to a Magnetic Propulsion Engine. It will just stop, and it will stop quickly.
2. Magnetic Propulsion Engines work by creating inertia in a very specialized flywheel (some 257 parts) that refuse to magnetize in the presence of a large and powerful magnetic field. Once to speed (125 to 350 RPM) you have a great way to harvest kinetic energy by spinning an alternator. The alternator is not allowed to exceed a specific load, based on its affect on inertia. This is also a closely held trade secret. Think of it as a very large electrical “pump”.
3. Magnetic Propulsion requires STORAGE. A battery or capacitor. You can charge 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
4. Magnetic Propulsion requires a BATTERY or CAPACITOR for its parasitic energy to run its attenuation section. But this is only about 20W p/s at 60 RPM. So the battery is very small.
5. Crystal’s flywheel weighs in at 622 LBS where our commercial Engine flywheels are just over 4,000 LBS.
6. Magnetic Propulsion is not “over unity” or perpetual motion. It receives its power from over 5,000 PSI of pressure from an accelerated magnetic field. My developed magnetic fuel has “pull forces” (a common measure used in magnetism) of over 10,000 Pounds. This type of force requires not only great safety procedures but has also led to great breakthroughs in the handling of these very powerful magnets.

This coming week, IEC will be producing a complete explanatory broadcast program called “Introduction to Magnetic Propulsion” which will air on www.earthenginelive.com. It will be broadcast live and then repeated at specific times during the day. Broadcast times will be announced this coming Monday morning on the IEC Website (www.ie.energy) and on www.earthenginelive.com.
The program will take you through the entire Magnetic Propulsion Cycle and introduce our new transparent control panel with consumption and output meters (compliments of AccuEnergy).
I sincerely hope that you will tune in !

Translating Dr. Alexander Parkhomov’s Space. Earth. Human. into English (Bob Greenyer Kickstarter)

Bob Greenyer has launched a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to translate Dr. Alexander Parkhomov’s book “Space. Earth. Human.” into English (it was originally published in Russian)

The Kickstarter page for this project is here:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1138088857/space-earth-human?ref=5ubl8j

From the page:

SPACE. EARTH. HUMAN.
Explores the roots of strange phenomena
Over more than 100 years, starting with Tesla around the time of the discovery of x-rays and the electron, strange unexplained phenomena have been observed by researchers the world over, from enthusiasts to Nobel prize winners.

Dr. Alexander Parkhomov on his discovery
“In 1988, when working with three-dimensional diffraction gratings and detectors, which made it possible to obtain a spatial effect distribution and accumulate information for long periods, I discovered radiation which had a micron-millimeter wavelength and had a very high penetrating power.

It was clear this radiation was not light, radio waves or ultrasound, however, like these radiation types, the wavelength is much longer than the distances between atoms in a substance, i.e. interaction occurs immediately with a huge number of atoms. Substance, for such radiation, is a continuous medium, in which it refracts and from which it surface reflects.

If there are irregularities on the surface smaller than the wavelength, mirror reflection occurs. A concave mirror allows concentration and focussing of the radiation. Even if the reflection coefficient is very small, by using a mirror with a large surface, you can get a large increase in the intensity of the radiation. To understand how this works, consider a plate of clear glass, even though it is transparent, light still reflects from it well.

All this and more is described in detail in parts 2 and 3 of my book.

The first experiments with focusing mirrors were made in 1992.”

Bob has a video on the Kickstarter page which explains the scope of the translation project and gives information about the rewards that are available to people who support this project. He has noted that after only one day, 39% of the funds have been raised.

Wall Street Journal Articles Covers IEC’s Earth Engine and Inventor Dennis Danzik

An article published in the Wall Street Journal examines the story of Inductance Energy Corporation and the role of Dennis Danzik in particular as the inventor of the Earth Engine.

The author, Dan Neil, takes an open-minded approach to the claims of Danzik and IEC, acknowledging that their claims go against the laws of physics as they are currently understood, but also allowing for the fact that it might be possible that a breakthrough might have been made. He writes: “If it works as advertised, it would rank with the harnessing of steam, electricity and the atom.”

As many readers here are aware, IEC claims that it can produce energy through a new type of magnetic interaction which physics says cannot work because of the law of conservation of energy (magnetic attraction and repulsion cancel each other out) The WSJ article explains it like this:

The magnets IEC uses are also highly one-sided, or “anisotropic,” which means their field is stronger on one face than the other—say, 85% North and 15% South.

In the R32, magnets located in three black towers interact with ones placed in the two one-ton, counter-rotating flywheels. As the flywheel rotates, small battery-powered motors move the tower magnets’ orientation at moments of highest drag. This allows the magnets to accelerate as they approach and not slow down as much when they pass.

The net force imparts angular momentum to the flywheels that can then be harvested, mechanically or electrically, IEC claims.

The article is pretty neutral. It acknowledges that there is skepticism amongst some physicists, but also that some visitors to the IEC Scottsdale, Arizona facility leave thinking that they have seen working magnet motors. Dan Neil says it has to be one of two things: an immense scientific/technological breakthrough, or an elaborate magic trick.

A newspaper article in a major newspaper like the WSJ is likely to generate new interest in IEC’s claims, and possibly help them get new customers. The target market seems to be operations where they currently use diesel generators, such as oil fields, where they say they will sell electricity from between 8-45 cents per kw/H (compared to $1 for diesel generated electricity).

Ultimately, in order for people to become convinced this is not a magic trick, it will take happy Earth Engine customers willing to publicly endorse the technology. Only one customer is named in this article: Shooting Range Industries in Las Vegas, Nevada which is owned by an IEC investor named Mike Halverson.

I have tried to get some comment from Shooting Range Industries about how happy they were with the performance of the Earth Engine, but they just referred me back to IEC who have yet to respond to my inquiries.

The WSJ article is available here, however only part of it is available to the general public.

The Hovering Hummingbird Robot

This is somewhat off-topic, but an interesting development in the field of flying machines. A press release and video from Purdue University showsa flying robot that can behave like a hummingbird, both fly like a bird and hover like an insect. They talk about using such devices in search-and-rescue operations, but also in military and surveillance settings, so as usual this could have both constructive and destructive purposes.

From the press release:

Purdue University researchers have engineered flying robots that behave like hummingbirds, trained by machine learning algorithms based on various techniques the bird uses naturally every day.

This means that after learning from a simulation, the robot “knows” how to move around on its own like a hummingbird would, such as discerning when to perform an escape maneuver.

Artificial intelligence, combined with flexible flapping wings, also allows the robot to teach itself new tricks. Even though the robot can’t see yet, for example, it senses by touching surfaces. Each touch alters an electrical current, which the researchers realized they could track.

“The robot can essentially create a map without seeing its surroundings. This could be helpful in a situation when the robot might be searching for victims in a dark place – and it means one less sensor to add when we do give the robot the ability to see,” said Xinyan Deng, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue.

IEC’s ‘Crystal’ Earth Engine to be Shown in 24/7 Livestream Starting This Week

Inductance Energy Corporation is announcing that this week (Tuesday May 15th, if their countdown clock is accurate), they will be showing a livestream of their magnetic motor Earth Engine at this website:

http://earthenginelive.com

Here is what they state on this website:

The World’s First Magnetic Propulsion Engine was developed by Inductance Energy Corporation and will be streaming LIVE 24/7!

“Crystal” is a fully transparent laboratory scale model of the Inductance Energy Earth Engine. Crystal is driven by Magnetic Propulsion, which is the science of moving a mass (such as a flywheel, vehicle, elevator) in a rotator reciprocating, linear, or vertical direction soley by means of controlling permanent, imbalanced magnetic radiation (field). Using the repulsion (opposing force) as a fuel source, the Inductance Energy Earth Engine, driven by magnetic propulsion pushes large, heavy flywheels with zero-contact. Inductance Energy zero-contact drive system allows the Earth Engine to operate variable speed transmissions, drive shafts, reducers, and other devices without the requirement of gears, sprockets, chains, or belts. This provides a near friction-less connection between power source and the final selected device, such as a pump, compressor, or generator.

If IEC’s claims are real, and this is really is a motor driven by magnetic propulsion using repulsion as a fuel source, it would be remarkable achievement, as most physicists claim it is impossible to get work out of such permanent magnetic interactions. So this is going to be an interesting livestream to follow.

“My Opinion on Cold Nuclear Fusion” (Sergey Tsvtkov)

There is an article published last monoth on the Russian news website Regnum written by Sergey Alekseevich Tsvetkov, who is a long-time cold fusion researcher a member of the Coordination Council of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences on the issue of Cold Transmutation.

His article is titled “My opinion on cold nuclear fusion” at the 30-year-old Cold Synthesis Conference: Results and Prospects held on March 23, 2019 in Moscow.

https://regnum.ru/news/2606951.html

The article is in Russian, so all excerpts here are Google-translated.

He provides a comprehensive review of the field of CF/LENR starting from the time of Pons and Fleischmann up to the present day, focusing especially on Russian research. He also reports on his own experiments using a titanium-deuterium system.

Here is an excerpt:

“According to calculations, an excess heat of 360 W per 7 g of titanium was obtained. If you count it on a 100-gram sample, you get an excess heat source of about 7 kW. The energy intensity of such a heat source will be 52.2 W / g of titanium, which is higher than the energy release of the WWR-1000 reactor, for which it is 45.5 W / g of uranium. That is, this is a significant heat release that can be converted and used as heat or as electricity.”

His conclusion:

Prospects for cold fusion

It is impossible to tell in detail about all aspects and directions of development that arise in the process of studying this amazing phenomenon of cold nuclear fusion. You can only identify the main directions, each of which requires a serious and lengthy discussion. At the moment I would highlight the following areas:

1. Getting heat and electricity.

2. Processing of nuclear waste from nuclear power plants and other industries.

3. Synthesis of tritium is much cheaper in cost than currently available in nuclear reactors.

4. Synthesis of precious metals and rare isotopes.

5. Getting oxygen from carbon dioxide.

6. Creating a gamma laser.

7. Space, aviation, auto and railway engines using technology.

Nobody wants to waste time today on understanding the mechanisms of cold nuclear fusion, although logic suggests that there was first a synthesis of the elements, and now we use them using fission reactions or simply burning fossil fuels. Humanity is vital to the transition to nature-like, cyclical technologies that will meet the needs of people without disturbing the natural balance and gyres. The key technology in this transition today is the cold fusion technology of cold transmutation of nuclei. The transition to new nuclear technologies allows solving simultaneously the main energy, resource and environmental global problems.

Cold nuclear fusion is the gift of the Creator. Sin is not to take advantage of them. We must learn to use it.

Brilliant Light Power Report Propriety Magnetohydrodynamic Power Cycle, Claim Power Density Comparabl to High-Speed Diesel Engines

Thanks to Jas for posting about the following:

Brilliant Light Power posted news on their website:

https://brilliantlightpower.com/breakthrough-oxygen-and-silver-nanoparticle-aerosol-magnetohydrodynamic-power-cycle/

“We report a proprietary liquid magnetohydrodynamic cycle, the simplest application of Lorentz’s law to a moving conductor with crossed electrodes and a magnetic field with no moving parts, having a potential of MHD power conversion efficiency that approaches the loading factor W (ratio of the electric field across the load to the open circuit electric field) . . . The channel volume is 20.4 cm3 so the corresponding MHD power density is about 23.1 kW/cm3 (23.1 MW/liter) which compares very favorably with typical power densities in the range of only about 30 kW/liter for state-of-the-art high-speed heavy-duty diesel engines.”

There is also a link to a paper posted:

Rossi Moderately Satisfied with E-Cat SK Performance

Andrea Rossi has commented recently that the early E-Cat SK heating devices have had problems in their operations, but he has not explained in any detail what the problems have been.

Yesterday a commenter on the Journal of Nuclear Physics when asked to assign a grade to the performance of the E-Cat SK so far:

gian
May 8, 2019 at 6:55 AM
Dear Andrea
A) Can you tell us how many plants are already operating with your customers?
B) Can you tell us your personal degree of satisfaction with the current operation of the plants with a value from 1 to 10?
C) Have any of your customers shown any degree of satisfaction with the choice to have accepted to test your plants in their companies? Also here you can give us a numerical index
(for 1-: -10) of the level of appreciation perceived?
I apologize for my bad English: mine is mediocre and google translate does what it can
to improve it.
Warm Regards,
Gian

Rossi’s response:

Andrea Rossi
May 8, 2019 at 8:19 AM
Gian:
A- in due time
B- 6/10
C- yes, I.d say 7/10
Warm regards,
A.R.

As always with Rossi we get very little explanation in his responses, so a lot is open to speculation. He has said previously that there have been problems to solve with the E-Cat itself, with the heat exchanger, and with the remote control system. The E-Cat SK is a brand new product, with no track record, so it is to be expected that there will be issues to deal with. Andrea Rossi has said that he is currently in a “pioneer market phase, with many issues to assess.”
