Mizuno Claims Production of Excess Energy that ‘Far Exceeds Input’ in New LENR Experiments

Thanks to Jones Beene on Vortex-l for posting a link to a new paper written by Tadahiko Mizuno of Hydrogen Engineering Application & Development Company in Sapporo Japan, titled “Observation of excess heat by activated metal and deuterium gas” and posted on the LENR-CANR.org website here.

This is a detailed paper with much data, and many details to digest. I’m sure it will be studied in depth, but here are just a few key points:

Abstract:

“Reports of heat-generating cold fusion reactions in the nickel–hydrogen systemhave been increasing. The reactions mainly involve nickel with other additive elements. The authors of these reports emphasized the importance of an extremely clean system in the electrolytic tests in which excess heat was generated. Therefore, we attempted to detect excess heat after reducing impurities to a minimum by cleaning the electrode carefully and then fabricating nano particles in situ in our test system, without ever exposing them to air. As a result, energy far exceeding input was continuously obtained. In the best results obtained thus far, the output thermal energy is double the input electrical energy, amounting to several hundred watts. The generated thermal energy follows an exponential temperature function. When the reactor temperature is 300°C, the generated energy is 1 kW. An increase of the temperature is expected to greatly increase the output energy.”

The reactor used was a stainless steel cylinder in which were placed two pieces of nickel mesh which were cleaned first with detergent, then with water, alcohol and acetone. There are two electrodes inside the chamber, one of which is wound with palladium wire. There is an aluminum ceramic heater in the center of the reactor which is wound with palladium wire. There is also a heater wound around the outside of the reactor.

After evacuating the heater, deuterium gas is added to the reactor at “several hundred Pa.” The reactor is then heated and held constant for a number of hours. High voltage is then applied to the palladium wire around the ceramic heater inside the reactor, which forms a plasma. There is then a cycling of heating, degassing and re-gassing, while increasing temperature, and finally the system is let to drop to room temperature.

High voltage is then applied to the palladium electrode, which releases D2 gas, and causes plasma to form on the electrode. Eventually this causes palladium to be deposited on the nickel mesh, and this, according to Mizuno, causes the condition that generates excess heat.

Mizuno writes:

“The excess power increases with the temperature rise of the reactor. For example, the excess power is 100 W at 100°C, 315 W at 200°C, and 480 W at 250°C. Excess power of 10 W and 20 W was generated even when the reactor was near room temperature.”

[…]

“We speculate that the excess heat would reach the order of kilowatts at 1/Tr = 0.001, i.e., approximately 700°C. We confirmed that the excess heat increases exponentially with reactor temperature.”

[…]

“Activation of the metal surface, that is, removal of the oxide, nitride, and carbide layers, is particularly important. Heating and discharge treatment in deuterium gas is an effective method of activating the metal surface. The use of highly pure gas and the thorough removal of released gas during the surface treatment are also important. “

Mizuno notes that since this experiment was carried out, that he has improved the conditions for excess heat production. Appendix A describes some of the changes, which includes not using detergents or other similar cleaners of the nickel mesh because they may introduce impurities. Rather, they polish the nickel with emery paper, clean with hot water, and rub palladium on the nickel. In this appendix he suggests that Hydrogen as well as Deuterium could work.

Motor Generator Prototype with Circuit Shows Significant Power Gains (Allan Shura)

The following post has been submitted by Allan Shura

I became interested in new clean energy technologies in 2009 when reports that the US Navy had confirmed excess heat with cold fusion not long after physics professor Yoshiaki Arata of Osaka University in Japan made the first successful public media demonstration of cold fusion.

I was then interested in numerous claims about self looping generators providing excess power. I started experiments nearly 2 years ago and because I have had good results progressively I want to advance the project to the next level.

The motor generator prototype is a platform for the development of power generation and electrical products. I will start an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign during this week as a way for this technology breakthrough to move forward with the opportunity to become widely available.

This project is a DC permanent magnet motor configuration. The orientation and configuration of the motors induces magnetic and electrical oscillation for recapture of force and accelerates to capacitance of the prototype. Since easily available and widespread commonly available components are used in the device the IP could be described as an industrial process. The addition of a particular circuit results in an immediate large increase in power measurable by both instrumentation and physical observation.

There are several combined interactive forces in this dynamic system.

Video: Acceleration Under a load

February 26 2017

This video explains the orientation of the permanent magnet motors at a power and voltage around 17 watts. These tool torque motors are oriented 90 degrees and accelerate under a limited constant supply of power from a lab grade DC power supply. The cycle is opposing or 90 degrees offset at a given instant in time.

This is the normal motor generator configuration except for the offset orientation of the motors and magnets in the motors.

Normally the foundational math would be consistent as the assumption is that the power would be drawn for a load from the non powered side or the generator side.

Large industrial units of DC motor generators are used to transform low DC voltage to higher DC voltage with the increased number of magnets and coils in the generator side of the large industrial transformer. In AC however the
usual solid state or core and wire coil transformer is used to raise the voltage.

The local area spacing between the two sides has a boosting magnetic or electromagnetic force along the armature shaft and in the open space between some of which is thought to be magnetic and also radio or frequency hertz communicative. At the zero point or shaft connection there is phase polarity interaction as hypothesized but not recorded yet in instrument research of this project.

The observable effect is acceleration beyond what would be usually seen.

That is usually angular momentum for some minutes dependent on the speed and mass ratio. Acceleration beyond the normal time and range of angular momentum for a motor would indicate more power being generated. Acceleration under a load under these conditions is not demonstrated by the foundational math probably due to a lack of variables considered.

The importance of the brush to armature angle and electromagnetic forces in the phase shift cycle of rotation is touched on in the mystery of the amplidyne videos for formative ideas theory and hypotheses.

Video: Renewable Energy Generator – voltage acceleration

May 14 2017

A live test and data is recorded. This configuration A 26.9 watt DC resistive bulb is used as a load. The configuration is the same as the previous video that showed an accelerative effect. This test shows the addition of a circuit that results in a
large increase in power in the dynamic system. The data is shown for the increase in power.

The data tests the difference in power for a 26.9 resistive watt light load:

1) without the electromechanical generator.
2) with the electromechanical generator
3) with the electromechanical generator and the wave regenerative circuit

The test showed both the digital power supply readings
and digital multi meter readings for power input independent of each other.

Findings:
There was a large increase in power with the added circuit.

There was much less than expected increase in the power input with a balanced bulb load added using the circuit. For example an apparent 18 watt bulb load under multi meter readings showed only a 3.6 watts increase in input power using the circuit together with the power generating system.

The data is shown first in the video and then the corrected data on the website:

Video: Energy Generator Circuit Test

August 3 2017

This is a test to help resolve 2 parameters.

First the current limiting 6.75 watt AC to DC adapter is an alternate source of constant DC current as a control compared to the voltage regulation of the lab grade DC power supply used in the Video: Renewable Energy Generator – voltage acceleration toward the validation of power gain effects.

The effects of power gain if using the applied circuit at the lowest level of voltage and power for the system to run is tested.

Findings:

Using the AC adapter DC limited current input:

1) A single motor alone will not run on the power input but has a strong pulse.

2) Two 26 watt lights will glow and resonate at the low power three will barely blink without a constant glow.

3) The configured motor generator unit will not run on the power available.

4) Condition with the circuit added:
The configured motor generator runs and is able to glow two lights and maintain a higher than expected rotation and torque using the same limited DC power input of the adapter.

5) The results and observations show a net gain in power using the circuit using the same limited input of power supplied.

These are the observed results showing an increase in electro mechanical torque. A hypothesis could be regenerative amperage current standing square wave pulse oscillation and or other theories of interactions within the
system.

Lava Flow LENR in Nature? (P. Oeoht)

The following comment was posted by P. Oeoht in the Edmund Storms video thread, and I thought it raised an interesting point. It was made in response to a comment by f sedei who was wondering what Ed Storms might consider LENR occuring in nature.

Consider volcanic lava flowing along a slope on the surface of the ground for day after day, at about 1 metre per minute, without a source of heat to keep it molten.

Now consider a ton of molten aluminium applied to an identical slope, also without a source of heat. How long would the Al remain molten? One minute, perhaps!

One of the standard volcanic temperature anomalies is seen when the temperature of the lava at the mouth of the volcano is found to be significantly LOWER than that up to 100 metres down the lava stream.

New Patent Application for High Efficiency Electricity Generation from LENR Systems using Thermionic Conversion

A new patent application has recently been filed by two US-based engineers that claims high efficiency electricity generation from ‘low energy thermal heat generation systems’, also referred to as LENR systems. The title is: “METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY ELECTRICITY GENERATION USING LOW ENERGY THERMAL HEAT GENERATION AND THERMIONIC DEVICES”; the inventors are Rodney T. Cox and Hans Walitzki.

Link to the patent application is here

Here’s the abstract:

A system and method are provided for generating electric power from relatively low temperature energy sources at efficiency levels not previously available. The present system and method employ recent advances in low energy nuclear reaction technology and thermionic/thermotunneling device technology first to generate heat and then to convert a substantial portion of the heat generated to usable electrical power. Heat may be generated by a LENR system employing nuclear reactions that occur in readily available materials at ambient temperatures without a high energy input requirement and do not produce radioactive byproducts. The heat generated by the LENR system may be transferred through one or more thermionic converter devices in heat transfer relationship with the LENR system to generate electric power.

The patent applications references LENR as a means of heat generation, specifically mentioning the work of Andrea Rossi and George Miley. I would expect that as LENR become more widely recognized as a genuinely new system of heat/energy production, there will be many patents filed in a similar vein, claiming new ways to exploit LENR.

Nano-gap Hydroton Reaction Proposed by Ed Storms in New Video (Cold Fusion Now)

Ruby Carat at Cold Fusion Now has posted a new video on YouTube titled “Edmund Storms HYDROTON A Model of Cold Fusion”.

Here’s the description:

“HYDROTON A Model of Cold Fusion describes the nano-gap and hydroton theory with Dr. Edmund Storms, a nuclear chemist and cold fusion researcher now retired from Los Alamos National Laboratory .

“It picks up where Storms’ 2014 book The Explanation of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction: An Examination of the Relationship between Observation and Explanation left off.

“He proposes a unique chain of hydrogen and electrons that would assemble in the nano-cracks and nano-spaces of materials, fusing through a slow resonance process where smaller bits of mass are converted to quanta of energy through coherent photon emission.

“If true, it would describe an extension of the 100-year-old conventional nuclear theory.

“Several of the Nano-gap Hydroton Hypotheses are now being tested for confirmation.”

Questions for Carl-Oscar Gullström

Mats Lewan just made this comment in the LENR initiation thread, I thought I’d put it in a separate thread in case people might not see it.

Hi all—if I would get an interview with Carl-Oscar Gullström who helped Rossi with the recent theoretical work on the E-Cat, what would you want me to ask him?
If you prefer not to post here you can email me at mats@matslewan.se.

LENR Initiation in the E-Cat QX (GiveADogABone)

The following post has been submitted by GiveaDogaBone

Q: What is it I now believe we know that Sternglass[1:] did not know in 1951?

A: The anode DC current has to be fixed at the bias level that allows NDR(negative differential resistance) to operate. NDR operation requires the anode plasma fireball[2:] to be extent. Once the AC current, light and RF emissions are oscillating due to the pulsating fireball, progress will be made.

Sternglass’s neutrons (without Lithium6 neutron induced fission) seed the LENR reaction in Rossi’s QX. The neutron flux then has to rise to provide net 20W of Li6 fission. At that point basic fission reactor neutron flux control theory takes over; the most important things being negative coefficients of reactivity in respect of temperature and neutron flux density.

Sternglass discovered that he could synthesize neutrons via 20-35kV arcs in hydrogen-filled X-ray tubes

Ithaca, N.Y. August 26th, 1951 518 Dryden Rd.

Dear Professor Einstein,

You may be interested to learn that in the course of the past two months I have been able to obtain experimental evidence for the formation of neutrons from protons and electrons in a high-voltage hydrogen discharge.

The experiments were carried out with a demountable gas X-ray tube capable of dissipating 1,200 watts filled with hydrogen and surrounded by about 6 inches of paraffin on all sides. Voltages up to 35 kV and currents up to 40 mA were used and silver and indium foils were placed near the tube walls. The neutron induced beta-activities were measured with a thin-walled aluminum Geiger-Muller counter in a lead housing of about 3-4” thickness giving a background count of 15 counts per minute. The initial activities in indium and silver were found to be 6- 7 counts above background, decaying with the respective mean lives of 2.4 min for Ag and 54 min. for In. Having a standard neutron source, this arrangement could be calibrated roughly so that the rate of neutron formation can be determined to be on the order of 10-20 neutrons/sec at 38 mA and 25 kV and an estimated pressure of 10-2 mm of mercury in the discharge.

I remain sincerely yours,

Ernest J. Sternglass

Steven Greer: Rossi’s Going about Things All Wrong

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for sharing a link to a recent video which contains an audio recording of a seminar by Steven Greer, the founder of the Disclosure Project, which attempts to make public surpressed information about such subjects as UFOs, and advanced technologies (e.g. medical, propulsion, energy) that he believes should be released for the benefit of humanity.

Below is a transcription of part of his talk which deals with Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat — which is found at the 2:32 mark in the video below.

This portion is Steven Greer responding to a question about zero point energy. He was asked if the genie was now out the bottle, if anyone was now close.

“Yes, they can contain them,  and yes there are people close, in fact there are people who have them. Let me give you one example. We believe …  there’s a fellow name Rossi, in Italy, who has a device that generates apparently overunity excess energy and heat, although no one knows the mechanism and action. He’s keeping it a trade secret. Very big, and probably fatal, fatal error.

“The people I’ve met with who’ve developed these systems have all either taken it to their graves, or had them confiscated before they can get them out the public significantly because of some central strategic errors that have to do with the idea that they are going to be able to handle that technology like you would a new app, or a new Silicon Valley computer system.

“When you’re dealing with something like this, it has to be done completely openly, open source, and you have to have millions of people know what’s happening in real time. Stan Myer took his knowledge to the grave. If you look at the workshop I did about a year ago here, there have been literally hundreds, or maybe thousands of people who have discovered this same effect, and they’ve all made the same set of predictable errors base on them handling the technology as if it were a conventional technology, when it is not. 

“And so I would say, yes, there are people out there who are working on it, some who I believe have. I have a friend at Stanford University who knows a man at the National Security Agency who confided that they are tracking what Rossi is doing very carefully, which indicates to me that where there’s smoke, there’s fire. If Rossi’s listening: heads up.

“But tactically and strategically he’s handling it in a way that guarantees failure. Because by keeping it tightly held, coveting, trying to keep it secret, overly concerned with monetizing the technology, instead of getting it out, he is going to step into every booby trap that has been set out there, and the chances that it will make its way out to the public is infinitesimally small, and that’s not just true of Rossi’s technology, but of every single person who has that same idea.”
