Claimed Plasma Electric Generator Specifications

The following post was made by Ted Rygas.

I received the following specifications for a plasma electricity generator from my friend. I expect a lot of criticisms.
//////////////////////////////////////

Technical Details
===================
Plasma-Based Electrical Generator (A.Rossi)

The Back-EMF is the main source of energy in the reactor.

EQUIPMENT AND PARAMETERS

1. Alumina ceramic cylinder:
– Diameter: 70 mm
– Length: 80 mm
– Wall thickness: 6 +/- 1 mm.
– The cylinder is commercially available.
– End caps: Two Tungsten solid disks, 7 mm thick, serving as a Cathode and Anode. The Cathode has a short replaceable spike in the centre, the Anode has a short, replaceable, flat cylinder, protruding into the ceramic cylinder. The replaceable parts are 7 mm in length.
– Cooling: ambient air, forced flow (fan).
– The ceramic cylinder has a Tungsten support.
– Mercury is not used.

2. Insert (boat shape), contains alumina powder mixed with 7 grams of Nickel hydride complex with carbon monoxide and 14-15 grams of LiF.
Alumina powder weight is 18 times larger than the weight of LiF and Ni-hydride complex combined. The mixture is compressed and partly sintered.

3. An external coil captures AC current, about 10% of the total energy generated. The main power output is a pulsed DC current, from the circuit passing through the plasma.

4. Startup.
A. Purging the chamber with hydrogen, then evacuation using standard laboratory-size, oil- based vacuum pump (5 minutes).
B. Several ionizing short sparks, momentary 15,000 to 17,000 V with the spark-current of 8A.

5. Operating parameters:
– Ratio of energy in, to energy out: 800.
– Operating pressure: 3.5 +/- 0.2 mm Hg
– Gases: hydrogen, some CO, Lithium. Any fluorine product of decomposition of LiF is absorbed by powdered alumina.
– Pulsed power output, aver. 9 A, at 2,500 to 3,000 V.
– Operating “priming pulses”: 22-25 V, average current 8 A, frequency 786 KHz, in bursts lasting from 6 to 7 seconds, followed by 14 to 15 seconds non-pulsing.
– Temperature of Cathode: 700 deg. C.
– Temperature of Anode: 900 deg. C.
– Temp. of the ceramic cylinder: 1,800 to 1,900 deg. C.

6. No standard radiation and no “strange radiation”. Muons and hydrinos are marginal (non-detectable quantities) any hydrinos will be stable in the cell for only about 8 min., resembling stability of neutrons. Muons will decompose without reacting with protons. Marginal, not detectable quantities of deuterium can be generated. Tritium will not be generated.

7. Control.
– Excitation: Very short pulses, operational frequency range from 750 kHz to 790 kHz, optimum 786 kHz.
– Length of the series of pulses: 6 – 7 seconds.
– Length of the pulse-free time: 14 – 15 seconds.
– Standard PID controller will be sufficient to keep the system stable.

8. Utilized main effect: Spikes of Back EMF.
– Electrical energy is recovered from the primary circuitry (current flowing through the plasma). External inductive coil (around the ceramic cylinder) gets about 10% of the total energy.

Update from Aureon Energy

Thanks to Gerard McEk for posting the following update from Aureon Ltd. At the moment I am not sure what the source is for this text. It looks like it could be a communication to current and/or potential investors.

February 11, 2021
To our Aureon Community,
Aureon Energy Ltd, has made tremendous progress with the SAFIRE project, despite the continuing challenges that 2020 has brought.

First, I want to thank you all for sharing our vision and supporting us with your personal investment. We have raised over $2MM with the SAFE investment opportunity, almost 10 times our original goal of 250K. This has allowed us to do more tests and experiments with the SAFIRE reactor with exciting results.

In our latest experiments, we found transmutation occurring not only on the anode but all through the sample. Furthermore, the manganese that is being made in the atmosphere has been discovered to be depositing onto the cathode! Keep in mind, there is no manganese in SAFIRE. This shows the predictions by the Wal Thornhill – EU are correct in that transmutation occurs in the Sun’s atmosphere.

We also produced a new video in September that illustrates more effectively the vision of Aureon for energy and remediation of nuclear waste. This also allows investors a virtual SAFIRE reactor behind the scenes tour without having to travel.

Since the updated video was released, we have had several exciting meetings with private equity investors that have reached out to us regarding our ‘A’ round of financing. We confirmed a tremendous amount of capital available and flowing into the market of clean-tech like SAFIRE, and Aureon is at the ‘tip of the spear’.

As you know, there are three areas of development Aureon energy has initially identified nuclear remediation, electrical energy generation, and material transmutation. The positive feedback we received from these meetings helped us prioritize our initial efforts into remediation, and increase the amount of capital we can raise.

We have increased our ‘A’ round from $20MM to $50MM to build a hot nuclear waste remediation reactor prototype. The additional capital will allow us to compress the project from 5 years to 36 months. Creating the remediation reactor first will also yield the designs, costs, and outputs for an energy and material transmutation reactor.

We are not doing any further work in the SAFIRE lab right now. All our efforts are focused on building out the project plan, budget, and private placement memorandum. Investors are keenly anticipating this opportunity!

Where all of this has brought us is that we need to close the SAFE March 31st 2021 and wrap up all the paperwork and legal no later than April 30.

If you want to invest more you can and there is no limit, but you will need to download the latest SAFE document for the correct date. Also, if you have already invested there is no need to fill out the qualification as an accredited investor.

Things are moving quickly now and we will be giving you updates quarterly so expect another update in April.

With best and warm regards,

Montgomery Childs
President
Aureon Energy Ltd

Video: Brilliant Light Power Washington DC Presentation

Randell Mills, CEO of Brilliant Light Power introduces the company’s SunCell technology at a presentation made yesterday (February 4, 2021) in Washington DC.

From the video description

“Brilliant Light Power produces 100,000W of continuous steam power at the Homer building in Washington DC. This is the historical first of commercial scale Hydrino power contributing to heating of an office building in the Nation’s Capital.”

Towards the end of the video, Mills turns the time over to Mark Nansteel who provides some information about the performance of the SunCell based on calorimetry tests he has carried out. He states he has carried out multiple tests with the SunCell, measuring electrical energy input into the system, and the thermal energy released into the water bath.

From his concluding remarks:

“In summary [for a five minute test], you put in 8000 kJ of electrical energy to run the process, and you get back 25,000 kJ of thermal energy. 25,000 minus 8,000 is 17,000 kJ difference so that’s the energy of the plasma reaction.”

POWERPASTE: The Hydrogen Technology for Small Vehicles (Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Press Release)

The following is a press release from The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, a German applied research organization based in Munich, originally published here: https://www.fraunhofer.de/en/press/research-news/2021/february-2021/hydrogen-powered-drives-for-e-scooters.html

Energy storage for small vehicles
Hydrogen-powered drives for e-scooters
Research News / February 01, 2021

Hydrogen is regarded by many as the future of propulsion technology. The first hydrogen-powered cars are already in action on German roads. In the case of e-scooters, however, installation of a high-pressure tank to store the hydrogen is impractical. An alternative here is POWERPASTE. This provides a safe way of storing hydrogen in a chemical form that is easy to transport and replenish without the need for an expensive network of filling stations. This new paste is based on magnesium hydride and was developed by a research team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Dresden.

Gasoline and diesel engines, which are powered by fossil fuels, will soon be sidelined by climate change. Instead, new propulsion systems will be required. One fuel with a big potential is hydrogen. Hydrogen vehicles are equipped with a reinforced tank that is fueled at a pressure of 700 bar. This tank feeds a fuel cell, which converts the hydrogen into electricity. This in turn drives an electric motor to propels the vehicle. In the case of passenger cars, this technology is well advanced, with several hundred hydrogen-powered automobiles already in operation on German roads. At the same time, the network of hydrogen stations in Germany is projected to grow from 100 to 400 over the next three years. Yet hydrogen is not currently an option for small vehicles such as electric scooters and motorcycles, since the pressure surge during refilling would be too great. Does this effectively shut out such vehicles from hydrogen technology?

POWERPASTE: the hydrogen technology for small vehicles

Not at all! Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Dresden have now come up with a hydrogen-based fuel that is ideal for small vehicles: POWERPASTE, which is based on solid magnesium hydride. “POWERPASTE stores hydrogen in a chemical form at room temperature and atmospheric pressure to be then released on demand,” explains Dr. Marcus Vogt, research associate at Fraunhofer IFAM. And given that POWERPASTE only begins to decompose at temperatures of around 250 °C, it remains safe even when an e-scooter stands in the baking sun for hours. Moreover, refueling is extremely simple. Instead of heading to the filling station, riders merely have to replace an empty cartridge with a new one and then refill a tank with mains water. This can be done either at home or underway.

The starting material of POWERPASTE is magnesium, one of the most abundant elements and, therefore, an easily available raw material. Magnesium powder is combined with hydrogen to form magnesium hydride in a process conducted at 350 °C and five to six times atmospheric pressure. An ester and a metal salt are then added in order to form the finished product. Onboard the vehicle, the POWERPASTE is released from a cartridge by means of a plunger. When water is added from an onboard tank, the ensuing reaction generates hydrogen gas in a quantity dynamically adjusted to the actual requirements of the fuel cell. In fact, only half of the hydrogen originates from the POWERPASTE; the rest comes from the added water. “POWERPASTE thus has a huge energy storage density,” says Vogt. “It is substantially higher than that of a 700 bar high-pressure tank. And compared to batteries, it has ten times the energy storage density.” This means that POWERPASTE offers a range comparable to – or even greater than – gasoline. And it also provides a higher range than compressed hydrogen at a pressure of 700 bar.

Suitable for e-scooters – and other applications as well

With its huge energy storage density, POWERPASTE is also an interesting option for cars, delivery vehicles and range extenders in battery-powered electric vehicles. Similarly, it could also significantly extend the flight time of large drones, which would thereby be able to fly for several hours rather than a mere 20 minutes. This would be especially useful for survey work, such as the inspection of forestry or power lines. In another kind of application, campers might also use POWERPASTE in a fuel cell to generate electricity to power a coffeemaker or toaster.

POWERPASTE helps overcome lack of infrastructure

In addition to providing a high operating range, POWERPASTE has another point in its favor. Unlike gaseous hydrogen, it does not require a costly infrastructure. This makes it ideal for areas lacking such an infrastructure. In places where there are no hydrogen stations, regular filling stations could therefore sell POWERPASTE in cartridges or canisters instead. The paste is fluid and pumpable. It can therefore be supplied by a standard filling line, using relatively inexpensive equipment. Initially, filling stations could supply smaller quantities of POWERPASTE – from a metal drum, for example – and then expand in line with demand. This would require capital expenditure of several tens of thousands of euros. By way of comparison, a filling station to pump hydrogen at high pressure currently costs between one and two million euros for each fuel pump. POWERPASTE is also cheap to transport, since no costly high-pressure tanks are involved nor the use of extremely cold liquid hydrogen.

Pilot center planned for 2021

Fraunhofer IFAM is currently building a production plant for POWERPASTE at the Fraunhofer Project Center for Energy Storage and Systems ZESS. Scheduled to go into operation in 2021, this new facility will be able to produce up to four tons of POWERPASTE a year – not only for e-scooters.

NASA Team Reports Neutron Production From Co-deposition Electrochemical Cells

Thanks to Bob Greener for posting about the following:

A team from the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio has published the following article

Title: “Electrolytic co-deposition neutron production measured by bubble detectors”

Journal: Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry 19 January 2021

Authors: Phillip J. Smith*, Robert C. Hendricks, Bruce M. Steinetz

Link: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1572665721000503

Highlights of the article:

• Bubble detector neutron dosimeters measured electrochemical cell neutron activity

• Case control: PdCl2/LiCl/D20 cells were compared with CuCl2/LiCl/D20 control cells

• Experimental cells exhibited neutron activity greater than controls: 99% confidence

• Highest neutron-generating experimental cells produced dendritic cathode deposits

• Neutron activity cannot be explained by chemical reactions, only nuclear processes

Documents Reveal US Military Testing of Technology Described in “UFO Patents” (The Drive)

Thanks to Stephen and Toussaint for posting the following link to an article published January 26, 2021 on The Drive website written by Brett Tingley which discusses inventions of U.S. Navy engineer Salvatore Cezar Pais who has written patents for technologies such as a High Frequency Gravitational Wave Generator; a room temperature superconductor; and an electromagnetic ‘force field’ generator.

https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/38937/navy-ufo-patent-documents-talk-of-spacetime-modification-weapon-detail-experimental-testing

The article reveals that documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request show that hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent on the high energy electromagnetic field generator invention, and that the technology has national security implications, and commercial and military potential. The documents report that experimental tests of this technology taking over 1600 hours have already been carried out by military researchers.

The articles includes some images and reports from this testing, but the author emphasizes that there is no conclusion from the test that either prove or disprove the “Pais effect”.
