New Blacklight Power Video Shows 'Electricity Generation Test'

Thanks to pelgrim108 for sharing this latest video produced by Blacklight Power. BLP has provided the following description of the video on YouTube

BLP’s Electricity-Generation Test of Automated Ignition System of Auger-Fed H2O-Based Solid Fuel Powder:
A very small quantity of highly conductive H2O-based solid fuel powder was loaded in to a hopper and gravity fed into an auger overhead of rollers electrodes that were electrified with about 5V, 20,000A. The high current flow ignited the gravity fed fuel to produce 0.5 ms pulses of brilliant light-emitting plasma having power and power densities of one million watts and 100 billion watts per liter, respectively. The optical power of the white light having the same temperature as the Sun was converted to electricity using commercial solar cells surrounding the plasma.

This video is certainly quite a bit longer than the previous test videos they have published, and certainly more spectacular. According to the description above the system is being fed with about 100 kW of power, but there’s no real way to calculate the amount or power output from the numbers provided. I see various arrays of LEDs on this test system, and also some kind of grid structure which I can’t quite figure out what it is. The whole effect quite chaotic, and I’m not sure if there are any conclusions that once can draw from this, since there’s no data provided — but it’s a quite a change from previous videos they have put out.
