“LENR: Unexpected Energy Future” — Energy 2.0 Society Presentation at IEEE in Madison Wisconsin

On April 15, 2015, Gary Scott and Tom Wind, both founding members of the Energy 2.0 Society were invited to make a presentation on LENR at the Madison, Wisconsin chapter of the IEEE.

The title of their presentation was” “LENR: Unexpected Energy Future”, which was put together to give an overview of the history and current status of LENR technology to an audience assumed to be largely unfamiliar to the topic. This meeting included attendence by members of the student IEEE chapter at the University of Wisconsin.

The presentation was originally billed to be presented by Gary Scott, but Energy 2.0 president Tom Wind joined in with the presentation to help save Gary’s voice who had been suffering from a cold.

Full disclosure: I, Frank Acland am a board member of the Energy 2.0 Society.

    Thanks Frank, Gary and Tom, for the presentation. It’s nicely put together and I enjoyed watching it a lot. A lot of good background background information too.

  • Gerard McEk

    Good presentation, nice slides!
    Good work done by the Energy 2.0 society. A pity the so few people joined the presentation.

  • Thomas Kaminski

    The presentation was jointly hosted by the IEEE-Madison Section and the UW-Madison IEEE Student Branch. There were about 35 people in attendance. Tom and Gary did a great job in presenting the material. Attendance would have been better, but the date was chosen just before the Bi-Annual Engineering Expo.

      Thomas, wonderful of you to pop in again. Totally off topic, but I think that you are the one to ask this question: do you know of a waveform simulator (excel or similar) that can convert an RMS voltage and current value into possible or feasible varieties of AC waveform that could make a given RMS value?

      • Thomas Kaminski

        Obvious: What you are asking for has infinite possibilities. Any such routine would have to be guided to explore only a small subset of the infinite possibilities. An infinite number of waveforms have the same RMS value. I use a simple circuit simulator to generate the waveform and then convert it to an RMS value. I use the Open Source “QUCS” simulator.

        • Obvious

          Thank you. Yes, only a limited set would be feasible. I was thinking of a set of basic single wave shapes, with adjustable inputs for some ranges to fiddle with, just to get a feel for what is possible. Then I can narrow down a subset to work out the fine details of. I’ll have a look at what you have suggested. I was hoping to avoid custom building something that probably already exists in some form already.

  • Thomas Kaminski

    It was at the University of Wisconsin-Madison hosted jointly by the IEEE-Madison Section and the UW-Madison Student IEEE Branch. I would say the audience had a large contingent of local Power and Energy Society members form IEEE.

      Right….so, like, what you are saying is that we are a cult…haha. Accurate. Haha.
