New Patent Application for Plasma Electrolyisis using LENR (Parkhomov one Inventor)

There’s a new patent application that has been filed by a Russian team with the World Intellectual Property Organization for a “Method and Device for Producing Thermal Energy by Plasma Electrolysis”. The applicant is listed as Yuriy Nikolaevich Bazhutov, and the inventors are Bazuhutov, Albina Gerasimova, Valeriy Koretciky, and Alexander Parkhomov. The last name will be of interest to many readers of E-Cat World. The patent was actually filed in January 2014, before Parkhomov began working on trying to replicate the E-Cat of the Lugano report

Here’s part of the abstract, which is in English on the application.

When applying a voltage of over 300 volts and current greater than 1.0 amperes to an anode, a plasma discharge is produced, allowing for low-temperature cold nuclear transmutation nuclear reactions in a near-anode area of the electrolyte, leading to intensive energy release and to the evaporation of electrolyte water, wherein an electrolyte pillar is maintained at a constant level and the function of a cathode is carried out by the inner portion of the electrolytic cell.

A full patent description can be found here (in Russian):

Here’s one interesting table that provides some experimental results from this system which show measurement of excess heat. A translation of the column headings (kindly provided by a Russian speaking reader) is this:

1. serial number 2. Composition of electrolite 3. time of discharge (min) 4. water added ( l ) 5. evaporation rate (ml/s) 6. Enthalpy of vaporization (ml/kJ) 7. Input power W (kW) 8. excess heat deltaW (%)

    Interesting. Seems relatively easy to replicate. You only need a proper water flow meter, a calorimeter and power meter. From the provided details is difficult to determine if their methodology is right.

    • Dave Lawton

      If you want a laugh here is one of my cold fusion nuclear accidents,it is because I
      forgot to put the flask on a rubber mat.

    • bfast

      And a 1 amp 300v power supply.

  • At ICCF19 Yury Bazhutov was quite clear that the material was not so important, and that it should work with spoon… I suspect it is not so simple.

    • Jonas Matuzas

      do you mean anode cathode material ?

      • my memory is bad, but I remember of a surprising remark of that kind.
        Note there is no requirement in the patent for the cathode material…

        • Jonas Matuzas

          In table 1 it is column “anode” and it is used Au- gold and W- wolfram.

  • Bob Greenyer

    Awsome – love that guy!

  • bfast

    As this approach seems so straightforward, maybe MFMP should put a team on replicating it. It doesn’t matter what LENR system is replicated, if it can easily and reliably be replicated LENR will be out of the bag.

    • Bob Greenyer

      Mathieu/JPB have already the best Electrolysis cell out there for this kind of thing – worth a try.

      • bfast

        Who is Mathieu/JPB? If the electrolysis system can be set up, a couple of easy steps will confirm the amount of water being boiled off, and walah, proof of LENR.

        • Bob Greenyer

          Mathieu Valat is Chief Scientist of the MFMP – based in France. Jean-Paul Biberian works with him 1 day per week at Mathieu’s Lab. They together built the High Pressure Mizuno wet-cell precisely for this kind of experiment, it is on an ultra accurate scale – so should be easy (relatively) I have suggested looking at it.

  • bfast

    If I understand the table correctly, the top entry shows 620% (excess heat deltaW), that’s a COP of 6.2, correct? That’s a lot!

    • Mats002

      Or COP 5.2 depending on who says. Anyway – that’s a lot!

    • I would say +620% is COP x7.2

  • Daniel Maris

    The more the merrier…and now we have the patents coming thick and fast, let’s hope replications and applications follow very quickly.

  • bfast

    I believe that this guy is basically doing the same thing. He thinks he’s getting LENR, but has no clear way of confirming it. It appears that Parkhomov et. el. have found a very simple way of confirming it.

  • Andre Blum

    I was planning for some time to ask the question here if anyone knew what Parkhomov is doing these days. It has been awfully quiet. Is this the answer to that question?

    • Jonas Matuzas

      It would be interesting if he would do experiments with extra lithium. He will be in Sochi conference. His report will be about isotopic ash analysis.

  • bfast

    I want to replicate this thing real bad! Does anyone know where I can get an appropriate power supply? I would be willing to pay a few hundred bucks for the thing. It’d need to be variable up to at least 350 volts, with at least 2 amp draw. It would not have to be regulated, or even DC — I can rectify it without much trouble.

    I’ve worked out the other details in my head — how to use an arduino to monitor the voltage, current and water flow. How to accurately measure the consumed water. I’ve even made some plans for “just in case” safety.

    Please let me know at bfast (at)

    • Jamie Sibley

      Try a stepper driven peristaltic pump $40 on ebay for the fluid metering.

      • bfast

        The fluid management is no challenge for me. Getting a controllable 300+ volts, that’s a bit of a challenge for me.

    • bfast

      I’ve planned to buy a 130v variac. But after rectifying, I should be at about 180v. I think I can stack another 120v on top of that to give me 240 which may rectify to 330v. That might or might not be enough.

  • bfast

    I know this is a very old thread, but I have a technical question if someone can help.
    What exactly does: 10 M NaOh mean? Ok, I know NaOh is lye, caustic soda. 10 M is a density measurement, mole I think. But, if I have 1 liter of water (1 kg) how much NaOh do I add to get a 10 M density?
