Some reports of this conference:

1. A.G. Parkhomov: Difficulty in Creating High Temperature NickelHydrogen Reactors

Abstract: “Difficulties encountered by the creators of high-temperature nickel-hydrogen reactors are described, caused by produced energy instability, high temperature, pressure and aggressive media in the active zone”

17. D.S.Baranov,V.N. Zatelepin: Gas-Dynamic Features of the Nickel-Hydrogen System
21. A.G. Parkhomov: Long- term tests of the nickel – hydrogen reactor with flow calorimeter

Abstract: “Nickel-hydrogen reactor continuously worked for about a month with excess heat of 70 W (heat excess above consumption of electricity was 15-20%). Heat measurement with an error of about 2% was carried out by water flow calorimeter similar to the StepanovMalakhov device”

22. M.F. Vereshchak, А.N. Ozernoy, I.А. Manakova, and I.V. Hromushin: On the Excessive Heat Generation in Nickel-Hydrogen System

“On the issue of excessive heat generation in nickelhydrogen system” (RCNT&BL-22) described the experimental results indicating that heating of the container with the mixture of nickel and lithium aluminum hydride powders is accompanied with abnormal physical phenomena resulting to excessive heat release. The observed phenomenon, resulted from sorption/desorption of hydrogen during thermal cycling, is characterized by explosive nature of the process. In our previous experiments the massive furnace was used, where thermal cycling was difficult to arrange. In addition, it is desirable that the container of fuel, if possible, have a lower heat capacity. This would lead to minimum heat consumption for its heating and, consequently, to improvement of the experiment sensitivity. This paper describes the installation, enabling to completely provide the required conditions for detection of the excess heat. Two stainless steel containers of equal mass and geometric shapes, one is filled with fuel, are connected in series in AC electric circuit. Three thermocouples control the temperature conditions inside the unit. The original method of measuring the energy balance can automatically detect all information and transfer it on the computer display. The obtained results are being discussed”

  • Gerrit

    So Parkhomov has difficulty in repeating his one(?) time successful run ?

  • Hank Mills

    No, that is not the case.

    Parkhomov has been trying to make reactors that can last for a much longer time before the lithium eats away at the casing or resistors. To do this, he has been using a much lower operating temperature and hence much longer COP. Remember, high COP in his systems doesn’t really kick in until 1200C or higher. In some cases, the COP remained at 1 until 1100C or so. If you want a reactor that will operate for the long term, this is totally unacceptable.

  • Hi all

    Each replication of the Lugano reactor in Russia and China just verifies Rossi has a working reactor and the years of development and skill to make them better than the competition.

    Kind Regards walker
