Alexander Parkhomov on Calibration in His Test

There have been a number of questions raised about what kind of calibration Alexander Parkhomov did to ensure accuracy of his heat measurements when he carried out his Hot Cat replica test.

Peter Gluck, too, said he was getting some comments on the topic and asked if I might contact Prof. Parkhomov, anf ask about the topic, which I did.

This is his response:

Dear Frank,

Measurements with the electro heater which isn’t containing fuel at the power up to 1000 W were taken. The quantity of the consumed electric power after boiling of water and the amount of heat necessary for heating and evaporation added for preservation of initial level, coincided within 10%.
