New Brilliant Light Power Patent for “Thermophotovoltaic Electrical Power Generator”

A new Brilliant Light Power international patent application for a “Thermophotovoltaic Electrical Power Generator” has been published by the World Intellectual Property Organzation.

As usual for BLP, this is a very long document (345 pages); here is the abstract:

    Except that Peery got there first with the ‘molten metal fuel’

    • Steve Savage

      Yeah Bob, exactly right. The conventional scientists try to explain this with an existing theoretical model, I think they know it is inadequate. Mills has spent much more time and intellectual capital on an alternative theory… Yet to be proved wrong!!

    • Axil Axil

      A proton and two electons form a fermion which cannot be aggregated into a collection, Shoulders said that he had aggregated a billion of these “novel pseudo-particles” and kept that collection together overnight. Such an accomplishment can only be done by using bosons…even spin particles…0,1,2…

      The fermion concept is a model that describes how real particles behave. A fermion is a odd spin particle…1/2, 3/2,…

      By theoretical construction, the the fermion must be consistent with the Pauli exclusion principle — two particles or more cannot be in the same state. This fits the description of electrons and all other 1/2 integer spin particles.

      The antisymmetry of the fermion wave function serves to model the Pauli exclusion principle.

      If we tried to load fermions into a box(artificial atom) each electron would need to has an energy that is 1 unit greater than the maximum so far loaded. If you tried to load a billion fermions into that box, the last fermion would need to have an energy of a billion units.

      The boson loads into the box with no problems. All the particles can have the same energy…0.

      This is why the hydrino cannot be a fermion. It is not an electron, It must be another particle that is a boson. This means that the hydrino might be ultra dense hydrogen which is a boson.

      Hydrogen is a boson…a 1/2 spin proton and a 1/2 spin electron…adds to a spin of 1.

      • Bob Greenyer

        No, billions of electrons worth that self organise into clusters of quanta.

        These electron based clusters can entrain and shield the mass, charge and inertia of ions.

        CERN / mainstream physics refers to these as Condensed Plasmoids (just to be different) and says that they can accelerate ions via plasma wakefield accelleration – this is partly what is going on in Dr. Egely’s reactor.

        Please look at the work of Dr. Harold Puthoff where he shows, via Casimir, how these charge clusters can form stable structures.

        These structures have been observed by NIST. I have seen the holes made by them in Russia (they and I did not know what had caused them then), in the work of Alan Smith on lead electrodes etc.

        • Axil Axil

          These electron clusters are not going to eat away at a plastic fuel bottle after weeks of storage. They’re not going to leave tracks in photo emulsions and they’re not going to be stored overnight as Shoulders describes. They’re not going to be found floating in the steam of the electrolysis experiments as J Fisher observed or become embedded in rubber gaskets for days which leave tracks in CR39 detectors.

          • Bob Greenyer

            I do not have enough data to be certain that Charge Clusters or their sudden breakup could create such effects.

          • Axil Axil

            IMHO, the most difficult job to explain in LENR is self maintained persistence of the LENR effect over long periods of time as witnessed by self sustain mode. Nuclear derived energy is stored, self directed, and recycled in a positive feedback loop for extended periods of time. It also seems to me that a cluster of electrons is incapable of such long term energy storage and self reapplication in a gainful manner.

          • Bob Greenyer

            If heat (IR) and light / other photons can lead to CCs and CCs enable LENR which leads to IR/Light/Other photons, you have self sustain.

    Leave out the hydrinos and maybe this patent has some value. Hydrinos are like angels — no one will ever see any evidence of one until after death.

    Approximately, 5MW in about 1/4th the E-Cat container.
    The spatial arrangement of components looks far more improvised.
    Highly suitable for demands of typical Housing community / HOA.
    2000 A/cm^2 seems to be the magic target.
    Systematic global approach.
    Dr. Rossi will have to be fast and first to the market, or at least, will be compelled to!
    Universal sizing and modularity seems to be Dr. Rossi’s strength. Smallest the Sun-Cell can get seems to be Truck or Train or Tank Engine.
    Or a centrally connected wired system. Hence, the beloved-child of the controllers.
    Rossi offers wireless independence. Hence the biting snakes.
    2L coca cola sells for the same price as the 330 ml bottle. Venue matters. Portability matters.

    Review of The Grand Unified Theory of Classical Physics, by a student of the theory

    ByEric Hermanson, MS Nuclear Engineering, MIT, 1994on April 1, 2017

    Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase

    I’ve
    studied The Grand Unified Theory of Classical Physics (GUTCP) by Dr.
    Randell Mills as much as one can in their spare time over the past five
    years. In my opinion, being formally educated at the graduate level in
    Nuclear Engineering, Mills has achieved what he sought; a set of
    relationships that “represent the unification of the fundamental laws of
    the Universe, Maxwell’s Equations, Newtonian Mechanics, Special and
    General Relativity, and the Planck equation and the de Broglie
    relationship where the latter two can be derived from Maxwell’s
    Equations”.

    Mills essentially “reverse engineered” the true
    nature of the electron, which can be described fully by classical
    physics, and importantly, this solution accounts for the electron’s
    spin; the spin of the electron is no longer a mysterious quantum
    property that must be assumed to be inherent. The spin of the electron
    is a real phenomenon that arises from the nature of the movement of the
    current over the bound “electron orbitsphere” of the Hydrogen atom. By
    looking at hydrogen excited states and studying the transition between
    an excited state back to the ground state, Mills ties together the
    radiation that’s emitted with the “real” current flow of the electron.
    This allows a classical equation of the photon to be derived, and that
    equation (i.e. excited state photon emission during the relaxing of the
    excited state down to ground) can be associated with the radial change
    in the current function of the orbitsphere.

    From this comes the
    realization that there may be inverse/fractional states of the principle
    quantum number of the Hydrogen atom wherein “n” for Hydrino states is
    equal to: n = 1/p; p=2,3,4,…,137. (Note the connection to the fine
    structure constant; in fact Mills also derives the mass ratios of the
    leptons and lepton/neutron mass ratio wherein the equations are
    functions of the fine structure constant alone).

    To derive the
    free electron, which is a flat plane lamina disc of circular current
    loops (not a 2-D spherical membrane of great circle supercurrents as is
    the case with the bound electron), Mills takes the z-projection of the
    bound orbitsphere and arrives at the free electron. This is a very
    ingenious derivation.

    Volume 1 covers the electron orbitsphere
    model and Hydrino physics, Volume 2 is a book unto itself wherein Mills
    describes functional groups of chemistry in a fully classical manner,
    using building-block type logic and chemistry. This will have a
    significant impact on the field of chemistry (see millsian.com).
    Finally, in Volume 3, Mills does the hard work of discovering and
    deriving the Grand Unified Equivalence that has the fundamental energies
    of particle production equal to each other during production. Of the
    many new cosmological and astronomical discoveries in Volume 3, the most
    important of which is probably the realization that the universe is
    cyclical in nature; it’s essentially a harmonic oscillator with an
    inherent restoring force. This gives cylical behavior wherein the
    universe goes through phases of expansion and contraction driven by
    particle particle production and annihilation; when matter is created
    from energy the universe contracts by an infinitesimal amount, likewise,
    when matter transforms to energy, the universe expands. This model
    explains why astronomers have observed galaxies that are apparently
    older than the universe itself; the answer is that these galaxies formed
    during the end of the contraction phase and are already in existence by
    the time the thermodynamic arrow of time reverses at the interface
    between contraction and expansion thereby allowing chemical reactions to
    become spontaneous, thus allowing life to arise.

    Claims of imminent commercialization that don’t pan out. This is a valid criticism of BrLP. It is a valid criticism of Rossi has too.

  • MorganMck

    Just spent some time browsing through nearly 100 pages of mechanical drawings and illustrations at the back of the application. These were obviously views rendered from a CAD model of the SunCell which appears to be very detailed and complete. I’m sure there will be more engineering issues, but the design maturity is looking pretty impressive IMO.

    Given the design complexity exposed by the drawings, I will be quite surprised if the SunCell is very decentralized anytime soon. Contrary to the BrLP sales pitch, I think we may well see utilities line these things up in long rows (I hope I’m wrong about that BTW).

    • Omega Z

      Randell Mills(BLP) has been selling license to produce electricity to Utilities for many years. It is how he obtained much of his funding for his research. You would be correct in thinking it is aimed at grid power.

      It is assumed by many people here at ECW that the general population wants their very own power generators. I would suggest they merely want cheap and dependable energy at a flip of a switch. They don’t want the responsibility of coming home to no power and scrambling to find a tech service to come and fix it. Likely being days waiting for the service man to arrive. Should it be a weekend, sure, but at $200 just to show up. The actual repair and labor will be more.

      In all probability, a localized grid with such technology could provide all your energy needs far cheaper then it would be for a private generating system. To begin with, a local grid needs far less overall capacity Per capita.

      One should not exclude the cost of all the apparatus to provide the electricity. And being local, they could even utilize the waste heat for hot houses and such. Also, strategically located in the community, the waste heat could even be used in water and waste treatment plants reducing other consumer costs.

      However, at some point, should some people prefer to be off grid over cheap energy, that may also be an option.

      • GreenWin

        Hi Omega,

        You are correct in identifying micro-grids as the best solution to big grid overhead and localized, generator failure. Borrowing IT’s networking model in a neighborhood grid, prevents home-owner blackouts, proffers free energy to Community centers, schools, municipal buildings and micro-UPS services to all subscribers.

  • Omega Z

    Mill’s is just selling to the audience at hand. What he says changes with the audience. He has often misspoke on topics (intentional or not). Like hooking up a Suncell and running everything in the home on DC WITHOUT the need for a convertor. While some devices would work on DC, most will not and can have very detrimental results. Note he stated this in the realm of one not needing to change out current devices in the home which makes the statement nonsense.

    Golden Rule: Leave brain surgery to the brain surgeon. Leave auto mechanics to the auto mechanic.

  • Omega Z

    Everything breaks and everything needs regular maintenance. Try waiting on a service tech. The grid is reliable because of redundancy. And, should a problem occur, technicians are present 24/7.

    Probably the cost of private ownership of a Suncell will be off putting for most. However, another thing to consider is- You’re producing 300KW per hour at 1 cent per kilowatt. Cheap enough unless like most people you only use about 800-KWh’s per month. That cheap energy just became very expensive.

    You also need to consider the heat island effect if everyone has their own Suncell. It could easily become intolerable. E-cat, Suncell, both have the same issues.

    Tristan,

    ask Neil deGrasse Tyson where is a vial of “Dark Matter” – he and “consensus science” claim it comprises 94% of our universe, But we can’t see it, measure it, or prove its existence. Never-the-less NSF, PBS and Bill Nye will swear its “for real” While you’re at it ask him about the mating habits of unicorns – both are inventions of impoverished minds. IMO. 🙂
