From the description:
“In particular, the invention relates to a power generating apparatus having a reaction vessel or a cell for generating thermal energy by an exothermic reaction. As an exothermic reaction, a quantum condensate is carried out on a metal grid assisted electrodynamic process with hydrogen in particular. The participation of weak and strong interaction is not excluded. Preferably, a LENR is performed as an exothermic reaction, it stands for “low energy nuclear reaction”. This name has historical reasons, in the end, low-energy reaction products are produced by a fusion of nucleons.”
