Cyclone Power Announces Moving R&D Activities for Waste Heat Engine to Ohio State University Research Program

We’ve discussed the Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. here before, specifically because of the involvement of Purdue University physicist Dr. Yeong Kim, an LENR researcher who is providing consulting services for the company with regard to the Cyclone Waste Heat Engine that the company is developing. Cyclone Power appointed Dr. Kim because of his LENR interests, and the company hopes their engine could be used with an LENR heat source.

Today Cyclone Power issued a press release announcing that all of its research and development activities were now being transferred from in-house to The Ohio State University’s Center for Automotive Research (CAR).

Here’s an excerpt from the release:

‘Christopher Nelson, President of Cyclone and Managing Director of the company’s Waste Heat division, stated: “We have reached a milestone event for Cyclone and the evolution of our engine technology – a transfer of the physical engine, testing equipment and program management to our engineering partners at CAR . . .

‘Dr. James H. Durand, Director of Testing, Engineering and Software Development Services (TESS) at CAR, stated: “Based on the great progress accomplished in Florida and with Cyclone’s continued support of the program, we are confident that we can advance the Cyclone WHE-DR engine through its remaining steps to commercialization. We have the personnel, experience, expertise and strong desire to complete this project successfully.”‘

This does sound like an important step for Cylcone Power. OSU’s CAR program seems to be extensive and reputable, and it would seem that they would certainly have personnel with expertise there to help with the development of the Cyclone Engine. It will be interesting to learn about the progress of this project — especially if the next milestone involves commercial production of the Cyclone Engine. Andrea Rossi has said he is interested in testing any commercially available product such as this for coupling with an E-Cat.

    Cyclone Power was months away from going broke, they had a small office in Pompano Beach where for years they were pumping their Stock with sensational ANNOUNCEMENTS, like Deal w/ China and nothing ever resulted from these spams other then investors getting burned again, Dr. Yeong Kim was a saving grace, otherwise they were all going back to work. I hope Dr. Yeong Kim is aware there guys at Cyclone Power are not business people and were hanging on by a shoe string before he gave them his good name. Good Luck!

      It looks like they were loan-sharked from what I recall after looking into them, with some ridiculous financial contraption (good for somebody’s cash flow … I mean the economy). Which is a shame because it looked like they might have something cool.

    But if BLP CIHT works as advertised, this has not much use.

    Here’s a little more on the WHE-DR engine. It would appear to be a match with the DGT or E-CatHT for heat source.

      I agree, but still a questionable investment, but I do own stock.

    Compared with a solid and simple confirmation of LENR+ rather than a convoluted confirmation of LENR+ (which this is), this is just another “oh hum, so what”. Only those willing to put in the time and who understand the context does this announcement mean anything.

    The Defkalion reactor seems more suited for automobile use than the Hot-Cat because it is 100% electrically activated and more controllable. The Hot-Cat seems better suited for low cost large scale natural gas power production.

    • for hybrid car, seems OK.
      not direct throttling.

    Translation: We are out of cash, transferring all operations to Ohio State, whether they like it or not.
