Workshop on Rossi/Parkhomov Heat at CIAM (Russian Aviation Engineering Institute)

Here’s an interesting announcement about an upcoming workshop that is posted on the Russian Cold Nuclear Transmutation and CMM site (Google translated from the Russian)

19/02/2015 in CIAM workshop report “Physical and mathematical model of radiant heat in the combustion chambers of gas turbine engines and heat generation in the generators of Rossi – Parkhomov.”
On Thursday, February 19, 2015 at the Central Institute of Aviation Motors. PI Baranova, a regular meeting mezhotrasle-new scientific and technical seminar “Applied Problems of Mechanics-tinuous medium in aircraft engine.” Will make a report:

“Physical and mathematical model of radiant heat in the combustion chambers of GTE and heat generation in the generators of Rossi – Parkhomov. ”
(Authors: MJ Ivanov, VK Mamaev, MA Surin).

CIAM is the P. I. Baranov Central Institute of Aviation Motor Development located in Moscow, and according to Wikipedia, is “the only specialized Russian research and engineering facility dealing with advanced aerospace propulsion research, aircraft engine certification and other gas dynamics-related issues. It was founded in 1930. CIAM operates the largest aerospace engine testing facility in Europe, surpassed only by the USA’s Arnold Engineering Development Center and Glenn Research Center. engineering institute specializing in advanced propulsion”

For this institute to be holding a seminar on Rossi-style LENR shows that there are Russian scientists and engineers taking the E-Cat seriously, and with Alexander Parkhomov’s name mentioned in the same breath as Rossi, they are taking the work of their compatriot replicator seriously also.

    The Juggernaut rolls on, Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Curbina

    All in all, they look to be taking LENR much more seriously than what “the western world” is letting to be known.

    This stumbled me
    “Applied Problems of Mechanics-tinuous medium in aircraft engine.”
    Should be something like
    “Applied problems of fluid dynamics in construction of aircraft engines”

    Convert a Honeywell HGT1700 APU for 1,300kW electrical output.

    The Russians Could be the first to create useful LENR mechanical and electrical power from the Hot Cat design. Gas turbines offer the advantage of also allowing temperature control via air flow control. Once the the reactor is up to temperature, air flow could control the optimal temperature of the reactor with very little electrical power input to the reactor, resulting in a very high COP.
    A 10kW reactor could take less than 100 watts to control the electronics. This would be a COP greater than 100.
    With a turbine efficiency of 20% (conservative), this would give 500 watts of electricity with 400watts to spare. A 1,300kW APU will require a stack of hot cats, so first use the smallest turbine available and work on scaling the hot cats size. A 4kW electrical output turbine could require 10 hot cats.

    “For the Airbus A350, Honeywell’s HGT1700 APU will be its largest unit to date, delivering an equivalent power of 1,300kW ”
    “Both Honeywell and Hamilton Sundstrand use a single-spool engine
    architecture with a single-stage centrifugal compressor, combustors and
    two-stage high-pressure turbine. Overall pressure ratio is approximately
    11:1 with peak temperatures in the neighbourhood of 2,000°F (1,090°C)
    for Honeywell’s Airbus A350 design. The spool also drives an electrical
    generator and a compressor for pneumatic air flow to the aircraft’s
    environmental control system and engine start system. The 131-9
    typically drives a 90kV or 120kV generator and provides up to 168lb/min
    (76kg/min) pneumatic pressure, says Steven Chung, vice-president for
    marketing and product management for the APU line at Honeywell. Chung
    says the company has shipped more than 6,000 131-9 series APUs since
    1991, when it was first developed for the McDonnell Douglas MD90.”

    Note the peak temperature of 1090 C, a 1400 C Hot Cat can easily provide this temperature.

    Higher temperatures and higher compression ratio’s lead to higher efficiencies.
    Start with the smallest APU available that is past it’s aircraft use by date but is still good for ground based use. A model aircraft gas turbine may even work, one designed for a model helicopter or plane. Then one could fly the model for hours on end, switching out the model pilots, to demonstrate tons of fuel equivalent, far more than could possibly be carried.

      With 10Kw, 20% isn’t really conservative. As you scale up in Kilowatts, conversion efficiency will scale up to a limit topping out at about 60%. E-cats may top out at just over 50%
      Also, 20% conversion would be 2Kw. Not 500 watts.
      I believe you’re also assuming an only self sustaining mode & power only for the controls. I don’t think we can assume that because Rossi has been stuck at 25% input under best circumstances for quite a while.

      With 1Kw input at 25% of the time is 250 watts. Real world use may not be so optimistic. Also, the Hot cat at Lugano required 300 watts for the controls alone.

      From details leaked along with Rumor, I wouldn’t count on anything above COP-10 at this time & COP<20 at best. My speculation. you may end up with 1Kw to 1.5Kw net output of a 10Kw Hot cat. Enough to power a blow dryer?.

      That Speculation aside, I think the best opportunity for the Hot cat is smaller power plants. Not the Gigawatt systems your pointing out. Those would merely keep you chained to the massive central grid we have today. They need huge amounts of cooling water.

      The temperature potential of the E-cat(Probably around 800'C steam) would easily lend itself to high efficiency 50Mw to 100Mw plants close to point of use. Being smaller allows for economically using cooling towers instead of large quantities of cooling water.
      This also negates the energy loss in transmitting over a large grid & a savings in less grid infrastructure.
