New Brillouin Energy Patent

We’ve written several articles on Brillouin Energy and its founder, Robert Godes.  Based in Berkley, California, this company continues to make great progress with very little fanfare. Robert Godes has the industry’s most credible LENR theory, Dr. McKubre of SRI has stated Brillouin is the closest organization to commercializing an LENR product, and Godes has engineered an ingenious nickel-based wet and dry boiler system that drives the underlying physics of LENR.

“Robert {Godes} can hold his own again the top physicists in the industry, as well as chemical engineers and nuclear engineers, and he can blow them all away.” – Robert “Bob” George

The Godes-Brillouin Theory is based on a controlled electron capture reaction.  Hydrogen is loaded into a nickel matrix where an electronic pulse (Q-pulse) is passed through the system, resulting in a compressed lattice within the constrained system.  Mass is created and a proton is converted to a neutron, causing a tremendous loss of energy in the system.  Godes describes this process as a “nuclear freezer.”  Protium is converted to deuterium, deuterium is converted to tritium and tritium is converted to quatrium, resulting in a net energy out as the quatrium rapidly beta decays and Helium-4 and heat is released into the system.

Key to the Brillouin system is the use of proprietary electronics and controls designed by Robert Godes, an inventive electrical engineer.  Interestingly, a patent was recently issued to Brillouin Energy Corporation and published on January 7, 2014 for a high-speed gate switching system.  Referred to as a Gate Hyperdrive system, it reportedly improves the efficiency of any conventional electronically controlled electric motor, inverter or other power conditioning equipment by about 25%.

Techniques for overcoming many of the speed limitations of switching a gated device while protecting the device from damage provide a dynamic driving voltage to the gate of the device being switched. This dynamic voltage provides a way to overcome the complex impedances between the drive point and the actual gate allowing faster switching speeds. This dynamic driving voltage is provided by starting with a fixed amount of charge at a higher initial potential. The fixed charge and voltage are chosen so as not to exceed the device’s specified maximum gate current or the device’s maximum voltage between the gate and the source (punch-through voltage).

Brillouin expects to develop a system that can return 10 watts of thermal energy for every 1 watt of input electrical energy.  If successful, this technology could be tremendously disruptive in the fossil fuels energy industry.


Cold Fusion: A Necessity

Necessity is truly the mother of invention.  Energy drives mankind and fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal, will only provide us with about 100 years of energy.  Fusion is the answer, but replicating the energy generation of the sun or a star is never going to be practical.  Hot Fusion research is expensive and as seen in the video below, most researchers are tremendously close-minded and arrogant when it comes to other sources of fusion.

Cold Fusion is not nonsense; it is simply misunderstand because it requires an open-mind and a multi-disciplined background.  The Fleischmann Pons reaction has been replicated thousands of times and several companies are working towards the manufacturing of commercial models.  The goal is the same, harnessing the power of fusion, but until the academic world wakes up and realizes billions have been misspent to fulfill the fantasy of re-creating the sun, LENR and Cold Fusion will live in the shadow of false hope.

LENR in 2012

As 2011 comes to a close, the debate continues over the feasibility of cold fusion, or as it is now commonly being referred, a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction.  Is Andrea Rossi an engineering genius, or simply a hoaxter?  Will commercial applications of the Rossi Ecat be made available and will other “copycats” or competitive reactors reach the market too?  Will the current LENR buzz lead to more research and credible support from the scientific community?  Will fossil fuels be relegated to fossil (irrelevant) fuels?

Time will tell, but the following articles are all betting 2012 may be the beginning of an energy revolution.
