Electric Fusion Systems

  • Difficult to judge at this moment.

    The 'technology' section of their site does not show yet.

    Patent application(s) are not yet published if the inventors are the founders.

    Fusion caused by lithium vapor combined with a hydrogen plasma is not unique and claimed by others as well.

    This paragraph, at the end of the page, calls the attention as it claims direct electricity production from the plasma "oscillation". This would set it completely appart but I don't know if this would be really capable of capturing the energy of the reaction efficiently:



    How does EFS produce electricity?

    As the fusion reactions cycle into and out of a fusion state, they create a burst of electromagnetic pressure which oscillates back and forth based on how our design drives the reactor. This Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) is harvested into electrical coils wrapped around the reactor and subsequently rectified via traditional power supply designs into AC or DC output at the voltage, current, and frequency for the desired application, be it 800VDC for a transportation application, or 35 kilovolts AC in an electrical substation.


    In principle the information delivered is scant and one can assume too much, specially considering the background each one may have. But I can't discard it outright as "vaporware" as I think the basic premise is valid given what we know today from many other projects, specially in SAFIRE, the problem is that this is wrapped in the appearance of being based on mainstream science, which I would say it can't be because only from electric arcing fusion is considered impossible by mainstream, but we LENRists know better.

  • Although Wikipedia has many faults, it’s section on aneutronic fusion reactions is quite useful.

    The electric product reactions are discussed. Maybe someone has a new thing, but the reactions in the candidate table are considered to be the most favourable, and unfavourable side reactions that are often overlooked are also mentioned for several. Most new companies floating something will be attempting one of these in the list.

    I would agree they tossed a lot of buzzwords in the mix as they also talk about electron screening.


    The only thing that really stood out for me was the claim of direct electricity production.

  • Harvesting electricity from oscillating plasmas is not new. It has appeared in quite a few patent applications and claimed by other startups.

    They called it EMP harvesting, indicating they have an unstable plasma fluctuating at random it seems.


    Best way to harvest these electromagnetic radiations is to develop a system that can act in resonance. Also the receiving coil then needs to be in full resonance to have an optimized energy transfer and harvesting.

    Resonance is probably also required to give the ions sufficient energy to overcome the Coulomb forces to enable fusion

    (if possible at all).

  • Can anyone comment on this approach?


    https://electricfusionsystems.com/#tech

    This approach was implemented in hydrowave technology in 2006 - Vladimir Stepanovich Afanasyev managed to implement an "outstanding technical trick" - without supplying electricity to the reactor, without having a cathode or anode in the reactor in the form of some kind of metal rods - electric discharges were initiated in his reactor, thanks to which was nuclear fusion and the trigger of this fusion was the e-capture reaction on a free proton, which he received by "processing dirty water" ...

  • You wrote - "Resonance is probably also required to give the ions sufficient energy to overcome the Coulomb forces to enable fusion" ... On this site I have already posted a lot of material that proves that Maxwell's "electric charge" does not exist in nature - Maxwell was exposed and he was wrong, there is no "electrical force" in nature and therefore there is no Coulomb barrier in nature and therefore nothing needs to be overcome - in this sense, but only the secondary magnetic field needs to be overcome ... The results of the Japanese in 2013 will help you - it can be seen from them that the Coulomb barrier is 8 orders of magnitude smaller than the theoretical barrier -

  • Hello, Thanks so very much for your interest!

    While as has been noted, the EFS LEEF approach is not LENR, it is unique.

    We have updated our FAQ section with the following information:

    HOW DOES EFS’S APPROACH ACHIEVE PRACTICAL FUSION?

    The standard of fusion system performance is the Lawson Criterion. The Lawson criterion is a figure of merit used in nuclear fusion research. It compares the rate of energy being generated by fusion reactions within the fusion fuel to the rate of energy losses to the environment. The criterion consists of three basic elements: density, temperature, and time. These elements are used to calculate a value known as the “Triple Product”

    EFS’s LEEF Triple Product is favorable for the follow reasons:

    1. EFS’s LEEF fuel operates in a supercritical fluid state with a density orders of magnitude higher than any other known approach. LEEF densities are literally off the chart used to document the plethora other approaches.
    2. Ion temperatures orders of magnitude higher and measured in MEV as opposed to KEV seen in other approaches result in significant chain reactions during every fusion cycle. Again, LEEF energies are literally off the chart.
    3. In other approaches stability of magnetic confinement is the primary driver of the confinement & Fusion burn time. This has been a failure point for other approaches. The LEEF process is cyclical and fusion EMF energy is extracted every cycle via magnetic induction at very high efficiencies exceeding 90% as compared to the ~30% seen in “heat” based extraction used in other approaches. Our induction field by nature is not a steady state field nor should it be lest we suffer the same issues plaguing other programs.
    4. In a preignition state our fuel exhibits a modified coulomb barrier by orders of magnitude through a phenomenon known as electron screening.

    Hello k.e.kopp , thanks for coming to LENR-forum and commenting on our thread about the EFS LEEF technology. The quoted statement is related to the oscillating nature of the plasma achieved in the electric arc that is mentioned? What temperatures does this happen at?


    Albeit you may disagree that this is LENR, the extended definition of LENR includes systems that are by no means low energy, but on levels that are still considered (by ITER pushing experts) to be of low probability of fusion, and you will see that plenty of those systems are using electric arcing, being electric Arcs capable of nuclear reactions themselves, so we consider your system to be on the LENR family nevertheless.

    The chain reacting plasma is not homogeneous and ion energies range from relatively cold to many MEV.

  • Thanks for joining!

    Would this involve an ultra dense form of hydrogen?

    Can you tell us whether this has been determined by solid measurements or is this a theoretical hypothesis?

    There is no unknown or theoretical physics. The state of the hydrogen pre-ignition is liquid so calculated using Avogadro's number, thereafter supercritical and not yet been measured.
