Optimizing Self Organization of Out of Equilibrium Systems
Traditional gas and electrolytic CF/LENR systems focus on inducing reactions on or just within the surface of metallic fuel. The result is likely the creation of many thousands or millions of small scale self organized structures: resulting in active zones that are difficult to observe or control in real time, if at all. Conversely, the route which is the topic of this thread is to produce a singular large scale (macro) self organized structure induced by out of equilibrium conditions. A number of players have been (for many years) and are currently taking this route including The SAFIRE Project, George Egely, Kiril Chukanov, Electric Fusion Systems, BLP, and multiple others who can be found if no where else in the patent literature. By carefully studying their observations many similarities can be noted along with paths towards optimization of these systems. Thus, the goals of this thread are three fold:
1) To compare and contrast the varying systems and especially the self organized structures they produce.
2) To document how these parties are already enhancing and/or optimizing their systems.
3) To come up with an overall model(s) for a highly efficient system.
A few facts should be stated from the very start.
- In a well engineered setup, the production of self organized structures is not difficult at all. The production of "ball of fire" mode plasmas in plasma tubes and multiple concentric double layers was achieved generations ago in labs that would be considered primitive today.
- The outputs produced by these systems have proven to be harmful to human health and well being (for example the extreme UV light produced from the plasma) and destructive in that powerful backspikes can damage power supplies and measurement devices. Electromagnetic effects can even damage unattached nearby equipment.
- Precise control is critical to optimizing the level of self organization in these systems. In far out of equilibrium systems, tiny changes of input power or other variables can produces huge changes in output or structure. It could be visualized that devices like these are trying to keep a very thin coin balanced on its edge. This is certainly possible and has been done many times, but it requires precision.
- There's a wealth of information floating around the internet about these systems. It's too much for any one person to keep in their head. Thus, team efforts are needed.
