    Redux


    Ascoli's useful observations on the 2016 data (that is the 100% excess power 2017 published results that preceded the R19 and R20 results):

    • The input power is measured differently between the control and active run spreadsheets. In the control

    I did. It was not helpful. I'm not really interested in that. The 2017 data posted was not complete. Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong data though. I'm referring to a link that you posted some time ago.

    Has there ever been a spreadsheet posted of the raw data for R20? There are a lot of disagreements that seem to be partly occurring due to a lack of data. If the spreadsheet needs cleaned up a bit, then it seems like that would take a lot less time…

    My intuition has been damn good in separating the BS from the Shinola in several past sets of claims. In fact, it has been 100%.

    The jury is still out on this one and I have been as neutral, in fact supportive, as possible under the…

    I'm looking at this bit by bit, so not claiming any specific issue is known a problem, but nothing it as a posible problem.

    In this case PSU effciency can be low (like, 10%). So with calibration input measured before the…

    Daniel, i would agree with you but for two issues:

    I) Mizuno has corrected data based on efficiency etc and not documented that. So we'd need to verify whether this was done with the power input, because it would be easy to do it…

    Sure is. But I am not going to replicate a whole bunch of incomplete and conflicting specifications. Besides, I will be in the bush for another 10 days or so, starting tomorrow, possibly with (crappy) internet this time, but I…

    Do you have a chart of this? Best to plot input power on X and apparent excess on Y instead of time on X and input power and excess on Y. You can see the relationship much better with the former method.

    • Air flow calorimetry is known to be less accurate than water flow calorimetry. Reason for switch is not convincing

    Since his calorimetry shows zero excess after a short initial transient it seems quite accurate? That is, unless these systems have some sustained temperature-dependent LENR reaction as Mizuno observed.

    The low (max 10%) transient…

    Review of Mizuno's Air-Flow Calorimetry.

    NOTE 1: I am *NOT* an expert
    NOTE 2 : I am ONLY concerned with the fan (blower), not with the internals of the box or the conduction/convection/radiation from the walls of the box

    This data is all in a google…

    Thanks for picking up on this with ACTUAL measurements.

    Heat is heat. If the system is sufficiently exothermic to overcome losses, and sufficient heat is returned to the reactor from the cooling system (if there is one), the reactor will run without further electrical heater input. If the returned heat is…

    THH: Either reactor could be retested with external checking and calorimetry and the level of assurance in these world-changing and disruptive results would greatly increase. I can't see why Mizuno would be against that?

    IMO, a much more straightforward and simple explanation should start by observing that, during the active and control tests, two different resistors were used to heat the two reactors: the active reactor was heated by an internal resistance heater,

    I think JedRothwell mentioned that the problem was that water cooled the reactor wall (presumable locally) too much and 'put out the fire'. That seems possible and would rule out immersion calorimetry which looks temptingly…

    Mark was it not a sudden change to abandon the "industrialization" of the e-cat SK, with it's 8 out of 10 customer satisfaction scores and robotic manufacturing lines? That seemed sudden to me.
