Brilliant Light Power Achieves Self-Sustaining Reaction

Pretty crazy update from BLP today (read more about them here).

They refactored the Sun Cell to use dual liquid silver metal injectors for the electrodes, which solved the problem of the reaction being so strong that it was blowing holes through solid tungsten electrodes in just a few seconds.

What’s pretty crazy is they are reporting that they can actually shut the power off to the electrodes and the EM pump; yet the reaction will continue in a self-sustaining manner. You can actually see this take place in the video.

BLP states, “It is predicted that with sufficient silver vapor pressure, the power will persist by a self-sustaining hydrino reaction. Moreover, as designed, when the cell is operated as a silver boiler, the EM pump power may be terminated as well such that the parasitic load is zero except for the power consumed in electrolysis of water to provide the hydrogen fuel. In fact, the power did persist at the same level for long duration after the ignition power was terminated (See sections of the run indicated by the ignition-off video captions).”

Here’s a look at the reactor:

Update 11/2/2016

I just read through the latest BrLP presentation event notes and found their current planned development and production timeline. They are projecting the commercial units to produce 100 kW of power.

BrLP has contracted with Columbia Tech to have them do the prototype and manufacturing workups. CT’s Chief Technology Officer is projecting initial field testing of prototype units to take place in 6 months, with pilot commercial units available 6 months after initial field testing completes. Phase 1A design began on November 1st.

Masimo Semiconductor is responsible for creating the commercial photovoltaic converter comprising a denser receiver array of concentrator multijunction photovoltaic cells that will wrap around the black-body light source. Masimo’s Head of Business Development is projecting the photovoltaic array to be ready for the prototype field tests on time.

Looking at the slide notes from Masimo, they are projecting 15.5kW output for the first prototype, and 28.5kW for the second prototype.

Here’s Masimo’s published timeline:

-Week 1: July 27, 2016…. Masimo Semi currently under TPV Cell contract and drawings
-Week 10: Oct 19, 2016…..Masimo Semi currently under gDRA prototype development contract
-Week 14: Nov 4, 2016…..1-Junction Cells on GaAs & InP complete
-Week 16: Nov 18, 2016….gDRA Prototype 3-D model complete
-Week 24: Jan 13, 2017….gDRA Prototype (1-J) Single TRU complete
-Week 28: Feb 17, 2017…. 2-Junction Cells on GaAs or InP complete (requires contract)
-Week 40: May 7, 2017….gDRA Prototype (2-Junction Cells) complete (requires contract)

So looking at the notes, Jan 13, 2017 is a big day because that’s the day the first geodesic Dense Receiver Array will be completed (gDRA). The gDRA is the photovoltaic dome that wraps around the black body light source. Once that’s done, we could see a self-sustaining prototype generator produce power for the first time not too long after that. So perhaps a fully working prototype will be wheeled out for a public demo sometime near the end of January or in February.

Update 11/4/2016

Brilliant Light Power (BrLP) just released video of its October 26th Industry Day.

Video 1: Colin Bannon, Chief Technology Officer for British Telecommunications, discusses BT’s energy usage and their desire for a clean source of power. [BT is an absolutely massive telecom corporation, with a market cap of around 36 billion.  They are about half the size of Time Warner to put them in perspective.]

Video 2: Kert Davies, Executive Director of ClimateInvestigations.org, discusses energy production and global warming (feel free to skip this one.)

Video 3: Dr. Randell Mills gives a complete overview of how the SunCell works and the latest test data.

Video 4: Dr. Peter Jansson of Bucknell University speaks on the independent validation of the SunCell system.

Video 5: John DeCarlo of Columbia Tech discusses how their applied engineering team is working with BrLP on the prototype of the reactor assembly, as well as helping plan for mass production.

Video 6: Brad Siskavich of Masimo Semiconductor discusses their work on the photovoltaic cells that will produce power from the SunCell reactor.  This is a pretty interesting lecture that’s worth watching.  He’s projecting they shouldn’t have too much trouble obtaining a 100 kWs from the SunCell in the future, while their initial prototypes will produce around 10 to 30 kWs.

Video 7: BrLP’s Dominic Jones discusses their long term market strategy.

    I am hungry for more news about this fantastic new energy source, but very little is writen about it.

        Nah, that’s just a bunch of old theories about tech they’ve been trying to commercialize for nearly 30 years. It’s kind of depressing how many times they’ve claimed to be on the verge of producing a commercial product that never materializes.

        • Brett

          The book shows the scientific progression behind the scenes, filled with twists and turns, but ultimately advances in a meaningful way toward commercialization. Mills has always been overly optimistic, true. But now things are different. They are working with two large, legitimate firms – Columbia Tech and Masimo Semiconductor, to prototype their reactor, and CT has publicly stated that all the remaining engineering barriers to commercialization have been resolved. So hopefully we are all pleasantly surprised with their progress this year.

          • flakingnapstich

            Given the ongoing lack of a commercial product I’d say the book is more of an extended series of excuses for nearly three decades of consistent failure.

            Regardless of if you think Hydrino generation is a viable power source, Mills and his Keystone Cops grade engineers aren’t going to be the ones bringing a product to market. For example, here’s an article from 2008 where they insisted they were on the cusp of releasing a commercial product:

            http://pesn.com/2008/05/29/9500481_Blacklight_commercially_ready/

            Mills and company are experts at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

          • Brett

            Haha, why am I arguing with this guy on a 3-month old forum? Anyway dude, read the book if you want to know something about this. Or don’t and stay ignorant and waste your day posting comments. Or discussion forums. Those are always very “robust” in my experience. As opposed to books with 50-page-long bibliographies.

          • flakingnapstich

            David Icke books also have massive bibliographies. That’s doesn’t make them accurate.

            Doesn’t it concern you that Mills has been floating claims about being a few months from commercial production for nearly 30 years without a single product hitting the market?

          • Demented Avenger

            “…read the book if you want to know something about this.”

            Does the book explain how they managed to circumvent first law of thermodynamics?

    • flakingnapstich

      There’s a very robust discussion about the company and its nearly 30 years of research at: http://www.internationalskeptics.com/forums/showthread.php?t=315572

    I always thought Telesa was right … we he observed AC power cycles …
    think of this … think of a sphere you at the center … now think about how many charged particles (electrons) are in a sphere that has a radius of one light second (second for convenience) … now think a certain antenna can attract all those particles in a second … to its self … now think faster than a second ..um power is still very great … now think as we move thru galactic space we encounter sparse and dense areas of charge ….

    more power sometimes … other times not so much… moving our bubble thru space “recharges” the space … and power received thru our antenna…point is perpetual power from Galactic movement… get your head around that …

    so they have locked into just very small amount of this galactic power….

    • flakingnapstich

      These guys have been spinning their wheels for nearly 30 years, always promising they were on the verge of producing a commercial product but never managing it. They change the company name and mix-up the tech but it’s one, long, sad tale of failure.
