US Version 1.3 Cells:
We will consolidate our data, graphs, observations and feelings about protocol 2.0 and write up our conclusions. A few point are listed below:
-First live run (simultaneous run in US and EU)
-US live run with power through Celani wire in Cell A (#4)
-Calculations on chemical energy and apparent excess heat
When this is out of the way, we want to move in a different direction for the Celani V1.3 Cells. We want to make Cell B the new active cell and convert Cell A to a control cell. Here are a few ideas for this change:
-Take Celani wire out of cell A and analyze it. Leave NiCr wire in for heating.
-Take Celani wire out of cell A and cut a small piece off to analyze. Put the remainder in cell B to aid any possible LENR.
Optionally: Replace the NiCr wire in cell B with the Celani wire from cell A, or leave the NiCr in place and just add the wire from cell A as a third wire. Opinions?
CTC #1: 50m Constantan
We will continue this experiment based on some suggestions from Ecco, a frequent and much appreciated contributor. We will also start to prepare a report to discuss what we know so far. A few points below:
-Low resistance is difficult to trust the way we made the electrical connections
-LENR Stick starts to leak at high temperatures, leak not detectable.
-Aluminum foil allows us to reach a temp of +500C
We are calibrating the second CTC and LENR Stick combo with an oxide wire. An experiment has not yet been defined for this CTC and LENR Stick. Suggestions? We have some short lengths of Celani wire still available. Another loading vs resistance test is a possibility.
Water Flow Calorimeter: Multi-wire LENR Stick
We have completed calibration on the water flow calorimeter. After 6 runs we have a 200 mW confidence interval at 95% and a 300 mW confidence interval at 99%. These are at high power, 32 Watts input.
We just completed assembly of a new LENR Stick with a total of 3 Celani wires. One 270 layer wire at 69 cm long, one 350 layer at 70 cm long and one 400 layer at 46 cm long. The resistance of these wires will be measured using a common ground wire for all three.
