SunCell™

Solid Fuel Catalyst Induced Hydrino Transition Cell

SunCell™ Generates Electricity Directly from Water Freely Available in the Humidity in the Air

The BlackLight Power, Inc. SunCell™ produces millions of watts of power in a volume that is one ten thousandths of a liter corresponding to a power density of over an astonishing 100 billion watts per liter. As a comparison, the electrical output power of a central power generation plant is typically 1 billion watts from a boiler 100 million times larger. BLP’s safe, non-polluting power-producing system catalytically converts the hydrogen of the H2O-based solid fuel into a non-polluting product, lower-energy state hydrogen called “Hydrino” wherein the energy release of H2O fuel is 100 times that of an equivalent amount of high-octane gasoline.The H2O-based fuel ignition produced brilliant plasma, an essentially fully ionized gaseous physical state of the fuel comprising essentially positive ions and free electrons.

The SunCell™ plasma has the same temperature as the Sun emitting the same solar spectrum of light but at extraordinary power equivalent to 50,000 times the Sun’s intensity at the Earth’s surface.

Using readily-available components, BlackLight has developed a system engineering design of an electric generator that is closed except for the addition of H2O fuel and generates 10 MW of electricity, enough to power ten thousand homes.

Optical power is converted directly into electricity using mass-produced commercial photovoltaic cells (solar cells).

Simply replacing the consumed H2O regenerates the fuel.

Remarkably, the cell of the concept device is less than a cubic foot in volume.

Applications and markets for the SunCell™ extend across the global power spectrum, including thermal, stationary electrical power, motive, and defense.

SunCell™ power is independent from existing infrastructure:

  • grid and fuels in the case of electricity, and
  • fuels in the case of motive power

The SunCell™ power source is a further game changer for all forms of transportation:

  • automobile, freight trucks, rail, marine, aviation, and aerospace

The power density is one million times that of the engine of a Formula One racer, and ten million times that of a jet engine.

The SunCell™ uses cheap, abundant, nontoxic, commodity chemicals, with no apparent long-term supply issues that might preclude commercial, high volume manufacturing.

At 50,000 times brighter than sunlight, the corresponding reduction in the area of the photovoltaic converter gives rise to a projected cost of the SunCell™ of about $100/kW compared to over ten times that for conventional power sources of electricity.

10 MW SunCell™ Generator System Design and Operation
  1. Fuel flows from the hopper into a pair of gears that confines about 0.5 g aliquots of highly conducting solid fuel in the interdigitating regions wherein a low voltage, high current is flowed through the fuel to cause it to ignite. The ignition releases about 10 kJ of energy per aliquot. The gears comprise 60 teeth and rotate at 1000 RPM such that the firing rate is 1 k Hz corresponding to10 MW of power. The gears are designed such that a fuel powder layer in direct contact with the gears does not carry the critical current density for detonation whereas bulk region does such that the gears are protected from erosion by the blast from the ignition of the fuel.
  2. Brilliant-light-emitting plasma power is directly converted to electricity using proven photovoltaic cells that are commercially available for converting light to electric power. The system is modular, scalable to output up to 10 MW with the commensurate photovoltaic stack area.
  3. A portion of the electricity powers the source of electrical power to the electrodes and the rest can be supplied to an external load following power conditioning by the corresponding unit. Heat that is removed from the gear hub by an electrode heat exchanger flows to a regeneration system heat exchanger, and the rest flows to an external heat load.
  4. The plasma gas condenses to product comprising the solid fuel without H2O.
  5. An auger such as one used in the pharmaceutical or food industries transports the product powder to a regeneration system wherein it is rehydrated with steam wherein the steam is formed by flowing H2O from a H2O reservoir over the hot coils of the regeneration system heat exchanger.
  6. The regenerated solid fuel is transported to the hopper by an auger to permit the continuous use of the fuel with H2O add back only.

Glossary:

BlackLight Process: A novel chemical process invented by Dr. Mills causing the latent energy stored in the hydrogen atom to be released as a new primary energy source.

Hydrino: Hydrinos are a new form of hydrogen theoretically predicted by Dr. Mills and produced and characterized by BLP. Hydrinos are produced during the BlackLight Process as energy is released from the hydrogen atom as the electron transitions to a lower-energy state resulting in a smaller radius hydrogen atom. The identity of the dark matter of the universe as Hydrinos is supported by BlackLight’s spectroscopic and analytical results as well as astrophysical observations.

SunCell™: Each SunCell™ comprises two electrodes that confine a highly electrically condutcive H2O-based solid fuel that serves as a source of reactants to form Hydrinos. A low-voltage, very high current (about one thousand times that of household currents) ignites the water to form hydrinos and cause a burst of brilliant light-emitting plasma power of millions of watts that can be directly converted to electricity using proven light to electric power photovoltaic conversion technology.

Photovoltaic or Solar Cell: Each cell comprises a flat panel of a semiconductor material that exhibits the photovoltaic effect, a method of generating electrical power by converting radiation such as solar radiation into direct current electricity. Light absorption in the semiconductor material creates energized charge carriers of opposite polarity that are collected at corresponding negative and positive electrode contacts on opposite sides of the flat panel to create a voltage
