Brilliant Light Power’s Electricity-Generation Test of Automated Ignition System of Vibratory Conveyor-Fed H2O-Based Solid Fuel Powder
A very small quantity of highly conductive H2O-based solid fuel powder was loaded in to a hopper and fed into a vibratory conveyor overhead of rollers electrodes that were electrified with about 5V, 20,000A. The high current flow ignited the fuel to produce 0.5 ms pulses of brilliant light-emitting plasma having power and power densities as high as one million watts and 100 billion watts per liter, respectively. The optical power of the white light having the same temperature as the Sun was converted to electricity using commercial solar cells surrounding the plasma, and the power was conditioned/leveled with capacitor storage.
