Blacklight Power has been putting out a lot of videos and audio interviews.
There is a July 29th audio interview. Sterling Allan, the host of Greater Things on the Rense Radio Network interviewed Mills for 43 minutes.
5:50 into the interview claims 700 joules released in half a millisecond in ten millionth of liter. Power density 100 billion watts per liter in the form of light
200 times the energy of burning hydrogen from hydrinos
Auger (mechanical system) feeds the fuel droplets into the roller electrodes. 1000 times household current causes the hydrinos to explode.
A very small quantity of highly conductive H2O-based solid fuel powder was loaded in to a hopper and gravity fed into the auger overhead of the rollers that were electrified with about 5V, 15,000A. The high current flow ignited the gravity fed fuel to produce 0.5 ms pulses of brilliant light having power and power densities of one million watts and 100 billion watts per liter, respectively. White light shows that the plasma is the same temperature as the Sun. The optical power can be converted to electricity using commercially available solar cells
The ignition thresholds are 5 V, 15,000 A. The energy to achieve ignition is about 5 J, and the light energy released is over 500 J per ignition. The 500 J is released in 0.5 ms corresponding to an optical power of 1 MW. With an ignition frequency of 2000 Hz, the optical power is at 100% duty cycle and the average ignition power is 5 J X 2000 Hz = 10 kW. Thus, the duty cycle of the 75 kW peak ignition power is 10/75 = 13%. The overall power balance is 10 kW input and 1 MW light output that can be converted conservatively to 400 kW electrical output.
Concentrator solar cells operate at 40% efficiency with sunlight. With our spectrum-adjustable light source, the efficiency should be higher. The energy to achieve ignition is about 5 J, and the light energy released is over 500 J per ignition. So, a self-running system is easily achievable with our current performance. BlackLight has signed contracts with three engineering companies to design and fabricate a generator capable of outputting scalable electrical output in the range of 250 kW to 10 MW comprising modular, scalable components of an optical distribution system and photovoltaic cell stack.
A prior interview the claim of the scalable power modules being commercialized soon (10-17 minutes in this other interview). They have high speed video of the explosion a fast supersonic expanding plasma for the first couple of centimeters. But less than 1% is converted as pressure. 99% is light. There is a shockwave which causes 10% increase in atmospheric pressure.
Auburn University Associate Professor has a write up that replicates a Randell Mills Blacklight power experiment that is evidence for the production of hydrinos. Hydrinos are fractional energy states of hydrogen theorized by Mills.
University of Illinois Professor validated the solid fuel as well
10-12 minutes high frequency feed system described.
conventional concentrated photovoltaics take 1000 times concentration
They would produce 50,000 times sunlight and reduce it to 1000 times concentration using mirrors.
He claims that the 3.51 keV xray emission detected by the NASA Chandra x-ray space telescope supports his hydrino claim
Here is Blacklight Power’s chapter talking about he 3.5 keV feature.
38 minutes in he talks about hydrinos
Since they are again claiming imminent commercialization of something that if true would have massive societal impact. I will have to cover this as it plays out. Either to the point where they were to again disappear for while (like last time) or where it actually is commercialized. No need remind me of their past failures and how they look / looked like frauds.
