2004 Free Energy Plan
I don't know how many of you saw Bush's state of the union address -- or how many regularly watch world news at all. About this time of year we have several feet of snow on the ground and we half-hibernate indoors until Spring breaks. For us it's a real plus since we have more time to track world events and plan real energy strategies for a developing world.
That crazy speech Bush gave mentioned nothing about putting people back to work, or capping the runaway inflation. All those phony numbers the government hands out are meant for religious republicans & other morons -- to keep confidence in a failing illegitimate administration.
The real numbers for unemployment are between 10% and 18% , while inflation runs about the same. I don't know about anybody else, but my food & fuel costs go up at least 10% per year!
It's high time for the U.S. population to take back liberty and freedom from the despots and tyrants in big business & government who have eroded the constitution over the years.
Some practical things we can all do is to decrease our dependency on imported oil. Last year (2003) we concentrated on using waste oil to power a Tesla turbine in steam mode. We covered the basic construction of our turbine and the basics of pyrocatalytic burners, finishing up the year with a computer model of an entire system.
This year we are taking a bold move into the ultimate space age "free energy" system -- solar to electricity.
Even though usable solar energy may be available for only six months out of the year in northern climates such as outs, it is still an important piece of the puzzle in reducing fossil fuel dependency.
A complete solution for global energy needs is to combine all pollution-reducing, non-nuclear energy resources along with energy conservation practices.
Some areas of the world such as Africa, the Middle East, South Asia and Central/South America are still in a developing world state. The people are, for the most part, money- and industry-poor, but solar energy rich. When this fossil fuel debacle begins to "play out" (around 2010-2020) those solar rich regions of the world will become the new energy gold mines. If the people living in those regions play their cards right, they may become the new 21st century energy barons of the world.
In any case, those of us who are now working at reducing our out-of-pocket expenses for utilities will continue to be ahead of the big biz energy game.
Solar System Overview
A solar steam electrical generator system is basically the same as our waste oil system in that steam supplies kinetic gas energy to a small-horsepower Tesla turbine, which turns a geared-down or high speed alternator. Electrical energy is stored in a battery bank for on-demand use. The low energy steam may be recycled through a closed loop system (preferably) or allowed to vent into the atmosphere.
Referring to Figure 1, we see a CAD model of our proposed system.
A solar steam generator system can be broken down into three main subsections:
Since we have already covered section (c) in past articles, we will only concern ourselves this year with the dish and tracking system. In future articles we will cover topics such as:
Even as many people here in the U.S. are falling on hard times, we see a need worldwide for responsible management of dwindling resources, and new initiatives in alternative energy. If we wait for idiots in government and big biz to move on these issues, it will never happen.
This year we have an opportunity to lead the world in a real "free energy" direction. Solar energy is the future of mankind but somebody, or a group of somebodies, will have to pave the way. Are you with us?
