A 1m row of oil burners only release 45kW. And produces CO2 – though it does fire up a steam plasma, and so does nuclear fusion.
Interesting enough, Zn or Ti plating the boiler plate or engine, doubles the nuclear fusion we do. Ti is appropriate for the cylinders of an engine.
So Ti plating a Wankle engine doubles the fuel efficiency, and decreases engine wear.
But oxidising the C does take in energy. We can fire up a steam plasma in a glass tube, using the electrics from a fluorescent light – and above 4 atmospheres it self-sustains.
There is no chemical source of light or X-rays, so using a Geiger counter of a gas or oil flame proves Molecular Nuclear Fusion. I told Sheffield University in 2001. They ended my PhD into Global Warming in a hurry.
Energy with no CO2 – as I have told Hillary Clinton – my FB friend. Incidentally the global weather has been cooling for 21 years – with plants and bacteria leaving a pre-industrial 2 parts per million CO2 in the air. Climate Change is fiction from nuclear power.
Who due to their plant turn-over, and the 4th biggest emitter of CO2 on Earth. Stop doing hyper toxic nuclear fission from uranium, makes the Paris treaty totally insignificant.
So a 50x1cm steam plasma in a glass tube reaches 3000oC, and liberates 1.2MW: the surface of the steam plasma reaches 10millionoC – the temperature of radiant stars.
This is the temperature of fire tubes in a steam engine, which did not melt, as they were sat in a water bath. So we should run a steam cycle.
If we run at 2 atmospheres, we will need to continue supply current. But we drive thermoelectric crystals, and they turn heat into power. See http://www.digikey.co.uk/en/articles/techzone/2011/oct/thermoelectric-energy-harvesting
We have a fine mesh of tubes fed with hot steam. Carbon 0, non polluting and free electricity.
