Lightening demonstrates, a 50x1cm steam plasma tube will release a constant 2.4 megawatts of heat. From 1.5x10-15cc of regular water a year. We start off the plasma using the electronics from a fluorescent light. At four atmospheres you will then self sustain. While we maintain a plasma pressure.
1 H2O+PL->E2+L+X-ray no radioactive waste. No fossil fuel burn. So no carbon or nitrogen oxide.
A 1.5 KM x2cm steam plasma is a lightening bolt, that makes five tonnes of helium gas. Which converts to 2.5x1030W - thank you Einstein for E=mc2
A little steam turbine, can use contactless bearings. Where the Spinning turbine centres itself, and does not require any ball bearings of grease: no maintenance cost.
We get nearly 500 kW of electricity. The turbine does cost 2000 UK pounds. Compared to 1000, for a thermoelectric generator. A house uses just 8kW of power.
I recommend building a steam plasma tube and thermoelectric generator. Then the next year, opting for a the steam plasma tube and little steam turbine. Oil will cease to have any value in 6 months.
The national grid will buy our power for 0.02 UK pounds, per kilowatt hour. 100,000 UK pounds an hour. Constantly. This is going to make so much money.
So people will site their next plasma generation plant, ½ mile away down the road. A month later, eight plants. Then 64. You get the idea. Exponential wealth creation.
I gave the idea to Sheffield University 2001. There were appalled. Their major funders for Engineering Materials, where nuclear power.
And we had just invented a Power System that runs of regular water. Uses no fossil fuels. Generates no carbon or nitrogen oxides.
Safe, clean massive free power.
