We copy nature. Heavy rain does Molecular Nuclear Fusion, setting up a charge between the cloud tops and the ground.
1 H2O+TU ->He2++O2++4e-+E2+X-ray
In a glass tube, we can give a pulse of power at 2,000 V to set up a steam plasma, which converts the molecules into heat and so we can drive a small steam cycle, and get at massive free power.
3 H++r n0->E2+L
4 O+s n0->4H+
So we do the following
The X-rays are like those you get from a boiling kettle, the light is not important. What is, is that a 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres produces 1.2 MW of high pressure steam.
We can direst 80% of this to two turbines connected to two small enclosed helicopter blades.
The rest we send to a steam turbine, to generate power. 4% we use to drive a Carnot cycle, that condenses the steam, and returns 85% of the heat to the boiler chamber.
So basically we produce 500 kW, we direct to the blades turbines – giving us 480 kW of lift. And the steam going to each turbine allows us to turn – and altering the blade angles, controls lift.
And we generate 25 k~W of power to power our computers to control the craft. Really too much power.
We can fly the personal helicopter – using 1cc of regular water every year. No roads, no speed cameras. No Fossil Fuels burn.
IC engines are just no powerful enough for this task. We can Ti plate the inside of the engine, and super charge the engine, and get 40 kW – enough power burn it will use loads of fuel.
The water system is far more energetic, and uses no Fossil Fuels burn.
So of course I am working on this idea. Well no. I am writing books, poems and songs. And this summer organising a medieval festival, included music and drama! Watch this space, or the web site for Ordsall Hall.
This is why the wholesale oil price is now at $30, and Saudi Arabia loses money below $60. They have spent all their foreign reserves in only 2 years.
