We use a steam plasma tube linked to an automotive thermoelectric generator. A steam plasma at 4 atmospheres will release a constant 2.4 MW of heat, from a 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres.
We step down to a lower pressure when not running the car – or hook up to the national grid to SELL the power. Carbon 0 – with no solid, hyper toxic radioactive waste.
1 H2O+PL->E3+L+X-ray E3=2.4 MW
So we turn the DC, into speed linked AC. No battery charging – such a quaint 18thC idea. A helicopter takes 45kW, and we get 144kW: so fly between cities.
No petrol or diesel burn. No hyper toxic uranium fission. A clean, safe plasma burn. As done by all steam venting from the deep – which releases light and X-rays, as it produces helium and free radical oxygen.
So we are talking about 2x10-18cc of regular water, for high mileage. No need ever to fill up. No petrol or diesel use. No CO2.
