Notes on operational mode
It is likely that it should be somewhere between corona and anomalous glow (AG) regime rather than spark. King states it should be AG and is probably right.
Corona discharge is what Lord Raleigh used in the 1930s and the Correa team also, to see excess. Same with Claytor (proved production of Tritium) and Papp (to build Charge Clusters) and Savvatimovva (most recently presented at ICCF-23) and the ECCO generator of Suhas Ralkar.
In fact, Suhas said that if he goes from corona to spark - his fuel containing tubes blew up and the reactor was broken. This is akin to the deliberate blowing up of charge clusters in Papp. Likewise Hutchison needed to have neutral self-similar EVO fragments leaving his discharges in order to interact with metals some distance from his discharges, so violent destruction was appropriate.
That Raleigh, Correa, Ralkar, were claiming excess heat and Claytor and Savvatimovva were observing transmutation - both imply EVO driven processes however at a much more subtle level.
I believe in these systems, this is the mode we should work in, very small clusters are produced and these 'cool' radiating a portion of the mass of their electrons as UV / soft X-Rays and drift to the anode, cooling that there. The ionisation permits extra electrons to form. Some transmutation as observed in gas (Claytor) and on electrodes (Savvatimovva) will provide extra thermal energy to the overal process producing electrons. Additionally if beta decay of the heavy isotope of Xe is achieved or any other beta process - this will increase output also.
The AG operational range in the Moray B. King April 1996 paper is what we want to go for here, we are not trying to do Papp or VEGA EVO Blaster level events. We want to make ‘teeny tiny ones’ and let them ‘fade away’ to some degree on their way to gently touching the anode.
Perhaps we must first have the disruptive discharge and then immediately follow with an AG regime, not too dissimilar to what happens when a HID is first ignited and then driven.
Ken Shoulders said he would first make an EVO with a sharp pulse, and then he would feed it electrons. If he fed it electrons it would stay in white mode. If he didn't, then it would fade away, presumably from loss of mass of the electrons via photon emissions.
So it may actually be that we need to do just that - which is not that far removed from how a normal HID is driven.
2 different bulbs tried on HV straight out of microwave oven transformer being driven by a 12volt 555 timer circuit designed for running car ignition coils.
The small car headlamp HID bulb seemed to warm up and then run at lower amps with flashes. It cooled down and stopped. Don't know if this is the cooling we are looking for or just a function of less power allowing it to cool off.
It was awesome to J.R.Roth mentioned finally. He was cool like Peter Hagelstein and would reply to emails; before that unfortunate incident where he couldn't find US grad students, and got in trouble with the military. Thanks Bob, keep doing what you are doing.
