Phases of Islands of Light and their Infrastructure Development

…More or less, we try to prelude the phases of Islands of Light, at least from our point of view concerning their infrastructure development...

Roughly, consider it so at this time:

1st phase of Island of Light:
> stand alone power systems with distribution in DC, preferable 48V micro-grids,
as the case may be, with some 'attempts' to use the 60V, 128kHz experimental system...

2nd phase of Islands of Light:
>> the same as above, but also with the NASA's 440V 20kHz power system for larger communities...

>> more and more HFAC microgrids, as described in our blog (but that are nowadays not in use, but only proposals of the scientific community)

3rd phase of Islands of Light:
>>> undecided, but most likely full of free energy, and for sure, full of HFAC microgrids...

More details will come later, due to Cobra's Conference reports.

ISLANDS and AREAS of LIGHT – Infrastructure Development

Subject: Electricity – HFAC power distribution

The Areas of Light – a larger Island of Light – from a technical infrastructure point of view...

NASA's power distribution system, of 440V, 20kHz, with a power rating of hundreds of kW,  a neated path for our Areas of Light (larger than Islands of Light) infrastructure development.

Proposed HFAC power distribution for Areas of Light infrastructure

"NASA has focused on power distribution at 440V, 20kHz, for an electrical system with a power rating in the order of hundreds of kW."

ISLANDS and AREAS of LIGHT Infrastructure Development

Electricity – 'HFAC'  Papers

The HFAC network based on a sinusoidal 60V, 128kHz supply, a second better option for our first Islands of Light. 

In fact, the proposal refers to a next and better stage of power distribution, related to the 48V DC proposed as the first nowadays option.

"Claimed benefits include low losses on the distribution path, even heat distribution throughout the cards shelf and good voltage regulation on the load side."

"In the case of HFAC power distribution, by contrast with the DC networks, the entire output portion of the power converter which includes rectifiers, post regulators and filters is distributed to the point of use."

"When a load short-circuit occurs and the primary and secondary windings of the transformer are coupled, the current drawn is low and limited by Ls and the saturation action of the transformer. This is an effective fuseless protection for the circuit."

The Autogenous Pulsed Abnormal Glow Discharge (PAGD)


Excess Energy Conversion System Utilizing Autogenous Pulsed Abnormal Glow Discharge:

Direct current energized pulse generator utilizing autogenous cyclical pulsed abnormal glow discharges:

Pulse generator:
 "Even fluorescent lighting tubes can be operated briefly in the PAGD regime although they are unsuitable for practical use and fail very rapidly since their electrodes cannot withstand the current densities involved."

The Platinum Lamp

Subject: A supposed compact lamp, for esoteric purposes, using the Platinum as a light emitter.

[Images are posted for educational purpose only]

Briefly, there is not easy to find a scientific proof for that of an electric discharge in platinum vapor to occur in convenient ways, like there are for gold and silver, thus in the scientific community there are 'rumors' that for the most of the elements of Mendeleev's table were conducted experiments of electrical discharge...

But luckily, there is however enough proof, coming from Edison's research, that an incandescent lamp using platinum filament is possible to be achieved. And, also luckily, the obstacles which prevented the achievement of an incandescent lamp using platinum filament are rather commercial than technical. So, for the case of interest for only a light coming from platinum, and no commercial or lm/w concerns, it can be brought out for esoteric purposes.

Take also in consideration that there are the single element hollow cathode lamps available, if you want to consider them, too. A list of commercially available lamps of this type might be this one: 

Research needs to be conducted!
