The purpose of this
test is to use a different method for measuring the electrical
power input of the *Cold Fusion* *Reactor ***( CFR )**. In this test, I have used a Power-Meter
EKM 265 ( An Energy-Cost-Checker ) directly connected on the grid
line and in serie with the input of a 220V/110V - 600 VA
transformer. This power measured with this Power-Meter is
compared to the datas recorded with the Digital Scope Fluke 123
and the Current Clamp CA-60A. So, it is interesting to check the
difference between the values measured in real-time with the
Power-Meter and the recorded data computed...

The CFR unit tested is
the *Tiny-CFR* (click here to see all the details about this
*Tiny-Cold Fusion Reactor* ).

**1 - **__Experimental
test setup__** : **

The Tiny Cold Fusion
Reactor is filled with a 150 mL solution of Sodium
Hydrogenocarbonate ( NaHCO_{3} ) 0.5
molar ( 0.5 M ). The Cathode used is a pure tungsten rod ( W ) 2 mm diameter and 25 mm
length from tungsten welding
rods. The Anode used is composed of stainless steel mesh
maintained with a stainless steel shaft.

The *Tiny-CFR *is
powered with a DC voltage through a bridge rectifier connected to
a 220V to 110V - 600 VA transformer. The CFR voltage input has
also been measured with a digital oscilloscope Fluke 123 with a Shielded Test Lead STL 120 ( 1:1, 1 Mohms/225 pF ). The CFR
current input has also been measured with a current clamp CIE
Model CA-60A ( Accuracy DC Amps ±1.5%, AC
Amps±2% (40Hz-2kHz), AC Amps±4%(2kHz-10kHz), AC
Amps±6%(10kHz-20kHz) ). The temperature has been measured with a
type "K" temp probe ( NiCrNi ) connected on a VC506
digital multimeter ( -20°C to +1200 °C with an accuracy of +/-
3% ). ( see the photo above ).

The electrical power input is measured
with the Power-Meter EKM 265 directly connected on the grid line

and in serie with the input of a 220V/110V - 600 VA transformer

**2
- **__TESTS RESULTS__** :**

When the 220V/110V -
600 VA transformer is connected to the power grid and the *Tiny-CFR*
is off line, the power input measured by the Power-Meter is 10.8
Watts. When the *Tiny-CFR *is in stable running condition
( after about 60 sec of running ), the power measured at about
139 Watts drops progressively down to 110 Watts at the end of the
test run. ( see below ).

Now, we can compare the power input measured and computed by the Fluke 123 digital oscilloscope and the current clamp CA-60A

__POWER
INPUT/OUPUT - With the computed recorded datas from the Digital
Scope Fluke 123__** : **

The Voltage/Current datas logged give an
average electrical power input of **122.8 Watts**
during 162.4 seconds, so this gives :

**ELECTRICAL ENERGY INPUT = 19949
Joules**

The evaporated water in the CFR during the full boiling was 6 mL. We know that we need 2260 J/g to vaporize water. The temperature rise of the 150 mL was 16°C. So, this gives :

**ENERGY OUTPUT = ( 6 x 2260 ) + ( 150
x 16 x 4.18 ) = 23592 Joules**

**Power OUTPUT = 145.3 Watts, Power
Gain = 22.5 Watts**

Energy
OUTPUT/INPUT = 23592 / 19949 = 1.18 (
with the Fluke 123 ) |

__POWER
INPUT/OUTPUT - With the POWER-METER EKM 265__**
: **

The Voltage/Current datas logged give an
average electrical power input of **108.97 Watts**
during 162.4 seconds, so this gives :

**ELECTRICAL ENERGY INPUT = 17697
Joules**

**Power OUTPUT = 145.3 Watts, Power
Gain = 36.33 Watts**

Energy
OUTPUT/INPUT = 23592 / 17697 = 1.33 (
with EKM 265 ) |

* Notes from JL Naudin* : This
test with the Power-Meter EKM 265 confirms that the electrical
power input measured in real time is fully in the range of the
power measured with the datas recorded and computed with the
Digital Oscilloscope Fluke 123. The Efficiency is more
"optimistic" with the Power-Meter because only 3 values
has been taken into account but they are fully in line with the
data recorded. The recorded datas with the Digital Oscilloscope
Fluke 123 are more accurate and more closer to the reality than
with the EKM 265. In all the cases, these results are very
encouraging and encourage me to continue my investigations in
this field of research...
