"As an Electrical Engineer with 25 years experience, I unfortunately have to agree with ee-tom's fundamental opinions. But in saying that the testing is difficult he is being overly-magnanimous!
DE, if you are watching this; please…"
"The fact that was ED numbers were calculated has been suggested since the the first Patent Weir published.
No skeptic has ever had a doubt about that. It is about definitive proof of that fact.
I don't recall BigMouth actually suggesting any…"
"Seems that diesel reformer would be 83% efficient, not sure if all auxiliary equipment has been included. Still there is 10% per volume of CO compared to 38.5% H2. Since enthalpy of combustion is the same (per mole), CO represents 20% of the energy…"
"Thanks WoD. Your comments here have always been particularly notable for quiet common sense. I can do that too, but do otherwise when I reckon there are technical matters not understood and become passionate. Passion is always the enemy of clarity…"
"The key issue is not that it was calculated but that it can only have been calculated, because the energy is more accurately 0.5*C*V^2 of the rounded C than the rounding error.
BigMig may have noticed that first - I don't remember.…"
"Nice post tom and very restrained. Well done.
I have a few quibbles which I'll not get into except for the one where you give Po credit for noticing some SEAL data was calculated. I was in chat when Mig pointed this out to you. Dunno if that…"
"I guess there will always be people like Sydd. A lot of people, though, seem to have come around to your point of view today, Tom. Congratulations to you, and Y_Po, nanocarbons and all the other skeptics. Are you going to leave…"
"Really, I would love to say EE-Tom was FOS but the facts speak for themselves, I'm a bit surprised that anyone is still attacking EE-Tom and Po for telling it how they see it. It's not only EE-Tom and Y_Po with these views everyone else…"
"I tend to see both sides (though people here would not think that). It is so easy to be misled by measurements that are crazy. Where I agree is that any decent engineer, given measurements that are crazy, would retest and check rather than make…"
Lupo 3L biodiesel vs Lupo Hydrogen FC
Seems that the particular fuel cell used was operating at 57% efficiency and still only got vehicle to use 13% less fuel energy overall. Not counting how hydrogen is made. And the battery system they…"
"ee-tom. I disagree with your constant use of "science is difficult" thesis.
Not in this case and and it is not even science, it's basic electrical engineering and I had college football players doing that kind of measurements and…"
