Pre-industrial tests of fuel-free generators Neutrino Power Cube start
At the Schneider Congress “Epoch-making Technologies for Energy Transition” on June 17-18, 2023 in Germany, the Neutrino Energy Group company represented by President Holger Thorsten Schubart and the GAIA Society (Austria) reached an agreement to conduct the first joint field test of fuel-free power generators Neutrino Power Cubes in Europe.

In order for the Neutrino Powercube field test results to be representative, it is expected that the number of pre-production cubes provided by Neutrino Energy Group will be from 100 to 200. This so-called field test is conducted in order to demonstrate the practical use of the Neutrino Power Cube net-power generator with a capacity of 5-6 kW in everyday life, especially among direct users. In order to control the stability of the device under constant load, the duration of field tests of Neutrino Power Cubes is planned for a period of 6 to 9 months. There is no charge for the generated energy for the test period.
It is more correct to call the Neutrino Power Cube an energy converter, rather than an electric power generator, because the Neutrino Power Cube converts the energy of the surrounding radiation fields, the kinetic energy of neutral neutrino particles having mass and hitting directly or tangentially the nuclei of graphene atoms, as well as the thermal (Brownian) motion of graphene atoms. Neutrino Power Cube is designed for autonomous operation, not for parallel operation with the network.
Neutrino Power Cubes created on the basis of Neutrinovoltaic technologies have quite compact dimensions. The first production, which will begin licensed industrial production of fuel-free energy converters Neutrino Power Cubes with a net capacity of 5-6 kWh, is located in Switzerland. Neutrino PowerCubes will be mass-produced here in the form of an electrical panel (cabinet), which is conditionally divided into 2 departments: an electric generating compartment, where 6 electric generating modules are located, and a compartment for installing a control system. The generating compartment has a size of 800x400x600 mm and a weight of about 50 kg. Inverters are placed in the control system compartment to convert the generated direct current into alternating current with a voltage of 220 V and 380 V, there is also a DC connector for direct connection of computers and various devices and gadgets.
There are two voltage standards in the world: European — 220-240 V and American 100-127 V. And two AC frequency standards: 50 Hz and 60 Hz. The USA, Japan and most South American countries use a bundle of 100-127 V - 60 Hz. The rest of the world mainly uses European 220-240 V - 50 Hz, so the number of Neutrino Power Cubes generating modules and the number of densely compressed generating plates placed inside the generating modules will depend on the destination country. This is done to reduce losses when converting the generated direct current into alternating current. For example, according to the plan, at the end of 2024, a licensed industrial production of Neutrino Powercube giga-factory in the Republic of Korea should begin, the annual output capacity of which by 2029 should reach 30 GW. Neutrino Power Cubes for the domestic market will be produced with a voltage of 220 V and an alternating current frequency of 60 Hz.
The absence of rotating elements does not create noise and discomfort when operating the Neutrino Power Cube. The net power of the Neutrino Power Cube depends on the power loss when converting DC to AC with a voltage of 220 V and 380 V. So the Neutrino Power Cube with a net capacity of 5-6 kWh has a gross capacity of 7 kWh. The structural features of Neutrino Power Cubes allow increasing the necessary power by connecting additional power generating modules, each of which consists of a set of densely packed metal foil plates with a multilayer nanomaterial applied to one side (Fig.1).
Structurally, the nanomaterial consists of alternating layers of graphene and silicon with layered alloying elements, each layer of graphene is located between 2 layers of silicon (Fig.1). The first layer of graphene is applied to a metal foil, usually aluminum. The number of graphene-silicon layers is from 12 to 20, the optimal number is 12 layers. One plate with a size of 200x300 mm creates a voltage of 1.5 V and a current of 2 A. Applying a multi-layer coating on one side of the foil leads to the appearance of different poles: the coated side has a positive pole, and the uncoated side has a negative pole, which allows them to be placed on top of each other and pressed together to obtain a reliable serial connection of the plates.
Another important feature of the Neutrinovoltaic technology is its versatility, it is adaptable not only for the production of Neutrino Power Cubes, but also for the creation of electric vehicle bodies that act as energy converters. The range of applications of Neutrinovoltaic energy converters is so wide that it allows us to talk about the future global restructuring of the entire power generation system.
Of course, in this case we are dealing with one of the most innovative and progressive technologies of eco-friendly energy generation in the world. The development and implementation of this innovative technology in everyday life will mean the beginning of a new era in the energy sector.
