Comparing the efficiency of the larger 5 liter cell to the 2.4 Liter cell demonstrates a significant 150% increase in efficiency. The size scale increase is achieved by increasing the internal galvanic energy mass area. Refer to the previous reports performed on the smaller 2.4 Liter cell.
Examples of Efficiency Scale:
Based on a conservative efficiency increase of 100% (rather than the proven 150%) per x2 scale, a 1 cubic meter cell (78 x larger than 5Ltr cell) would have an (input v.s. output power) efficiency of 8,300% requiring only 1,254 Watts of input energy for 39,000 Watts of output energy. (factored in the 10W input energy per x2 scale)
Based on a conservative efficiency increase of 100% (rather than the proven 150%) per x2 scale, a 24 cubic meter cell (1872 x larger than 5Ltr cell) would have an (input v.s. output power) efficiency of 187,200% requiring only 19,220 Watts of input energy for 944,000 Watts of output energy. (factored in the 10W input energy per x2 scale)
This proves a factor of that less input energy required as the physical cell increases in size.
Larger the scale, greater the performance and with NO LIMITS!

Comparing the output power (in hydrogen energy content) of the larger 5 liter cell to the 2.4 Liter cell demonstrates a 2.9x increase in power. The size scale increase is achieved by increasing the internal galvanic energy mass area. Refer to the previous reports performed on the smaller 2.4 Liter cell.
At time location 10609 (2416 on zoomed in chart) the input power was reduced giving a rapid drop in output generation.
At time location 11633 (3600 on zoomed in chart) the input power was suddenly increased giving a rapid and significantly greater increase in output generation.
Q: Why was it not sustained?
A: These desktop verification report demo units are lacking the electrolyte circulation system and retention equipment. With greater gas production under pressure the electrolyte is pushed out the gas port, fowls the bubbler and threatens the fuel cell equipment. For this larger cell we incorporated a larger output port cooling system. This also separates most of the electrolyte which is manually transferred to a container when the level sensor gives indication. At the time the technician boosted the power the cell had already lost 1 liter (1/5 of it's electrolyte) which would have affected performance. Then with the rapid increase the electrolyte loss was too great to sustain as it poured into the bubbler. Refer to the CCTV footage below.
Examples of Power Scale:
The 2.4 Liter cell generated a maximum of 120 watts of power while this 5 liter cell generated a max 350 watts and could have increased if we were able to hold at this level (see note above).
This equates to a power generation (power in watts content of the hydrogen gas generated) increase of 2.9x with a cell size increase of 2.2x. This delivered an increase of 230 watts.
A one cubic meter cell would have a power capacity of 39 kWh based on the scale equation: 1 cubic meter is 171x larger than the small 2.4 Ltr cell. 171 x 230 watts = 39,330 Watts of output energy or 1Kg of hydrogen gas per hour. (1 kg of hydrogen delivers 33,300 watts of energy).
A 24 cubic meter cell would have a power generation capacity of 944 kWh based on the scale equation: 24 cubic meter is 4104x larger than the small 2.4 Ltr cell. 4104 x 230 watts = 943,920 Watts of output energy. (Almost 1 megawatt for an area the size of 3x4x2 meters cube).
Larger the scale, greater the power generation capability with NO LIMITS!
Video snippets of CCTV Footage: Performance Test December 17, 2019
Camera 8 is focused on the bubbler and gas pressure gauge. For accurate input v.s. output comparison the pressure gauge must remain constant. The Horizon fuel cell bleeds hydrogen gas at intervals to remove water. It also has a short circuit system (SCU) which consumes gas in 100ms bursts. These inherent factors consume extra hydrogen in addition to the 40% efficiency. We run with the SCU switched off to reduce waste hydrogen and support a stable efficiency test. According to the manufacturers operation manual, see Test Setup page, the efficiency will reduce as much as 20% extra with the SCU off, however we base all calculation on the best case (40%).
Camera 8 also focuses on a 0 to 1000mL/Min Air flow gauge. If Oxygen was present in the output gas then the flow meter would show bursts well in excess of 600mL/Min according to the hydrogen production of 0.6 to 2.0 L/Min.
We manually adjust the output load to conform with the hydrogen production flow. Each test report will demonstrate differing power levels demonstrating the increase in performance as the power is decreased. This demonstrates the science behind the technology where the main energy is drawn from galvanic energy rather than the input power, which is the catalyst stimulating the electrochemical process.
At points through the shortened video, camera 8 will scan around the equipment. We strongly suggest you pause at intervals and study it closely to assure electrical and gas connections are as stated. Statements from independent qualified electricians contracted to inspect and verify the connections will be published in the report.
The Horizon fuel cell we use to perform the test is 40% efficient therefore to realize the performance of the Galvanic Enhanced Electrolyser a calculation of (fuel cell output divided by 0.4) is required. The fuel cell output is displayed on the electronic loader (green display). Commercial PEM fuel cell efficiency ranges from 30% to 60% efficiency and no fuel cell can come close to 100%.
Note to the general viewer: This report is for scientific verification purposes and not part of an investment program or money laundering exercise. H2IL is not taking shares in this venture but is focused on assigning the patents and additional IP to a corporation large enough to integrate the technology on a large scale. These corporations will require personal demonstrations and validation in addition to these reports.
