The main idea
We have learned how to obtain extended thermal energy from minerals in high-temperature plasma. In terms of its indices, the process by its physical parameters is close to burning fuel with a huge calorific value. We are going to start production of the generators based on this principle. The knowledge of how to accomplish this took over 15 years of research and experimentation. This great technology has no emission, produces totally clean energy and heat for consumers, and is ready to be utilized. In January 2019, the provisional application for patent pending was filed with United States Patent and Trademark Office. We are looking for partners and investors to launch this project. The intended market we are heading toward is the production of heat and electricity.
What is μ-PTG?
Micro plasma thermal generator (μ-PTG) is the assembly of thermal elements designed to initiate micro plasma spots on correspondent composite poly-mineral-metallic surfaces. The body of the element is used to distribute and accumulate thermal energy in order to prevent plasma spot overheating and, in conjunction with mineral interlayer, to be a fuel for thermal generation effect. To maintain the stability and performance of the heat spot, our team has developed a special power source.

What do we have at the current stage? The effect is confirmed in hundreds of successful experiments in different laboratories. Today, we need not just a working prototype but a real heater ready to manufacture and use in real devices as we described above. We need about a year of scrupulous laboratory work to find out the best materials, the mode of operation, construction of power supply, etc. Therefore, we have to be ready for manufacturing with the best device possible. Our enthusiasm did let us to finance the first stage from our pockets but now we require additional financing to finish the project. At the end of this step, we are going to develop a production prototype of the electric and heat generator within one year for a single house with the option to connect to the grid to sell excessive electricity to the public.

This system could be combined with a power accumulation system to be ready for peak consumption. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer is 10,766 kilowatt-hours (kWh), an average of 897 kWh per month. Our system can produce up to 4kW electric power non-stop, which is up to 2,880 kWh per month.
Water heating is the second largest energy user in our homes and accounts for about 20% of household energy costs. For families with electric water heaters, the monthly energy consumption is usually between 300 and 500 kWh per month. Our system will generate up to 400 kWh of thermal energy per day. It requires utilizing excessive thermal energy with coolers and additional utilization of the electric energy to the public grid.
The second line of products are power plants with outgoing power counted in megawatts or gigawatts for industrial, scientific, military, or other usage. For such applications, turbines are widely used with various working fluids. We will design a new steam generator based on utilization of the heat produced by multi µ-PTG combined device. Under the current stage of the project, we will design and emulate a high power heater core for the future project with the over-megawatts turbine generator.
After producing the first production prototype, we will have the ability to partially use the same equipment to start producing such power systems after proper registration and certification.

Definition of the effect
Effect: generation and utilization of thermal energy, including generation of the electromagnetic radiation streams in a wide spectrum, taking place in high temperature micro-plasma spots by burning a poly-mineral-metallic substance on the surface of a firm conductive material.
Acknowledgment of the effect consists mainly in comparison of radiating thermal energy proceeding from micro-plasma thermal generator (μ- PTG) of varying length and diameter, which differ from each other in weight, dimensions, radiation area, and electric energy consumed by these assemblages. Experiments to define thermal and electric capacity of different micro plasma thermal generator (μ-PTG) have shown the following:
- Thermal radiation of μ-PTG consisting of thermal elements with diameter of 30 and 40 mm, length of 30 centimeters, makes about 3 kW, thus weight of μ-PTG was nearby 2 kg, the area of radiation – 330 square centimeters. Consumed electric capacity - about 2.1 kW.
- Thermal radiation of μ-PTG consisting of thermal elements with diameter of 40 and 60 mm, length of 100 centimeters, makes about 11.6 kW, thus weight of assemblage was near 12 kg, the area of radiation - 2072 square centimeters. Consumed electric capacity - about 3.5 kW.
- Thermal radiation of μ-PTG consisting of thermal elements with diameter of 75 mm, length of 100 centimeters, makes about 18 kW, thus the weight of μ-PTG makes nearby 35 kg, the radiation area - 2355 square centimeters. Because of μ-PTG weight increasing, consumed electric capacity has made 3.7 kW.
- Using of μ-PTG made of thermal elements with diameter of 90 mm, length of 100 centimeters, thermal radiation were made by 23 kW, thus the weight of assemblage has made 56 kg, the area of radiation - 2826 square centimeters. So considerable weight of μ-PTG, owing to its big thermal inertance, allows to work at consumption of electric capacity about 4.2 kW.
- Experiment took place June 2017. Using of µ-PTG 60x60 mm thermal elements, length 100 cm placed inside copper tube evaporator and thermally isolated. With power consumption of 3.5 KW, 22 liters of water at 20oC evaporated within an hour. The evaporation of 1 liter of water required 2450 kJ/h or 0.68 kW/h. To evaporate 22 liters of water, 15 kWh thermal energy generated.
Active power consumption of all kinds of μ-PTG measured by variety measuring devices, which showed identical results in each case. This makes the equal range of measurement errors of the active power generation. The increase in mass size of μ-PTG, which simultaneously increases the radiation area, leads to escalation of their heat-radiating abilities. At the same time, a thermal inertance of these assemblages is increasing, what allows experimentation with power supplies on different frequency and porosity to stabilize a power consumption of assemblages at 4 – 5 kW. This effect can be reached due to the internal energy of condenser films of the evaporated mineral substance, in which electrostatic energy film condensers discharge in plasma zones and give proper additional thermal radiation. Coefficient of efficiency of μ-PTG with the diameter of 90 mm makes nearly 5.9. The given coefficient will increase in the process of mass and dimension enlargement of μ-PTG itself.
Concept design of standalone electric generator based on μ-PTG and Stirling engine
For small and medium applications (5 KW – 500 KW) the Stirling engine is one of the best solutions as of today. The modern Stirling engines have efficiency between 30% and 40%, no or low maintenance, are very silent, have a very long life cycle, and emit no pollution. In combination with μ-PTG, we can build the ultimate electric power and heat system with very low maintenance cost and very low total cost of ownership. The cost of the energy produced is just a fraction compared to traditional power sources.
Schematic of power plant based on μ-PTG and supercritical fluid
For large applications (Megawatts and up), steam turbines are commonly used all over the world to produce electricity. The newest technology of supercritical fluid used to increase efficiency of the power plant. Such plants can produce electric power along with consumable heat for community utilization. Such design is very close to modern nuclear power plants but without the hard radiation and nuclear fuel. The μ-PTG will require planned replacement but it is much cheaper than nuclear fuel and does not require exotic materials. The volume of materials used to produce μ-PTG are almost unlimited. According to our preliminary calculations, the final cost of electricity can be around $0.015 per kilowatt at power plants with the generated power up to 100 Megawatts or more.
Example of niche use
Our method is four times more effective at heating an area than all existing analogues. For a more detailed analysis of the potential application of the method, additional research is needed in the field of climate control and heat transfer systems.
The total area of greenhouses in 2017 exceeds the total land size of Germany and Austria (500,000 km2) and annually increases by 11%. The market needs new alternatives to the current source of heat and electricity. Greenhouses will require new technical solutions, 1/3 of which are located in Western Europe. It is an opportunity to sell 30-40,000 Atakam generators annually and to provide return on investments.
