Interview with Ken Rauen about his Superclassical Heat Engine

Ken Rauen's Superclassical heat engine concept is designed to be able to tap the heat of the environment as its heat source. It is based upon the experimental evidence of the Proell effect, a macroscopic Maxwell’s Demon.

CALIFORNIA, USA -- On Saturday, Sept. 23, 2006, from 3:00 to 3:55 pm, Pacific time, Sterling Allan of PESN will be doing a live interview with guest, Ken Rauen, regarding his patented technology whereby ambient heat can be tapped for usable energy.

Rauen recently presented a proof of concept demonstration of a key element of his design at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in the "Symposium on the Second Law" at the University of San Diego. (Ref., p. 6)  It was well received by the university professors in attendance.

In that demonstration, he showed that there is a net collection of ambient heat, contrary to the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

Rauen says that the Second Law of Thermodynamics has never been proven to be universal -- that heat transformations must always go "downhill" or create entropy. The presumed universality of the Second Law is based upon a statistical truth, a description of particle collisions based upon the kinetic theory of heat.

Not all particle collisions need be random. When a series of particle collisions has a net motion in any direction, it is called work, such as when a gas moves a piston. Piston motion need not be present for work to occur.

Heat is transferred from a low temperature via particle collisions to a higher temperature without energy input, relying just upon elastic collisions according to the kinetic theory of heat, with work as the transfer medium, when a gas is displaced through a regenerator under constant volume conditions.  This is the Proell effect.

Rauen's patented engine cycles apply this phenomenon. In constant volume displacement cooling, part of the engine is refrigerated without work input, and this internal heat sink is used to advantage. The waste heat flows of the engine fall into this sink and are recycled to the high temperature of the engine in the next cycle. Depending on how the displacement and regeneration are done, either partial or complete recycling is accomplished.

Carnot's Theorem, the mathematical equation of theoretical maximum engine efficiency determined by a ratio of the highest and lowest absolute temperatures of an engine, and based upon the statistical mechanics of the second law of thermodynamics, is sidestepped, allowing higher engine efficiencies, and even the use of ambient heat as the heat input.

Rauen's patent shows practical application in definitive cycles with some mechanical embodiment, and the mathematical proofs show the full thermodynamic analysis with state variables, enough to satisfy the most rigorous academic scrutiny.

All that is holding this development back is the lack of adequate funding to finance the necessary prototyping.

Kenneth M. Rauen has served as PES Network Inc.'s Science Advisor since its founding in 2003, and more recently stepped into the role of Director of Research and Development.  He is also a founding member of the New Energy Congress, in which he is one of the most active participants.  He has hands-on experience with cold fusion, aether energy, and advanced thermodynamics, the latter being his primary area of investigation.  Ken worked closely with the late Gene Mallove in Mallove's laboratory, and has written several articles for Infinite Energy.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
