Last year’s presentation demonstrated a 3 inch diameter Tesla Turbine operating in the cryophorus mode whereby a hot and cold take under vacuum with a turbine in the middle can create a high speed rotation, which can produce electricity. This year, you will witness a production ready prototype of a 6″ diameter Tesla Turbine operating in the same mode, which has already been tested without an electrical load at over 42,000 RPM, which equates to a peripheral speed, which is faster than Mach 1. The goal is to develop this into a viable powerplant.
After the conference, at 260F, the turbine produced 1300 watts. Part of that test is in the preview video but is not included in the conference presentation.
