The International Open Source Hydrogen On Demand Builders Network.
HODINFO is a collaborative think tank. We are an International group comprised of inventors, scientist, mechanics, tinkerers, fabricators, and out of the box thinkers. Our mission is to find innovative solutions to the problems that primarily limit the production and delivery of H2. As the world wakes up to the idea of using hydrogen it also becomes clear that immense infrastructure initiatives will be required to make it happen. If adequate solutions can be found to support HOD systems then the world can remove great and costly limitations on future applications. It is important to realize that the future is not just Hydrogen, it's Hydrogen-on-Demand.
Here is a paper by a Swiss researcher named Slobodan Stankovic. …Continue
More work on indicator diagrams:
The first plot below is called an indicator diagram, a plot of pressure vs. volume in the cylinder of a small, 4-stroke gas engine. It's not much different from an earlier one except that the plot covers about 2 and 1/2 cycles so the intake / exhaust stroke is visible as well as the compression / power stroke. There is some noise on the pressure signal so it as been oversampled - 9 samples for every data point. Note that the maximum volume…Continue
I feel that electronics will be important to future development of HHO technology. Here are some photos showing what its like to work with one very small aspect of electronic systems, surface mount capacitors.
In order to build prototypes of electronic systems, the capacity to use surface mount…
Photos of the latest work on our engine test bed. They are:
Upper left hand.
The test bed will have a software-based controller so we are presently writing the code. The components of a bench top test are labeled.
A. Controller. It is a 44-pin demo board with a Microchip PIC18F45K20. It is…
After some tinkering around to get things working right... we have a preliminary indicator diagram. Various assumptions were made that might have to be refined. The exact point on the trigger disk that corresponds to top dead center has to be determined. A mark made with a Sharpie marker on the engine block where the shaft key lines up was made when the cylinder head was removed, but that is not quite good enough. Will have to use one of those TDC indicators screwed into the…Continue
