I was reading Patent 4,394,230 today and he shows the spike that was in video figure 6A in stage discussion. It occurred when open circuit condition was created by removing water from between plates. In the stages he talks about the conditioning step that Stanley also references.where water conditioning step. Interesting he states there are very little bubbles even though gas is being generated and that process stops (Stanley was interested in the ionized gas!) He also states that increasing power did not cause gas generation to restart. Reversing plate voltage did and also vibration did but that caused voltage spikes. I also wondered if relaxing time (t3) would allow cycle to be restarted? It this works it might explain the 11 cells in the car so always one or more cells are outputting gas while other are recycling. Note: In patent he states not all stages he lists are required.
Nice to see items discussed in patent being recreated
