    Hi Andrea,
    now you got a patent, and are testing a single or a pair of plants, why do not use a philosopy like go, go, go! and sell many plants? the warranty in case of critical advanced plants can be reduced or nullified, and I am sure that many customers would be ready to accept this risk, think a little what a great impulse the test would get with dozens of plants operating.
    The time to the market would be reduced dramatically.

    Gian:
    Go,go,go !!!

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Revised 1MW Effective COP Calculation

    Known Facts (as revealed by Andrea Rossi on JONP)
    a. SSM mode – consumes 10kW to 13kW while producing 1,000kW of thermal power
    b. Non-SSM mode consumes a maximum of 250kW while producing 1,000kW of thermal power
    c. SSM modes are longer than non-SSM modes

    Example Calculation #1:
    3 hour run with 2 hours of SSM and 1 hour of non-SSM
    Total thermal energy produced = 3,000 kWhr
    Total energy input = 2 hours of 10kW to 13kW = 20kWhr to 26kWhr + 1 hour of 250kW = 250kWhr;
    Total energy input = 270kWhr to 276kWh
    Effective COP = 10.9 to 11.1

    Example Calculation #2 (violates known fact # c)
    2 hour run with 1 hour of SSM and 1 hour of non-SSM
    Total thermal energy produced = 2,000 kWhr
    Total energy input = 1 hour of 10kW to 13kW = 10kWhr to 13kWhr + 1 hour of 250kW = 250kWhr;
    Total energy input = 260kWhr to 263kWh
    Effective COP = 7.6 to 7.7

    Example Calculation #3
    4 hour run with 3 hours of SSM and 1 hour of non-SSM
    Total thermal energy produced = 4,000 kWhr
    Total energy input = 3 hours of 10kW to 13kW = 30kWhr to 39kWhr + 1 hour of 250kW = 250kWhr;
    Total energy input = 280kWhr to 289kWh
    Effective COP = 13.8 to 14.3

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Any news about the E-Cat X?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Oeystein Lande:
    Yes, in SSM the 1 MW E-Cat consumes 10 to 13 kWh/h. When it is in SSM it produces 1,000 kWh/h and consumes 13 kWh/h. That is our definition of SSM, related to the 1 MW E-Cat. If you ask me what the 10-13 kWh/h are for, I cannot answer. Please accept the definition for what it is.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Øystein Lande

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    Can you please provide your definition of SSM mode? I am a litle confused that a Self Sustained Mode still consumes some 10 to 13 KW of electrical power when in SSM mode….

    Regards
    Lande

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    a- It will be necessary an agreement between the parties on this issue
    b- same as in point a
    c- yes, provided the tests will give positive results
    d- not necessarily
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    In response to some comments on E-Cat World, may I ask for the purposes of clarification:

    a) Will a report be published by some party involved in the testing of the 1 year testing period for the E-Cat plant, whether the results be positive or negative?

    b) Will this report be available to the general public, as has been the test with previous reports?

    c) In addition to selling heat from your own plants, will you also be selling E-Cat plants to customers?

    d) If c) is yes, will selling heat as a service come before you sell plants to customers?

    Many thanks!

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Rick:
    Thank you, same answer I gave to Waday Yean.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Keed:
    Of course: we have a climatizer, you set a temperature and it maintains it. But I must add that heating inside our area is not a problem… we need air conditioning aklso in the coldest days.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Izi:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Giannino Ferro Casagrande:
    The E-Cats must always be connected to an energy source, for safety and operational reasons, also when they work in SSM. For example, when the 1 MW E-Cat is in SSM it consumes between 10 and 13 kWh/h.
    P.S.
    Grazie per l’invito, che terrò ben presente.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Patrick:
    Thank you. Behind this patent there are about 20 years of work on prototypes and 3 years of work with the patent Attorneys. In both cases it has been a Team work.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Rick

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I totally agree with Waday Yean.
    Congratulations.

    Caro Andrea , anch’io vorrei chiederTi qualcosa di tecnico . Rispondimi almeno a grandi linee . Sia la pianta nel container con 100 reattori sia il piccolo E-CAT X sono continuatamente collegati alla griglia e continuatamente serviti dalla rete per una qualche potenza in WATT oppure possono essere staccati ed operare in autosostentamento magari con tempi gestiti da un qualche software che gestisce piu problematiche di innesto e per quale e quanta percentuale di tempo . Grazie infinite per l’attenzione !!! ( F9 )
    N. B. Non dimenticarti il mio nominativo qualora intendessi raccogliere attorno a Te per una qualche festicciola le persone (come me ) che smisuratamente stimano coloro che lavorano piu di 12 ore al giorno . RammentandoTi che Albert Einstein al Sabato ed alla Domenica suonava il Suo violino con un gruppo ( quartetto d’archi ) anch’io modesto insegnante umanista insegno pure violoncello e pianoforte in un piccolo paesino in mezzo al mare del Quarnero . Tu assieme a chi vuoi siete e sarete sempre miei ospiti infinitamente graditi . Giannino di Udin a Cres HR !!!

    ENGLISH IN A NUTSHELL: CAN THE E-CATS WORK TOTALLY DISCONNECTED FROM THE GRID, OR THEY NEED TO BE ALWAYS CONNECTED ALSO WHEN THEY ARE IN SSM?

  • Keed

    Dear Andrea
    In the computers container do you have also the heating system? Now winter is arriving!
    Cheers,
    Keed

  • Izi

    Mr Rossi,
    Are the ssm periods longer in the E-Cat X than the driven ones?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Mary:
    Now inside the plant it is 08.00 p.m. of Sunday October 25.
    E-Cat 1 MW doesn’t give troubles; the E-Cat X still very promising.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Carlo:
    Of course yes. The radiations measurements are made continuously. No ionizing radiations have been detected beyond the background.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Waday Yean:
    Thank you for your encouragement,
    Warm Regards,

    Elvis Pepper:
    We will produce internally the electronics, for 2 reasons:
    1- confidentiality
    2- costs: if we do massively it all it will cost less
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Ixuroh:
    We have already chosen the place, but this information will be given only after the end of the tests on course (F9).
    Warm Regards,

  • Patrick

    Dear Andrea:
    I too, among a crowd of others, have been enchanted by seeing your US patent as published on the JoNP with the seal and the ribbon of the United States Patent Office. Nobody believed before August that you could be able to arrive to this point.
    You have made a masterpiece.
    Cheers,
    Patrick

  • Ixuroh

    Dr Rossi:
    You said that the manufacturing (F9) will be made in the USA and in Europe: where in Europe?
    Thank you

  • Elvis Pepper

    Dear Andrea:
    If everything will go well and the massive production someday will begin, will you produce also the electronics or you will outsource them?
    Cheers,
    Elvis

  • waday yean

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Congratulations for your US Patent. It will make history.
    Yean

  • Carlo

    Gent Andrea Rossi,
    Have you instrumentation to measure the ionizing radiation in the plant? How many hours per day to you monitor the radiations?

  • Mary

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Can we have an update?
    Mary

  • Andrea Rossi

    Luna:
    Obviously, anybody trying to make a product in the field of LENR is a competitor. If anybody will arrive to make a product that will make LENR generated thermal energy ( whatever the eventual use of such thermal energy) his product will compete against ours.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    I would say that it is a curve like a roller coaster and problems not always are the same. Obviously during the first month we had many problems not so much specific for our technology, but related just to the set up of any thermal plant with analogous power, but the troubles derived from specific problems related only to our tech are not “seasonal”: anytime the probability that a trouble pops up are the same, more or less.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    can you tell us something about the curve: time – frequency of the problems through the months? decreasing, raising or constant ?

    Best regards
    Alessandro Coppi

  • Luna

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you consider your competitors the people making R&D using electrolysis to make LENR, or you do not consider them competitors, since you do not use electrolysis?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    Thank you for the interesting link.
    Regarding the considerations related to the commercialization of the E-Cat, I repeat what I answered minutes ago on this very post to Sterling Allen.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sterling Allan:
    Thank you for the link, but attention:
    IT CONTAINS A WRONG INFORMATION, and I invite you to correct it: I never said or wrote that the massive commercialization of the E-Cat will start on March 2016: I said and wrote that if ( and only if) the results of the tests and R&D on course will be positive, we will start in March the preparation of the manufacturing system to produce massively the E-Cats, but I also added that we still do not know if the results will be positive or negative.
    This fact must be very clear, to avoid expectances that potentially could not be fullfilled.
    Thank you for your attention,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Hello Dr . Rossi,
    I send you an interesting presentation on LENR.

    Ultra-dense Hydrogen and Low Energy Nuclear Reactions
    Presenter Sveinn Ólafsson Research professor Science Institute University of Iceland

    6. Summary
    1. Ultra dense hydrogen can be the source of all or part of Cold fusion
    LENR related phenomena.
    2. Laser induced fusion in Ultra dense hydrogen seemingly produces
    mesons, possibly in a proton or neutron meson spallation process.
    (Full 4π calorimetric high energy particle detection exp. needed)
    3. If confirmed, such process releases similar or higher energy than
    fission of Uranium 200MeV.
    4. Rossi Ni-H product commercialized 2016?
    5. Limited energy system disruption starts 2016 and takes 5-20 years?
    6. Funded basic research in cold fusion starting 2016-2017?
    7. Full scale energy system disruption possible 2020-2030?
    8. Theory possible 2017-2019?

    Jim:
    We must put a distintion between alchemy before it evolved into chemistry, during the 17th century, and after.
    Before the 17th century alchemy was a science, whose limits were determined by the cultural limits of the times: the four elementals ( Fire, Water, Air, Earth, along the philosophy of Empedocles- 500 b.C.- eventually re-edited by Aristotheles- 350 b.C.- who integrated them with “Aether”) were what the scientists of the time had at their disposal to understand natural phenomenons. Aristotheles principles resisted for many centuries and whomever considered them wrong was deemed an imbecile and an erethic. Eventually it evolved into a more rigorous science, mainly with the discovery of atoms and molecules ( as a matter of fact, atoms had been already “discovered” by the presocratic phylosopher Democritus -400 b.C.). The last alchemist is supposed to be Henning Brand ( circa 1650), who, by the way, is the discoverer of phosphorus: he found it as a serendipity, while tryng to make gold from his own urine: THAT WAS SOME RECYCLING! Then arrived Galileo Galilei ( 1554- 1642): he put in discussion every “truth” derived from items given for certain without experimental proof, put in discussion every already accepted principle and based the science exclusively upon experimentation: he must be considered the father of the modern science. Around the year 1650 Robert Boyle publishes ” The Sceptical Chemist” and puts an end to the consideration of alchemy as a science or a scientific method. After him alchemy became a methaforic system not fit for scientific uses, but for methaphysic speculations. The famous principle of the “Phylosophical Stone” to convert iron into gold was no more considered a chemical process, but the methaforic representation of the evolution of the human spirit. At this point, alchemy became a sort of phylosophy, no more a scientific issue as it used to be before, when the use of the alambique, the first very important tool for chemical research, had been invented by the alchemists. That was science and technology, at those times.

    Alexvs:
    When I am far from the plant I am not well. During the hernia operation I was sleeping and during the day of the operation I was groggy for the anti-pain pills; the day after I was in the plant. To stay far from the plant is not relaxing, is stressing: anytime the phone rings the level of worry peaks up…
    My Team without me is good; with me is great.
    Thank you for your kind care.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Congratulations for your US Patent. Its value is enormous.
    About the E-Cat X: is the charge done with a wafer like described in the patent?
    Thank you,
    Natalia

  • Alexvs

    Dear Mr. Rossi

    I read that you continue your exhausting work 16/7. Please notice that when you were forced to rest due to the hernia operation you could conceive the E-Cat X. Don´t you think that a weekend pause would be fine for your health and research? Let the repair work to your team, take a pause and do quietly your fundamental research upon E-Cat X. From my own experience I know it is a good practice.

    Greetings

    Alexvs

  • Jim

    Dr Rossi,
    What is your opinion on Alchemy?

    Dear Andrea,

    You said yesterday that the E-Cat X was taken down for modification and would be restarted on Tuesday; now you say it is still working? Did the work go so quickly?

    Kind regards,

  • Øystein Lande

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    Can you reveal what COP your plant have on average so far of the test period?
    A) 3-6
    B) 6-10
    C) 10-20
    D) more than 20

    Now, at 04.20 p.m. of Friday October 23, the 1 MW E-Cat is stable, with all its reactors ok; the E-Cat-X is working still in a very promising way.
    How I will spend the week end? very parsimoniously: 16 hours per day inside the plant.
    Warm Regards,
