    Dear Andrea,

    Does the QuarkX require significantly more power at startup than during normal operation?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If I try to understand technical features that you previously explained, the QuarkX exploits the physical process that the first E-Cats became fatal, but regenerates or reorganizes itself after each flame of the new fire. Is this about what happens?

    It would be nice if we could replace the spark plug of a gasoline engine by a QuarkX, and just continue driving without gasoline. The costs for some adapter pieces and a NOx regenerator can then be financed with the fuel saving. (LOL)

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    Dear Andrea,
    Using oil for extracting the energy of the QuarkX seems to limit the potential for high temperature applications and efficient energy conversion into electricity.
    You replied positively on different suggestions of using super critical CO2 in turbines.
    Is the existing QuarkX design already suitable for CO2 gas cooling or does that require more design?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards and good health, Gerard

    The possibility to use either batteries or the grid just amplifies the possibilities of application, depending on the situation. There is not a preferential way in absolute, the choice depends on the frame of reference .

    Dear Andrea
    Given that the performance you achieve from ac and dc input is comparable, is it more cost effective to focus on the dc version of the control system only and provide an ac/dc transformer to plug in to the wall?

    Colors can express moods, feelings, messages. White is associated with purity; the Red to force but can also express nuances close to violence or eros. Not to mention how different cultures interpret the colors: in our civilization Green is associated with the nature to serenity for others it is the color of martyrdom. That being said I think the color or the combination of colors that you pick will become a symbol because you will paint the most amazing invention after the discovery of fire, as said Prof Sergio Focardi. The E-CAt devote from years and years resources and health … something must be sure … beautiful.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Which is the voltage you need from the batteries to use them as a power source?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Oil, to avoid the change of phase.

    Lars Lindberg:
    Thank you for your kind message.
    The electricity can be made anytime with the Carnot cycle. About the direct production, times are still undefined.
    The start will be in the USA and in Sweden for sure.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    do you think the QuarkX will produce electricity in the future, is it a chance it will be possible after a lot of development?
    When do you think the mainstream world will be aware of your product, allready this year?
    Very welcome to Sweden. We are proud to work with you :)

  • Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    You said that for safety reasons, an external source of energy must be present.
    As far as I can understand, an isolated battery can be seen as an external source by QuarkX.

    Consider this scheme, then:
    n batteries. n-1 batteries in charge by the current output of the QuarkX (by direct conversion or Carnot cycle does not matter) and the n-th that is isolated from the others and the output and drive the quarkx(s). When the n-th battery is low in charge, one of the n-1 in charge is disconnected from the output and switched with the discharged one. And so on, cycling evenly all the batteries. If a faulty one is detected, it’s taken out of the cycle and disabled. The microcontroller is simple enough to be implemented also in a prototype. Also the isolation switches are trivial to implement and can be mechanical (relais) if one does not trust transistors. With one operation every few hours even a relais should last years and probabily more that the batteries themselves…

    All feedback concern that can arose for safety when using its own energy are not valid because in each instant the quarkx will be using energy stored in an isolated battery. Isolated from the quarkx output and the rest of the circuit by the relais or other means (sezionatori in italiano, in uso nei grandi trasformatori ad esempio).

    What do you think?
    Best regards,
    Marco.

  • Joseph Fine

    Andrea Rossi,

    A few years ago, you succeeded in developing a system that operated at ~600 C. But 2700 C is a very high Primary temp.

    I think gas turbines operate at about ~1000 deg C. You could use Super-critical CO2 in a turbogenerator instead of steam.

    Have you built prototype equipment that could power a turbogenerator at lower temperatures? (500-800 C). Once you have the

    heat, the rest is “Just an Engineering problem”.

    Continuing regards,

    Joseph Fine

    We have a temperature in the primary about 2700 C, so we can convert to any P and T of steam we want.
    Any fluid can be used, also for example oil .
    COP: enough.

    Dear Andrea,

    Would a normal 12v automotive battery (2 batteries) be able to power a 1MW plant do you think? (Y/N)
    (This question is serious, the link below is frivolous.)

    Thank you for your replies, they are always appreciated very much.

    I find it interesting the Boeing is using an electric drive for maneuvering in space with the X-37B. Perhaps they will need something to make electricity for this vehicle.

  • Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea:
    Your decision to only produce heat from the QuarkX is for the time being the best.
    The heat may be used to room heating, product heating, producing electricity and heat or electricity alone.
    There are lots of manufacturers in the world that are specialists on machinery to convert heat into electricity.
    The vehicle-industry may regard the QuarkX as the “new petrol” and will easily find the necessary solutions to exploit this possibility. Since all vehicles today are dependent on a working battery to assist the motors functions, without any practical problems, the QuarkX may also function as well.
    The heat produced by the QuarkX must be delivered in the most practical ways. I reckon there will be at least two options: hot water or steam. The heat exchangers form and sizes will vary from each option.
    If steam is a choice, for witch temperature and pressure are you planning here?
    Are other gases, in a closed loop, then water-steam actual?
    What are the calorimetry results of the COP you obtained at May 8?
    Warm Regards, S.H.

  • Andrea Rossi

    John C. Evans:
    An external source of energy is necessary also for safety reasons, besides the fact that we still are in a preliminar stage for what concerns the direct production of electricity. We still produce heat, to turn it into electricity we need the well known conversion systems.

    A.R.

  • John C Evans

    Dear Andrea:

    I understand your vision to integrate all forms of energy production on the grid thus providing a cheap and reliable supply of electricity to the world. So in a world where domestic quarkx reactors are plentiful I see the benefit in maintaining a grid connection for both making the greatest use of excess quarkx production and having more reliable power in instances of quarkx shortfall in production vs demand, malfunction and maintenance. But am I safe to assume that this grid connection is not a necessity? If battery power is used for control and operation of the quarkx unit does your design automatically invert the required amount of AC output to maintain a full charge on the DC operational systems and batteries? Wouldn’t this allow for true standalone self-sustained operation and unimpeachable test results? It would also demonstrate an ability to deliver cheap power to anyone anywhere.

    Good luck and thank you.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    IH is making a fuss about the fact that you were the one that directed JM, but they knew it from the beginning! In your deposition in court has been produced from their attorney (from their attorney !!!) an email dated June 14 2014 (june 14 2014!!!) from you to Tom Darden in which you inform them that you were the director of the plant of JM. So they knew from the beginning this fact and never complained of it, until the end of the test, when the time to pay you came. And paid 100 000 $ for the invoices they received from the ERV, Ing. Penon, invoices specifically issued for his work as the ERV of the guarantee performance test along the agreement between IH and Leonardo! They paid without any complaint during the test, and did not pay only the last installment after the end of the test!
    The more I read the documents of the discovery, the more we can discover that they wanted to make a fraud to you from the beginning.
    Very interesting the comment of Hugh H Maguire of yesterday: there is evidence of the real nature of Cherokee, IH and their management. Now we discover that also their “charity” organization are covers, not gracious and evangelic actions.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In regards to the use of battery power for the eCat when used in an electric power generation configuration.

    I agree that when used with a reliable electrical grid, the use of batteries may only add cost and inconvenience. The issue, I believe, is the relative cost of the generated electricity.

    One way of supplying the needed input electrical power is from a portion of the output of the eCat-based electrical power generation unit. An alternative configuration might be a combination of solar cells and batteries that collect and store the sunlight-provided energy and use it to power and control the eCat-based system. Here, I suggest, the argument comes down to the value of the eCat-produced electrical power compared to the total additional cost of the solar cells and batteries (initial cost plus life-cycle costs). A suggestion for you to consider.

    Dear Andrea,

    The results you are getting with simple calorimetry, is this with the battery input?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    Also today we worked very well and I am very enthusiast of the fact that the results we are obtaining with simple calorimetry give the same results we got with the Wien and Boltzmann equations after the spectrometry. This is an important conciliation.

    A.R.
