    Let’s take the numbers obtained during the Stockolm test.
    To produce 20 Wh/h the E-Cat QX consumed 0.16 x 3/7 = 0.07 Wh/h, operating at about the 30% of its continuous operation rating. This is the amount of energy that the control board supplied to the E-Cat QX. Actually, considering the integrals of the waves, the consumption is considerably less, but this makes things complicated, so just forget the integrals.
    The control box produces also heat, the amount of which varies depending on many factors and this heat can be fully recovered for other uses, with a COP close to 1 ( it will be 1 minus the energy consumed by the E-Cat, circa). The by product obtained will be heated fluid, for example air or water, that can be used for other purposes not necessarily connected to the E-Cat. For example ( just one example among an endless series) : the E-Cat, with its COP, supplies energy to make electricity or steam, while the control box supplies heat to help a heating system or an air conditioned circuit.
    The energy by-produced by means of the control box, anyway, is destined to fade in time, because the engineering we are developing for the industrialization will reduce dramatically the heat dissipation of the components.

    How much is the energy consumed by the E-Cat QX and for what is used the energy consumed by the control system that is not consumed by the E-Cat QX itself?

    Eric Ashworth:
    Good question.
    Please go to the lecture of Carl-Oscar Gullstrom ( video available also on http://www.ecat.com and paper published on the Journal of Nuclear Physics) and there is a crucial point of our theoretical work, where we write that when the temperature in a field raises the mass of a particle, waves are formed that correspond to virtual particles with the mass corresponding to that temperature. Such waves, at our temperatures, can have a mass of 1-2 eV and must be waves and antiwaves. When I suggested to Carl-Oscar this model, we decided to put it under the proof of mathematical calculations in the context of the mechanism of the spin polarizability; it could result to be wrong: it is borderline, but still inside the Standard Model if we consider that we are talking of virtual particles, that are not actual elementary particles, but resonances of waves with a lifespan in the order of 10^-18 to 10^-23 s. Their low mass could justify the absence of strong radiations, while the waves-antiwaves annihilation could explain the effect. It will be very difficult to proof, but we are studying on this. It is something that could reconcile the behavior of the E-Cat QX and I believe I am right, but I know that probably I am wrong. We’ll see.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea, With regards the mechanisms that activate the LENR process, do you believe that it can eventually be fully explained by the current understanding of atomic physics or will a better understanding be a necessary requirement. That is to say an aspect not yet recognized by mainstream academia. I believe that you know more than you are giving away, just curious.

    Best Regards, Eric Ashworth

  • Enzo

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi’
    Very important the heat recovery of the thermal energy generated by the control box with COP 1: this makes the power source energy cost nothing, while the COP of the Ecat QX is a stunning 500.
    Godspeed

    Carissimo Andrea,
    about customer service can you say something? I imagine that the device can not be replaced by the customers themselves.
    thanks and good job

    Toussaint Francois:
    No, it is irrelevant to the COP of the E-Cat QX. The COP of the E-Cat QX is given by the ratio between the energy that enters the E-Cat QX and the energy that the same E-Cat QX generates.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Because I hate to waste the warm air that exits from the control box. It is not a fundamental issue, but still there is energy to recover at COP 1, easy to be recovered, whatever the power of the plant and whatever the utilization, just preheating the fluid before it enters the reactors.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    With the very high COP of the E-Cat QX reactors, what is the reason you are working so hard on recovering heat from the control system, which I would assume would be somewhat insignificant compared to the heat produced by many E-Cats powered by the controller?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  • Toussaint françois

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    One question please,when you will optimise the recovery of the energy consumed by the cooling system, do you think it will increase the COP of your E-CAT QX ?

    Warm Regards

    Toussaint françois

  • Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    In these days we are in the USA doing work related to the control system, to miniaturize it and also I am making measurements related to the recovery of all the energy consumed by the cooling system.
    Both in the USA and in Sweden we are working on the industrialization issue.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Yes, the energy consumed by the control system is entirely recovered with a heat exchanger. We are measuring the thermal energy recovered by means of an air/air heat exchanger and we are recovering almost totally the energy consumed by the circuitry and the fans of the control system. Obviously the same energy can be recovered by an air/water heat exchanger, preheating the water at the inlet of the E-Cat.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Prof

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    The more I watch the video of the Stockolm demo, the more I consider the Ecat QX a masterpiece. By the way, the energy consumed by the control system to cool the component and the heat dissipation of the components is almost totally recoverable by means of a heat exchanger.
    Congratulations,
    Prof

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The science journal NATURE reports that lightning can trigger nuclear reactions and create isotopic changes in the atmosphere.

    https://www.nature.com/news/lightning-makes-new-isotopes-1.23033

    Teruaki Enoto, an astrophysicist at Kyoto University in Japan reports:

    “On 6 February, the detectors sensed an unusual event. A double lightning bolt just off the coast shot out an initial, one-millisecond spike of γ-rays, with relatively high energies of up to 10 megaelectronvolts. This was followed by a γ-ray afterglow of less than half a second. Then there was a telltale signal — γ-rays concentrated at 511 kiloelectronvolt ??s of energy, which lasted for about a minute. Physicists say this is the unmistakable signature of positrons annihilating in a puff of energy as they hit electrons in the surrounding matter.”

    You have not reported production of high energy gamma rays (10 MeV) in the E-Cat QX (or its previous generations).

    If lightning can produce isotopic changes or even electron-positron reactions in the atmosphere, it is even more remarkable that the E-Cat can do so on a much smaller scale. Of course, there is little if any Nickel or Lithium in the air.

    Besides the existing Trade Mark – “The New Fire”, what do you think of the terms “Bottled Lightning”, “Leonardo’s Lightning” or even “Rossi’s-Lightning”?

    Congratulations on your successful demonstration at the IVA on Friday, Nov 24th.

    I/(We) wish you and your team success in the build-up of the Industrialization phase.

    As you already know, ‘SUCCESS’ only comes before ‘WORK’ in the Dictionary.

    Best regards,

    Joseph Fine

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Some questions:
    1- how long is the charge of the QX enough for?
    2- how will be made the recharge?
    3- how much will it cost?
    Thanks,

    Dear Andrea:
    I think that to put many modules of the Ecat QX in parallel is better than making one big module.

    Brokeeper:
    Thank you for your kind expressions.
    The production, as well as the financial expansion, will follow the demand from the market. Surely local manufacturing concerns will be necessary, but iit is opportune not to put the cart ahead of the horses.

  • Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on a very persuasive demonstration!
    With the advent of new interests from corporations, the launch of industrialization of the product and industrialization of the production, do you currently have plans for future facility expansion beyond the two plants?

    You have mentioned previously that once the E-Cats will be on the market, “very likely there will be made all the necessary financial operations to have an exponential diffusion of the product”. My thought is, once that happens competition for the E-Cat QX will be fierce vying for the obvious profit margin advantage and will stress production demand beyond the current two plants.
    Would doubling of the production output per year reasonably reflect its massive exponential distribution?
    Thank you and God bless.

    Can you comment on the flashes of light coming from the reactor about once every 8 seconds? I noted that the time between flashes varied between a minimum of about 3 seconds to a maximum of 11 seconds.

    It would be nice if there were small factories and workshops around the world that build devices and applications with the technology.

    Instead of waiting, chatting and buying later, we could all work and be creative.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I watched today the video of the demo in Stockolm and I am shocked: the E-Cat, the clear simplicity of the measurements, the honesty of the use of the oscilloscope, the geniality of the dummies, the high profile of the attendants, all these factors have made your demo a masterpiece. I believe within one, two years the Ecat QX will be in the market.
    Excellent.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Considering the size and nominal power output of the Quark reactors, I suggest a 100 Quark unit could be of the dimensions of 50mm x 12mm diameter, cylindrical tube. Conceptually, this would consist of 4 grouping of 25 Quark reactors located along the longitudinal axis of the cylinder. Each 25 Quark grouping would be equal distance from the longitudinal axis of the cylinder near the outside and equally distributed, located just below the surface of the cylinder.

    A thermal modeling of such a unit, producing 2kW of thermal power, as a horizontal cylinder in air would result in a surface temperature of about 2,000 degC, assuming 100C ambient and convective and radiative transfer only.

    This roughly 2″ by 1/2″ cylinder would be relatively easy to handle, produce a reasonable amount of power and could allegedly be controlled by a single control unit.

    So, as an example, for a 1GW electrical power generating plant, assuming 50% Carnot efficiency, you would need 1 million of these cylinders to power the plant. Thoughts?

    Marco:
    Yes the T has been obtained by spectrometry.
    The max T it reaches is about 3,000 K.
    We try to obtain a clean spectrum, but it is very difficult. Obviously impossible in the situation we were in Stockolm, due to the light from the big screen.
    Sorry, I cannot give information to the other questions.

    We want not to have a great emphasis while the product is not on the shelves. Then we will apply the necessary force to the emphasis.
    Yes, the COP raises proportionally with the percentage of power.

    Dear Andrea
    congratulations for the great demo you did of your invention. The world is no more the same. I was waiting this moment for years and now that it’s happened it seems to me impossible that everything still go on the same way. I was expecting a great emphasis and a global media coverage. First pages in newspapers and TV news and things like that. But …. nothing! Mah?! We must be patient Andrea, the world don’t really understand the relevance of this event. Wasn’t there scientific reporters attending the demo in Stockholm ?
    Another technical question, you stated that the QuarkX was at 30% of its potential and it was reported a COP near 500. Does it means that the COP con be over 1500 when QuarkX operates at its full power ?

    God Bless you
    Marco Serra
