    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    How is your health, after the surgery you got in July 18? As you are the sole man able to develop the industrialization of the Ecat, your health is important also for us, not only for you.
    Godspeed,
    CC

  • Roby

    I agree with you, the efficiency of the Ecat must be calculated as a ratio between the energy generated by the Ecat and the energy that is consumed by the reactor, all the rest depends on the system of which the Ecat is part.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Angelo V.:
    Answers to your three questions:
    1- yes and we have already reached a satisying level
    2- yes
    3- I knoe that we are starting with selling heat, all the other are steps to be reached one by one, directly or indirectly: for example, once the ecat generates electricity, it is indirectly charging laptops, smart phones etc.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    Can you tell us an estimate of the cost to build an Ecat in $/kW?
    Warm Regards,
    Chuck Davis

  • Dear Andrea,
    I hope you enter the industrial energy market within a couple of years.
    Are you also working on minimizing your device and the necessary control / cooling equipment?
    In other words do you consider possible, in a not too distant future, the use of ECAT QX or SK as power supply or as a sort of very long-lasting battery in industrial and portable devices?
    I see in inverse temporal and size order the following possible applications:
    Military forniture
    Scientific missions
    Naval and industrial vehicles
    Automobiles and other elettric vehicles
    Electric tools and laptops
    Smartphones
    If this isn’t only a list of unfounded dreams, any obstacles are more technical (and / or security related) or rather bureaucratic (certifications needed)?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Adeline Morfee:
    Yes, you are correct.

    Dan Galburt:
    The heat recovered from the control panel is always recoverable by preheating the fluid to be heated by the Ecat and this specific recovery has COP 1 and the amount of energy consumed for it is the same in quantity as in any electric heater. It is true, though, that the efficiency of an electric heater is lower than a gas fuelled heater, but this fact does not affect substantially the “overall” consume.
    Yes, at the presentation of end January it will be calculated also the “overall” COP.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    You state that the “overall” COP of the E-Cat-QX is obviously greater than 1, but no measurements where taken to show that this is true. I understand that measurements that were taken provide evidence the E-Cat reactor itself has a high COP and I agree that the energy dissipated by the control system can be recovered with a COP of 1 but that energy still has to be supplied by a source of electrical energy which costs money. For a heating application where all of the control system power dissipation may be usefully recovered the cost of the electrical energy still increases the overall cost of energy provided by the E-Cat reactor.
    For electrical power applications the energy dissipated by the control system would probably not be useful.

    Question:

    At your January demonstration will measurements of both overall electrical input power or energy, and thermal output power or energy be taken to provide evidence that the E-Cat-SK has a usefully high overall COP?

    Best Regards

    Dan

  • JPR

    @Frank Acland:
    To calculate the efficiency of the Ecat only based on the energy that enters the reactor is correct and the way the measurements have been done is absolutely correct. Nonetheless, it is useful to know also the overall consume, even if I agree with Andrea Rossi on the fact that the heat dissipated from the control system can be recovered with COP 1 and therefore it pays for itself.
    Best Regards
    Jean Paul Renoir

  • Adeline Morfee

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I think that the COP of the Ecat is much higher than 1 even considering the energy consumed by the control system, otherwise there would be no point to sell the heat as you are doing, am I correct?
    A.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    The “overall COP” of the Ecat QX shown in the demo of Stockholm obviously was >1, but to talk of “overall COP” is wrong, because the COP of the Ecat must be measured with the ratio between the energy produced and the energy consumed by the Ecat. It has been explained that the control system consumes energy to cool down the overheat of the circuitry of the control panel, but this heat dissipation can be recovered with COP 1 and its cost completely compensated. Anyway the technology of the control panel has improved remarkably in this year passed from the demo of November 24 2018 and what you define “overall COP” will be disclosed at the presentation of end January. It is enough, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    At the Stockholm demonstration in 2017, the COP of the E-Cat QX was calculated to be around 500, however, we did not find out the power consumption of the control box, and so it was not clear if the COP of the whole system was >1.

    With a single E-Cat SK reactor, and including the power consumed by control box, is the overall COP >1?

    If yes, can you tell us an average overall COP?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Prof:
    I think this is the sole correct position we can assume, based on the study of the geological history of the known million years of our planet as we know it.
    To take under examination the last 100 years to understand millions of evolution is wrong: it is like to look at a derivative instead of to an integral.

    The sole link I can find of your comment with the subject of this Journal is an invitation for me to be trained as well as this champion to escape as far as possible from my Clients if the Ecat will not work…is this what you mean? ( LOL )

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Is the heat exchanger you are using for the Ecat SK useful also for a gas turbine?

    @Dan C,
    With regards your post regarding the poles being able to flip over and the experts who predict the estimated date. I am not an expert and I do not think there is one with regards this subject regarding the evolution of the Earth. When making predictions it is best to investigate a subject on a broad basis. In other words look at at all forms of evolution, this is not difficult. We live in a binary system i.e two opposite states and rely upon two opposite dimensions to function. Positive and negative are two opposite dimensions, Masculine and feminine are another two, fission and fusion, night and day the list is endless. The Earth is an evolving entity that supports life and it too evolves through a binary system. The Earth is on a helical trajectory moving along a path, the sun is a product of the magnetic electro field between two planets i.e. the planet in front and moves forward in a systemic system of evolution in tandem with the Earth. The ice age within which animals of consciousness existed became extinct because of a crossover with regards the evolution of the Earth. It crossed from a negative potential position into its positive potential position which represents expansion of an environment with an increase of an intensity of light. The same thing happens with puberty when the intelligence overrides the consciousness, this represents the binary activity of life wherein the vehicle becomes more self sufficient due to an intelligent aspect being in control i.e. a more positive expanded mind. The Earth is now proceeding towards old age and I believe no more flips, just instability but a conflagration many years in the future, by which time we will have all the technology and close associates to transition to safe life supporting environments. No need for doom and gloom mankind controls his destiny as he becomes more intelligent, in other words you have to look forwards and not backwards. Regards Eric Ashworth

  • Prof

    Dear Andrea,
    The President of the USA, Donald Trump, has said the same thing you said about the “Global Warming”: it exists, but it is not proven that it has been born by the human activities.
    Cheers
    Prof

  • Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Correct.

    Dear Andrea,
    When the Ecat will reach a high level of diffusion, we will see if it will affect positively the environment.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,

    Your inventions relating to “high T, small area heat exchanger” seem important and worthy of patent(s) independent of your LENR-related patents.

    Do you plan to make any “high T, small area heat exchanger” patent applications?

    thanks, WaltC

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dan C.:
    Good point.
    I agree. The displacement of the magnetic poles is probably a “suspect” of interest if we are trying to find the “criminal” that is changing the global climate.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    It is still cold, compared to the millions of Kelvin you need for the nuclear fusion. ITER and others are talking of hundred millions K and this is why they will never succeed, because it is impossible confine reliably such temperatures with an unavoidably unstable magnetic field, on a so big surface. Consider that a contact at this T even for a fraction of second between the plasma and any material would instantly sublimate the material the reactor is built with, whatever you use.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Kerlene:
    Yes, I agree.

    NRG di Casadei Marco:
    You are right, heat exchanging with so high T and so small area of exchange is a big problem. We resolved it and I think we made a masterpiece.
    To answer the questions of our Readers for me is as much pleasant as useful. I learn from them.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • NRG di Casadei Marco

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I read from your comment that the Ecat SK has very high temperatures: how can you avoid loss of efficiency?
    Thank you for answering every day to our questions,
    Marco Casadei

  • Karlene

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I agree with your diagnosis of the global warming: it is surely there, but there is no evidence of the fact that human activities are responsible for it. I agree also on the fact that, anyway, to say humans are responsible helps to better protect the environment from the pollution that is due to human activities beyond any reasonable doubt.
    All the best,
    Karlene

  • Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi, Scientist:

    A peak temperature of 24,000 K is very high. It should not be called ‘Cold’. (Except compared to the Solar Corona.)

    Thermal regards,

    Joseph Fine

  • Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    It is said the magnetic poles could flip at anytime. (This happens about every 25K years and is due.) It’s thought that this could reverse the ocean currents and no one knows what this would do to the climate, though probably not good.

    What I know is North would be South and East would be West. One may be in flight from New York to London and land in Brasília, Brazil.

    I recommend you take a universal language translator with you on your transatlantic flights. You never know what language you may encounter.

    Wishing you luck and good health,
    Dan C.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gil Baj:
    I read that the magnetic poles of our planet have been subject of a significant displacement. This could be a credible cause. But, again, to think that human activities are the sole cause could be “realpolitically” correct.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Scientist:
    The peak we reached is around 24000 K

  • Eddy

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    How can I buy the book of Mats Lewan about your invention?

  • Scientist

    From the wavelength you said, the temperature is about 6-7000 K. Can you say which is the peak T you reached?

  • Gil Baj

    Dear r Andrea Rossi:
    You repeated many times that you believe in the climate change on course, but you don’t think it is an effect due to the activities on mankind. Which you think can be the reason that is causing these changes? You are from Milan, Italy, so you can understand how strange is that in these days we have temperatures of 26-27 °C, with random flash floods: this is a tropical kind of weather…
    All the best,

    Silvia:
    if we are careful, we can reach a definition close to 1 nm, which is redundant to measure the power, but is important important for the theoretical experiments.

    If the main wavelength is about 430-440 nm the T of the fluid inside the Ecat SK is about 6900 °C, correct?
