    Chuck Davis,

    I enjoyed your post, but paraphrasing Andrea Rossi, the solution will be an integrated one. The battery (or capacitor) should be large enough to handle peak loads and transients. The eCat may not be running all the time (e.g., during high ambient temperatures, during idle times or low speed times when the eCat would produce too much excess power, during parked times inside an enclosed volume — garage). True, the amount of battery space can be reduced. What I was previously attempting to show is that even an undersized eCat (22kW) could extend the range of an electric car so that the limiting factor would be the human need to stop and get out of the car.

    Karl Poehlmann:
    Yes, but high temperature is inside the system, not outside, and it is made to produce work, not to be dissipated somewhere.

    @Chuck Davis
    A mix of batteries and supercapacitors should be necessary.

    A lithium battery can’t be recharged too fast, so you can’t sustain the 400+KW of power of regenerative braking with a little 5-10kwh battery: in a such powerful braking, most of the energy would be wasted and MUST be wasted, otherwise the battery could explode.

    You can’t put a too big ECat with a small battery for the same reason: too much waste heat and battery overheating, you will have to underutilize the ECat for most of the time, because the battery should be recharged not too fast.

    A small lithium battery can’t provide enough peak power to accelerate, for the same reason: if you are at 50-60mph, you are providing already about 20KW and to accelerate you need an higher power for some time.

    Also abrupt change in current flow are bad for the life expectancy of the battery.

    A mix of a small battery and a small supercapacitor should be used: the supercapacitor provide the peak power for acceleration and for fully recover of regenerative braking acting as a buffer and slowly charging or discharging the small battery.

    Regards, Marco.

  • Donald

    I read the e-book “Ecat-the new fire” of Vessela Nikolova: do you confirm what is written in this book?

  • Marco

    @Chuck Davis
    Better are supercapacitors. They are less polluting to produce and recycle, are less inflammable and support way more recharge cycles and istantaneous power. The only disadvantage is the capacity, but if you do not want a car that should sustain indefinitely 100 or more mph, but only legal speeds, a 20-30Kw Ecat and a few KWh supercapacitor should suffice… Just for sprint and for peak power in regenerative braking: in an emergency braking, the power required to absorb by the battery is often too high and the efficiency in energy recovery is low. With supercapacitors this is not a problem.
    Electric regards,
    Marco.

  • Chuck Davis

    @Steven N. Karels,
    The large number of batteries in current EV design is to extend the range. With an Ecat on board most of those batteries can be tossed since the Ecat will be constantly recharging the remaining batteries, which would result in a major reduction of weight and price.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    On electric cars – the newer cars have all electric ranges of up to about 200+ miles. If you could have a 22 kW output eCat and convert nearly all of the energy into electricity, that would be sufficient to run highway speeds, with rest stops for the driver and passengers, across the country. For example, my 2015 Chevy Volt has an 11kW battery and I get about 30 miles of range. So if I drove at 60 mph, a 22kW electric generator should keep up with the demand. My point being with the newer, longer range cars, a continually operating eCat, with high enough conversion efficiency, would extend the electric range significantly. And any thermal output would be minimized. If you can make the eCat-SK Leonardo work, this is a natural market. Who would not want a car that you only had to refuel once or twice per year and no carbon emissions?

    Dear Dr Rossi
    Maybe this article will interest you.

    Little-understood crystals called “strange metals” appear to dissipate energy at a maximum rate allowed by the laws of quantum mechanics. The effort to understand this fundamental speed limit and what electrons are doing inside the materials has turned up surprising connections to black holes, gravity and quantum information theory.

    Hello DR Rossi

    I like your suggestion of
    “ECat SK – Leonardo “
    It honours a great man
    and the Country of your birth.
    I have a feeling Sergio Focardi
    would like it also.

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations with your progress on the electric Ecat. If this Ecat is really able to power itself, the the name Ecat SK Leonardo is truly well chosen. Leonardo da Vinci, the formidable genius, who excelled in so many disciplines, which seems also the the case for the Ecat SK Leonardo.
    I am not sure if what you published today, also means that you now have strong evidence that the Ecat SK Leonardo indeed works. If so, how many days has it been in operation without taking power from any other source?
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • Rick 57

    Dear Andrea,

    Leonardo seems to me appropriate because it is also the name of your Company.

    If you are looking for an acronym, why not Ecat-LH where LH stays for Lion Heart, the origin of Leonardo name.

    Can you confirm the goal of an Ecat with no external power supply has been achieved ?

    Wishes of Heart,
    Riccardo

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Readers:
    Today, May 2 2019, is the 500th year after the passing of Leonardo da Vinci. We celebrated it here with a substantial step forward toward the electric Ecat that generates also the electric power to fuel itself. What about the name “Ecat SK-Leonardo” ?
    Warm Regards,

    Frank Acland:
    I prefer not to give this information, for the time being. In due tome we will publish the references. We are not expanding fast in this period, because we want to resolve the problems emerging now and again in the first wave.
    Thank you for the attention to our work,

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you inform us how many customers Currently have E-cats operating at their sites?

    Many thanks,

  • Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi

    1 – Can you publish the number of E-Cat in operation in your laboratory serving your R & D?
    2 – There must be a large amount of thermal energy released by these machines. Is this energy used or released into the atmosphere?
    Good success for E-Cat R & D
    cordially
    Raffaele

  • Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Due to dry skin, I revisited the environmental issues the magic E-Cat may be able to resolve. Would it be possible for a steam primary loop to release on control enough vapor to bring central air to a comfortable level?
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

    Rita:
    The Casimir force is weak, but, as explained in my paper, in par. 1, it is not impossible that in certain conditions the Casimir force can balance the Coulombian force. It is not my first choice, but cannot be ignored.

  • Rita

    Dr Rossi,
    What is your position about the possibility that the Casimir force is a possible explication of the Rossi effect?

  • Devon

    Dear dr Andrea Rossi,
    If you succeed in making a 100% ssm Ecat SK you will make a revolution also in the car market. This will have consequences. Are you afraid of it?

    Sincerely, I am not listening the rock and troll music played by the house organ forums and surely we will not act to react to it. This said, obviously what you ask for sooner or later will be allowed.

    Nils Fryklund:
    1- yes
    2- the answer to this question is complex and invests confidential issues
    3- I must go on with the quest for directly generated electricity. We are working on both the issues. The heat is done, the electricity not yet. The consequences of electricity would give COP infinite with enormous consequences ( from cars, to industries, houses, you name it, you get it ). I am not sleeping working on this. Also because now I have a clear view about the theoretical bases.

    Dear Andrea:

    in mid-March, you shared that between May and June 2019, testing of your newly invented apparatus for direct electricity production from the ECat SK would allow you to have a stronger opinion on the potential for success.

    Do you still have this same view? Are the initial results still pointing in this direction?

    my best,

    Buck

  • Nils Fryklund

    Dear Andrea!
    1. Do you still use parts or fuel from the old 1MW-plants?
    2. Is the fuel-powder-quantity proportional to the effect on the
    E-cats?
    3. Is the E-catSK working so well so you have time to make bi-product,
    for exemple electricity? It is fantastic enough with heat-energy.
    Best regards
    Nils Fryklund
