    Are you informed that the US has reopened the Idaho Test Reactor ( TREAT ) to improve the testing of nuclear fuels to make them disaster proof, to avoid catastrophic events?
    In this facility, built inside an area of 2300 sq km, about 80 km far from Idaho Falls, they are making experiments to spur the nuclear power industry, because they say it is the sole way to reduce the global warming. What is your opinion?

    US wind energy capacity in 2019 should rise the most in six years as the federal production tax credit phases out…

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    My previous posts was not an attempt to gather design information, although any scraps from the Master’s table will be quickly devoured. When I did prototype development, I used Expresspcb. https://www.expresspcb.com/. It provided free, easy to use pcb layout software including stand component patterns and they could turnaround a few pcbs in as little as one day. They were also reasonably priced.

    My other comment dealt with microcontrollers or microprocessors. I used the TI MSP430 as it had a wealth of built-in hardware (timers, D/A, A/D, etc.) and was easy to use. They also have inexpensive test boards to help learning their micro.

    When you are doing rapid prototyping and have a design pretty well set but are adjusting parameters, such as event timing or control logic, a micro can facilitate the ease of changes.

  • Dear Andrea,
    on the ecat.com website we find the following estimates, referring to versions of ECat prior to QX / SK
    ECAT Energy Density> 100 000 x oil
    ECAT Power Density> 100 kW / kg
    ECAT Fuel Reserves> 10 billion years
    ECAT Fuel Cost <1/1000 x Oil
    Can you update them?
    I suppose that right now the processing costs are still significantly higher than the costs of the raw material.
    Don't you think that instead of talking about infinite COP would it be better to give a real estimate of energy purchase costs from future customers? Can you already promise a saving of at least 50% or is it premature?

    Frank Acland:
    We are still in an R&D phase, therefore I am still making by hand ( solder, board and components at hand ) the control box, correcting on the paper the schematic when errors pop up. It will be manufactured by robots when and if the system will work.
    I am very optimistic about the fact that it could work, but so far it is premature. The fact that making a board by hand is not accurate is not true. It is slower, of course, but, you know, robots are fast, but they do not invent. They make things faster after things have been invented. Fortunately, otherwise I’d be jobless, albeit I have a plan B: could play drums with you at the piano and Thomas Florek at the guitar. “The A.I. Fused”
    Warm Regards,

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    I am glad to hear you are still positive about the Electric E-Cat. I remember at one point you said you were making control boards by hand, which I would expect is not the most accurate way to make them. Are you still doing this, or have you found a better way?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are you using microcomputers/microcontrollers in your control board? Once the board is designed, built and tested, many minor changes in timing, logic, etc. can be accommodated by reprogramming the micro. Or is the control timing so critical that discrete component implementation is required?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    We are working like dogs. The theory id sound, the reactor is OK, now it’s all in the electronics. The boards I made so far have not been so good, but we are progressing and I believe we are getting closer and closer to success. If we succeed, the COP becomes infinite.
    Warm Regards,
    Andrea

    Caro Andrea,
    Did you read the last work of Alexander Parkhomov cited on http://www.E-Catworld.com ? What do you think ?

    Dr Rossi,
    watching http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    I can understand thet the hottest part of the plasma inside the Ecat SK is at the center top, right?

    @Chuck Davis:
    I just referred to a range of time: during the last 1000 years the inventions have been infinite.

  • Giulio

    Dr Rossi
    Which is the highest temperature you reach in the highest density point of the plasma inside the Ecat SK?

  • Norbert

    Dear Andrea
    Is it still “An impossible invention” of Mats Lewan a book that is worth its price?
    Cheers

    @Peter:
    What has been discovered 1000 years ago that could be possibly compared with even the current Ecat design?

    Colin:
    Think to Boeing: isn’t it strange that the problem of the instrumentation didn’t show up during the 5 sigma reliability surely they did ?
    It is normal that when you pass from a prototype in the R&D lab to industrial applications many shortcomings show up due to specific situations that in a lab you do not have.
    And it is normal that the problems are resolved. Our Clients know it and signed a disclaimer related to the probability of initial malfunctions. For this reason it is necessary a back up.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    It depends on the control system that the Client wants. To stop the heat exchange immediately a by-pass of the secondary is necessary.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    When the eCat (whatever variant) is in a self-sustaining mode (SSM) of operation, and you command an immediate shut-down, what is the average time before thermal power generations ceases?

  • Colin

    Dear Mr Rossi, It is strange the current problems didn’t show up during the very long testing process you carried out to demonstrate 5 sigma reliability.

    Dr Rossi,
    If you really will show an Ecat self sustaining without any external source, this will be the most important invention of the last thousand years.
    Thank you also for the sincerity to tell us you are having problems in this pioneers period of the industrial launch of the heat sales.
    God bless you,
    Peter

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Are the problems with the E-Cat SK that you are dealing with getting fewer and farther between already? Or are they occurring at the same rate as before?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Dear Andrea,
    I consider it wise to give precedence to the problems that inevitably arise in all the first uses of prototypes.
    a) Do these problems have stable solutions?
    b) Your first-aid measures become less burdensome over time?
    c) During this phase do other possible customers require new contracts?
    d) Even in this difficult phase, is the financial balance sheet of your initiative positive?
    I follow you with ever-lively interest and sympathy, wishing you all the best.
    May God help you and bless your efforts.
    Gian

    We are pausing the roll out, waiting the problems become “few and far in between”, as you correctly write.

    Dear Andrea,
    Regarding “we have many problems emerging now and then”, would you consider pausing the roll out of the SK until problems become “few and far in between”? Or are you still actively selling it making clients aware of intermittent issues?
    Best regards.

    Dear John:
    My apologies for the late answer.
    I think that in this research line there is a substantial continuity, demonstrated by the evolutionary experimental process in the role of interactive atom boundary, in particular in the H atom: this thread could be classified as follows: crystal lattice and materials with static and dynamic interactions; oscillating electromagnetic fieldsinteracting by resonance; Coulombian and prohibitive electrostatic barriers; magnetic fields: border of the interactions and plasmas.
    My opinion is that Rossi’s innovation consists in havinf exploited the effects listed above to an experimental and technological level.

    Dear Freed Bernard:
    Sorry to answer your comment so late.
    First of all, thank you for your kindness and your reference to my youth…
    I simply made my duty fighting the barbarian fascist regime in Greece: I have been always a believer of what real democracy would be…a time that might come when we all will be freed from fossil fuels.

    Our Customers have a pay back immediate, since they pay energy at a lower price. They have nothing to pay back, we use the structure they already have or that they should have whatever other energy source they’d choose.

    Dr Rossi,
    How long is the average pay-back time for your clients?
