    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Yet another SKLep application idea.

    FACTS:
    1. Modern refrigerators consume 100W to 250W of power.
    2. Daily energy consumption is 1 to 2 kW-hrs.

    DESIGN:
    Consider an SKLep unit, that receives 120VAC (or 220VAC), and outputs 100W of 14VDC.
    This runs continuously and charges a 14 VDC battery with a capacity of about 70 Amp-hrs.
    The battery drives a DC/AC inverter that can output 250W of AC power.
    The inverter powers the modern refrigerator.

    ANALYSIS:
    SKLep consumes 1W of power resulting in a daily energy usage of 0.024 kW-hrs.
    Assuming $0.20 per kW-hr cost, results in a yearly saving of $73 to $146.
    Assuming about a 12-year operation, the saving would be between $876 and $1,752.
    Thoughts?

    Roberto:
    As soon as we reach pre-orders for at least 1 million units of the SKLep or Mini-Skleps for the same worth combined, as it is well explained here:

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    If I am not mistaken there is now only 3 months left till the SKLep and MiniSKL orders will be void if no deliveries have been made. Is this a concern for you?
    Kind regards,

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Many European cities have introduced energy-saving measures. They have reduced lighting, air-conditioning, heating, etc. Would your devices be helpful to them?

    This issue is not dealt with by the Client.

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You have posted that the SKLep should function correctly when input power going to the SKLep is coming from an AC/DC converter which is powered from the Grid. Will this correctly function if the DC output is floating (i.e., the DC return line is not tied to Ground)?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven Nicholes Karels:
    Thank you for the suggestion,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You stated “The thread will respect the local standards” This means that you will have local variants. I would suggest having one standard unit with metric threading. This would reduce cost and eliminate cross-threading – using the wrong bolt/thread. Best to keep it simple. My suggestion.

    Yes, there are mounting holes. The thread will respect the local standards,

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Maybe you should talk directly to the German regime, show some specialists they would send to your factory and show your invention personally. This could be your best occasion to get really big orders!
    Best regards

  • Dear Andrea Rossi,
    thanks again for your work.

    Questions about the operating conditions of the Ecat SKLep:
    1) Does the Ecat SKLep start and produce electricity, if the ambient temperature is between -10°C and less than 0°C?
    2) Does the Ecat SkLep start and produce electricity, if the ambient temperature is more than 0°C?
    3) Does the Ecat SKLap needs a special ambient temperature to start and to produce electricity?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    It is likely time that the SKLep mounting option(s) be discussed.

    May I assume that at least one side of the rectangular prism that is the shape of the SKLep had mounting holes?

    If there are mounting holes, what size screw and thread would be used to mount the SKLep to a a plate? For example, M3 x 0.5, with a maximum length of 6 mm? How many holes are there, 3, 4? Dimensions of the hole pattern would be nice to know. For example, a 5 cm x 5 cm square four-hole pattern.

  • Dan Galburt

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    An adaptor plugs into a 120VAC grid outlet and outputs 12 VDC to the ECat SKLep.

    Question

    Are any additional connections between the grid and the ECat SKLep required for it to operate?

    Warm Regards

    Dan Galburt

    Battery storages in the grid systems do not affect the function of the Ecat,

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For the 100W SKLep unit –

    1. Do you have a mounting design firmly defined?
    2. If so, are there threaded mounting holes on the SKLep? If so, size, number, and geometry?
    3. Will there be places the user could drill and tap on the SKLep for mounting purposes?

  • D.Müller

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    I wonder if such battery storages in the grid make a difference for the function of the ecat skl?
    https://www.sma.de/en/newsroom/news-details/eisenach-large-scale-storage-system-promotes-integration-renewable-energies-utility-grid
    In the future there will be more and more of them.

  • Rod Carbuncal

    Hi there,
    Will any mains 110/220V AC to 12v adapter work or is the adapter you supply made specially for the E-Cat?

    Thanky,
    Roddy

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dieter Wagner:
    Sorry for the typo !
    Thank you for your correction.
    All we need is just a regular 110 or 220/230 V outlet.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Will your contractual obligations to the current investor expire after the end of this year?
    Best regards,

  • Dieter Wagner

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I was puzzled by your reply to Robert.
    If Ecat SKL needs 2 phases to work, it would mean that the operation on a regular 110V or here in Europe 230V socket would not work. Operation would only be near the fuse box where 3 phases usually arrive . Or is a regular 230V outlet connected to the mains sufficient? I would ask you to specify or correct this.
    The next question would be if this is the same for the Mini SKL?
    Thank you very much!
    Kind regards
    Dieter Wagner

  • Andrea Rossi

    Robert:
    400 V is 3 phase, 230 is 1 phase. The Ecat is designed to be connected with a 1 phase grid, so far.

    Sandro:
    1- I think the paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    is more mature and encompasses better the theoretical bases of our technology
    2- The Countries with more readings are USA and EU.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Sandro

    Dear dr. Rossi
    I have noted that your paper “E-Cat SK and long range particle interactions” has approximately 100x the number of reads of the other papers that you published on Researchgate.
    1- How do you explain this huge difference?
    2- Could you publish a recent statistics of the readers country?
    thanks in advance

    Lutz:
    The operating time flows only when the Ecat is working: the presumed lifespan of 100000 hours is related to the working time. When the Ecat is turned off it does not consume its lifespan.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Lutz

    Hallo Dr. Rossi,

    verlängert sich die Betriebszeit wenn der Ecat abgeschaltet ist oder arbeitet er weiter?
    Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Lutz

    Does the operating time extend when the Ecat is switched off or does it continue working?
    Thank you very much for your answer.
    Sincerely, Lutz

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I read the report of the HDIAC of the US Department Of Defense
    https://HDIAC.org/technical-inquiries/notable/concepts-behind-e-cat-sk/
    It gives evidence that the highest technological echelons look at the Ecat technology with respect.

    Dr Rossi,
    I read today this new publication, that I think the readers of the JoNP will find very interesting, because it shows a proton model that has a strong affinity with the electron model that you deem the theoretical base of the operation of the Ecat. Here is the link to read this new publication:
    “The Proton and Occam’s Razor”, by Giorgio Vassallo and Andreas Kocacs

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “The controller is incorporated inside the Ecat, so the consume of the Ecat includes also the consume of the controller,”

    1. Is this a change to the original design which had a separate controller that handled one or multiple Ecat SKLep units?
    2. if so, is this applicable to both the 10W SKLep and the 100W SKLep units (and larger units)?
    3. Are the dimensions of the 100W SKLep unit the same as previously specified?
    4. Can the embedded Controller receive external commands and/or transit status information?

  • Dear Blog Readers,
    from Germany a forecast for the electricity price – one reason more to pre-order and support this great project:

    The current electricity price forecast by the consultancy Prognos paints a gloomy picture: according to the prediction, prices in the wholesale electricity sector will exceed the 500 euro per megawatt hour mark on an annual average in the worst case in 2023.

    To put this in perspective: in 2019, the average electricity price was around 38 euros. The electricity price in the coming year would thus be 13 times higher than before the start of the Corona crisis.

    Good morning Dr. Rossi
    How much is the consumption of one controller with 10 SKLeps (more or less).
    Thank you : Mario
