    Dear Andrea,

    The SSM streaming setup is great to look at and also fairly easy to understand for a layman like me. No input from a battery or the grid does give this ECATSKLEP SSM the unique stamp of the 1st commercially available infinite energy source.
    I have the money ready for 10 pre-ordered SKLEP (or 100 minis), I am in contact with a certified installer and I have worked out the plan how to use the SKLEP as my prime energy source.
    Only 1 aspect is missing the ECATSKLEP units themselves.

    Really I can already use your invention now, I would rather have it today than tomorrow. Every day that I have to wait longer makes it harder to keep this up. The pressure from our government to adjust your home to a more sustainable standard is increasing every day. You actually have no choice, adapt or pay a lot more for your energy consumption. So there will come a time that I have to spend the reserved money for the SKLEP units on something that is less efficient, not infinite and therefore a lot less beneficial than your invention.

    In short I’m starting to run into time problems if I don’t get the pre-ordered 10 units delivered this year.

    You can therefore see the following statement as an open invitation!
    Leonardo Corp. is welcome to come and install the 10 units in my house under their supervision with the possibility to check this regularly. I have no commercial interest whatsoever, have no electric engineering skills and I will pay for the units according to the specified price. Only Leonardo corp. is allowed to modify/change something on the installed units feeding electricity to the grid. All I want to do is make day to day photos of the electricity meter and some movies that shows what the ECat installation delivers.

    You already know what my potential network is and with this relatively simple ECat setup and accompanying photos plus movies I can motivate this network in several steps to start pre-ordering. That’s my promise!

    Kind regards,
    Harold

    Continuo a consigliare il monopattino come banco di test, è un mezzo economico molto usato, non ha pedali e basa tutto su un piccolo motore, le batterie hanno un’autonomia limitata.
    Di solito il voltaggio è 36V oppure 48V, il firmware è spesso modificabile.
    Ci sono tante community di appassionati, soprattutto su Telegram, dove tanti esperti modificano il firmware e lo mettono a disposizione.
    Si riesce facilmente a modificare il software per avere più potenza e velocità, aggiungere batterie in serie o in parallelo.
    Non credo che alle persone interessi quale mezzo usi nel test, gli interessa sapere che ecat funziona e può mantenere in funzione un mezzo elettrico.
    Un monopattino comune non supera in media le due ore di funzionamento continuo ed ha poi bisogno di 6-8 ore di ricarica da una presa 220 volt.
    Sarebbe una manna per chi lo usa come mezzo di spostamento e comunque sarebbe ottimo come test di dimostrazione, chiunque capirebbe che è un metodo scalabile ad automezzi ben più potenti e voluminosi come le automobili.

    I continue to recommend the scooter as a test bench, it is a very used economic vehicle, it has no pedals and is based on a small engine, the batteries have limited autonomy.
    Usually the voltage is 36V or 48V, the firmware is often changeable.
    There are many enthusiast communities, especially on Telegram, where many experts modify the firmware and make it available.
    You can easily modify the software for more power and speed, add batteries in series or in parallel.
    I don’t think people care what vehicle you use in the test, they care to know that ecat works and can keep an EV running.
    A common scooter does not exceed an average of two hours of continuous operation and then requires 6-8 hours of recharging from a 220 volt socket.
    It would be a boon for those who use it as a means of transport and in any case it would be excellent as a demonstration test, anyone would understand that it is a scalable method for much more powerful and bulky vehicles such as cars.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    if you communicated how many orders are missing to reach a million, we could divide that number between us and cross the long-awaited finish line … if the number is not too high! Obviously it is a hypothesis that should draw your agreement and that of other readers.

    Dear Andrea,

    Just thinking about an “easy and convincing” electric mobility test.
    Electric Go-Kart.
    Your team could modify a race electric go-kart, adding the necessary SKLep SSM units to let it run in a kart racing circuit.
    Normally electric go-karts have a battery that provide a range of around 25/30 Km.
    A modified go-kart could run indefinitely.
    Even better, You in first person and the members of your team could drive it. Perfect marketing.

    In my opinion, a big company is out of the question as a partner for the creation of a demo vehicle with ECat. It has to be a company with short decision-making processes. Tesla (Elon Musk) or the Formula 1 team Red Bull Racing come to mind. Red Bull has the technological expertise and the parent company Red Bull is a marketing expert. One remembers the Red Bull Stratos project in 2012, when Felix Baumgartner completed a parachute jump from a height of 40 km. This event was broadcast live worldwide.
    Because of the high advertising value for Red Bull, they would probably do the same for Leonardo Corp. for free.
    Incidentally, Formula 1 is a guest in Miami in the first week of May. The contact at Red Bull would be Dr. Helmut Marko.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I have a question regarding the SKLep SSM 100W units and connecting to an Enphase IQ7 micro-inverter. The IQ7 will output up to 350W of electrical power with a conversion efficiency of 97.5%. I understand the 100W SKLep SSM module will shutdown if more than 100 Watts of electrical power is demanded. I plan to use 3 or 4 100W SKLep SSM units in series to provide DC power to the IQ7 microinverter. Are 4 100W SKLep SSM units ne needed or will 3 units suffice, with regards to the overload feature of the 100W SKLep SSM units? The 100W SLKep SSM units will be connected in series to provide either 36VDC or 48 VDC.

    Dr Rossi,
    Yesterday the streaming on Youtube has been interrupted for some time, but, fortunately, the Twitch backup streamed perfectly: GREAT, GREAT, GREAT !
    The idea to make two streamings on 2 different channels has been genial; now nobody can say that the interruptions have been made on purpose.
    Thank you for your great job,

    Here’s an AC/DC mini-split heat pump which if operated on DC would not require an inverter and would consequently have no inverter power loss. It’s available in 12,000 or 24,000 btu https://youtu.be/AxmKiisAZ0I

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Yet another application for SKLep SSM technology – Water Towers

    Water Towers store elevated water for a local city or high-rise building. Being elevated, even if grid power is lost, the water pressure and delivery remains for awhile.

    Current pump technology pumps source water into the Water Tank using grid electricity to run the pump.

    I would propose using SKLep SSM technology to provide or supplement the electricity going to the pump(s). This would significantly reduce the cost of powering the pumps and reduce carbon emission associated with generating Grid electrical power.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I suggested the Tesla Model 3 Plaid or Performance because:

    1. it is so sexy.
    2. I can do high speed, thus use up onboard battery capacity quickly. Therefore, minimizing the time to show that the energy did not come from stored batteries.
    3. The circular racetrack because it is provides lass stress on the car. Forces are at equilibrium.
    4. It would gain major news attention – fast car, driving quickly past the limit of alternative energy supply, will make the nightly news.

    Thoughts?

    Gavino Mamia:
    Yes, we had the usual unrequested update by Microsoft that turned off the computer during the night. Fortunately the backup streaming on Twitch tv is totally independent from the Youtube one, because we made it with independent computer and camera, therefore it is almost impossible that both the computers are updated at the same time. This fact is extremely important in the case of the self sustaining Ecat, for obvious reasons, and it has been an intelligent suggestion of a journalist. Also your suggestion to put a watch with the lead of the seconds perpetually in movement has been important.

    Dear Andrea,
    Another advantage if you use an electric Renault Kangoo with a petrol range extender is that you can hire an external company for the modifications and they can temporarily use a bank of lead batteries instead of E-cats during the modification and testing process. There is plenty of room and load capacity for the lead batteries in the Kangoo. When the modification and testing is complete you know what voltage and current the E-CatSKLep stack must deliver and you just exchange the lead batteries with the E-catSKLep stack.
    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    The idea of putting E-CatSKLEp:s in an electric car is brilliant.
    An electric car has tens of man years of proprietory software code for managing the car, batteries and all subsystems in numerous computers. In order to be able to charge the batteries with the E-Cats while driving you must modify the proprietary sourcecode in numerous ways. If you work together with an electric car company it will provide with the software modifications.
    If you in this stage prefer to do the conversion with your own team I would suggest to buy a small electric van that has a range extender ( eg Renault Kangoo with a petrol range extender).
    All the software is prepared for charging the batteries while driving. You only have to modify the computer software that controls the range extender that it is replaced with the E-CatSKLEp:s.
    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

  • Dear Andrea,
    Using the car as a demonstration sounds a good idea.

    Here is an example of a simple implementation: Don’t modify the car, only put the E-cats in the trunk. Each time the battery runs out, stop the car, open the trunk and plug a cable from the E-cats to the car’s socket and recharge it. Maybe this was what you had in mind originally(?)

    Not having to modify the car would reduce your work and makes it possible to e.g. se a car fresh from the factory line, or a car owned by a sceptic etc., to reduce sceptic speculation that there is hidden combustion engine or nuclear reactor etc. hidden inside.

    Dear Andrea,

    An electric car is really in tune with the times.
    Maico proposes the Renault Twizy as a base. It’s a good suggestion.
    It’s already an electric car with a rear compartment for the Sklep system.
    In addition, this vehicle has been sold for more than 10 years.
    Here is a project from a few years ago with Sklep installed in an electric car : https://photos.app.goo.gl/PZTNwgvm5zFT2BrF8

    Dear Andrea,
    regarding the demonstration on recharging an electric car, the choice of the car will be up to you or you will make an agreement with a manufacturer. I think any manufacturer would be happy to show their car going endless miles without recharging.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    The streaming videos showing the lamp powered by the Ecat SSM are great and show a “miraculous” device.
    You have received numerous suggestions for making and showing a different device powered by Ecat SSM. I thought that a toy car of the type that changes direction automatically when it slams could be used. It could be positioned within a bordered space, and the camera would view it from above.
    Kind regards,

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    22 kW power and 220 pcs of 100 Watt E-Cats are not needed.

    Here are 2 iconic cars:

    Fiat 500 weighing 499 kg and Citroen 2CV weighing 600 kg.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_500
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citro%C3%ABn_2CV

    Just replace the original motor with an electric motor and let’s say 50 units of 100 Watt E-Cats, because power 5 kW will be enough.

    Have A Nice Day

  • Maico

    Dear Doctor Rossi,

    as a partial integration of what was written a few hours ago, here are some photos of the vehicle I was referring to:

    https://www.alvolante.it/news/renault-twizy-cargo-338456/foto#renault-twizy-cargo_10_0_6

    I think that from the photos that can be found at the link sent, it’s easy to see that the space available for Sklep’s 2.5 kW is more than enough 😉

    Best regards

    Ciao Maico

    Hi Dr Rossi,

    Interesting to hear that you are thinking about a demo with an electric car charged via e-cat while driving on a racing track.

    It should be quite easy to go from dream to reality with this plan if the SKLep SSM works as advertised. Just put together a large enough pack with SKLep SSM units, put them in the car and connect them to the car’s battery via this light-weight 22kW adapter. Done! If the electric car you use cannot charge when driving for some reason (software or hardware), you just have to make some “charging stops” now and then. Even so, it would be an impressive demo that would quickly rule out any conventional energy source. Especially if you choose a small electric car with a small battery.

    Dear Doctor Rossi,

    the goal that he has given himself, that is to feed an EV with the ecat, is certainly “the dream of all of us”.

    If I may I would like to tell you my idea.

    The Renault Twizy in both the 45 and 80 versions is a full electric quadricycle which in my opinion would lend itself very well to the demo you imagined.

    I own this wonderful quadricycle in the 80 version and therefore I am able to provide you with the necessary technical details.

    Here are the main advantages I see in using this vehicle:

    1) is completely electric

    2) it is a quadricycle therefore comparable to a car

    3) it has a 6.1 kWh battery that works at a relatively low voltage of 58 V, (therefore not 400V or 800V like most electric cars) and therefore perfect for SKleps

    4) the Twizy on-board AC/DC charger has a recharging power of 2.1kW so the battery easily supports 2kW of “continuous” DC recharging

    5) weighs only 475 kg, reaches 80 km/h and has an engine with continuous power of 8kW (13kW peak)

    6) it’s a 2-seater in line but there is a 1-seater cargo version, but with a 180-litre trunk that could easily house the Skleps and the electronics to directly recharge the DC traction battery.

    7) it has high efficiency in the sense that on the plain (therefore on the track) it needs “only” 2.5 kW of power to maintain a constant speed of 45 km/h

    8) with 6.1 kWh of battery the Twizy can travel without problems from 60 to 70 km in a city route

    I don’t want to go too far, all these premises to say that:

    a) A Twizy 80 cargo could be for you

    b) It could insert in the trunk an array of 6 (series) x 5 (parallel) of Skleps (30 in total) and relative electronics, suitably regulated, so as to have at least 58V x 44A (2552W) available to be used to recharge the battery and/or help the battery power the motor…..

    Without SKlep a 100% loaded Twizy 80 Cargo could “run on the track” at a maximum of 45 km/h for 2.5 hours…..

    With a configuration as described above ( 30 Sklep with suitable electronics that recharge the battery or help power the engine ) the Twizy 80 Cargo could “run on the track” at 45 Km/h practically ETERNAL !!!!

    I think a demonstration like this would convince anyone of the existence and functioning of the SKlep you built, advertised and, hopefully soon, sold 😉

    I hope that what you have just written will be appreciated, published and shared with all those who follow you and continue to follow you in all these years, waiting to “test by hand” your wonderful discovery.

    Best Regards

    Ciao Maico
