    I appreciate the spirit of your suggestion, but I don’t think that a strumentalization of the Church with propagandistic goals should be a good idea: we serve God every day also by doing our work with Faith.

    I just used my Dewalt portable hammer drill which requires 12 VDC to run. The drill at full power lasts about 15 minutes. You could make a live demonstration in a local church with the pastor
    looking a portable plexiglass cage. Just verify that they are no hidden power sources by using a Geiger counter. Then run the demonstration for 12 hours. Have the entire church watch! The next
    step is to get the Pope to watch. Then tell everyone else to bugger off. You have many enemies, by doing this demonstration you will have God on your side.

    Dear JONP Users

    Progress Report on my Home Residential eCat NGU Design

    I am basing the design on 100W eCat NGU modules.

    My average electrical power consumption over the last year varies from 1.0 kW to 2.5 kW. The variation correlated with the summer months where I use central air-conditioning (electric) and it is lowest during the winter months when I use my gas furnace. My water heater is gas.

    I have a Tesla Wall charger. The above average kW includes the use of the Tesla Wall charger.

    For my conceptual design, I am planning to use 16 100W NGU units, connected by terminal boards in series, so that a power source of 1.6 kW at 12 VDC (and 8.33 Amps) is available. Conceptually, I could add an additional 16 100W NGU units and feed the NGU-generated power into the second PV input of the 6000XP. The 6000XP is rated to handle up to 8kW of PV input power. The serial connection is required to provide a voltage acceptable to the inverter.

    The off-grid inverter is an EG4 6000XP. One, with the option of a second 6000XP unit, will be used.

    The battery will be a Ruixu RX-LFP48100 Battery with a wall mount option. The 6000XP will be programmed to limit the battery charge and discharge current to 50 Amps. A single battery will connect to the 6000XP inverter.

    The 6000XP will accept the power from the serially connected NGU units when the power is fed to the inverter’s PV input. The 6000XP communicates with the battery via a comm cable.

    The battery serves as an additional energy source when transient conditions occur, such as the air-conditioning start-up.

    The priorities on the inverter will be: (1) the PV input (i.e., the NGU power); (2) the battery (set up to discharge between 90% and 10%) but limited in current; and (3) the electrical grid input – limited to 50AMP @ 240VAC.

    If the battery is discharged to the battery’s lowest allowed level, then Grid power will supplement the NGU power.

    The Tesla Wall unit will not be tied to the inverter output, but it will receive power directly from the electrical grid. The justification is that it is a high current requirement and only runs a short time, so that I can achieve reasonably fast recharge times.

    Optionally, the electric oven and stove may not be connected to the inverter output as they are high current loads.

    Conceptually, a second 6000XP and battery could be paralleled if additional power is needed.

    Current pricing:

    EG4 6000XP inverter – $1,399 USD
    Ruixu RX-LFP48100 Battery – $1,199USD

    A different design philosophy is needed compared to Solar inverters where the PV power is available only a few hours per day. In the PV case, the battery must have sufficient capacity to handle power demands when the PV is not outputting power (e.g., at night).

    With the 24/7, 100,000 hours of the NGU, a different approach, I believe, is needed.

    Thoughts?

    Wilfried.

    Time to take a deep breath… Ecat technology, like any other new technology, can be used for many reasons and purposes. In my opinion, it is likely to be used in applications where continuous, constant level electrical energy over a very long period of time is needed.

    There are many application areas and I have in the past suggested a few – baseload electrical power generation, long duration transportation (aviation, marine, automotive), long duration communications, lighting.

    Most military applications are too short-lived to find Ecat technology advantageous. But there are likely some military applications that some mind somewhere will find using this technology. As far as I can tell, this technology cannot be used to generate a weapon effect, like a blast or explosion.

    Before declaring that our species is not ready for this technology, perhaps, one should consider possible applications and see if the benefits outweigh the risks. The same thing we individually do every day on our daily drive to and from work.

    @ Steven Nicholes Karels

    I don’t understand their proposals. The first thing the unregulated market will do with the E-Cat is develop durable, pathetic and insidious weapons.
    Humanity is not ready for this energy source.

    Dr. Rossi,
    Assuming you have herd the phrase “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” surely you must have done the EV test already to make such a claim. If this is the case than why on earth is this technology not available in production yet? If it’s to fund the legal battles, Get a lone! if Trump can You can too. Just start the process already!

    Sir Jim Ratcliffe is founder and chairman of INEOS Group and a successful industrialist in the UK. I agree with his view on REX cars. The REX generator is not involved in meeting peak power demand when the ‘pedal is pressed to the metal’. A REX car looks like a fit for a modest number of SKLep DC generators to operate steadily. Would this avoid the current difficulties with fitting SKLeps to provide peak power? It would certainly reduce the capital cost of the power provision in a car.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2024/05/09/demand-electric-cars-dried-up-rethink/
    The interim solution today which serves the needs of the consumer is either the hybrid or electric vehicle with range extender (REX). I like the latter. Bear with me.

    The REX is a fully electric car. It is always electric. Let’s say it has a range of 300km. You can charge it in the normal manner. However, tucked away under the bonnet is a small engine and a generator. The engine powers the generator, when requested, which in turn charges the battery. The engine is not connected to the pedal, so is simple, efficient and reliable.

    The car has a modest fuel tank and in total the car has a range of, let’s say, 700km. You can charge it in the normal way, or you can fill up at a gas station. Why would you ever buy a fully electric car when you have this option of an electric vehicle with a range extender and complete absence of range anxiety?

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    1) have you ever thought about to start the production and delivery while you still have not reached the aim of one million pre-orders, but because of you are near to the aim and the pre-orders enter steadily or maybe increasingly?
    2) Are you still sure to start production and delivery this year? Could you mention the presumably month for the start?

    How I see Residential Application of eCat NGU Technology Proceeding

    1. At $2.50USD per Watt of provided electrical power, the eCat technology is expensive. It takes a long time (maybe years) to offset the initial cost in terms of grid electrical costs.

    2. There are safety concerns about supplying excess electrical power back to the electrical grid. We don’t want to injure grid technicians working on what they believe is an unpowered grid line.

    3. There are grid infrastructure concerns if too many residential sites provide their excess power to the electrical grid, without some type of control from the electrical grid so as to not overload the electrical grid.

    These said, I suggest that the sizing of the eCat NGU units should be based on the average (or alternatively the minimum) monthly use average for the residential home. If so implemented, the power from the electrical grid will be used when additional power is needed, such as with air-conditioning, or heating needs (furnace, oven, stove, water heater). This would significantly lower the grid consumption making more power available or reducing the need for additional power generation plants.

    It is likely that some residential battery storage could augment the residential eCat NGU units to take advantage of the daily variations in power consumption — the battery is discharged during the daytime peak loads and recharged during the nighttime periods of low electrical usage. There are commercial systems that exist and could be used for such an application.

    For other applications, such as Baseload commercial electrical generation, other logic will apply.

  • Maico

    dear DR. Rossi,

    I was very impressed by the response he gave to reader Gavino.

    The intelligent observation that was made to you gave you the opportunity to let us know a very important detail about your product. And precisely that the pre-assembled module assemblies that you will supply as a product (purely by way of example I would cite the 3kw module) already have the EMS (Ecat Management System) component inside them.

    That is, a component specifically designed to “balance” the consumption of the modules in the event of energy requests lower than the plate data of the assembly. This ensures that the “overall” life of the product remains very high, preventing some modules from remaining active longer than others.

    These advanced functions, at least as far as I know, are “economically sustainable” only for already industrialized solutions and therefore indirectly you are giving us evidence of the excellent state of development of your products (i.e. ready for marketing, as soon as it reaches one million of “verified” pre-orders).

    Did I interpret your response correctly?

    Regards Maico

    Good question.
    Yes, the Ecat system will have an EMS ( Ecat Management System ) , sort of an A.I. that balances the consume of the modules.

  • Gavino Mamia

    Dear Doctor Rossi
    I’m assuming that the Ecat has some sort of internal counter that will stop it once it reaches 100,000 hours.
    At home I have the limit of 3 KW which is enough for all my appliances.
    When I’m not at home the energy consumption is low, just the fridge and the router, this changes a lot when I return.
    Assuming I replace my 3KW electricity contract with an equivalent 3KW Ecat.
    From what I understand the counter also counts when you actually only use a few modules, so would it be better to have two Ecats, a small one for when I’m not at home and a larger one for when I return?
    Or have you already implemented an artificial intelligence that will make sure to use the “freshest” modules?
    I had already asked a similar question and you replied that you would work on this possibility.
    Good job to you and your entire team

    Dr Rossi,
    can you say where are located the facilities to manufacture even with outsourcing the Ecats ?
