    Dr Rossi,
    Do you think that the application of a capacitance could help the coupling between the Ecat and the battery of an EV ?

    Thank you for your suggestion,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Yet another eCat application – electric Golf Carts.

    Facts:
    “Today, there are more than 2 million carts in the country. They can be found on golf courses, resort towns, and even on the streets of major cities.

    An electric cart’s range is typically 15 to 25 miles, depending on the type of battery. With a 4 to 6 gallon fuel tank, you might average 100 to 180 miles with a gas cart.

    Gas carts tend to have more power, with their internal combustion engine (ICE) motors averaging 10 (7.5 kW) to 12 (8.9 kW) horsepower. Electric carts typically have 3 (2.2 kW) to 5 (3.7 kW) horsepower motors.

    To answer how long do electric golf carts take to charge, the answer is 7-14 hours for a completely drained battery and between 2-7 hours for a partially drained battery.

    An electric cart’s range is typically 15 to 25 miles, depending on the type of battery. With a 4 to 6 gallon fuel tank, you might average 100 to 180 miles with a gas cart.”

    So, if the NGU can truly accommodate inductive loads, an all-electric golf cart that is not range limited, never needs charging, and has much more power than other electric golf carts, then using NGU technology might be appropriate.

    Thoughts?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    There is a simplification to the New York City charging proposal I previously posted.

    The requirement is for a total of about 8 kW-hrs of energy to be provided each day to the Tesla Electric Vehicle (EV). The Tesla is charged using a Tesla Mobile Connector. The Tesla Mobile Connector can accept a smart adapter cable which is selected for the input AC voltage and input AC current draw.

    I suggest Tesla design and use a new smart adapter designed to accept 120VAC at a power of 400W.

    If this can be done, then 4 or 5 eCat 100W units could be employed to drive a commercially available DC-to-AC inverter that would produce 120VAC at 400W. This would provide power to the Smart Adapter.

    Steve
