    Dear Andrea,

    1.Is the Jet Engine now in R&D having similar grounding challenges as the ECat SKLep?
    2.If not, is it because the Jet Engine depends on heat generated from the ECat SK?
    Thank you,
    Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,
    Many times you have stated that the use of your device must be accomplished by integrating them with the worlds present power sources. Is this why you insist on a method of connecting to them requiring a ground connection to the grid?
    Connecting regards.

    Angelo V.:
    I think so, but didn’t test this configuration yet: I think it also depends on the kind of genset,

  • Angelo V.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    could the SKLep be used to multiply the maximum power available in an isolated place not reached by the electricity grid, but equipped with a electric generator?

    Did you have tested this configuration?

    In this case you can confirm what stated on ecat.com
    “Any number of units can be connected to achieve desired voltage and power.”

    Best regards
    Angelo

    Dear Dr. Rossi, will this installation work:

    Full loaded Car-battery 12V, 225Ah plus grounding with a
    copper- grid (placed IN the earth) ?

    Dr Rossi,

    A thought– When, or if, you do an Ecat Mini-SKLep video, it might be worth considering the use of a “visually functioning” load instead of a resistive load. I realize that resistive loads are ideal for lab setups, however they lack the immediate visual communication of seeing “useful work” happening.

    For example, 12v 10w automotive loads, such as lights (LED, incandescent or halogen), motors or fans. Or 120v inverter to a 10w table lamp. Or something else that might represent a typical end-user Mini-SKLep application.

    Those are just initial thoughts, I’m sure there are better ones out there.

    Best Wishes,
    WaltC

  • eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    In the thousands of system tests and development occasions you have performed, have you encountered spontaneous combustions(melt downs)? If so can you tell us how many and under what conditions? There were a few reported by other investigators in the past.
    Explosive regards.

    Hello Andrea,

    Will you design the smaller modules to connect to one another with magnetic method, as you proposed when you originally designed the smaller modules?

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    as a complement zu Mr. Milan’s question of “..in a way that if all devices need less than 1kW I don’t pull power from the grid and if my devices need more than 1kW the difference is pulled from the grid?”
    You answered it should be possible etc

    Do you think it would be possible to do this without a battery?
    That would be awesome!It would mean that i can spend the 5000 Euro instead for a battery for ecats. And i could everywhere i need heating connect simply an electric radiotor to the mains. No oil, no gas, no expensive heat pump.
    Best regards

    Should be possible, but this installation must be made by a certified contractor specialized in the matter,

  • Milan

    Should it typically be possible to connect 10 SKLeps to the wiring of my house, in a way that if all devices need less than 1kW I don’t pull power from the grid and if my devices need more than 1kW the difference is pulled from the grid?
    Is there any limitation now on what kind of device can be powered from an SKLep?

    Let us close the ground issue: we need to be connected to the ground.
    Period.
    Particular cases will be addressed at the delivery.
    I am not going to give further information about this issue.
    Sorry for that.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    1. Is the requirement to connect the SKLep to a ground there because you are using a Faraday Shield or similar shielding to either keep electromagnetic signals from interfering with the SKLep energy extraction process or to keep SKLep generated electromagnetic radiation from leaving the SKLep?
    2. Have you tried using Mu metal shielding for shielding regarding magnetic fields? If so, results?

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    If the MiniSKLeps can be combined to achieve any power level, have you thought about designing them so they just plug into one another, rather than requiring connection by wires?

    Best regards,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    Is it correct to think that the AC (220-110V) / DC (12V) converter that you will supply to power the MiniSKLep / SKLep will have a 3-wire connection to the grid?
    Do you confirm that if I were to use an AC / DC converter with a 2-wire connection to the grid, the MiniSKlep / SKLep would not work?

    Regards

    Concept for LeMans Electric Racecar

    LeMans is a 24-hour race. The average speed is 128 mph or 207 km/hr.

    Highest speed is about 250 mph.

    Tesla is planning to release an upgraded version of its roadster in late 2023. It features 4-wheel drive, a maximum speed of 280 mph, and a range of 750 miles. It has a 200 kW-hr battery capacity.

    This yields an energy consumption rate of 200 kW-hr/ 750 miles or 266 W-hr/mi.

    Assuming an average speed of 130 mph means the average power will be 34.7 kW. A design of 50 kW output should suffice for the race.

    A Tesla battery pack size is nominally 267 cm x 154 cm x 30 cm. If we assume 1/2 of the battery pack volume could be replaced with a number of 100 W Ecat SKLep units, this would leave about 100 kW-hrs of battery capacity for peak power demands and for regenerative braking. (The remaining 100 kW-hr capacity would be 50% filled for peak power needs and capacity for regenerative breaking.)

    To provide 50 kW of electrical power, we would need 500 100 W SLKep units.

    Assume a 2-layer arrangement with a 17 x 15 matrix of 100 W SKLep units. Each SKLep is 7 cm x 7 cm x 9 cm. So, the minimum matrix dimensions would be 119 cm x 105 cm x 18 cm. This would need to be placed into an allocated volume of 133 cm x 154 cm x 30 cm. So, it looks to be possible to fit all the required 100W SKLeps into a suitable battery system space.

    With such a vehicle, the only needs for pit stops are for driver change and for tire replacements. Regenerative braking should reduce brake heating.

    Dear readers of the JONP,
    I think it is time to admit that the history of the LENR and the derivate forms of energy (included the Zero Point Energy) must be divided in two main periods: before Andrea Rossi and after Andrea Rossi. Before Dr Rossi the LENR had been substantially abandoned, although still conserved by a restrict group of “aficionados”; after Andrea Rossi these energies arrived to the point that the Governments of the USA and of Europe are financing the R&D upon a technology substantially derived from the patent of Dr Rossi. The epiphany of this fact (because it is a fact) is the report made by the Department of Defense of the USA here:
    https://HDIAC.org/technical-inquiries/notable/concepts-behind-e-cat-sk/
    With respect to all,
    SMG

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You wrote that you were working on the ‘miniatuarization of the modules’ – is this the MiniSKLep, or something different? If so, what do you mean?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Obviously, a 1kW output SKLep function could be replaced by 10 100W output SKLeps or even 100 10W output miniSKLeps. In general, it is better to have fewer units than more to reduce the number of components (e.g., power supply, fault detection, communications and control) that would be common to both designs. Typically, more, smaller units take up more space, and, because there are more units, individual component failures are more likely, and system level maintenance costs will increase.

    If and when you apply the SKLep technology to equipping an electrical power generation plant of 1 GW output capacity, would you really implement such a system by using 100 million 10W miniSKLeps or 10 million 100W SKLeps? The wiring and communications requirements would become exceeding difficult.

    I know you will develop specific components to meet a user’s overall system requirements.

    I envision that you will produce an integrated family of devices of various output sizes and physical dimensions.

    So, are you still working on a 1kW (or larger) SKLep unit?

  • Martin

    Dear Andrea

    For SKLep 10W : 0 Wh/h. and Energy Cost: $25 per MWh.
    1. If i connect 5 SKLep 10W.: Is then the Energy Cost 5 times more = $125 ? or still $25 per MWh.

    For SKLep 100W : 1 Wh/h.
    2. What is the Energy Cost per MWh. for the 100W. ?
    3. If i connect 10 SKLep 100W. Is the Energy Cost than X10 ??

    Thanks for answer.
    Kind regards
    Martin

  • Urs

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    like you have an already assembled ecat skl plant which can customers pre-order, you should also offer already assembled units with 1 KW, 2.5KW and other sizes. At customers wish installed in a portable box.
    Not everyone is an electrician and therefore it is better to have the possibility to order it ready for plug-in. And of course the matching box with connections/ports for this purpose.
    Best regards
    Urs
