    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Yet another application idea for the SKLep SSM:

    Alexa and similar personal communication devices.

    There have been over 100M Alexa units sold. Google claims 25% of the market share. The market is expected to reach $17.85 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 26%.

    The standby power consumption of an Alexa unit is less than 2 W. Max consumption can be up to 70W. Most of the time, the Alexa unit is in standby mode.

    A single SKLep SSM unit (10W) powers a battery within the Alexa unit. There is no AC power applied.

    2W run 24/7 for 11 years will require 192 kW-hrs of energy. Assuming $0.20USD per kiloWatt-hour means a cost savings of $38USD or about $3USD per year savings. Well worth the cost of the single SKLep SSM and a small battery addition to the Alexa.

    This integration would result in a truly GREEN device, requiring no external power consumption.

    Thoughts?

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    The 100,000 hours of hypothetical operation depend on:

    1) presumed wear of the electronic components?

    2) exhaustion of the fuel or of the mix of substances responsible for the implementation of the “Rossi Effect”?

    thanks if you can answer

    Regards

    Maico

    An important application for the Ecat-SKL SSM will be its use for desalination of seawater. Many nations around the world are experiencing increasing drought phenomena. Being able to use a virtually unlimited and low-cost energy source can certainly effectively contribute to solving this growing and potentially lethal problem for human life.

    The idea to stream the Ecat SKLep SSM instead of the grid-bound Ecat SKLep is a strong one, because whatever the power of the lamp, the COP is infinite.

    Dear Readers:
    In preparation of the live streaming of the Ecat SKLep SSM, the current streaming of the Ecat SKLep grid-bound will be suspended on March 12th, and will be substituted by the streaming of the Ecat SKLep SSM, maintaining the same address and the same links of before:

    I should add to Pekka Janhunen’s list of potential applicatiions:
    – small boats engines . with 2 kg of E-CAT and continuos 600 watt power many small crafts such as dinghies, kayaks, small trimarans could be easily mothorized with unlimited range
    – large boats engines – similar situation with heavier and more powerful engines

    You write, there are preorders for 1 MW plants. Is one of those counting for 10000 SKLeps?

  • Patrick

    Dear Andrea,

    We’re all looking forward to the start of the SSM live stream and can’t wait to find out what will be in the camera shot.

    1. Are you planning to also keep up the live stream of the non-SSM version?

    2. Or will you shut down the non-SSM live stream as obsolete?

    3. I recommend that for the SSM livestream you have two parallel and independent streaming systems constantly on because you cannot rely on one streaming system to be up 24/7, unlike the ecat 🙂 so you can have two different laptops using two different streaming systems, like one on youtube and one with another provider. It will be highly unlikely that both stop working at the same time, assuming you also have backup power for the laptops and cameras, and backup internet connections.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    HI, Dr Rossi
    One of my uses for SKLep ssm is to power some of lamps in home with 10 WATT | 12V DC LED LIGHT BULB | STANDARD E26/E27. This could of great interest to lamp manufactures.

    Blessings to you and your team.

    Thank you for your insight and suggestions,
    Warm Regards,

  • Dear Andrea,
    It seems to me that the specific power level (10 watts from 30 grams device) and other characteristics of the “SSM” (particularly the automatic start feature) make it suitable for mass marketing, as I understand you are planning to do.

    For curiosity, based on this specific power (330 W/kg) I made some rough calculations about the suitability for mobile applications:

    1) Electric car: Electric car with 30 kW/100 kg E-cat works in normal use, but does not allow cruising at high speed for long times on German autobahns. Increasing the number of E-cats is possible regarding mass, but would take rather large volume in the car. This seems a viable market, although some education of customers might be necessary for them to accept a sustained top speed limitation to ~130 km/h.

    2) Rotary wing drone: The 330 W/kg is insufficient for most drones, but models that have very long flight time (such as 55 minutes of DJI Matrice 300 RTI) should work by replacing the add-on batteries with E-cat modules. There would be new restrictions, however, regarding in what kind of weather conditions and altitude the drone can fly, so the drone application would not necessarily be a commercial success.

    3) Long-distance electric airliner: It is possible e.g. with 35% E-cat mass fraction and 5% of batteries for takeoff and a B777-like high lift-to-drag ratio of 20. As restrictions, the speed is 500-600 km/h and climbing to the 10 km cruise altitude takes ~20-30 min. This seems a niche market.

    Of course, the main initial market is fixed electricity production on ground, so the above is only a theoretical exercise.

    It seems to me that the autostart feature is a key benefit relative to previous models, because it lowers manufacturing cost and simplifies the manufacturing process while allowing flexibility in assemblage size.

    regards, /pekka

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Have you had any orders for your industrial container SKLep units?

    With the problems that China has with air pollution and their need for additional electrical power, I am surprised that they are not a significant source of application for the industrial containers. Are you willing to accept orders from China?

    The same question for Ukraine?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Germana:
    1- yes
    2- no, the Ecat SKLep SSM’s plus lamp setup weight is about 100 grams lighter than the gridbound one
    3- yes
    4- please see answer 2
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Germana

    Dr Rossi,
    Will the Ecat SKLep SSM substitute the Ecat SKLep gridbound in the same setup ?
    Will the weight be the same ?
    When the streaming of the Ecat SKLep SSM will start, will you show the weight ?
    Is the weight of the Ecat SSM minor, equal, or superior to the Ecat gridbound ?
    Thank you if you can answer and for your work,
    Cheers
    Germana

  • Andrea Rossi

    Claudio Varotto:
    1. I agree
    2. Is a good idea, but I suggest you to be assisted by an expert and certified contractor, also for safety issues.
    I also agree with the suggestion of Klas.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Klas

    Claudio Varotto:
    Another way could be to use micro-inverters e.g the APSystems QT2 ( as I will probably do)
    Here is then a proposal:
    Make in total 8 pcs of an assembly, model: SKLep-SSM-A-48V-480W .
    Each such assembly should consist of 4pcs in serial from another assembly made of 12 pcs of SSM-12V-10W PowerCell put in parallel.
    Now connect the 8 pcs of the 480W assembly to the 8 available inputs of 2pcs of the QT2 inverter.
    And voila, you now hopefully will produce 3,84 KWh/h. Perhaps close enough to you needs?

    Kind regards
    Klas

  • Claudio Varotto

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I wanted to make a clarification regarding my previous post of February 24th. I did not intend to put the two types of power supply ( photovoltaic and Sklep modules ) side by side at the same time.
    Let us assume 2 conditions:
    1) existence of a complete photovoltaic system with a hybrid inverter: when the panels are in production, these will be the ones feeding the inverter. When the panels stop producing electricity a device will automatically ( it is not difficult to build ) replace the photovoltaic source with your modules.
    2) installation of a production system without panels ( thus making use only of your modules as will be my case ) : the DC input of the hybrid inverter will receive only the voltage of your modules.
    In both cases, the inverter input will receive DC current in 24/7 mode, and it is therefore necessary to know in advance that the inverter will not generate error signals.
    I also specify that in order to use the DC input of the hybrid inverter validly, it will be necessary to raise the output voltage of the modules to a voltage range of about 90 to 450 volts.
    To do this I plan to use 40 Sklep modules in parallel for a total then of 4 Kw/h, carry out the conversion from 12 volts DC to 220 volts by means of a standard inverter, and then by means of rectifier bridges and high voltage capacitor leveling obtain about 320 volts DC which is the usable voltage with the hybrid inverters.
    You will probably ask why I do not connect the modules in series and get the high voltage directly: the reason is simply dictated by the fact that if one or more modules stop working, the smooth operation of the chain is interrupted.
    Parallel connection still allows the continuation of production even if with proportionally reduced amperage.
    I hope I have clearly expressed my point of view and in the hope that I have been helpful with my reflection to those who are anxiously waiting to see your project finally realized I address a warm greeting to all
    Claudio Varotto

  • Andrea Rossi

    Claudio Varotto:
    Now I am able to answer your question:
    To integrate the Ecat with a PV solar system it is necessary to separate the two systems by means of diodes that forbid to the lower voltage source to draw current from the higher Voltage source, like is normally done to connect two batteries in parallel.

    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Claudio Varotto:
    I want to add to my first answer that you put an issue and we are going to better know about it and resolve it: to send to the inverter of a solar system the DC 12 V current made by the Ecat at the same time.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Vincenzo Bonomo,

    Claudio Varotto:
    I am not able to answer; all I can say is that the DC output of an Ecat SKLep assembly can be turned into AC current with any standarD inverter.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Claudio Varotto

    Good morning Dr. Rossi, I would like to ask you a question to which I, despite requests sent to some inverter manufacturing companies, have not obtained any answer: during a phone call I had with the call center of a renowned Italian company, I was told that by continuously applying a DC voltage to the photovoltaic input of a hybrid inverter ( 24/7 ) as it would be in the case of using Sklep modules, the inverter itself, not detecting the cyclic and intermittent trend typical of photovoltaic applications, would report an error code and would block the production of electricity.
    I have reason to believe that the call center attendant’s response is incorrect but, as I said, since I have not received any response to my inquiries in this regard, I would like to kindly ask you if it is your understanding that a hybrid inverter ( not a traditional inverter ) can be used as described.
    A heartfelt thanks for your work and that of your team
    Warm greetings
    Claudio Varotto

    Caro Dr. Rossi ho accolto con gioia la decisione del prossimo avvio del live streaming dell’Ecat SKLep SSM. Purtuttavia non trovo decisiva questa scelta nel raggiungimento del milione di preordini prefissati dalla Leonardo perché di nessun impatto emotivo sulle masse di possibili utenti. Le leggi del marketing sono inflessibili e suggeriscono strategie differenti per questo obiettivo. In passato mi sono permesso di indicare una partecipazione alla 24 ore di Le Mans con una Tesla alimentata dai Suoi reattori ma ho percepito una Sua certa inclinazione nel procedere passo dopo passo senza intraprendere iniziative eclatanti. Magari potrebbe modificare un drone in commercio per battere i record di durata di volo oppure di quota raggiunta da mezzi di questo tipo in modo tale da colpire la fantasia delle persone e l’interesse dei mass media investendo pochi dollari e poco tempo.
    Cordiali saluti
