    I ordered the Ecat from a person that says he is authorizad from you to collect preorders: what do you suggest me to do ?

  • Daniel Hawk Hicks

    I imagine that one would be able to configure the devices to the power requirements of the Kiln. DC could be used, yes?

    To JONP readers,

    An Easy Way to use NGU 100W units for Grid Power at a Residential Location.

    EnPhase has been used in solar panel applications to safely convert the DC power from solar panels into useful Grid power by using micro-inverters, such as the EnPhase IQ7A and IQ8A series. Each micro-inverter is fed grid power (e.g., 240VAC) and it “pushes” the converter solar DC energy back into the Grid in-phase with the Grid power.
    In solar panel usage, there is one micro-inverter for each solar panel. A number of micro-inverters may be paralleled, (usually 10 or more) onto a single Grid line.

    Typical power output of one micro-inverter is over 300W, although the output power decreases as the solar panel output power decreases. The solar panel outputs a voltage in the 30VDC to 50VDC regime with lower voltages as clouds or lowering light conditions occur. The micro-inverters usually have a startup voltage level of about 30 VDC.

    Consider using three NGU 100W units to provide DC power to a micro-inverter. If the three NGU 100W units are tied in series, they will produce 36VDC at 300W of power. This is sufficient to activate a micro-inverter and the micro-inverter will produce about 290W of Grid power, when Grid power is applied to them.

    In the US, most wood framed residential homes have vertical studs on a 16” center. The micro-inverter has an attachment plate with slotted holes. The micro-inverter could easily be positioned on one of the studs and screwed to the stud to physically secure it.

    The micro-inverter has two connectors: one for the incoming DC power; and the other connector is where Grid power is applied and produced power flows back into the Grid. There is also a status LED what shows operation, faults, etc.

    Consider a 5” by 18” by 1/16” aluminum panel mounted above the micro-inverter. The panel would be used to support the three NGU 100W units. Also, on the panel would be an 8-position terminal board which would be used to receive the output of each NGU 100W unit and connect them serially. I would also include a digital voltmeter to present the voltage level of 36VDC coming from the three NGU 100W units tied serially. I would also include a rocker switch to manually turn off or on the panel. In addition, I would place a strain relief clamp to secure the DC output going to the input of the micro-inverter.

    There are commercially available Grid power cables for the micro-inverters available from the solar panel suppliers. A cable can be ordered with N number of micro-inverter connectors, where N is the number of micro-inverters that are used on a single AC line, terminating at a circuit breaker, usually a 240VAC, 20Amp breaker.

    The panel would be easy to fabricate (drilling holes). I would use inserts for the wood studs and thumbscrews to attach the panel to the two studs.

    I would also tie the power grounds from the Grid to both the panel and to the micro-inverter for safety reasons.

    When Grid power fails, the micro-inverter automatically stops providing power to the Grid. This is for the safety of Grid personnel.

    Hi Andrea.
    I think that it would be unwise to site any NGU device on the outside of a spacecraft travelling to the Moon or Mars and expecting it to function correctly without adequate protection from the very harsh environment of the vacuum of space.

    Although you have no actual experience with the NGU in space- related things, does your very considerable experimentation, and theoretical investigations, lead you to suspect that an NGU connected properly to a suitable load in your lab and working to design might not function as required if it found itself magically transported and sited within a spacecraft cabin with identical environmental conditions as the lab while travelling to the Moon or Mars?

    I am really musing on the possibility that in the above scenario the NGU might not be able to function correctly, or at all, if it were likely to be adversely affected by large gravity field strength changes such as zero g in transit or 1/10 g on the Moon or 1/3 g on Mars when compared with 1g on Earth. An exotic idea,I know, but life at atomic level seems very strange to me, so why not consider this strange notion?

    I really hope that someday soon we will see NGU devices as part of interplanetary travel, providing electrical power when solar cells cannot provide enough energy, and removing the necessity for nuclear devices as well.

    I look forward to a successful EV demonstration in a few months time. Good luck with your strenuous efforts.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, according to the question of Mr. Hawk and your answer – and because at your website there is a picture of a ready(?) 3KW ecat ngu:
    There are many cheap 2KW electric heater, please plug one to your ecat and show how it works in a short video.
    Maybe it is more important for many people, than an EV test.
    Best regards

    Daniel Hawk Hicks:
    The Ecat NGU produces electric energy; with electric energy it is possible to do anything that can be powered with it; controllable heat can be made by a controllable electric heater,

  • Daniel Hawk Hicks

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Could this technology be configured to produce controllable heat directly for a ceramic kiln?

    May God continue to bless you and your team in your work for all humanity.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    “Worldwide, more than 80 million people live at least 8,202 feet (2,500 meters) above sea level, mainly in South America, Central Asia and East Africa.

    Some of the highest permanent settlements include Wenquan in China’s Qinghai province, at a staggering 15,980 feet (4,870 m) above sea level, and Korzok in India, around 15,000 feet (4,572 m) above sea level.

    However, one place towers above them all. Nestled in the Peruvian Andes is a town that is nicknamed “Devil’s Paradise.” Officially named La Rinconada, its 50,000 inhabitants live between 16,404 feet (5,000 m) and 17,388 feet (5,300 m) above sea level, making it the highest permanent settlement on Earth.”

  • 5. 10 m / 33 ft below sea level

    This part might use some clarification. If one goes to the lowest point on Earth in the Dead Sea (~400m below sea level) it shouldn’t affect things too much. Day to day fluctuations in barometric pressure may be somewhat comparable with respect to that change in elevation.

    Perhaps you mean operating in underwater environments where pressure increase much more rapidly?

  • Steven Nicholes Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If you are planning to use NGU technology with solar panels, you may need to cool the NGU units or change their specified temperature range.

    “If you’re thinking of installing solar panels, it’s important to know the temperature range that they’ll work in. Solar panels generally have an operating temperature range of – 40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.”

    “In extremely low-lying areas, especially along the Persian Gulf (near sea level), summer temperatures can reach 48 °C (118 °F). Average low temperatures in summer are typically over 20 °C (68 °F) and in the south can sometimes exceed 30 °C (86 °F). Record high temperatures above 50 °C (122 °F) have been reached in many areas of the desert, partly because its overall elevation is relatively low.”

  • Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for the information: we’ll make tests finalized to test also this issue,

    Dear Doctor Rossi
    There are millions of Caravans and Camper in the world and they are constantly increasing. I’m thinking about it for when I retire and have a lot of time to travel.
    The main problem, due to poor insulation, is thermal shock.
    Gas or diesel heaters, or generators for air conditioning and other utilities are used.
    All this costs, consumes, makes noise, is dangerous.
    A few photovoltaic panels on the roof are not enough.
    Your Ecat, 1 KW and above, would be a godsend.
    Personally, before buying a camper I will wait for the Ecat to arrive on the market.
    Am I doing well?
    Good job and hurry up.

  • Giulia

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Thank you for your dedication to the Ecat and its importance for our Planet; at your age you could retire and enjoy your life, but you never give up your endeavors to deliver the Ecat NGU.

    No, it is not; the Ecat NGU needs a complex system of capacities and A.I. to interface with the BMS of the car manufacturer, that is designed to forbid external connections. This has been the most difficult obstacle to our Team,

    I understood that you said here that the test with the EV powered by the Ecat will be made with the Ecat directly connected with the battery of the EV: is this correct ?

    Dr Rossi,
    I followed the answer you gave to Frank Acland on May 15 about the paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    Reading the Nelson patent and the paragraphs you referred to I think I understood how the Ecat works. Basically Ecat SKLep and Ecat NGU are the same thing, correct ?
    Thank you for the work of you and your team,
    Josè
