    Wlad, I would love you succeeded in explain the Rossi effect without having access to the complete experimental datasets, on the basis of theoretical deduction. I already know mrs. Pamela will reply this way:

    “Hi, Wlad, thanks for the suggestions. We have several experiments in line waiting to be realized. When we have time to test your suggestion I’ll warn you. Hug.”

    Good, since you frequent this JONP place you’ve made lots more friends

  4. Hi Andrea,

    Here is our ragtime-flavored Holiday greeting.

    The very best Christmas wishes for you:

  5. Dear Andrea Rossi,

    http://www.qnergy.com/products_overview

    I think this could be the right business partner to solve the problem of conversion of hot-cat heat into electricity. The company not only has the necessary technology, but also has sufficient production capacity for starters.

    Best regards and Merry Christmas to you, your family and your partners.

    ERRATA:

    In my comment of December 20th, 2014 at 5:11 AM

    where it is written:

    As after the reaction 60Ni-3Li7 the 60Ni transmutes to 62Ni, the isotope 62Ni requires excitation, so that the eCat continue producing heat.

    the correct is:

    As after the reaction 61Ni-3Li7 the 61Ni transmutes to 62Ni, the isotope 62Ni requires excitation, so that the eCat continue producing heat.

    Subject: Your version of Fleischmann-Pons experiment improved by using 105Pd
    Date: Sat, 20 Dec 2014 10:51:55 -0200

    Hi, Pamela

    I have strong reasons in believing that the alignment of the nuclear magnetic moment of the Pd nuclei toward an external magnetic field is responsible for the cold fusion occurrence in the Fleischman-Pons experiment (and of couse also in your version of their experiment. performed by you in the US Navy in 2009).

    Therefore only the stable isotope 105Pd contributes for the cold fusion occurrence in your experiment, since only 105Pd has non-null nuclear magnetic moment.
    All the other isotopes 102Pd, 104Pd, 106Pd, 108Pd, 110Pd, have null nuclear magnetic moment, and so they do not contribute for the cold fusion occurrence.

    I had proposed for the cold fusion researchers of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project to perform the following experiment, so that to test such hypothesis:

    ========================================================
    THE ALIGNMENT OF NUCLEI AS INDISPENSABLE PRE REQUISITE FOR THE COLD FUSION OCCURRENCE CAN BE TESTED BY EXPERIMENT, as follows:

    1- Fleischmann-Pons experiment will be performed in two different vessels A and B

    2- In both vessels will be used an external source of magnetic field, so that to eliminate the influence of the magnetic fields of the Earth and the Sun

    3 – Magnetic pulses cannot be used in any of the two vessels A and B, in order DO ONT EXCITE the nuclei in both experiments

    4- The vessel A will be filled with the isotope 105Pd and deuterium. As the nucleus 105Pd has nuclear magnetic moment, the 105 Pd nuclei will be aligned toward the vector magnetic field, and the cold fusion must occur .

    5- The vessel B will be filled with the isotopes 102Pd, 104Pd, 106Pd, 108Pd, 110Pd, and deuterium. As all those nuclei have null magnetic moment, and as they will not be excited (because there is not magnetic pulses applied), they cannot be aligned toward the vector magnetic field, and therefore COUD FUSION CANNOT OCCUR.
    ========================================================

    However, the researchers of the MFMP responded the following to me:

    “Given that Pure Pd is over $5833 100g, where do you propose one gets affordable 105Pd?

    If you are able to provide the raw materials, we may be able to conduct an experiment.”

    So, they have no money for performing the experiment.

    Then I would like to know:

    May you be interested to make it in the laboratory of the US Navy?

    Can you make it?

    If I am right, the heat produced by using 100% of 105Pd must be 5 times greater than in the experiment made by you in 2009.

    eCat full time in self sustained model

    Joe,
    I suspect that by using a fuel composed by 100% of 61Ni the eCat can work full time in the self-sustained-mode.

    The reason why the reactor filled with fuel composed by 58Ni, 60Ni, 61Ni, 62Ni, 64Ni, after some hours stops to work in the self-sustained-mode is because after some time the excited isotopes 58Ni, 60Ni, 62Ni, 64Ni begin to lose their excitation, and so the reactions Ni-3Li7 stop.

    Then there is need to apply magnetic pulses again in the coils of the reactor, in order to excite the isotopes 58Ni, 60Ni, 62Ni, 64Ni, and that’s why there is need to turn on again the electric power, supplying electric current to the coils of the reactor.

    However, the eCat filled with 100% of the isotope 61Ni will work in the self sustained model only while there is yet 61Ni isotopes available within the reactor.

    As after the reaction 60Ni-3Li7 the 60Ni transmutes to 62Ni, the isotope 62Ni requires excitation, so that the eCat continue producing heat.
    So, when the fuel composed by 60Ni is totally converted to 62Ni, there is need to apply again magnetic pulses, in order to excite the 62Ni.

    regards
    wlad

    As time passes the e cat gets closer and closer to a world marketed alternative energy source. There will come a time if it has not already accrued,when big oil will threaten or may even sabotage your efforts.The middle East may also try , as illustrated by North Korea’s treats and computer hacks towards Sony . Since a great deal is dependent on computer operation of the e cats when working in unison, have you and Industrial Heat made plans or possibly consulted with the US for such a contingency? It seems at this point it may be the only great treat to your tremendous success and saving this world from itself..

    It is an interesting idea: under a theoretical and technological point of view, I do not see why not. The issue is in the price: if the electric energy supplied by batteries will be competitive with other sources, the coupling between high efficiency batteries and the E-Cats will be surely possible. Have you an idea of the cost per kWh supplied by this new generation of batteries? I am curious.
    ———————————————-

    I think the eCat spends so much electric power because there is need to excite 98% of the Ni isotopes used as fuel in the eCat.

    The natural abundance of the stable Ni isotopes is the following:

    58Ni = 68,08%

    60Ni = 26,22%

    61Ni = 1,14%

    62Ni = 3,63%

    64Ni = 0,93%

    Only 61Ni has magnetic moment, and so it does not require excitation so that to be aligned by magnetic field along the azis of the reactor, in order to have fusion with 3Li7.

    All the other Ni isotopes have null magnetic moment, and all they require excitation so that to be aligned, in order to have fusion with 3Li7.

    By using a fuel composed by 100% of 61Ni the electric power could be reduced drastically, because there is no need to excite the 61Ni (the electric power for the excitation of the 98% of the other Ni isotopes would be saved).

    However, I do not know how much extra cost would be necessary to obtain a fuel composed of 100% of 61Ni.

    Dear Andrea,

    There is a great deal of research and development and investment going into battery technology worldwide. I think the trend will be for lower cost per kWh as time goes by.
    I am sure electric vehicles are going to become more and more popular as time goes by. Lack of charging stations for EVs are one obstacle to their widespread use. You should talk with Elon Musk of Tesla. I think together you might be able to work towards a solution!

    Thank you for this interesting information. As you can se, this is a price good for usual batteries utilization, but very high for us. Nevertheless, the use of batteries as storage of energy is very interesting. By the way: I tested a Tesla, is very funny: same acceleration of a Ferrari, but too short autonomy if you want to get driving fun.

    Dear Andrea,

    You asked about the cost per kWh supplied by the new generation of batteries. I have to thank an E-Cat World reader for finding this. According to the Tesla Motors Web site, they can currently deliver electricity from their lithium-ion batteries at 0.21 Euros per kWh.

    Wlad Guglinski dont you think to be important in order to decypher the cold fusion mystery?

    Wlad Guglinski The 105Pd natural abundance is 22, 23%. In the case my theory is correct, and MFMP decides to perform the experiment, there is need to take care, because in this version of the Fleischmann-Pons experiment the energy created by cold fusion will be 5 times greater

    .

    Comment by me here in JoNP:

    So, anyone who is trying to explain cold fusion thinks that there is need only of proposing the nuclear reactions, and the energy produced in each of the reactions.

    Nobody wishes to realize that there is need to understand the cold fusion mechanisms occurring in the phenomenon.

    It is like to want to understand how the planets are attracted by the Sun, without to know the existence of the gravitation.

    Alessandro,

    I recently purchased a Chevy Volt. It requires 12 Amps of 115VAC input power for 10 hours to completely charge the car’s batteries and this results in a range of about 30 miles. So a likewise continuous charge rate might yield a daily range of about 70 miles. This charging rate is equivalent to an electric output rate of 1.3 kW. Assuming typical Carnot efficiencies means a thermal generation of around 4kW. With a COP of 3, then I would guess a 10kW eCat could provide enough power for one vehicle with a daily range of 70 miles. A substantially larger eCat would be required for continuous long distance traveling. But this says the numbers are close. Getting rid of excess heat might be a problem but I suspect could be engineered to handle it.

  31. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I think it is more than just energy cost economics. The use of batteries to store energy is more applicable to temporal energy sources such as photovoltaic or wind sources – batteries would store electrical energy during the time when the energy source is not available. Not so with the eCat which, by its nature, can run continuously for months at a time. The eCat is best suited for Baseline (continuous) electrical generation. The only way I see electricity could be used to provide the input energy for eCat operation (besides control) is if the cost of electricity becomes so low as to be much cheaper than natural gas.

    To complete the idea of Paul, when the car is parking, it will be connected to the grid and upload energy.

  34. Paul

    Andrea,

    The quickest way to a legal e-cat powered car is to have a suitcase sized e-cat electrical generator (mini-turbine + Generator, Stirling engine + generator, or e-cat direct conversion) in your trunk, recharging the car’s batteries (while at the same time using the batteries to power the e-cat). Since, unlike the car, the e-cat would run 24/7 it could be lower power than the car engine.

    Frank and Andrea,

    I guess I am not seeing the advantage of high efficiency batteries when generating electricity. Andrea Rossi previously posted that part of the reason of going to gas-power eCats as opposed to self-powering them using produced electricity was the relatively low cost of natural gas compared to the price of generated electricity.

    Even if a high efficiency battery was 100% efficient, it would be no better than using electricity produced by an eCat system to feed-back the power as input to the eCat system. The previous argument on natural gas powered eCats was why consume a precious product such as electricity for heating the eCats when natural gas could do the job at a much cheaper cost per thermal unit. I fail to see why batteries would change this argument.

  40. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    It is an interesting idea: under a theoretical and technological point of view, I do not see why not. The issue is in the price: if the electric energy supplied by batteries will be competitive with other sources, the coupling between high efficiency batteries and the E-Cats will be surely possible.

    Dear Andrea,

    There is a lot of effort being expended these days into producing better batteries, and other energy storage devices that can be charged by ‘free’ fuels like solar and wind.

    For example, Tesla Motors’ gigafactory (currently under construction) which will manufacture batteries for electric cars is planned to be powered solely by a combination of solar, wind and geothermal.

    What are your thoughts on the possibility having battery driven E-Cats?

    Dear Ing. Rossi,

    Concerning the longevity of the fuel – have you tried vibrating the fuel contents during self-sustain mode to see what effect this vibration has on the reaction. For some reason I have this vision of it only being the surface atoms facing the Hydrogen that are reacting (due to the relatively small amount of powder charge actually consumed) and thought that vibrations may bring fresh material to the top. If the vibration does lengthen the overall output time of a single charge, in the 1MW reactor, single charges could be vibrated in sequence (say one individual charge per day) without decreasing the overall real-time output of the whole 1MW plant significantly whilst extending the charge longevity of all the individual e-cat units.

    Of course all this would depend on vibration making a beneficial difference to longevity of charge power output :¬)

    Just a rambling(and no doubt ignorant)thought; a little different from the usual questions you get these days though!

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For those of us who love to do independent analyses — Can you tell us the approximate mass of the fuel going into the 100+ reactors for the 1 MW thermal unit? Can we assume a 1 gram fuel mass per reactor?

  71. Robert Curto

    Dear Wladimir Guglinski,
    I read in some blogs you are complaining that Dr. Andrea Rossi has spammed your comments to sway the attention to the fact that you have discovered how the E-Cat works, you also have accused him of giving wrong information, to not allow anybody to explain how the E-Cat works !
    Excuse me, but all this is ridiculous. First of all Dr. Andrea Rossi has always
    said he does not want , or cannot talk about the mechanism that makes the
    Rossi Effect, so he swayed nothing, just said he cannot give this kind of information, secondly he repeatedly said that he does not agree with your theories and that they have nothing to do with the E-Cat, and also he has repeatedly said he adheres to the Standard Model.
    He always gently hosted your comments and published your articles, that all the other Magazines have always refused. He offered you unlimited space on his blog.
    Now he spams several comments of yours, and you insult him !
    I think that anyone with thinking faculty can understand that he spammed your comments because, as I read on the other blog, you have mixed up your theories and the E-Cat connected theory.
    With the E-Cat he probably wants not to involve your theories.
    I would like to hear from Dr. Andrea Rossi, if I have guessed correctly.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    For the 1 MW plant now in operation, can you tell us whether:

    1. Fuel has been added or removed since the plant began operation.

    2. If there has been no fuel added or removed, is there a time before the expiration of the one year operating period when fuel addition or removal is planned.

    3. Whether the quantity of fuel used has met or not met your expectations for fuel consumed.

    Thanks

    Bob

  73. Andrea Rossi

    Bob:
    One of the things we have to test is the duration of a charge under the stress of a 1 MW plant in a long period. We plan not to change the charge until we have a decrease of efficiency, to check which is its real duration under stress. Due information about this issue will be given at the end of the test, probably within one year. Good question.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Herb Gills:
    The issue is much more complex than you say; isotopic shifts are caused by reactions and themselves cause further reactions, about which, obviously, I cannot give information, as I wrote many times.
    The role of hydrogen is foundamental. All I meant is just that the main nuclear reactions are not necessarily fusion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  76. Herb Gillis

    Andrea Rossi:
    Since you believe the energy source in the Ecat is isotopic shifts, can you give us any guidance at all about the role the hydrogen plays? Do you think that at some point the hydrogen could be eliminated?
    Kind Regards;

    Dr Rossi:
    What do you suggest, regarding the LENR, to a university student of Phyisics? What would you suggest him to read?
    W.G.

  81. Andrea Rossi

    Curiosone:
    To a University student of Physics I suggest to let alone LENR and study Physics as his Professors teach the matter to him. What a student has to do is to learn as much as possible and as well as possible . Most University Prof of Physics are very good teachers; I have known many of them, even many that think LENR can’t work, and all of them have a very solid knowledge of Physics foundamentals. The period students spend in University is one of the foundamental pillars of their future, and they have not to play with this fact. First of all they have to learn, and to learn they have to study. I would say that to study at least 6 hours per day, plus the time of the lessons is a good rythm. This does not leave much time to make other things seriously. After they will have got the degree, at that point they can look for diversifications. Example: Picasso has been able to become the Picasso we usually refer to after learning to paint as a Raffaello in the Art Academy he attended; that’s how eventually he became Picasso.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Herb Gillis,

    If Flame temperature were the primary consideration, you might use Magnegas instead of Acetylene. You can also listen to this awful musical background. Perhaps the flame temperature of Magnegas is too high! (You could melt everything!!)

    Independent tests have established that MagneGas™ with a flame temperature of 5,819°C / 10,560°F (Verified by CCNY and the Institue of Ultraspectroscopy http://www.magnegas.com/docs/MG-Flame-report.pdf) is the fastest, most precise and most energy efficient cutting fuel available today.

    Joe,
    I think I finally discovered how occurs the capture of the pair electron-positron by the proton when it is accelerated toward the Ni nucleus in the Rossi-Effect.

    The mechanism is caused by a combination between the disturbance in the helical trajectory of the proton and a shrinkage-dilation in the orbit of the electron 2s1.

    It happens as shown in the Figure bellow:
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Shrinkage_of_the_electron%27s_orbit_in_the_Ni-3Li7.png

    FIG. 1:
    Before the Ni and 3Li7 are coupled along the z-axis, the orbit of the 2s1 electron has a small radius, because the orbit is situated in the 3Li7.

    FIG. 2:
    When Ni and 3Li7 are coupled, the orbit of the 2s1 is shared by the two electrospheres of Ni and 3Li7. As the electrosphere of Ni is larger, the orbit of 2s1 has a dilation.

    FIG. 3:
    The orbit 2s1 begins to attract the proton, and the proton begins to attract the orbit 2s1, and therefore the proton is pulling the orbit toward the 3Li7 nucleus.
    At the same time, the component Ft begins to cause a shrinkage in the orbit 2s1:
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Acceleration_on_the_proton_by_electron_orbit_in_Rossi-Effect.png
    Therefore the orbit 2s1 has displacement toward the 3Li7 nucleus, while the orbit also experiences a shrinkage.

    FIG. 4:
    The orbit 2s1 continues to have shrinkage, and a displacement along the 3Li7 nucleus. The shrinkage and the displacement occur discretely (proportional to multiples of Planck’s constant)

    FIG. 5:
    Finally, the proton crosses the plane of the orbit 2s1.
    Well, then now the proton is pulling the orbit 2s1 toward the Ni nucleus.
    So immediately the orbit 2s1 experiences a large displacement going to take its initial position, like it had earlier in the FIG. 2, and therefore the orbit experiences a very big dilation.
    The large dilation of the orbit 2s1 captures a pair positron-electron from the aether, the proton captures the electron, and the positron is emitted.

    The phenomenon occurs similarly as happens in the atom, when the electron jumps from an energy level to another one. When the elecron jumps, the atom captures a pair “particle-antiparticle” from the aether (the photon), and the atom emits the photon.

    wlad

    Wladimir,

    You write,
    “And when the proton crosses this point where Ft = Fz, the force Ft becomes stronger, and finally the proton decays in a neutron.”

    Must beta+ decay occur exactly at the point in space where Ft = Fz? If so, why? If not, does this mean that Ft = Fz is just a rough estimate?
    ————————————————-

    Joe,
    actually it is more complex than shown in the figure.
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Acceleration_on_the_proton_by_electron_orbit_in_Rossi-Effect.png

    Because that situation shown in the figure occurs when the proton and the electon are in phase (both them are in the right side regarding the center of the helical trajectory).
    In this case Ft tries to increase the radius of the proton’s helical trajectory.

    But as the proton has acceleration, it means that the proton and the electron are not always in phase.

    When the proton and the electron are out of phase (the proton at right, and the eletron at left side of the center of the helical trajectory).
    In this case Ft tries to shrinkage the radius of the proton’s helical trajectory.

    So,
    as the proton progresses in its motion, actually the radius of the helical trajectory experiences a very fast dilation-shrinkage.

    When the proton hits the plane of the orbit, Fz= 0, and Ft is maximum. And therefore the maximum dilation-shrinkage in the radius of the helical trajectory occurs when the proton is crossing the plane of the orbit.

    I dont know where is the point where the proton captures the pair electron-positron. But probable it is when the proton hits the plane of the electron’s orbit, because it is the point where occurs the maximum dilation-shrinkage of the cross-section of the proton’s orbit around the center of its helical trajectory.

    Joe,
    also note that, as the proton progresses in its motion toward the plane of the orbit, we have:

    1- The component Ft increases

    2- The component Ft is maximum when the proton hits the plane of the electron’s orbit

    It means that while the proton is moving, the radius of the electron’s orbit also is submitted to a shrinkage.
    So, it is reasonable to suppose that the radius of the electron’s orbit experiencies discrete contractions (discrete shrinkages in the radius, multiples of the Planck’s constant).
    The components Fz and Fm contribute for the shrinkage of the radius of the electron’s orbit.

    But when the proton crosses the plane of the orbit, the components Fz and Fm change their action, and now they contribute for the expansion of the radius of the electron’s orbit.

    Therefore, when the proton crosses the plane, the radius of the electron’s orbit can experience a big expansion (multiple of the Planck’s constant), and such expansion on the surface of the electron’s orbit is responsible for extracting the pair electron-positron from the aether (a similar phenomenon as occurs in the atom, when the electron emits photons extracting them from the aether because the electron changed its orbit from one energy level to another in the electrosphere of the atom).

    wlad

    I forgot to answer to the question 4 of the Frank Acland’s comment, sorry: I answer in seconds while working…
    Answer: as you have read on the Report of the ITP after the Lugano test, energy comes substantially from isotopical shifts, which is not a fusion, at least for what concerns the final results.

    Felix, OMG that’s an amazing, professional elaboration. It is a long time I would propose to Nikolova a movie script of The New Fire, but lacked an actor and director up to the task. I have to say that the face measures do match very well, but the most interesting fact is the matching during the face animated movements, where the mind of the observers automatically fills and compensates the less than perfect details. You could make a great service to art, to the comprension of the head of the inventor and, ultimately, to the comprension of the inner reactor and science itself, if you posted the video elaborated in such a way to hide the left side with a black matter or something. We cannot elaborate on the E-cat features, because they are not disclosed, so we are forced to twiddle with its inventor’s features. I think we’re into something big here.

    1. That the 1 MW plant operates with no external drive input for 3/4 of the operation (self sustain mode)
    2. That Industrial Heat will sell heat (not plants)
    3. That you have discussed the E-Cat with the CEO of Volvo
    4. That the E-Cat reaction is not necessarily fusion
    5. Massive sales will begin once the first 1 MW plant is verified consolidated

    Joe,
    I think that the proton transmute to neutron in a fraction of second after crossing the plane of the orbit of the elecron, because:

    1- Beyond the Coulomb force Fz acting in the helical trajectory shown in the figure, there is also a magnetic force Fm due to the attraction between the magnetic field of the proton and the magnetic field of the electron’s orbit.
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Acceleration_on_the_proton_by_electron_orbit_in_Rossi-Effect.png

    2- Therefore the compoment accelerating the proton is Fz + Fm.

    3- The component Ft trying to increse the radius of the helical trajectory is never stronger than Fz + Fm before the proton to hit the plane of the orbit.

    4- In the instant when the proton crosses the plane of the orbit Ft is maximum, and Fz= 0.

    5- When the proton crosses the plane, Fz and Fm change their direction, and so the force trying to increase the radius of the helical trajectory is Fz + Fm + Ft. In this instant the proton captures a pair positron-electron from the aether, and it becomes a neutron emitting a positron.
