    Dear Andrea,

    A close friend of mine is dying of cancer this month, at age 67. He quoted to me the verse found at Luke 12:20. His exact worlds were “I have more money than time.” I am worried about you. Is it better to give your work as a gift to the world, or to take it to the grave with you? Tesla took his work to the grave. Will you continue to wait, refine, R&D, and partner, until the day you die? They will burn your papers at your funeral, and toast their success.

    The wealthy rulers of this world have put a cork in the bottle of your genie, and thrown it out to sea.

    Can you explain to me why I am wrong to feel this way?

    Regrets,

    Tom

  16. Bernie Koppenhofer

    Dr. Rossi: Below find an email exchange with Frankie Fruge President of Cyclone Power asking if they are interested in mating their Cyclone engines with your E-Cat. She responded saying she contacted you and you did not respond. She apparently thinks it is a good idea. Is there a reason you do not want to pursue this obvious benefit for both companies?

    Dear Bernie,

    Yes it is and I have contacted them in the past as we are the only real game in town to use this. They have not responded. I told them to bring it here and we will run the Cyclone engine on it.

    People are more interested in advertising and getting money. We went down the wrong trail with the public company that has cost us 60% of all of our income and the rest on product, no advertising and no real money.

    I am in the process of trying to change that as we need those two things to get the product into production.

    In due time I contacted them, but I remember that they were in an R&D phase.
    I visited now, thanks to your comment, the website whose link you sent me, but my impression is still the same. Maybe I am wrong.
    If they have a proposal for something ready to test, we are curious to see.

  20. Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea
    Waiting for the October ‘demonstration’ (do you have a date?) I was thinking on how can be a huge E-Cat based Power Plant.
    Lets imagine that you are ready for the industrialization and someone ask you for a 1GW Electrical output Plant; based on your actual knowledge how you imagine it will be structured.
    Will it be a huge concentration of Quarks that generates heat and 1-3 big turbines, or maybe an array of many 1MW plant, or something different.
    Best Regards, Giuseppe

  21. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    I think to assemblies of 1 MW plants.

  22. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    That YouTube on using solar photovoltaics to pump water uphill into a large holding area and then using it as a hydroelectric plant to generate electricity – what a truly great idea. Substitute an eCat to continuously provide power to pump the water to a large area when the demand is low and they supplement the electrical power during the peak load times. You might ask your applications team to run an analysis to see if it makes economic sense. Probably not if you are in an area where land is expensive.

  23. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Interesting.
    Warm Regards,

  24. Drew G.

    Dr. Rossi:

    In the first release of information about the ECAT=Qx, you showed the optical emission from the device (in low resolution). In the upcoming October demonstration, will you demonstrate optical emission as well as making optical measurements of the spectra, wavelengths, output power, emission patterns etc. Good luck on the demonstration and future industrialization.

  25. Andrea Rossi

    Drew G.,
    We’ll see.

    For another example see:

    Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, using pumped hydro, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU). It can go from zero to full power in about one minute. Dr Stocks said.

    Andrea,

    I respect your opinions greatly, but you and others are very mistaken about the current cost of solar generation. The current cost of unsubsidized solar generation is between 35 and 55 dollars per MWh. Please see this article for further information regarding the current cost of just about all types of energy generation modalities.

    Please have a look at this article. “https://cleantechnica.com/2017/05/24/tucson-utility-inks-deal-solar-power-costs-less-3-cents-per-kilowatt-hour/”

  41. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea.
    Steven N. Karels is correct in pointing that solar energy is totally dependent of a storage facility.
    The price of the storing devices must be added to cost of the sun collectors.
    Solar energy may be used as a supply to a coal fired plant, which is almost impossible to regulate as the sun shifts trough a day and even day/night. The sun-plant must then be able to cover the costs of the high idle charge of the coal-plant.
    A gas fired plant is far easier to regulate, but the cost of having such a plant ready without production must be covered by the solar plant since this is dependent of the gas fire for supply in nights and days with a low solar intensity, and not vice versa.
    How nuclear power plants functions in cooperation with solar plants is not a part of my knowledge.

    Solar energy functions best in cooperation with hydropower, as this is quick and easy to regulate and there are a “build in” function of power-storage in the dam. To save water in dry periods with lots of sunshine is a benefit for owners of a hydropower works. (A surpluss of solar energy may also be used to pump back water to the dam.)
    To calculate the actual price of solar energy is not an easy target.
    For a E-cat powered plant calculation will be far easier when the details of performance and the price of the E-cats are available and sigma 5 dependability is achieved.

  45. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    The worship of solar energy, windmills, and the irrational fear of carbon have become a religion and a powerful political force. Members of this new religion make false posts all over the Internet about how cheap solar and wind power are, yet they all still insist solar and wind must be mandated and subsidized. Obviously, if they were telling the truth about the low cost and efficiency of wind and solar projects, you would not have to force and bribe anyone to buy them. They have no respect for free markets and free choice.

    A great mental antidote to this new false religion is to watch “THE GLOBAL WARMING FAD – Paleoclimatologist Bob Carter: Climate Context As A Basis For Better Policy” on YouTube. The professor is truly brilliant and quite funny as well.

    Christopher Calder:
    I worked since when I was 20 years old to when I was 40 years old in the field of the BACT ( Best Available Control Technologies) to make sustainable the emissons from the combustion of polluting fuels, among which coal. As a consequence of this experience I assure you that, with proper technologies, coal can be burnt in a sustainable way. On the contrary, so far the gurus of the solar stuff have still to give evidence of the fact that the solar-religion-sustained apparatuses are able to compete in the field of energy production without the funding coming from the bills paid to the taxpayers.
    The MWh produced with thermoelectric generators fueled by coal supplied by BACT anti-pollution plants costs 35-50 $.
    The MWh produced with solar devices costs between 300 and 400 $ (the energy produced by solar apparatuses is a small fraction of their power, because the sun shines only a small portion of a day, as an average, on this planet) and the difference is paid by the taxpayer ( look carefully at your bills ).
    This is the fact and the hypocrisy that makes the halo around the solar myth is destroying jobs. I have nothing to earn to write this, but I can’t stand persons that try to destroy honest people only because the “destroyers” are not able to compete on a fair ground.

  48. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The use of solar technology to generate electricity is viable as only a member of an integrated approach. Obviously, solar does not work at night. So energy storage during the daylight hours for later use to provide electricity during the evening hours would be required if solar were to be used for Baseload (continuous) purposes. Some techniques propose to use molten salts (heated by solar power during the day and tapped that heat during the evening) but there are many inefficiencies involved (turn solar electricity to heat tp warm the molten salts, cooling losses, then the Carnot cycle to generate steam and then to produce electricity). A solar-only approach is not compatible with our current electrical society.

    Ecat Technology (if it is real and can be economically implemented) suggests Baseload operation – 24 x 7 operation for a year, continuous output level power. The energy solution requires an integrated approach. Solar could drop to near $0 per MWhr and Solar would still be so limited.

    Australia is a great place to produce solar electricity — lots of unused land, desert, with an abundance of sunlight (insolation). They could become the solar electricity source for the world if there was a way to transport the electrical power to other places. But they are 1/2 a world away from the US and Europe. So their day time is our night time. If economical and environmentally safe electrical power transmission technologies were developed, then a world wide solar-based electrical system might be feasible. But, as of now, it is for sci-fi writers only to dream of. But there would be transmission losses and likely environmental impacts.

    Dear Andrea,
    With respect, may I recommend you review your knowledge about solar and government subsidy. This is now falling a lot and in fact the fossil fuel power generation industry is the one heavily subsidised.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    Quote from http://www.solarcitizens.org.au/myths


    MYTH: Renewable energy can’t compete economically with burning coal for power.

    FACT: The fossil fuel industry is heavily subsidised.

    The energy market in Australia is not a level playing field. The fossil fuel-based electricity system we have today is built on government subsidies, and fossil fuels continue to enjoy government assistance. For example, the Tamberlin Inquiry in NSW revealed that the government-owned Cobbora coal mine sold coal to power stations ‘at cost price’ (roughly 30 per cent of the price paid by other generators on the open market), which meant that: ‘…State-owned generators and gentraders [had] access to coal at a lower price than would have been available to them had they had to source such coal through a tender process.’

    This amounts to a subsidy of around $4 billion over the life of the contracts, and it is just one example of where taxpayers are footing the bill.

    On top of that, fossil fuels have been subsidised by not having to pay for the greenhouse gases they produce, and for the other health and environmental impacts they cause.

    Analysis published in the American Economic Review calculated that the economic damage caused by air pollutants from coal burning (in terms of health impacts and local pollution) exceeds the value of the electricity produced.”

    Dear Andrea,

    I know you have been seeking for 5 sigma for many months now, and I hope you are able to achieve this goal. It is clearly very important to you; however, I am still a bit unclear about what the significance of 5 sigma is — can you explain what the benefit will be to you if you finally reach the point of 5 sigma.

    Many thanks,

  87. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    You mentioned you are doing a “restricted” test next week. I thought access to all your testing was restricted (eg no public access until the October demo). What is different about this test? Is it a test for a potential customer?

  88. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    yes.

    Dr Rossi,

    Ophelia quote on ECW –

    “Rossi is doing the right thing selling the power.

    That should be required for anyone claiming to be able
    to produce energy from some new technology, sell the energy.
    Delivering energy below market cost is very convincing.”

  90. Andrea Rossi

    Firebirds:
    Thank you for the citation. Ophelia is right, but obviously this solution, as the interlude between now and the massive production, is very disappointing for the parasites.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    I keep my fingers crossed for the final sigma 5 tests. I hope that they will go as intended and that your E-cat QX is then finally qualified to pleasure the world with its heat.
    Just for my understanding: when you say it is ‘next week’, is that starting tomorrow or starting Monday the 25th of September?
    What type of tests do you intend to do?
    Thank you, kind regards, Gerard

  98. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    I intend this week starting tomorrow.
    The test is restricted.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    1. Can you project, and release, your estimate as to when you anticipate 5 sigma completion?

    2. Is 5 sigma completion a condition necessary before your new commercial Quark-X based industrial plants are delivered?

    3. Do you envision your 1 MW Industrial sites will be manned at the industrial site 24 hours per day by your personnel?

  106. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- soon
    2- not necessarily
    3- several hours per week will be enough, with remote control 24/7

    Dear Andrea,

    I understand you are not at mass production stage at this point. My question was to learn if you think technology is developed enough to build power plants (control, stability, durability, sufficient temperature, etc.), once you have sufficient production capability.

    Thank you very much,

    Thanks if you can answer,

  115. Andrea Rossi

    Krista:
    I do not think so, sincerely. The best and most vociferous among them, as I am aware of, after making a copycat of our E-Cats in their websites and presentations, are just waiting our E-Cats off the shelves, to buy and copy them. This is why we will go on the shelves only when we will be able to be unbeatable in the competition. In the meantime, we will manufacture only industrial plants that will be managed directly by us.
    Warm Regards,

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Your effect is the sole in the field of the LENR that has been really replicated by true third parties in America, Europe, China, Russia, Japan and is the sole that has been granted a patent in all the main Countries of the world. Your presentation of the E-Cat QX in October will be the jewel of the crown of your huge intellectual property, am I correct?
    As I always said, there is only one man that will be able in short term to make a reality the production of LENR in the world and that man is you.

    Dear Andrea,

    You say that you are now ready to produce electricity via Carnot cycle on an industrial scale.

    As you know, every year multi-megawatt coal plants are retired, having passed their useful lifespan, and thus we lose a source of grid power, while our world’s thirst for energy increases.

    Is the E-Cat QX developed enough now to be able to fuel a power station generating 500 MW of electricity (the average size of a US coal plant)?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  119. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Attention: I did not say that we are ready now to produce on industrial scale the E-Cat: I said that we are ready to produce industrial plants able to be coupled with the Carnot cycle system.
    Our construction and delivery time is not yet comparable to the time allowed by a massive industrial production, that is our target, but not our present capacity.

    The rumors that the Swedish prof that made the Lugano test have replicated your effect by means of a reactor, made by them, a reactor that reproduces your patent, using classic calorimetry with a water heat exchanger are insistent.
    Can you tell us if you have more precise information? This would be great. Anyway I observed that your effect is the sole LENR device that has been seriously tested by really independent parties.
    I am anxious to see your next presentation of the Ecat QX.

    Robert Curto,

    The U.S. electrical generation system is composed of four types of generation; baseload; seasonal baseload; intermrdiate; and peak. The heaviest consumption of electricity occurs seasonally during the summer and winter months. There is about a 60% variation over a single day in the consumption of electricity – heaviest in the late afternoon and lowest in the early morning hours.

    Since a Carnot cycle is used to generate the electricity (heat water to steam, turbines, etc.), the baseload generation unit is run continuously at the optimum efficiency setting for the overall generation unit. Then intermediate and peak generation is added to meet increased demand. Examples of baseload generation are coal-fired and nuclear plants. I believe this is where Ecat technology will most likely find its first power generation application.

  130. Dr. Rossi, if you can produce heat and electricity for 90% less cost, with zero emissions, who is going to compete with that ?
    Coal Plants kill, that is a fact.
    Nuke Plants produce Radioactive Rods, that have to be watched for over 100,000 YEARS.
    Solar and Wind work part time.
    I don’t know much about Natural Gas, but it cannot be less expensive then E-Cat.

    Can E-Cat produce electricity for a Condo, with each Apt. using what they need true a Meter ?

    As heating of homes are of considerable important for some billion peoples living in cold parts of the world, have you considered in which form the heating devices may be produced?
    1 May small units as radiators or fan heaters be actual?
    2 May such units be possible to operate without an electrical grid, only support from batteries preferably with thermoelectrical loading devices?
    (Today there is on the marked thermoelectrical fans operating on wood fired furnaces, and units for loading cellphones.)

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As we fret about carbon footprints, I am almost positive some government agency will start restricting wood-based campfires because of their CO2 output. So why not an Ecat based “camp fire”, for keeping warm, a soft glow, roasting marshmellows, etc. I would assume the control unit could be in the tent and the Quark reactor in the fire pit. With suitable “crackling noises” added for ambiance, plus the absolute control of the Quark temperature, and thus its blackbody radiation, a suitable simulated wood campfire could be produced. Plus no worry about starting the fire because of rain or throwing gasoline on the wood to start the fire. When can you produce these — LOL?

  137. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I don’t think so, but we are going on very well.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    I understand that at the first stage you will manage the units yourself and sell energy.
    1. When do you plan to switch to selling finished products? (one, three, five years?)
    2. Do you plan to separately separate Quark X in the future, separate control systems, for further assembly by the client of various installations for different purposes? Or just finished products?
    3. Will the certification of the installations you use be different and which customers will use or not?
    4. Do you need additional certification for the sale of individual items (Lego)?
    Sorry, maybe it’s too early to ask such questions.
    Presentation at the end of October? Look forward.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to answer our questions.

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    I am sure you are aware of this project, I would ask your thoughts on the possibility of pairing a Quark X array with this.

    http://www.ge.com/reports/call-ecomagination-ge-building-co2-powered-turbine-generates-10-megawatts-fits-table/

    It would seem, to my laymans imagination, that this would be within the Quark X’s range of operation and quite a good match up as the current generator schematic requires about 1/2 of the generated electricity to be used to heat the gas.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    The sale of household heaters E-Cat requires many years for certification. This is true?

  154. Steven N. Karels

    Svein Henrik,

    The conversion of energy is well known to all. Solar Cells convert sunlight to electricity. Hydroelectric (falling water) convert potential energy from gravity to electricity. Burning coal also produces electricity and, in addition, excess heat and carbon dioxide plus other pollutants, nuclear produces electricity and excess heat plus nuclear waste storage issues, wind powered generates produce electricity plus dead birds. A theoretical E-Cat powered plant will likely produce electricity plus unknown pollutants? Who knows until it changes from the theoretical into reality.

    The question is what is the effect on the environment (good or bad) for the benefit of the usable power generated for mankind? E-Cat technology, if real, looks very promising. If it really words, if it can be scaled up to commercial levels, if it is really controllable and safe. Unlike wind or solar, E-Cat based power generation looks promising for baseload electric power generation – constant output power, day and night, with a relatively low cost of operation. As Andrea has pointed out many, many times, the energy solution will be an integrated approach.

    The 54 Cats at Hemingway House in Key West survived Hurricane Irma. These cats have 6 toes (per paw) and apparently have more lives as well. Unfortunately, in the overall area affected by Hurricane Irma, there was considerable property damage and, tragically, loss of life and serious injuries. I am posting this, because it may provide a lighter note to this event.

    Dear Andea,
    Sorry that I continue asking about this further, but as an electrical engineer I find this highly intriguing. When you say that an electrical power plant with an E-cat QX is expected “much earlier” in operation than within 10 years, then plans must be quite developed.
    Can you expand a bit on that e.g.:
    1. Is the power level a: 0.1-1MW; b: 1-5 MW; c: >5 MW?
    2. Will it be in operation in a. 4 years?
    3. Is it based on a steam cycle or an other medium?
    Thanks!

    I hope you allow me to expand on the question if customers that want to generate electricity had approached you for using the E-cat QX and that you answered positive. Is it likely that within 10 years a E-cat QX plant generates heat for a operational power station?

  165. Stephen

    Dear Andrea,
    I have never experienced anything like a cat 4 or 5 Hurricane but after following the story of Irma I was quite stricken by the force of nature and how broad ranging and powerful it can be.

    It occurs to me that In many ways with the e-cat you are looking at the maximum power of nature in the very small while outside nature was showing her strength in the very large.

    I only saw some news pictures of the storm at Cat 3 and already it had awesome power. For those communities that experienced Cat 5 it must have been devastating. I hope despite the obvious damage those communities in the Caribean and Florida are able to recover relatively soon.

    I wonder how responses to these kind of situations can be improved and maybe if one day some technology based on the e-cat can help that. It seemed to me the things most needed quickly are food water and shelter, along with fuel and power. Maybe be a generator that can be brought by Helicopter, boat or truck along with tents and dehydrated food that can make use that generator would help a lot with those things. I know these things can’t happen fast but I have hope that maybe they will be possible someday.

    My best regards to you, your family and team especially those of you who went through this storm.

    Dear Andrea,
    Thanks God you have survived Irma. I hope you did not have many difficulties with any services like power, water, telephone etc. or flooding around the building during her passage?
    Just another question crossed my mind lately. There are many customers approaching you. Were there any customers that have asked you to deliver heat for an electrical power generation unit? Would you be prepared to go into a joined venture with such a customer in short terms?

  170. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    Thank you for your concern.
    All the issues from Irma have been overcome.
    Answer:
    Yes
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  171. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea.
    Whether Irma was a result of global warming or not, may be difficult to confirm.
    Chines authorities are now considering possibilities to ban vehicles driven by hydrocarbons.
    The most obvious alternative is vehicles with electric motors.
    One of the most prominent benefits of the QX is the high energy content versus weight.
    One QX, with the approximately weight of 2,5 grams, may submit 200 kWh within a life span of 10 000 hours of use. This is about the same amount of energy as in 20 kg gasoline.
    A bundle of 6 kg QX (2400 pieces) may submit a continuous heat of 48 kWh.
    This may be enough to produce 16 kWh electricity through the Carnot cycle.
    With help from a battery of the size of 1/10 of a standard Tesla battery, a lightweight car may function well with this power source.
    (When not on the road, such a car may also provide the owners house with electricity.)
    For the drive alone, in average 2 hours a day, the QX bundle will last for 14 years and reduced the CO2-pollution directly with approx. 120 tons. (The lack of need for production and transport of hydrocarbons will increase this amount.)
    This may not reduce the price of cars or the cost of using cars since the cost of the roads will still be the same, but the global warming and local air-pollutions may be reduced very much.
    I hope your decision of selling energy do not prevents developing solutions for such a use.
    Regards: Svein Henrik.

    To All concerned about:
    at 6.30 PM Irma is gone from the area around Miami; she moved toward west.
    We have not been damaged, but now we will have to manage the flooding. In my specific situation I did not have any damage or delay and I worked all the time through during these 2 days.
    Unfortunately the hit has been tremendous in the Keys.
    I want to thank all of you that sent explicit or spiritual sustain.
    Warm Regards

    Thank you for your kind concern.
    Here few minutes ago the wind was 135 km/h.
    I do not have problems, I am working safe in my lab.
    No merit at all.
    Hope to meet you soon,

    Update (Irma permitting)?

  184. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    I am working .
    We have a tornado now.
    I can see from a small window a very interesting pattern of vortexes produced from some geometries. Very inreresting.
    I am safe, well shielded.
    This morning the force here is higher, winds at 85 miles per hour ( about 135 km/h ).
    Obviously curfew has been ordered. The flooding here is foreseen between 5 and 10 ft ( 1.5 to 3 m ).
    The E-cat QX is hurricane proved now ( he he he ). Things are going to get worse, though.
    Now I got a window of internet, that most of time is disconnected. Sorry if for today and tomorrow I could gave to delay the publication of the comments.

    Dear Andrea,

    My wife and I are praying for you and all those suffering from these atypical storm systems. I understand your decision to stay at your work place, but … well, we are praying. I am at a loss for scripture to share for the last few days, but this morning, I hope, I have something of value to share. We all have you in our prayers, my friend.

    Tom

    Ps 90:12-17;
    12 Teach us how to count our days
    So that we may acquire a heart of wisdom.
    13 Return, O Jehovah! How long will this last?
    Have pity on your servants.
    14 Satisfy us with your loyal love in the morning,
    So that we may shout joyfully and rejoice during all our days.
    15 Make us rejoice in proportion to the days you have afflicted us,
    For as many years as we have experienced calamity.
    16 May your servants see your activity,
    And may their sons see your splendor.
    17 May the favor of Jehovah our God be upon us;
    May you prosper the work of our hands.
    Yes, prosper the work of our hands.

  190. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:

    Yrka:
    Thank you for your concern. Very kind. Right now from the window of my lab I can see a strong surge of rain and wind, but still not exceptional.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  194. Steve

    Andrea,
    I’ll be praying for you and for your family’s and team’s safety.
    I trust you are in a safe location, high enough not to be overcome by the water surge.
    I have been too busy with the Law School to routinely post on JONP, but I still read it most every day.
    Please keep up yur most important work,
    Steve

  195. Andrea Rossi

    Steve:
    Thank you for ypur concern.
    Our factory is hurricane resistant, my family is safely lodged, I am hurricane proof: as a matter of fact, I am more hurricane than Irma ( he,he,he ).
    Speaking seriously: the storm is increasing right now (12.10 P.M.), wind and rain are surging, but the core of it is moving west, saving to our place the harder part. So far. We all are worried for the people in the Keys, where it seems the hurricane will unleash all its power. They need our prayers.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  196. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    Also today the E-Cat QX is making properly his job.
    So far Irma did not hit, in this moment we are just experiencing guts of wind and some rain typical of the average storms in the Miami area in this season.
    The hit is foreseen by this afternoon, by the route of the events cone has changed, in the sense that the hurricane cyclon is rotating toward west, so that it should not hit frontally our area.
    The part of Florida that is supposed to be frontally stricken by the hurricane is now the area of the Keys, between Key West and Marathon.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  197. Lucio Martini

    Dear Ing. Rossi;

    Let me explain to you why the Carnot cycle can not be obtained with steam

    Because you do not waste time, I’m sending you a sketch on which I designed the Rankine cycle that develops between points: 1-2-2′-3-4, to which I have superimposed the cycle of Carnot that develops in points 2 “-2′-3-4 The two cycles, obviously working at the same temperatures and pressures I hope that both visible I hypothesized that the two cycles will develop between:
    T1 = T4 = 40 ° C p1 = p4 = 0.07375 bar = 7.375 kPa
    T2 = T3 = 250.33 ° C p2 = p3 = 40 bar = 4000 kPa
    I save the calculations, the results are:
    ηR = 0.345 (Rankine)
    ηC = 0.402 (Carnot’s)
    with x=71.5% in point 4 stop expiation steam (x is the ratio of the steam that mean 71.5% steam and 28.5%water in a wet steam)
    As expected, Carnot wins.
    However, the problem to realize this loop is in point 2 ” (where x=30.55%)
    It is impossible (or almost impossible) stop the condensation with a steam with x=30.55% title (at counts). In addition compress the steam wet would cause serious cavitation problems and finally in boiler where we have the steam at 250 ° temperature it would enter steam at 40°C with predictable thermodynamic mismatches.
    In the point 3 last problem is this: after turbine expansion, the value obtained x = 71.5% is low, should be x= 90% (but better more) to avoid problems of damage to the turbine.
    To avoid turbine problems, the saturated steam must be overheated in step 3. Saturated steam (in both cycles). But overheating would not get Carnot’s cycle. The overheated part is an isobaric, not isothermal transformation!
    Dear Ing. Rossi, I had, Ihave, and always will have it maximum esteem for you and how much you is doing.
    I also hope that the new E-TIGER QX directly produces electricity.
    Steam would be a problem in special way for the domestic plants
    While I am waiting “my” E-CAT, I have been one the first subscribers.
    Sincerely, and wish you all the best.
    Lucio Martini.

    P.S. I also calculated what happens by moving points 2 – 3 to 30 and 50 bar
    maintaining the condensation at points 1 – 4 at 40 ° C
    obtaining ηR = 0,355 ηC = 0,583 for 50 bar and ηR = 0,332 ηC = 0.382 for 30 bar but point 2 “keeps changing only slightly (x=30%: x=27% in stop condensation 2” Carnot very hight for the pump. But: x=70.3% ; x=73% in both cycles, very low for the turbine)

  198. Andrea Rossi

    Lucio Martini,
    Thank you for your insight.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  199. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,
    It is obvious enemies abound to see your work’s destruction, especially those who: ”walked according to the course of this world, according to the PRINCE of the POWER of the AIR, the spirit that now works in the (those) children of disobedience:” (Eph 2:2). What his children have not yet been able to do; he is now targeting you directly as ground zero. He does not want your vision for this world to succeed. I and those here (I am sure) will be praying for those remaining in southern Florida but also specifically for you and your team’s family’s safety.
    May God protect and bless you all.
    Brokeeper

  200. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Thank you for your protection. Don’t worry. I saw much more difficult situations than this.
    I am just working with the E-Cat QX and happy to. Nobody is going to stop us, if our work is useful and well done, as difficult as it might be ( it is ).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  201. I’m praying for your safety and that of all in Miami, a city that was hospitable to me when I attended the trial, saw the settlement coming down, and saw the joy on all sides that it was over, leaving everyone to pursue their future. All the best, Abd.

  202. Andrea Rossi

    Abd ulRahman Lomax:
    I strongly appreciate your candor.
    Your prayers in this specific situation will be useful not only to me, but to all the Floridians. Let’s hope for the best, after we have prepared for the worse. Anyway now, at the eve of the hit, I am working on the E-Cat QX, albeit I sent away all the rest of the team several hours ago. The hit will arrive tomorrow starting at 3 PM Miami time. I am most curious than worried, though. Never seen anything of the kind before, therefore something will have to be learnt, positive or negative as it might be.
    Warm Regards,

    In occasione dell’arrivo di Irma, qualcuno potrebbe pensare di approfittare del caos per accedere al laboratorio al fine di rubare segreti industriali.

    Dear Andrea,
    I am sure that your lab is in a solid building and no windows that can be broken or that are properly sealed. Probably you even got a generator to maintain the ongoing tests.
    But what about you and your family and colleagues? They all stay there too?
    I have seen the devastating damage Irma caused on St. Maarten island. There is no building without immense damage.
    Please be careful!

    Dear Readers:
    I decided to remain close to our factory, where probably the hurricane Irma will hit Saturday and Sunday. Therefore I do not know if the internet broadcasting will work: nobody has idea about this.
    As a consequence of this consideration, I am not sure if I will be able to publish and respond on this blog next Saturday and Sunday “throughout the ordeal” as Frank Acland wrote hereunder.
    If the internet will work, I will do as usual, otherwise I will keep again blogging as soon as the internet will be fixed.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    It seems like whatever the exact path that Irene takes, south Florida will experience some very severe weather. I wish you the best, and hope that you, your family, your colleagues and the E-Cats are secure throughout the ordeal!

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The NRL in 2011 made in Washington a test of the E-Cat during which the reactor remained practically for the 90% of the time in SSM. An officer of the DOE gave testimony of this fact in this very blog about a year ago.
    Can you talk us more about that experiment?
    Thank you if you can answer,

    Dear Andrea:

    You have shared that some in the crude oil distillation industry have or will visit you to presumably learn more about the E-Cat QX and possibly enter into a business arrangement.

    Also, you have responded to Gerard McEk saying that the E-Cat QX plant you are currently constructing for industry will produce heat in the range of 100-200C.

    The following link outlines the temperatures applicable to crude oil distillation, showing a peak operating temperature of about 400C. Does this support the assumption that your targeted industrial customer(s) are not in the oil refinery industry?

    Again, thank you for your willingness to share.

    Dear Andrea,
    It is exciting to hear that you have already started to construct plants of a considerable capacity (> 1MW). Please allow me to ask some questions about it:
    1. You will deliver energy and I assume it will be heat energy. Is that right?
    2. If so will it be a. low level heat (100-200 C); b. medium level heat (200-600 C) or c. > 600 C?
    3. May these also plants be used as a demonstration facility for the E-cat QX if everything goes well?
    Thanks.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    1- yes

    Dear Rossi

    Recent lowest bid on a solar farm

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-08-18/chile-s-energy-industry-a-spot-of-light-in-a-darkening-economy

    In last week’s energy auction, Chile accepted a bid from Spanish developer Solarpack Corp. Tecnologica for 120 megawatts of solar at the stunning price of $29.10 per megawatt-hour (2.91 cents per kilowatt-hour or kwh). This beats the 2.99 cents/kwh bid Dubai received recently for 800 megawatts. For context, the average residential price for electricity in the United States is 12 cents per kilowatt-hour.

    Will the ecat qx be as competitive as above offer?

  234. Andrea Rossi

    Arjen:
    As I always said, all the energy sources must be integrated. When you give data related to solar, you always must consider that the efficiency is not a number, but an integral wherein it is in function of the sun irradiation.
    This said, congratulations to the Chilean solar industry!
    Warm Regards,
