This First part of a two-part paper deals with results from a circuit that was designed to determine whether the amount of energy dissipated in a circuit could exceed the amount of energy delivered from a battery [...]
The latest news in cold fusion and LENR technology is that Rossi has not only refined his E-Cat, but he has also created an E-Cat unit with different purposes from his original. The first E-Cat tested in October of 2011 was approved by the contractor. Rossi called it a “water heater” fueling speculation of the [...]
Each day of the week, Andrea Rossi gets up early and goes out to work on his Energy Catalizer (E-Cat). He also does battle with the establishment scientists and the card-carrying Skeptics, who debunk all the cold fusion research projects and call them ...
Evidence seems to indicate that the United States and Canada could soon be facing an electricity shortage like those already plaguing India, Pakistan, Japan and Chile. Wholesale prices for a kilowatt hour of electricity in New York City rose to an astronomical $1,647.56 on May 29 Bloomberg reported. New York’s electrical utility Consolidated Edison or [...]
When thinking of an electricity generating E-Cat with a COP of 6, it doesn’t take long to start wondering about whether one E-Cat can power another. If part of the electricity produced by an E-Cat can be used to provide the drive that another E-Cat requires to operate, with low cost nickel and hydrogen fuel you could be looking at extremely cheap energy on a very large scale provided by an interconnected system of E-Cats. A poster here, Francisco das Chagas made the point here yesterday very clearly: Remember: if the output is ELECTRICITY, there is NOTHING in the world that can prevent using the output of one device as input to the other two devices. You may use a battery, an inversor, or any other thing between the two devices, but in the end, the ELECTRICITY produced by the first device SURELY can be used to power the second device. Nothing in the world can prevent it. If one E-Cat produces 400 kilowatts of electrical energy, it can EASILY be the power source for TWO E-Cats, since two E-cats only need 332 kilowatts of input power. One E-Cat can power two E-Cats. Two E-Cats can power four E-Cats. Four [...]
There has been much speculation about the source of Andrea Rossi’s funding for the E-Cat. The first 1 MW E-Cat plant was apparently commissioned by a military concern. At the same time, Rossi...E-Cat Report - getting ready for the Energy Catalyzer
This is a guest post written by Hank Mills Recently, there has been a lot of talk and discussion about the COP of the E-Cat. The term COP stands for coefficient of performance. Basically, it means how much power you put in compared to how much you get out. With the E-Cat, you are guaranteed to get out six units of power (thermal) for everyone one unit of power (electrical) you put in. This means that a minimum COP of 6 is guaranteed. A few individuals have been saying that a COP of six is low. However, it is not. A COP of six is actually very high. For decades hot fusion scientists have attempted to build reactors that can exceed a COP of 1.1, and have not been able to do so. They have not been able to do so despite billions of dollars in funding. However, the current models of E-Cat that are soon to be commercialized can produce an average COP of six which is much higher than any attempt at hot fusion has ever been able to produce. In addition, this COP of six can be produced utilizing only tiny amounts of fuel, without producing any [...]
The first LENR power plant is now online in an undisclosed location. The E-Cat, developed by Andrea Rossi, is said to be working in the form of a 1 MW plant for a military group. The units were manufactured, according to Rossi, in the U.S. Some people express concern over any military group using LENR [...]
Potete trovare in rete un interessante articolo scritto da Dennis Bushnell, ricercatore presso il NASA Langley Research Center che a grandi linee spiega l’attuale orientamento dell’Ente americano nei confronti della fusione fredda/LENR. Bus...
Andrea Rossi has been consistent in saying that his E-Cat systems have a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of 6 — meaning that the total energy output of an E-Cat is six times the amount of energy input. Many of us have wondered whether this number is based upon Rossi’s current design, and if it can be improved upon in the future. A question about this was raised on Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics Blog: Q: Have you found some very fundamental physical reasons to this limitation (which you will publish some day) or is this just because of the current engineering choices ? A: Very good question. We have found physical reasons to this limitation, and we are going to publish this fact along with the theory. When I interviewed Rossi recently I asked about the COP issue and received a similar response, and it seems like the COP of six is necessary for safety and stability. Rossi said, “we have from some part some clown that says I made a COP of 20 a COP of 50 and this is just clownery that we never see anything working really at that level because it is simply impossible . .
