Rossi-Blog Comment Discussion

  • Wasn’t overlooked - see post 8.933 from 7of20.


    This Rossi sock-puppet farce just became so obvious and old news (e.g. with all this “Stockolm” typo posters) that nobody gets excited anymore.


    Something more interessting:

    Over on ecw someone replied to a comment that Rossi bought back all e-cat distribution licenses:

    Quote

    “No he didn’t. He claims they lapsed as a result of the three year time limit. I know because I was one of the investors in one of Rossi's country distribution agreements”

    Do you know more about that? Is this true? Are there some early license taker which lost their license (without reimbursement)?

    Rossi, or IH did buy back licenses, but I think Aldo Proia of Prometheon...Leonardo's Italy licensee, did not accept the offer. He (Proia) complained that he had customers lined up for the 1MW plants, and Rossi ignored each. Still believing in LENR, Proia started another LENR research company, employing Stremmenos' son as chief scientist. Last I heard years ago, they thought they were onto something. Apparently they were not.

  • More of the genius that is Rossi. He told us that he was going to use some of the initial funds from IH to buy back licenses and that is what he did.

    That was reassuring to us early on. Technically, AEG may have ended up with their license back (a personal opinion) after IH broke free from the R'ster.

  • "Definitely a huge value! After 60 days of continued operation an E-Cat SK has produced (as we can and from a simple extrapolation) 31680kWh of heat, approximately the equivalentof 2762 kg of heating oil (avoiding, at same time, the emission of about 800 kg of CO2).”"


    Four more days to go.

    That was a very peculiar way of "breaking free".

    That works out to 22kW of continuous power. Definitely huge. Not as much as the BLP's SunCell but much longer running and probably higher COP.

    Can't wait to see what the E-Cat SK looks like, at least.

  • The SunCell produces more power because the plasma ball is probably ten thousand times larger in volume than the plasma ball in the SK. If a large SK were built with an equivalent plasma ball, I expect that the SK would produce more power because it would be in a better controlled state of resonance.

  • Director - don't push Rossi to rethink his new product and business plan! :-)

    I hope that Rossi - now having a product that is commercialized, certified and approved for industrial use and ready to be built in millions by his automated factories - now finally focuses on manufacturing, selling and delivering what he is promising since almost 8 years now. End of fairy tales and time to make money and flood the market with his revolutionary new SK heater, and stop (at least for some time) further R&D in bigger and more powerful ECats!! COP is more than good enough!

    (Can't wait to see the product in action and eat my hat as promised, if he has the goods he claims to have. But after an independend 3rd party verification only...)

  • Interesting... would be curious to see how he will handle a 40 MW installation at a customer...will require ca. 1500 SK reactors and thus ca. 150 controler boxes!!!

    Quite a pile somewhere in the customers facility or basement....and all operated via one internet connection!


    And: a normal 110V / 240V power socket will never be sufficient to run such an amount of controlers each 380W...?

If a large SK were built with an equivalent plasma ball, I expect that the SK would produce more power because it would be in a better controlled state of resonance.

    I don't recall the volume of the SK plasma. (Although the device weighs 1kg iirc.) The SunCell plasma would be roughly 2.5 cubic feet.

    When you say a 'better' state of resonance do you mean a larger SK in comparison to the smaller SK, or to the SunCell? The Suncell doesn't appear to operate on resonance, it just resembles a blast furnace from videos I've seen. In the past I remember thinking that the SunCell had the eCat beat in power density while the eCat was much superior in energy density. But if the eCat is now kicking out 22kW from a 1kg unit it would be the power density champ as well. Hard to imagine how that much power can come from such a small source and remain intact.

    I must disagree here.


    Rossi has a world-beatinmg invention - true. And, it seems he has cured the COP problem. Great. However, now, there are many other problems still to work on which if I'm not mistaken will require new designs of the e-cat. Probably we (or at least the ECW inner acolytes) will be allowed some say in naming these new improved devices and it will be very exciting.


    And while all this is going on, Rossi will have his satisfied customer just as he did at Doral.


    A lot to look forward to: who needs independent validation when we have this cornucopia of industrial and research activity?

  • What does he claim he is delivering to the "customer"- heat? heat as steam?

    if it is heat then it should be easy for him tap into some of the output heat and run a small

    steam engine gen set and not plug in to anything.


    So why does he need an outlet? Unless it is all just a sham.

    All 150 remote controlled via the internet. Not very comforting when this is taken into consideration:

      Dear Readers:

      During the last week we had to fight attacks against our website and many messages to [email protected] have been destroyed during the battle, as well as some comment on this blog, particularly on January 22nd. As you know, this blog has been fixed immediately on January 23rd, but we had more difficulties with the email address, that continued to receive bogus messages and block the incoming messages. Now we have fixed also it. If you did not find your comments on this blog or did not receive answers to your emails, please send them again, now all is working well.

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.

    The plasma in the SK is confined within a tiny line. The complex space charge construct within that line is even smaller. BLP utilizes at least some small amount of resonance because they go through the negative resistance zone. This means they by definition must be creating a complex space charge construct. When such a construct is produced, it start to exchange energy with its environment and produces oscillations. These oscillations will be resonant to some degree. I think a very poor resonance is produced in the SunCell due to the liquid metal electrodes.

  • Now go easy on Director. Whatever he is putting together triggered a complaint from someone, that he was butting up against a certain patent. Nothing ever came of it, but it shows Director and team are not working totally in the blind. In other words, there is a method to his madness, and he deserves some credit for that.

  • I am not talking about whatever it is Director is working on. I am talking about what he has to say about the SK, about which we have seen and know nothing whatsoever. Although I suppose Rossi reads all this nonsense and starts using the same buzzwords on his blog. Which do you suppose came first? Rossi generally gets his best all his ideas from his loyal followers.
