1 MW E-Cat Cold Fusion Device Test Successful

On October 28, 2011, Andrea Rossi demonstrated his 1 megawatt E-Cat system to his first customer, who had engineers/scientists on hand to test/validate its performance. Due to a glitch, it provided 470 kW of continuous power for 5.5 hours during the self-sustained mode.

By Sterling D. Allan (who was present), with Hank Mills
Pure Energy Systems News

Well, the big day has come and gone. Andrea Rossi's one-megawatt-capable E-Cat cold fusion device has been tested in Bologna, Italy; and the unknown customer, who ran the test, is apparently happy.

There were some issues, so it couldn't be run at full power in self-looped mode, but what it did do was plenty impressive.

It ran for 5.5 hours producing 470 kW, while in self-looped mode. That means no substantial external energy was required to make it run, because it kept itself running, even while producing an excess of nearly half a megawatt. Rossi explained the reasons for this in the presentation he gave, which I videotaped and will be posting later.

That's half the rated capacity, but it is still a major accomplishment for the device that was completed earlier this week -- the first of its kind on the planet.

Early in the day with a glitch showing up, Rossi said that they had to make a decision about whether to go for 1 MW output, not in self-sustain mode, or with self-sustain mode at a lower power level. The customer opted to go for the self-sustain mode. Nothing was said about the prospects of a follow-up test, though I would imagine that the customer will be running many tests to understand this gadget they have purchased, and that information will be conveyed to Rossi.

When I asked him during the Q&A session if the customer was satisfied with the test, Rossi responded, "Yes, I think they are satisfied."

Here is a brief video excerpt highlight from Rossi during his 1-hour reading of the public report from the customer, followed by a question and answer session. I recorded the entire presentation, and we'll post that tomorrow, hopefully along with a transcription. Half the time was in Italian, as he would address each item in Italian as well as English.

In this excerpt, Rossi responds to the question, "So, is this a breakthrough?"

Cold Fusion: Future of physics or phoney?

Today is set to be the start of a new era of cheap power, as a new type of low-cost nuclear reactor goes live in front of an audience of scientists and media representatives in Bologna. Once the mystery customer who commissioned the device has confirmed that it really is producing one megawatt, they'll pay the developer, Andrea Rossi.

Unless, of course, it all goes horribly wrong.

Rossi's "energy catalyser" or E-Cat is based on a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction which produces vast quantities of energy from a few grams of hydrogen. Otherwise known as Cold Fusion, it's a field largely shunned by mainstream physicists. Rossi's work may have a significant number of followers, but it's still extremely controversial and some critics accuse him of outright fraud.

A demonstration earlier this month in Bologna with a smaller E-Cat was intended to answer some of the criticisms. Previously, Rossi had used the E-Cat to produce steam; this has led to arguments about the measurement method used to determine the weight and temperature of the steam. In a demonstration on 6 October, an E-Cat with a heat exchanger warmed a quantity of water. After initial electrical input from an external source, the E-Cat ran in "self-sustaining" mode for three and a half hours.

According to an analysis of the data produced during the demonstration by Matts Lewan of Swedish science magazine NyTeknik, during the self-sustained mode the E-Cat was producing between two and three kilowatts of power, apparently generating energy with no input. According to the Italian edition of Focus magazine, the scientists attending gave a standing ovation at the end of the demonstration.

However, Steven B Krivit, editor of New Energy Times and one of Rossi's staunchest critics remains unconvinced. His report on the 6 October test was headlined "E-Cat Test Demonstrates Energy Loss" because his method of calculation shows that during the experiment as a whole, including the warm-up period, the total energy output was less than the energy input.

Others dispute this and claim there was a net gain. Bob Higgins of Motorola Solutions carried out an analysis indicating the device output over thirty kilowatt-hours for an input of nine kilowatt hours.

There were criticisms of the methods used to measure the temperature of the water, and the fact that the demonstration only went on for a few hours. By running the E-Cat for 30 hours, Rossi might have conclusively disproved suggestions that the E-Cat simply contains hidden batteries or other power sources in its thick shielding. Rossi countered that if he had used more sophisticated computerising measurements, people could have claimed that the data was being faked, and that a 30-hour demonstration would be too long for any audience.

"Enough is enough with the tests, you go on the market and customers speak for us," he told Focus (translation from Italian).

And that's the important thing about the 28 October test: for the first time it will be carried out by the customer's consultants, not by Rossi himself. The customer, apparently a large US company which has declined to be identified, will be measuring for itself whether the E-Cat does what it says before it will pay for it. Rossi has claimed that the device will output six times as much energy as it consumes. If it fails to perform, Rossi will not get paid and the customer will doubtless remain anonymous to avoid the inevitable bad publicity. If it succeeds, the customer might reveal itself to take credit for financing the biggest breakthrough in energy production of the modern era.

There is a lot at stake for Rossi personally. He has reportedly sold his house in order to fund development work, and has been working 16- or 18-hour days for the last few months to get everything ready for the demonstration. The exact design has changed repeatedly; originally the one-megawatt generator was to be composed of three hundred small E-Cats, then it was 52 larger "fat cats", now the number seems to be 43.

On Sunday, Rossi claimed on his blog that the one-megawatt plant was being tested for the first time, and that it was working well.

Meanwhile, the E-Cat is beginning to be noticed by the mainstream media, with articles in Forbes and the US National Reviewonline edition. While few appear to have much faith in the E-Cat, it's might be compared to buying a lottery ticket: the chances of a success are low, but the prize is gigantic.

Energy costs are a big problem for many people, and the UK government recently expressed concern over domestic heating bills. After the October test, Rossi proposed as his own solution: a home E-Cat, a cube measuring 40 centimetres a side, which will produce all the heating and hot water you want. (Think "Mr Fusion" Home Energy Reactor in Back To The Future). His target cost is 500 euros per kilowatt, so replacing a typical boiler with an E-Cat would cost about £6,000 -- but you could then leave the heating on 24/7 and never see a fuel bill again. Rossi claims it could be on the market within months, though one suspects that there might be regulatory issues with people have nuclear reactors in the homes.

Cheap fusion power would transform economies, and con-artists play on the dream of free energy. But fraudsters usually keep asking for a bit more money to complete their invention and keep delaying the actual proof. It would be a very bold fraudster who offered to let a customer test their magic energy-maker for themselves before getting hold of the money. And fooling people with a few hidden batteries is one thing; faking a one-megawatt power plant under close scrutiny would surely be impossible.

Or would it?

Rossi says that today the experimental results will be updated hour-by-hour, with a full report and video at midnight. Will it be a triumphant success, or an abject failure? Or will there be endless squabbling about measurements and standards, allegations of cheating or sabotage?

We'll know by the weekend.

Great, cold fusion or alchemy works, nice to see this confirmed in public.
I think nobody will harm him as long as his E cat is very very expensive and even if it gets cheaper, 'you' will find government on your path bombarding 'you' with rules and taxes. :lol:

Don't bash on me but I thought cold fusion had been uncovered as a hoax years ago :D

Rossi has said that his LENR system is not cold fusion.

Question about the measured watts. When he says it produced 470 kW over 5.5 hours, does that mean a sustained 470 kW over that time? In other words, could his device power 4,700 100watts lights for 5.5 hours straight? Or is it around 24 watts sustained for 5.5 hours?

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2011
In yesterday's test of the 1MW eCat plant, after a period of time it Self-Sustained With No Input Power For Over 5 Hours While Producing an astonishing 470 Kwh/ph. 100 smaller eCatalyzers made up the whole plant which is housed inside a shipping container.

"According to the customer’s controller, Domenico Fioravanti, the plant released 2,635 kWh during five and a half hours of self sustained mode, which is equivalent to an average power of 479 kilowatts – just under half the promised power of one megawatt." NY Teknik

"There were some issues, so it couldn't be run at full power in self-looped mode, but what it did do was plenty impressive." - Sterling Allan, PESWIKI



On completion of the test. Small water leak is visible.

Breakthrough

On completion of the test Rossi was asked if he thought it was a breakthrough:

"If I think the test of today is a breakthrough? I think yes, yes because today we have seen no more small 5 or 10 kw unit, but now we have overcame the difficulties connected with the basic engineering to make something to go in self sustaining mode to make 400 Kwh per hour."

"You can also think that hundreds of Billions of dollars have been spent to try to have a cop of 1,1 with nuclear fusion. Today we have made a theoretically endless CoP making 470 Kwh per hour of completely free energy, free of fuel and yes, I think this is a breakthrough. Of course this is the first step, but it is a very important first step."




The Customer Report

According to the report the test was met with approval from the customer and the 1MW plant will now be shipped to the customer. it will then undergo further tests
in order to develop the technology.

There is still no real indication who the customer is, but clearly marked at the top of the report and then subsequently scored out with a pen is the word "colonel" in front the controller's name Fioravanti. Rossi indicated that the customer belongs to one specific category of organisations, and the title Colonel could be an indication that the customer is military - although this is by no means confirmed.

There is speculation on the possible customer identity however. An observant person noticed that in the properties section of the attached Excel datasheet that was posted was the author's name: a large Bologna company called "Manutencoop Facility Management", however they may not be the actual customer, but just a company contracted to help out on the day.

I thought I was reading that correctly. It seems they need better controls before their results are believable. Here's a concern.
Power for start-up (resistive coils that provided heat to the reaction chambers) was provided by the large and loud genset (was making all the noise) you see that is nearly as large as the small shipping container in which the 1 MW E-Cat plant was arranged. Once the reaction chambers got up to temperature, they were maintained by the heat produced by the reaction. I'm not sure why they kept the generator running after that, but I would guess it was for back-up or safety. I'm sure the engineers testing the system made sure what the power levels were at all times.


Cool if it works.
