Leonardo Corp. Releases New Hot Cat Report

The following document was sent by Andrea Rossi to E-Cat World. Note: I did not receive the attachments mentioned in the report below.

LEONARDO CORPORATION

REPORT OF THE INTERNAL TEST MADE ON THE HOT CAT

Date of the Report: October 9th 2012

ATTENTION : THIS REPORT IS MADE BY LEONARDO CORPORATION, NOT BY A THIRD PARTY. THE TESTS MADE BY AN INDIPENDENT THIRD PARTY WILL BE PUBLISHED AS SOON AS ITS WORK WILL BE FINISHED, BUT WE WANT TO GIVE, IN THIS REPORT, THE DATA THAT WE ARE OBTAINING USING IN PARALLEL THE SAME INSTRUMENTATION THAT THEY ARE USING, WITH THE SAME REACTOR, THE “HOT CAT”.
TAKE THESE DATA AS THE NUMBERS WE REASONABLY EXPECT THAT WILL BE CONFIRMED BY THE INDIPENDENT THIRD PARTY.
THE REACTOR HAS BEEN MADE IN THE USA.
THE MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTATION HAS BEEN CHOSEN AFTER THE SWEDISH TEST MADE ON THE 6TH OF SEPTEMBER, SO THAT THE MEASUREMENT HAS BEEN MADE WITH THE MAXIMUM POSSIBLE PRECISION, AVOIDING THE USE OF AMPEROMETERS, VOLTMETERS , SUBSTITUTED BY MEANS OF THE INSTRUMENT DESCRIBED IN ATTACHMENT 2, MODULATED BY A VARIAC INSTEAD OF A TRIAC.


DATA

Please attention for the reading: we used the point “.” to incicate the decimals and the comma “,” to indicate the thousands, not the vice versa as used in many Countries; for example: 2,000.00 means “two thousand point zero cents”.

DESCRIPTION OF THE REACTOR

The reactor is a cylinder which has the following dimensions:
Length cm 33
Diameter cm 8.6
(See photos in the Penon Report attached)

SURFACE:

cm^2 891
Has been eliminated the internal cylinder, so that the energy has been measured only on the external surface with the Stephan Boltzmann equation.

Weight before the charge: g 4331
Weight before the test start: g 4351
Weight after the test stop: g 4350

Weight of the charge: g 20

Test started: Sept 25th h 08.00 a.m.
Test finished : Oct 9th h 08.00 a.m.
Total duration of the test: 336 hours

OPERATION

Time to arrive to the full operation of the reactor: 4 hours

Time to shut down the reactor: 4 hours
Net operation time of the reactor stabilized: 328 hours

TEMPERATURES:

Room Temperature: average 25 °C
Temperature reached after 4 hours: 1050 °C
Average temperature for 228 hours: 1050 °C

POWER EMPLOYED

Self sustaining mode operation total time: 118 hours
Peak power employed: 5 kW circa
Average power employed: 2.4 kW circa (two point four kW)

TOTAL ENERGY CONSUMED

kWh 278.4

ENERGY PRODUCED

T(°K)^4 = 2.838 * 10^12
W = 2.838 * 10^12 * 5.67 * 10^-8 * 8.91 * 10^2 * 10^-4 = 14,337 Wh * h^-1 (fourteen point threehundredthirtyseven kWh per hour)

TOTAL ENERGY PRODUCED

KWh 3,268

COP = 3,268/278.4 = 11.7 (ELEVEN POINT SEVEN)

POWER DENSITY

163,4 MW*kg^-1 (onehundred sixtythree point four MWh per kg)
(see the Ragone Plot at pag. 15 of the Penon Report attached)

INSTRUMENTATION TO MEASURE THE TEMPERATURE ON THE EXTERNAL SURFACE:

THERMOCHAMBER OPTRIS PI 160 (SEE THE ATTACHMENT 1)

INSTRUMENTATION TO MEASURE THE ELECTRIC ENERGY CONSUMED DURING THE TEST :

TURSDALE TECHNICAL SERVICES PCE- 830 (SEE THE ATTACHMENT 2)

PAINT OF THE EXTERNAL SURFACE OF THE REACTOR:

BLACK, PROPRIETARY FORMULATION, RESISTANT UP TO 1200 C , MADE SPECIFICALLY FOR LEONARDO CORP BY
UNIVERSOKEMA, TREVISO (ITALY)

This test is under scrutiny by an indipendent third party.

    How does the net energy produced = 3268 KWH when the total energy was 14.337 KW per hour x 328 hours of stabilized operation and energy consumed was 278.4 KWH (over the total period)? I get 14.345 MWH net. Power is in watts or KW and is just sold or totaled in KWH. You don’t buy a 500 watt hour power supply.

    This could use some additional explanation.

    I note that some nit pick the numbers. As Rossi has explained that this is converted from 1 type of documenting to another there may be some mistakes.

    As A programmer would tell you converting from decimal to hexadecimal to Binary & back things can be fine then Hiccup/ momentary Brain freeze- What did I do?
    It happens. Education doesn’t eliminate this human trait.

    Another thing is if your measuring small differences where you input a 100 watts & output say a 110 watts, very fine measuring is required to assure there’s no Errors. But there is a point where the Gains become so large that even a 10% Error is of no real consequence. Especially if your working on an ongoing ever changing design. Close is Good enough. Experience can tell you when you make gains. Only after closing in on a specific version would more precise measurement become important for refinements. This is probably where Rossi is at this stage.

    Once Locked in on a specific version, you would do extremely fine measurements & on 100 or whatever cores to look for Natural variations. Such as the 10Kw home version you may have a variation range of COP-6.1 to COP-6.5 You can now Confidently Guarantee a COP>6 for market.

    I don’t think Rossi is at the Extremely fine measurement Yet. Regardless he expects 3rd party testing to be very close to what he is reporting. This statement accounts for natural variations. No 2 products/Cores will be exact.

    3rd party tests will be more Important. I would expect there numbers to be more Refined. They are putting their Names to this. It is their Reputations at Stake therefore it’s even probable their numbers will be on the Conservative side.

    I’d also point out that Rossi has made no bones about it. These Tests were done under his watch. Very up front on this.

    la temperatura misurata era all’esterno del cilindro. ciò significa che la reazione all’interno una temperature più elevate.

    “The Hot-Cat was not turned on.” (Francesco CH)

    • Ged

      When displayed to an audience in a conference room. I would not turn on a 1050 C device in a small space full of people and flammable things either, that would be insanely dangerous!

    • Peter_Roe

      If there is any purpose to your comment, I’m afraid it is not evident. Or are you just so desperate for something negative to say, that taking Francesco’s comment out of context is the best you can manage?

  • Francesco CH

    Rossi brought the Hot-Cat prototype with him, showing it to the audience. The Hot-Cat was not turned on. Video and detailed report will be published soon.
