The following document was sent by Andrea Rossi to E-Cat World. Note: I did not receive the attachments mentioned in the report below.
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.
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)
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
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
Room Temperature: average 25 °C
Temperature reached after 4 hours: 1050 °C
Average temperature for 228 hours: 1050 °C
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
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
COP = 3,268/278.4 = 11.7 (ELEVEN POINT SEVEN)
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.
