Rossi: 38 Watts Starts and Maintains the E-Cat SKL, Automatic Shutdown if No Load or Overload

Andrea Rossi has not provided details yet about the power produced by the E-Cat SK Leonardo, but today he has given information about the power it uses to operate and some other features.

Here is a Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics today.

Dear Andrea Rossi,

May I ask you 2 questions, please.
What is the power necessary to start up the SKL ?
And what is the power necessary to maintain the closed loop of the SKL ?
Warm Regards.

Toussaints Francois:
38 Watts for both.
Warm Regards,

He was also asked what happens if the load drops to zero, and the SKL is still producing electricity. He replied, “If the load drops to zero the Ecat SK Leonardo will stop to operate.”

Regarding a question about what would happen if the SKL got overloaded he replied, “There are the normal protections against shorts and the Ecat, obviously, can sustain loads that do not overcome its power. If you lower the resistance beyond this limit, the amperage goes to zero and the Ecat shuts down.”

In another comment, a reader asked (in Italian) if there had been any cases of ‘divergence’ in the operation of the SKL. Rossi replied that following the startup they had not seen any malfunctions.
