I have never seen any documentation of the size of the genset. The 500 kVA figure was just one guy's wild ass guess, nothing more.
Beyond that, everyone with any experience of these things knows that just because a genset is rated X, does not mean it is producing X whenever it is running. In fact, a genset will only produce power as required by the load it is attached to.
Yes, the size of the genset was probably dictated by the initial loads associated with the preheating. So what? Why have another redundant and unnecessary power source just to placate the bystanders, the uninvolved, and the professional skeptics?
The only people that Rossi needed to be concerned about were the official observers, and you can be sure they did a complete energy accounting. Or you must assume that they were incompetent fools. BTW, no generator is rated as 500 kWh, they are rated in kVA or kW. Your lack of familiarity with the basics is on display here.
How can we be sure of that? Rossi's number one fan says Rossi's demos are non-scientific and that he sucks (Kevmo's word) at giving them. And have they come out with a reason why the output was only at half rating? Perhaps the generator wasn't big enough.
Or you must assume that they were incompetent fools.
Shills and nutballs is more like it.
As Kevmo says of Rossi’s test data ... it must be a typo.
(In reference to the 13,000+ kg H2 container that was weighed to an accuracy of about 1/4 gram on a bathroom scale that was calibrated by two people that knew their weight.)
Whatever you say. I tried to still-frame the video to see the model number of the genset, and consequently its capacity, and couldn’t do it. The manufacturer info was just out of frame.
When I said that the genset was rated at 500 kWh, I meant 500 kW. I have a 13.5 kW genset at home, actually, and yes, the figure was taken from the other observer’s report. I can tell you that the genset shown in the video is dramatically larger than my home genset.
Try to explain away the connected genset any way you want, but it stinks to high heaven, just like everything else associated with Rossi.
