The 3 phase connection allows loopback spoofing! Use this on two of the phases to zero clamp measured current in them and you get under-measurement X3.
I think you can do this in the control box, which Rossi could very easily and…"
"I'm not sure I agree with the details here yet - I agree there has to be a mistake, but it has to be the right way round with the active power underestimated by 3X and the dummy power correct. The power is calculated from the PCE-830, not by…"
"Yes. I've looked at the PCE-830 spec. It is fine. And the currents measured to calculated Joule heating in the feed wires are from the PCE-830, just as the power measurements are.
So this error is clearly one of different settings etc between…"
"I am suspending judgement. In this case, with a report that has a major error relating to the claimed input power, we cannot take it as any evidence of Rossi's device working. Of course, if the authors can explain the error I could then…"
"You shouldn't blindly trust their measurements, but neither should you discard the entire work because of one measurement that may be incorrect or misstated or perhaps even misunderstood. I believe the profs will make a statement…"
