Regarding COP>2

The fact that the results exceed a coefficient of performance greater than two is entirely explained in the model. The proposal is that charge moves at 2C. It is a non-local event. Our measurements occur in the 'wake' of the actual event. And this event will recurr many times before we are able to record it. Therefore if energy is delivered and returned once in each switching cycle one can expect a cop >1. If it is delivered and returned many times during each switching cycle - it will EXCEED cop >1. Therefore the model itself requires a greater than cop 1.

So again. The coefficient of performance is dependent on subtle variations between resistors and the coefficient of performance is expected to exceed COP>1.
