I am happy to announce the availability of a new video in a new series. Based on personal circumstances I am now looking active into getting our house electrified independent from the power grid. I will document all stages of the journey and start with electricity producing generators. The Alternator. This technology is with us over 100 years and used for the electricity we mostly have available today from power plants. I will unveil some details about the power generation efficiency from a car alternator. I coupled it with a 1 HP electrical motor. The alternator is only half the rated power size of the motor. We therefore have large losses, but it demonstrates well what we must look for to get an efficient alternator. You find the video under movies/established-electricity-producing-systems/. None-Members and Basic Members can purchase the video.
