Re: Building a Rez_arator

I've got a '55 Bel Air that I often think I'd trade for a Cobra. (A good reproduction.... shit I'd trade my HOUSE for an original one these days!) Had a '55 but it was a 4 door and pretty beat back in 94. never ended up doing much with it.. Funny story though. Should of seen me pulling up to the ga...

Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

I finally got my political focus in words: I can only fully support the candidate who offers me a perpetual motion device. In this, I can be confident that person is merely delusional, and not manipulative. I tried but they said they are only hiring circus clowns this year. I flunked finals in that...

Re: Building a Rez_arator

A solar cell and charge controller would accomplish what you're after. That would just suck the fun out of it .. :) Going into it I knew the alternator would not power much.. This is why I was surprised I got 12 volts out of it running off a fan motor. Also knew that an alternator has a RPM range a...

Was in a coffee shop "no bars were open yet.." But with it being sunday all the church folks were in there and apparently standard library etiquette is expected. You can't really take me anywhere in case you have not noticed.

Re: Building a Rez_arator

The loss will be nearly exponential as it runs. Yeah, I was hoping to get around this by just running the alternator at its lowest output RPM with only using a small load for accessories. But seems not to be the case. Looked at some motorcycle alternators.. same thing.. even lawn tractor ones.. Onl...

Re: Building a Rez_arator

" You're putting more current into your fan than you are getting out of your alternator. That is what I was afraid would be the result. and what I had wanted to test at a low load. I was thinking it may produce just enough to run the fan motor and enough to have some low voltage lights (DC light st...

Re: Building a Rez_arator

The alternator will definitely feel resistance when it starts producing juice, the more you ask of it the harder it is to turn... I figured this.. So I took the leads from the alternator and hooked them up to a dead battery, and there was a draw on the alternator but the fan motor still turned it. ...

Re: Building a Rez_arator

You may want to do some testing and revisit your theory. You can't get something from nothing. There are losses that you aren't accounting for... Energy cannot be created nor be destroyed, only transformed from one type to another . But not at a gain... this may very well be the case. Basically jus...

Re: Building a Rez_arator

Well for some part.. If it works. I would prob hook a voltage switch to the fan motor, so when the battery drops to a point the fan motor would turn on until the alternator has brought it back up to voltage. But with a load it would prob run almost constant. I'm really thinking more for just camp li...

Building a Rez_arator

So I'm looking at a Car Battery, a old GM alternator and an electric cooling fan. I hook a voltage gauge to the alternator, plug the electric cooling fan into the battery with a switch. Hold the electric cooling fan motor to the alternator so it turns it.. Voltage says 12 volts. What am I building?

That's an interesting question... now that's thinking like a racer. You can have a 750-watt electric motor driving a bike or trike. Certainly you can use a generator to charge an electric bike's batteries. I'm unaware of any rule saying you can't have a gas powered generator on a bike or trike. Hmm...
