i am using variable speed switch from a hand driller, so I can vary the speed of the motor.

Can you elaborate a bit on this. I'm having trouble imagining it.

hydrogenmask, Are you using your computer as an O scope. And if so, Where did you get the software and leads. Thats a pretty neat setup.

Thanks

hi Spike,
sorry I missed your question. The Oscope is a 40mhz pc based oscilloscope. I bought it from ebay, and comes with the probes.

That's alright, I found it there myself. It's a nice setup. But the last couple of months I've been to broke to pay attention anyways.

Thanks

sorry to change the subject I am new. Just curious about using an ac motor for the alternator. Is this just for bench purposes? How about on the automobile?

This is just for bench testing. So that you can run your cell from an alternator.
