Any reason to use a DC drive motor with variable speed?

I could try variable speed AC drive motor with a VFD but I would have to have reason to believe this would increase gas production before I'd try it. I am way to busy with university right now anyway, just wrote a Thermodynamics exam! aced it :)

I believe by changing the rotational curve or speed of the motor driver you will be able to see a real time update of gas production done as a lab experiment.

It would be nice to see this production and measure all the variables (volts, current) as you modify the motor speed.

You could better track the whole speed range and log all the data variables easily.

They also look similar to stans pwm.

Is there any chance the redi-line generator was a part of the VIC on the buggy?.. Not only for the driver motor...does any photo/video show where the wires goes from the blue redi-line gen?.. just wondering.  :)

I was thinking that could be a possibility... see the motor-alternator set is a "rotary converter" which converts 120 VAC into the high frequency DC pulse voltage stuff, so if you get a "gen set" like the rediline generator and then open it up and rewind the output section like a RVIC... and you could have an all-in-one-unit... with probably higher efficiency, the only thing is... you would have to get a get set that is designed to output the high frequency... because a normal genset would only output 60 Hz

Donald,

Are you starting with rewinding an alternator accoording the new info from Don?

I have been so busy with university, I haven't had time to touch the alternator since I got it. However, my father has finished removing the old wire from the Stator, which was nice of him! So I have a bare stator to play with once I get some time, the thing is I have 8 assignments/papers/labs/projects on my to-do list all before MONDAY so I won't be getting to it this week or this weekend... I really wish I had the time.

Some other good news is, I finally got my Quenching Circuits!! I ordered some Alumina Tubes, 3 of them, these are the Stats on them, i have one of each.
6” length:
Single Hole Round Ceramic Insulator, OD (in)=0.047, ID (in)=0.016 
Two Hole Ceramic Tube Insulator, OD (in)=0.062, ID (in)=0.016       
Four Hole Round Ceramic Tube Insulator, OD (in)=0.094, ID (in)=0.016

So I have 16 thousandths holes, the proper Alumina ceramic material that Stan mentions in the videos, these have a high melting point, and will maintain their shape. 1 hole, 2 hole, or 4 hole, for different levels of gas production...

I will use these to build a flame nozzle on the top of my cell like Stans, so I can burn the gas right off the top for demonstration. I will also use these for "in-line" flash back protection, at any place that I have gas flowing out of or want a flash back protector. I will just machine little brass fittings and then insert the ceramic into them, maybe a 1/2 inch piece of ceramic.... Stan says 1/8 inch of this will stop it 100%, but I can do tests on that...

These just came in the mail, so I haven't had time to build any nozzles yet either, of course I will do rigorous testing with the and a bubbler first to ensure that they do protect 100% for flash back!!! once I am completely satisfied with their performance and my tests then I will use them as I described.

I'll also do some testing on the 1 hole, 2 hole, 4 hole tubes to see what they do for certain amounts of gas flow, considering my production only goes up to maybe 500cc/min with salt water, i will probably be ok with 1 or 2 holes, but I'll have to test this, and the 4 holes will be good for higher production, and i can make nozzles with multiple ceramic tubes for even higher production.

This will be fun, I have lots to play with, when I get time!

What is the web looking material wrapped around the windings in the pic that don posted?
