I think I have beginners luck! My cell leaks faster than I can fill it, but I can get up to 8-10psi in under 5 minutes. Had witnesses and took some crappy pics. 16 watts input power @ 8V 2A...

What do you mean here, Bubz?
8V and 2 amps on the rotor?

Yes, 8V 2A coming out of the Variac into the rotor. The pic shows another test with just 6.65V input with about 1.4A but the gas production is still good. the PSI rises about 1 psi every 20 sec.

when you do psi per second measurements you have to consider the volume of your gas cavity, if you have a smaller cavity you can measure pressure increase a lot faster, so you have to consider that if you want to get any steady readings from test to test or to measure production :)

The gas cavity or space available for gas is about 2 liters. This cell of mine is not exactly small. I'm am just amazed at how much gas is produced with just 10 watts. I will do a video eventually but I want to do some further testing with different stator cores first. I didn't believe myself what was happening so I did it a few times with witnesses to confirm that I'm not off my rocker. Each test was a complete success. I know for a fact that if I can fix the leaking gas, I can get a much better results. Once the power is turned off the pressure gauge falls faster than it rises. Even with the gas leaking so badly the results are still way, way above what I expected or have seen with other people setups.

10 watts? plus half a horse power, 373 watts

don't forget your drive motor in your power calculations

I do agree with you there. I will surely be taking measurements of it all for nitpicking in the future. I still don't fully understand why this works the way it does. I think I have a good start though. I just need to fix the damn leaks. every leak I fix it gets better then I find a new one.

I made a video of my last run! I hope you enjoy it.

man hook that alternator to a car motor and see what it will do with some horsepower backing it..
