Dan from Otherpower is at it again. You can use this for a Diesel Generator Replacement.
Dan got his hands on a 1903 C&BC 6 horsepower steam engine and build a 12 coil 3 phase alternator (40 turns of 4 strand #15 per coil).
Using lodgepole pine it took him 40 minutes to get 80 pounds of steam. He maxed out at 3kW output but the system can sustained 2.5kW without any problem.
Sounds like its better than a diesel generator!
Here is a short video of it working.
