That adds up to almost 110 DC. You could just switch to DC lighting. Strip a car out. One alternator runs the radio, lights, heater blowerbox, and all the other stuff in a running car. Don't go AC, go DC. Might be cheaper than you think. [/quote] Alternators are AC. Ya know, they 'alternate'. You can't series AC current. The lack of basic electric knowledge in here is amusing. [/quote] But all modern alternators have built in rectifiers (diodes). [/quote] Regardless, you still can't series them. [/quote] And you can't series a DC output because? Not that it matters most 110+ is made for AC anyway, while most DC is 12+. [/quote] you can't series a DC motor which is essentially what a rectified AC motor is because the windings are continually switching on/off as the armature commutes. Come on... use a bit of thinking. [/quote] Have you heard about capacitors? [/quote] Have you heard about inductance? [/quote] I thought I saw something on PBS about that very subject. :chuckle: If your point is about keeping pulses of DC synchronized then the capacitor is your friend. We're dealing with the output of a generator not the internals so inductance really doesn't apply here. :peace: [/quote]
