24 volt 36 volt, 350 amp high output alternator question

Dear Quick Start Automotive Electric,

I'm an inventor and I've developed a new type of engine which I'm looking forward to use in electricity production.

Due to the fact that I lack knowledge in electrical engineering, I turn to you in order to find answers to some key questions I'm having. I'll appreciate it a lot if you'd be able to answer a few (silly?) questions for me. :)

My questions are as follows:

  • 1. Do you manufacture the alternators, or are you just a reseller of them? In case you're not the manufacturer, may I know who it is?
  • 2. I saw you're offering special 350 Amps alternators. At what voltage do these operate? 24V? 36? I'm asking because that is the one I'm looking to buy (350Amps @ 24/36V).
  • 3. In kWh, how much power does your 350 Amps alternators produce? (Refer to the one I'm looking to buy, 350Amp @ 24/36V).
  • 4. I read a little about it in your site and in Wikipedia, and figured your alternators eventually output DC, while I'm looking for AC. Is it possible to ask that you'll remove the diode bridge from the alternator, or must I do it myself?
  • 5. Yours alternators are 3-phase, right?
  • 6. In order to get the voltage/current running at a frequency of 50Hz, do you have any idea how many RPM must the alternator spin at?
  • 7. Is it possible to connect a few alternators together in order to sum up their currents/voltages? If so, in what configuration do I connect them to each other? Please remember that these alternators are AC sources, not DC sources. So I don't believe that the simple rules of coupling DC sources apply here as well.
  • 8. I live in Israel. That doesn't interfere with anything, right? After purchasing an alternator, you'll be able to send it overseas or in an airplane, correct?
  • 9. I'd need the technical drawing of the alternator. Is it possible to get, or are these confidential? I need to know at least the outer dimensions of the case (in order to anchor it securely) and the end of the rotor axis (the round thingy which the alternator belt wraps around).
  • 10. Can you supply me with a little physical data regarding the alternator I want to buy? (center of gravity, weight, etc.)

Ahm... That's all. :) I appreciate all the time you're taking to even read my e-mail..!

Yours greatly and looking forward to hearing from you

Answer
  • 1. We manufacture most all our high output alternators. stock units we resell.
  • 2. 12 volt but on special order we can make them other voltages, but at the higher voltages it will be tough to get 350 amps. I'm not sure what amperage we can do.
  • 3. 350 amps at 24 or 36 volts is a very big alternator, I do not believe a standard auto or truck can be upgraded to 350 amps at 24 or 36 volts. Achieving 350 amps at 36 volts will be the toughest.
  • 4. Yes we can remove the bridge rectifier from the alternator.
  • 5. Yes alternators are 3 phase AC. Some can be made 6 phase.
  • 6. It depends on the winding configuration and the type alternator used, some alternators have more poles so the will obtain 50Hz with less rpm's.
  • 7. You could but it would be very difficult in that you must align phases with AC current to run them together in series or parallel. .Series would be more difficult that parallel.
  • 8. You have to pay shipping.
  • 9. Do not have this
  • 10. Weight, general overall dimensions and shipping container size is all I have.
