Renewable Energy to Power Vehicle Engine





Introduction: Renewable Energy to Power Vehicle Engine

I have an Idea budding in my head to run engines on water as fuel.
Today, I will share my thoughts with you and provide you a good clue of what could be the solution of GAS alternative.
Friends, before starting with the instructable I want to make it clear that I haven't build anything with this idea as of now. So, I am not completely sure how far it is safe and possible.
With this in mind lets start the 'project ENVIRONMENT'.....


P.S.: Those who are looking for the prototype, this instructable will not help you.

I will like to thank all those whose instructables I have used here.

Step 1: Basic Concept

The concept is to generate hydrogen from water through electrolysis and use it to power the usual petrol engine.

Electrolysis of water:

Go to my instructable on 'HHO generator' for more details.

Step 2: Supply Hydrogen Gas to Engine

Supply hydrogen generated from electrolysis to engine through the petrol intake valve.

Petrol engine uses a mixture of petrol and air to fire. Instead of petrol we will be using hydrogen.

Do not pre-mix hydrogen with air intake as it may result in explosion.

Adjust the fuel(hydrogen) pressure to get the optium result.

The engine should fire now.

Step 3: Vary Voltage of DC Supply to Control Electrolysis Process

HOWEVER, I can help you of what can be done.

Use a tachometer sensor (tachometer is used to read the rpm of motor) to read the rpm of engine. According to the rpm of engine vary the voltage of the DC supply.

For example:
when the speed increases---the rpm increases---this shld increase the voltage----this will speed up the electrolysis process.

And, when the speed decreases---rpm decreases---the voltage decreases----this will slow down the electrolysis process.

'The key is to generate only required amount of hydrogen needed for combustion.'

Step 4: The DC Supply

DC supply powers the electrolysis process....

To charge the supply, use a battery or dynamo/alternator.

Read the following instructable:

Now, the circuit is complete.

I hope this instructable makes sense and has some appeal to it.


Step 5: Update: Magentic Generator Assisted Car

this is a discussion about what are the possiblities of running a car using alternate sources of energies, specifically water and electrical energy.
lot has been debated on the HHO energy. now, lets debate over this new idea.
according to some inventors, magnetic energy can be used to produce electricity forever without any external effort. to support this, i am posting two videos which can convince that it is not entirely impossible.
the first one is very basic in nature and u can try this at home. the second one is a more commercial in nature.

my idea is if a similar generator can be made for an electric car, it can help charge the batteries forever and thus, help save in time to charge those batteries. also, the major advantage will be that the car can travel much longer distances, even more than conventional cars. what do you say guys?

P.S.: if you want to build a similar commercial type generator, you can download the manual to build one from my blog.

    I like to prefer soler energy .

    The problem is the laws of thermodynamics. Energy is lost because the electrolysis of water is not 100% efficient, the combustion engine is nowhere near 100% efficient, neither is the alternater. Energy is lost through friction and heat. This is an ages old idea, and as impossible today as it was decades ago. If there was an additional source of energy to offset the losses, then it would be fine. A solar array, for example.

    this argument that is based on the " laws of thermodynamics" is just plain foolishness. Merkidemis takes into account exactly what the other naysayers have spouted for years, and that is it, what is missing here is the benefit side of this ridiculas comment. It is true that it does take energy to produce brown gas, but what if I design a cell, test and install with an o2 and map enhancer, and save 50% on my gas useage........ is this an example of an energy source that does not work ? You naysayers need to do a FULL evaluation of this technology. Just spouting the laws of thermodynamics just doesn't cut it. I too studied therm in college and we advanced to Nuclear thermodynamics as well, ( that was nearly 45 years ago) and have used my engineering education my whole life. there are problems with any new or re-newed ideas, study the process, learn and experiment, you just piss me off with your narrowness.

    An engineer is conservative on paper so the Values are probably much Higher. I have seen other inventions that Brake or fudge this law. You always produce more then what you need. to Compensate for the laws of thermodynamics. this is why you Do not exceed an engine over 2000cc's otherwise you will never be able to produce enough gas to run it at that point you would need to produce compress and store at 15,000 to 30,000Psi you will never get more then your average 30 Gallon tank of gas but it WILL BE A ZERO EMMIT ION CAR that is the point of a Hydrogen powered car right?

    I completely agree! Think outside the box! Don't rely on everything you were taught in school or everything you read in books. It's like questioning authority. Question "proven facts" because if you don't, yer gonna be stuck in the classroom that's been sitting in a school that teaches old "facts". "There is nothing special about me. I'm just intensely curious." ~ Albert Einstein in other words, "What if?"

    Yeah, if you're such an expert then by all means, provide some examples where this has worked. Please provide a link to a frictionless alternator. And please don't accuse of narrowness. The whole reason all of us are even on this site is to find and share awesome new ideas and techniques. It just happens that this particular idea is neither new nor awesome.

    The engine doesn't have to be 100% efficient to use water as a medium to tap in to the ether/unlimited energy that is all around us that comes from the sun.

    I agree the gas you put in combustible engines are not efficient now at all for one reason they made the fuel heavier around the 1950's I believe so the fuel wouldn't get all the way burnt up and would come out the tail pipe look it up. If you just do a little research in history you can find credible people that have found way's of doing what this guy is talking about and been ridiculed, suppressed by the government's, and even some cases murdered like Stanley Myers for obvious reasons. It seems whatever someone says whatever someone invents even using the proper equipment to prove the results there is always someone saying the same thing over and over about the second law of thermodynamics. A lot of people say that the people who post such things are a part of the government but I just think some people are just brain washed by what they are taught in school. I have saw unlimited energy or free energy or over unity call it what you will but it happens it doesn't matter how as long as it works so please for the good of humanity just try and help instead of misquoting a law taken out of text.

    yeah it seems as though solar cells will be required for this and a plug in charger for bad weather
