How can i (step by step) generate 4000 watts and 220volt from a car alternator ?
Question by nicobotha12345 | last reply
I am working on a machine which uses two heaters and a cooler. Here is the electronics problem. Right now I have a 15 amp 110v refrigerant compressor and 2 15 amp 110v heaters on the machine. 45 amps 110v. That means I have to plug this machine into three different 110v plugs on different circuits. There are cords going everywhere and the whole thing looks messy. I am sure there is a way to plug this machine into 220 volts with one cord. The machine all together uses 45 amps 110v which is 4950 watts. I found a transformer which should do what I want it to do. http://www.amazon.com/LiteFuze-LT-8000-Voltage-Converter-Transformer/dp/B009AI9KDG This transformer can supply up to 8000 watts from 220v. This begs the question...How many amps can I draw from 220? I believe it is 30 amps which is 6600 watts. I think this would work because the machine draws 4950 watts all together. But I need advice from the online electronics community. Will this really work?

I have a new mechanism for a knex gun, and hopefully a new storm 220. It can switch between semi auto and full auto and is chain driven. I won't give away the mechanism in case anyone beats me to it, but is there anything you guys could suggest I could add to it? edit: It is now posted with full instructions

(This is just an experiment) The first circuit failed due to my mistake of using polarized caps. I replaced it with non polarized now. Can you please check if it would work? I don't want a loud explosion again :) Capacitors: 0.47uF 250V LED: 3V White Diode: 1N4004

Hello I have a emergency light with battery back up. its lights have gone out so i want to use its 12V dc power to transfer to ac power to backup a media converter, wifi router and mobile charger. Please, i want a detailed process of building this system. how much time could i get backup? i need a instrument and parts list for this project. i have uploaded the pictures of my light and specifications along with it. thanks

Can someone point me to somewhere where I can buy nuts and bolts? I need them to be up to a few cm long, and about small enough to fit through the hole in a TO-220 transistor. I tend to use them a lot, not just for fixing transistors to heatsinks, but my local hardware stores don't have them Also, I'm looking for those small plastics bits (look like a very small and short bit of pipe) that fit into the TO-220 transistor's hole, before you put the bolt in, electrically isolating the transistor tab from the bolt and the heatsink.

Hi, I'm from India and I own a bajaj pulsar 220 S that has a 35w 12v headlight and I recently bought an aftermarket enduro headlight to fix on it, but the problem is that the headlight I bought has two MR16 bulbls and each bulb has two wires coming from it both white in color, So I'm totally confused with the wiring thing, Should I solder one white wire with a red one from the motorcycles wiring socket and the other white with the black one of the ground socket? I'd appreciate if you could clear that up for me. P.S - I'm a complete noob when it comes to electricals.

Hi, I have recently acquired a 110v 60Hz Soldering station but i live in a country which uses 240v at 50Hz. I can get a stepdown transformer to convert the voltage (can choose between 50W and 1600W), but i am wondering will the different frequency damage the soldering station? The soldering station i got is https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10707

Hi,I want to convert 220 VAC to 12 VDC without using a transformer since they consume power even when a load isn't connected to the secondary output.So this is how its to be-A 12 volt dc supply should be available,which will be fed to a relay once a switch is set 'ON'.I could easily depend on a transformer but this 12 VDC supply is to be available always and can't afford the wastage.pls suggest an alternative(and FYI a battery is not applicable in this situation).

I need to generate 220V DC rectified from mains with suitable capacitor. I need to load my four micro switches in parallel with 4A load (with each node 1A). Can anybody help me choosing the values of capacitor and the diode for 4A. I've already blown off the Diodes BY127+330mfd which i used to connect earlier with 1A load. This is for testing the contact resistance of a given micro switches.I need to run these tests for a full day. I'd appreciate some immediate help... thanx in advance guys...

I have an Olympus FE 220 7.1 Pix that has not been exposed to ANY damaging elements but now the camera is not working??? The lens is frozen & it will not respond to ANY commands (power,downloading,lcd etc...) I of course do not feel it is worth the $$$ to have it repaired so I thought I might TRY to do it myself (IF I can.) Any advice? Be Nice.

I want to build a DC-AC inverter / AC-DC rectifying system. I want my inverter to convert 12V DC to 220V AC as efficient as possible and without to many components because i want to host my rectifying system in the same box as my inverter. my question is who has designed this two systems before separately of course with the least components and had an efficiency higher then 85%?

Question by mayur.phadte | last reply
I am working on the eye controller board of the hexapod robot and it has some resistors on it. The parts list calls for 12 220 Ohm resistors but, based on the photos, there are more that what it shows in the text. The 12 near the top of the board I know are the 220 Ohm ones, but I do not know what the others are. The 2 vertical ones near the bottom I believe are 20 Ohm and the horizontal one closest to the bottom 220 Ohm. The 2 located underneath the 28-pin sockets are half-covered by the plastic. Does anyone have a suggestion on the value of these resistors? I included a picture of the board from the instructable page and circled the resistors in question.

My Set Up: Car Alternator: 12V / 30Amps Motor: 1.5HP / Single Phase / 220 V / 8.5 Amp / 1420 RPM Battery: 12 V / 185AH x 3 Inverter: 2KV Mains AC: 220 volts / 50Hz 1.5HP motor attached with the 220 volts main supply, is used to run the Car Alternator; the batteries are charged by the alternator. Inverter is used to convert DC to 220v AC to power utilities and computers. I need your advise, to develop a system to auto-start the 1.5HP motor to run the alternator when battery voltage drops to 11 volts and stop the 1.5HP motor when the battery is charged fully to 13.80 volts. Thanks in advance. Regards

My garage has either electric heat or none at all and my heaters blow the circuit breakers every time I try turning anything else on. HOWEVER I have a 220 circuit originally for a welder that I imagine would handle them easily. So, does anybody have a way to make a simple, plug-in adapter from a 220 circuit I seldom use to be able to plug in 110 heaters? (all the circuits are in the US)

I have a DC controlling AC solid state relay connected to an arduino diode for control and a light bulb to the 220 side. While there is no signal coming from the arduino the bulb is blinking insanely fast, when there is arduino signal, the light remains constantly on as intended. How can i make sure there is no load at all on the 220 end while the relay is inactive, so there is no light flickering? Relay specifications: Control: 3/32VDC Output: 48-480VAC 50/60Hz Thanks in advance!
