Alternator energy
I am not an auto engineer by a long shot. My question is this....

Does not the Alternator run as long as the engine is running? Does
not the alternator spew out the same voltages all the time?

Would not making the HHO+ at all times capture some of the energy that the alternator makes that the vehicle does not actually use?

would there be any avantage of using regenerative braking to
power the HHO cell....

just some basic thoughts and questions.

RE: Alternator energy
When the alternator is producing current, it is exerting a force against the turning of the engine (via it's belt). The more current draw there is, the greater this counter force is. That's where your energy is expended in creating HHO.

Using regenerative braking would be perfectly valid. You would gain energy that is otherwise wasted. You would have to deal with the complexity of storing the gas (that's not needed during braking), and getting the alternator to produce more gas during this time. Or maybe something even cleverer could be worked out. But regenerative braking energy is, for our purposes here, free energy.

RE: Alternator energy
well its not necessarily important to make the gas when you are braking...just capture the energy in a seperate battery or something during all braking....as long as the regenerative braking battery
is producing power to the cell the cell uses that battery...if voltage drops too low it switches to the
main battery which is charged by the alternator...

just a thought...

RE: Alternator energy
also the cell could have a some sort of relay or computer program..that iniaties HHO production only at the proper times....not when idle.;.....I am sure someone is working on this somehow...

RE: Alternator energy
I'm not sure someone is working on that at all. But it's a good idea. There's still lots of room for more good ideas in this field.
