Re: Electrical Fuel from Sand?

Increase efficiency by 100%, use yellow water as your feed stock, to make brown gas.

Urin has 2 parts hydrogen, as compared to H20 with one part.

do the math.

pirate Re: Wing nut stuck on battery terminal

A nut buster will not work on Stainless Steel, just as it won't work on any copper alloys.

Re: Do you cool your solar panels to get more power?

I use a little trick I developed in 1979. Freon, and fun with thermodynamics, called a co-generator.

So you are saying that as soon as you haul the boat, you drive a ground, and connect it to the bonding system? Before for you plug into the shore power in the yard.

Re: Reverse Polarity

Yep a 30 mA RCD must hold at 22.3 mA's and below, unlimited time, this is in a fault situation. As well as hold for 100 mS for a 30mA fault.

So the RCD does not protect against the stray current...

Re: Reverse Polarity

hypothetical, right is right, but

There is no Perfect Transformer...sorry if I mislead you.

There is no Perfect battery.

There is no Perfect generator.

There is no Perfect inverter.

Not if the fault was at the line voltage prior to the RCD.

The RCD would not know of this fault.

Or you have a KW hungry boat,...
