If an engine driven generator is your source of electricity, you have to provide it with fuel. Gasoline is the most common source of energy for engine generators. Diesel and propane or LPG (liquified petroleum gas) are other sources of energy. No matter which source of energy your generator uses, you are involved in some way with its handling. With proper care this task can be accomplished easily. If care isn't taken, problems with the carburetor (on gas engines) or fuel injectors (on diesel...

It all started on Wednesday 3 March 1988. Rich gave me a call on the radio to tell me about a great story he had received from Gerald & Beverly Ames. Of course my first question was Did they send any pictures No replied Rich, and it's to bad too because this would make a nice lead story and cover. Well, I've got a few days free, why don't I see what I can get By the way, Rich, where do they live , I asked. Near the town of Okanogan, Washington and don't ask where that is because I haven't...

Connect It Backwards And Zap It

Amazing technology advances are bringing us a whole new world of low voltage and cordless appliances to operate directly from our battery storage. Murphy was waiting with his law that says The more it costs, the greater the probability that reverse polarity will destroy it. You might want to make use of this automatic, solid state polarity sorter to save those expensive devices. It will beat you to the draw, no matter how quickly you can hook things up backward. Available everywhere, a 10 amp,...

One of the first things that you may notice about this copy of Home Power is that it has no date. We try hard to be regularly published, but there are many factors getting in the way of any schedule. One factor is we must sell enough ads to print and distribute the issue. We're talking paying the printer and the Post Office. Sometimes this happens later rather than sooner. Many thanks to the folks who are supporting us with their ads, especially those who've signed on for long term ads. Your...

For intermittent and short duration 12 VDC lighting it's hard to beat incandescent automotive lightbulbs. These bulbs shine in locations that don't see enough use to require the more expensive 12 VDC fluorescent lights. The biggest problem with car bulbs is the sockets and fixtures. Well, meet Tom Caton. He makes a nifty adaptor that lets you use car tail lightbulbs in regular 120 vac lightbulb fixtures. And he makes these adaptors using his own homemade electricity In the past those of us...

Fig 1 The Ames Daily Electrical Consumption 3103 Watthours per day

Color AM-FM CB TV Radio Radio Cassette RX Fig. 2- Present System Cost Breakdown over a ten year period. 19,458 or 0.58 per kW.-hr. and doesn't require heavy gauge wiring to carry the voltage. 12 volt DC power is very efficient, and there are a lot of electrical products available for it. A freezer of 12 volts will operate on around 800 watts per day, whereas a 120 volt AC unit will consume 3000 watts or more. The reasoning behind using 120 volts AC is that we, like most everybody else, have a...

In the previous article I discussed the basics of electricity and the related terminology and abbreviations for using Ohm's Law. This law is essential for working with electricity. The best way to become fluent with Ohm's Law is to solve some electrical problems using it. Review -- Basic Ohm's Law describes the relationship between the rate of current flow I or i in amperes , the electrical pressure E or e in volts and power P or p in watts P IE for direct current and p ie for alternating...

He PV gen system is one in which the PV input is optimized for energy usage and backed up by a generator battery charger system. The necessary parameters for determining the components are as follows 1. AC inverter usage in watt-hours per day 2. Priority ac inverter usage, i.e. the maximum wattage used at one time in watts. 3. Priority ac inverter surge, i.e. maximum surge wattage expected at one time in watts. 4. DC usage in watt-hours per day. 5. Number of days of battery stored energy...

My wife Beverly and I live on the western edge of the Colville Indian Reservation in North Central Washington. Our 80 acres lies on the top of a plateau (elev. 2600 feet) with little, but barbed wire to stop the wind. In addition to the wind, we have good solar potential with an average of 4.1 sun hours per day. We have no hydro power potential. I started thinking seriously about alternative energy around 1965, and moved slowly in that direction until, finally, our home is 100 powered by...

Barren and molten, the new planet earth first orbited the sun five to ten billion years ago. Even after the crust solidified and the depressions filled with water, this barrenness persisted. Chemical elements and simple compounds were randomly scattered on the surface. Organization of the elements into complex organic compounds was unknown. The creation of life over two billion years ago and its subsequent events have produced myriads of complex organic compounds from these scattered elements....
