You will need
- - polyethylene canister;
- plate and the electrodes;
- - connecting wires;
- - the hoses and the clamps;
- sealant and sealing tape;
- - silicone rubber.
To build a simple generator pick a suitable container for the water. Inside the tank, install the plate. Through the container cap to the plates move the electrodes. Cover or make easily removable or provide it hermetically close the hole to refill the water. Also at the top of the generator make gas outlet pipe and the hydrogen supply into the intake manifold. Cover must be hermetically sealed. Using high-quality insulation materials between the plates, you will reduce power losses.
Obtained when operating the generator, ensure the mechanical connection of electrical leads and plates are not loose. This can lead to heated and even arcing, that is unsafe in the fire relation. The body of the generator must be robust enough to not be damaged by vibration. To give greater strength glue to the hull plane of Plexiglas or ribs of the same material. For the insulating cover gasket, use silicone rubber with a thickness of 1 mm.
For the modernization of the resulting generator to fit a second tank mounted above the level of the first. Both reservoirs need to connect two tubes. The first – from the bottom of one tank to the bottom of the other, for water. The second connects the top of the tanks to drain the gas. The second tank will serve to store water and gas, and the first one to directly convert water into gas. In addition, the product gas in the transition to the upper reservoir would be to skim from small particles of liquid. The location of tanks shall be such that the length of the connecting hoses is minimized.
The electronic control unit generator assemble yourself, if you have skills in electronics. If no skills, order it to specialists. The control unit must automatically change intensity of current supplied to the plates is directly proportional to the engine speed. Pre-empirically set the desired power (amperage on the plates) at idle and maximum power. It will be respectively the minimum and the maximum power of the generator. The control unit needs to take the control signals from the flight sensors of the vehicle.
After installing the hydrogen generator be sure to check all hose connections for leaks. To do this, apply with a sponge and soap suds to all connections. In this case, any leak will manifest itself is inflated by the gas bubbles. A leak of hydrogen not only affects the explosion safety design, but also on the fact that reducing fuel consumption. In other words, even the slightest leak can cause negative effect, the car will consume an increased amount of fuel.
All parameters of the generator you will need to be calculated independently with respect to the model of your car.
The generator is useful to set inside of a car. In the winter it will warm, that will provide good circulation of the liquid inside of it. In the summer it will not be too hot, which leads to the loss of efficiency of the generator.
