Introduction

While my main focus remains on telehealth hardware development, for a Physics class project, I am developing a 1.5kw generator.

By belt-driving an 1.44kw(120v/12a) electric motor from a leaf blower using a 1.49kw (2hp) chain saw engine, I hope to provide an unregulated source of voltage and current to either a laptop charger accepting a variable 120-240v or a modified computer power supply unit.

More details to follow...
