Bicycle Generator of Electricity
I became aware of this Nibiru situation last April and have been working
steadily toward independence of the electrical power grid ever since. My first
venture into this arena was a bicycle powered automotive alternator. I
discovered that a 5 ribbed serpentine fan belt matches the tire rim of a
standard 10 speed bicycle, so I cobbled together a frame upon which was then
mounted a bicycle, less the rear tire, and with a 63 amp GM alternator. This
worked, but not as well as I had hoped. The field coils which comprise the
rotor consume about 2 amps of power, so the first 2 amps that you generate by
pedaling is lost to the field coils. Not good.

Since the total power I could produce at an easy and sustainable pace was
about 5 amps, my net gain to the battery was only 3 amps.
The solution I chose was to modify the alternator by replacing the field coil
with a steel slug, machining a groove on the O.D. and cementing in rare earth
magnets to provide the field. This new creature now qualifies as a
PMG(permanent magnet generator), which can be seen below with the rotor to the
eliminated any power loss to the field and results in all of the generated
power being applied directly to the battery you wish to charge. A permanent
magnet motor (PMM) can also be used for this application without any internal
modifications, but would probably require a sleeve to adapt the automotive
pulley to the PMM shaft.
A pedal power
system such as this, coupled with 2 or 3 deep cycle batteries and a small DC
to AC inverter can provide power for energy efficient lighting and
came to the conclusion that my shelter should include a 25 sq. ft. garden with
a 400 watt grow light system which would burn 10 hrs. per day. Although I
like sprouts, the idea of putting fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, cantalopes and
peas on the table was irresistable. So I turned to one of my favorite
resources, E-bay, and located a 9 hp., 2200 RPM, Changfa diesel. These miserly
little migraine makers are so stingy with fuel that the required 20 hr , high
idle break-in, consumed roughly one gallon of fuel. Not bad for an engine
about as far away from seating the piston rings as it can get.
framework was fabricated for the engine, two 94 amp GM alternators were
mounted to be belt driven.
this cast iron flywheel engine weighs 250 lbs , wheels were necessary as well
as a push bar for leverage. This unit can produce approx. 200 amps of 12 volt
DC power and , according to my calculations, do it on 1 pint of fuel per hour.
This means the diesel would have to be run only 2 hrs per day if there were no
other power input to the batteries, to acommodate the garden. Sooooo , if a
fellow were to bury a 600 gal. diesel fuel tank, (the same size tank used by
most people who have diesel equip. to refuel) it should last you at least 6
yrs. Not bad!
other information which should be of interest to those on this list, but right
now my two index fingers are getting sore.
