    Can anyone tell me what would be the best way to limit the dc voltage if you had 110 ac going into the rectifier but wanted the dc to feed grid ties 22-60v..Would I have to feed a battery bank that I would wear out quickly..

    I have succesfully produced hho gas that (scared the shit out of me(20oz bottle full and a torch to ignite it,BIG BOOM :eek: ...

    I am looking to build my own gen that will use only the hydrogen and pump the oxygen off,way more stable that way and also burns slower like lp gas..not sure if I will still have to retard the timing on the small 800w 2 stroke. I have a needle valve to control the psi going into the carb..Looking to get double run time instead of running just off of HH.I will also run alittle richer oil mix.40:1 or 30:1 instead of the recommended 50:1.

    This is exciting ..all is housed outside under a roof.I will have multiple flash back arrestors and no large storage containers,just burn it as it is produced,alot safer. If I have any hh leaks it goes straight up at 75 mph so we dont have to worry about a heavy gas pooling low and then BOOM..

    I love science. :mrgreen: bluejay

    A DC-To-DC Buck Down Converter (170 V DC IN to 48V DC OUT)
    120V AC rectifies to about 170 V DC.

    If the Input voltage can fall below 48 Volts then use a Buck-Boost converter to output a constant 48 Volts.

    Could someone post some links..I dont see anything in those high of voltages for buck steps...even if I use another piece of equipment that converts the ac 110 to dc 30-48v(without using our norm rectifier) and could handle 800w max.. By a few different links to different equipment,I will be able to start learning what the most efficient way to do this would be..

    I appreciate it guys :D

    it doesnt handle enough amps obviously but just wondering if I can be searching for this type of equipment...
