I have been working on a design for a turbine where the turbine would spin a flywheel that would help retain mechanical motion to create electrical energy. I have powered my CD Tesla Turbines with everything from my breath ,to compressed air and water combinations. To set up the alternator I simply attached a magnetic coupler to the alternator shaft, then used a coffee can as an adapter to fit the turbine.
If your getting a few milivolts out of it, it is working, but you havent connected it right.
The Tesla turbine has a flat torque curve compared to an auto engine that generally has increased torque with higher rpm.
I have no idea as to the feasibility of something like this, but would it be possible to make this into a sort of wind turbine, and then use the magnet discs as a generator? I'm been experimenting with wind turbines for about a year now and built a few HAWTS and VAWTS each one improving on the last. I have seen this video it is quite old and am yet to see this design running in anything other than a controled environment. Hey there, I just finished making a turbine for a physics project, and i wanted to thank you for the very helpful instructions! I am amking an air powered version and just to be on the safe side what is the highest PSI can i go up to with out causing a blow out and injuring me or other materials around me?

This Tesla CD Turbine is based on the Tesla turbine, which was invented by Nikola Tesla in the early 1900's. I adapted a magnetic coupler to an automotive 12 volt alternator, and got it to rotate by magnetic coupling with the turbine. Trying to increase the rpm with gearing, without additional pressure from the water supply, is futile.
I know that in general small-scale wind turbines have a lot of trouble overcoming the magnetism of the permanent magnets unless there is a powerful wind, so this seems like it would be a lot easier. No personal data is collected by this website, however we do use Google Analytics for tracking so some technical information may be recorded for stats purposes. I made pans for an engine a while ago that runs on both diesel and gas using (compressive detonation). I was thinking something like having a large, flared intake to maximize air pressure, and then a tail boom to make sure it orients itself with the wind . This is largely due to airs high viscosity, it bounces around and creates turbulence within a funnel, a small amount of funneling will improve performance slightly but large funnels actually make turbines less efficient, as they create drag and turbulence rather than allowing a clean stream of air onto the turbine.
Most alternators will require that much power just to overcome the resistance of the bearings, seals and fan. I want to make a prototype, but i need to know how much PSI will be generated at TDC right after the plug has fired with the throttle open fully. Kindly tell me what things do i have to apply and install more to get enough electrical energy from this turbine to light up a bulb ?
It seems to keep that fly wheel in motion, should be a lot easier than to fight the resistance of the alternator without it.

Then there is the force of the magnetics and back EMF to be overcome in order to actually generate power.
The standard solution for this though, is to build a more robust alternator, that produces usable voltage at a lower RPM.
It's a couple hundred dollars or so of magnets and less than a hundred dollars of magnet wire, to put together an alternator that works well at low RPM. This easy beginners version runs on garden hose pressure and is fun for demonstration or experimentation purposes. This same CD Turbine can also be powerful, versatile, useful and dangerous when used with compressed air pressure. The CD Turbine has unique design features such as no moving shaft, no bearings, no seals and uses recycled CD's. I will develop magnetically-coupled implements that will range from the practical (Generator, SaladSpinner, etc.) to the bizarre ( Skilsaw Blade , Punch Bowl Stirrer, etc). Although this simple turbine can be safely run at one or two thousand rpm on water hose pressure, it can turn tens of thousands of rpm on air pressure. To prevent this, regulate the air supply to lower the psi and use a digital tachometer like this one. If the CD Turbine comes apart at 25,000 rpm, sharp CD parts will be impelled literally at the speed of a gun.
