Electricity in the Forest: Steam Powered Generator Demonstration

  • Sep 14, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • London Pub Co (Back Room)

Following the "Learn to Browse the Web more Securely/Privately" event Che from the Ontario Prepper Survival Network will demonstrating his two cycle motor and how to generate power through fire and water.

This event is the second part in a series of meets-ups specifically designed to educate users on off-grid or self-reliant power systems which are coined as the Electricity in the Forest series. See details and photos from Part 1 here:

In a post-electric situation/society, whether a temporary blackout or a zombie apocalypse(!!!), you may want to know different ways to generate electricity.
Have you ever thought about the different ways you would generate electricity if you had no power? What items would you need power for?
Technically you don’t need any electricity to survive. But just imagine if you had a way to recharge batteries and power some items. Take a moment to think about the advantages of having power...

Communications – radio, short wave radio, weather radio, walkie talkies and other devices…

Light – flashlights, lighting within your location at night and other situations…

Knowledge – access to books and educational videos through a laptop or ipad…

Security – access control to locations, sensors and alarms, night sights for hunting…

Entertainment - music, movies - great for moral in what could be a daunting situation...

These are just a few things that came to mind and we’ll be expanding on this during the event.

Using Fire & Water to Generate Power

The host of this event has converted a 2 cycle motor to run off of steam and he's going to demonstrate why it works and how you can create one yourself. The main parts he used for this particular generator came from a pressure caner and a 2 cycle motor from a weed whacker. It’s really not that complicated once you see how it’s created. There are obvious advantages and disadvantages to such a system and we’ll go through all of them.

Here's a short video clip (turn down your volume!) of the motor working through use of steam:

In a nutshell the pressure caner is being connected to a copper pipe which then connects to a pressure gauge, pressure release valve, release valve to the motor and then a air compressor gun. A camshaft was created to open the air compressor gun when the cylinder of the motor is just about to reach top dead center. I'll go through the process step by step, explaining what all this means and how it works at the event.

This event will be hosted by, Che, Organizer of The Ontario Prepper Survival Network.
