"You can't destroy this system by injecting water. It will eat up water.

It will eat up anything!"


Tesla turbine designer Ken Rieli fields technical questions from engineers in “Steam Turbogenerator Tips - II”. Why not use a car alternator? What is the coefficiency factor? Does using blades change the mechanical efficiency? How did you decide on thickness of the plates? Learn the secrets. Build your own from plans!


Build Ken Rieli’s closed-loop solar steam & ORC Tesla turbine-permanent magnet generator from plans! Solar/biomass/waste heat.



“We are taxed twice as much by our Idleness, three times as much by our Pride, and four times as much by our Folly, and from these Taxes the Commissioners cannot ease or deliver us by allowing an Abatement. However let us hearken to good Advice, and something may be done for us; God helps them that help themselves, as Poor Richard says, in his Almanack of 1733.” - Benjamin Franklin
