I am building an off-grid, wood-fired system. The steam engine puts out 5-6 HP at 600-700 rpm nominal. My question is- should I go 48V from the start? I am interested in achieving max AC capability as this is an emergency system only. I guess I need to brush up on Ohm's Law. If I do 48V at 25Amps all day, how much AC can I consume at the same time? As a side not, I have a 6000W AC generator. Can I convert it to DC?
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
