Re: Wood-Fired Steam Engine to Drive Generator?

said by John Galt:

Rather than steam, check out wood gasification.

I saw someone run a generator like this on one of those prepper shows. They didn't explain it though. The gasifier seems pretty simple to make. I wonder what kind of modifications you would need to make to the generator though.

That's pretty much spelled out in the DOE document I linked to, above. They ran a 35 HP gas-engine tractor with a "mobile" unit and explain all the construction and other details.
