Well, I have some related BTDT. While its true that an AC motor likes a nice
sinewave at 60 Hz, there are some inverters on the market that will produce
AC output of acceptible quality. Also, there are alternators made for
ambulances which put out 200 amps, and some for busses which go up to 300
amps. I made a custom installation of a 200 amp alt (55 amp stock) on my 25
ft boat which is powered by a Volvo diesel. The combination of the 200 amp
alt and a 3000 watt inverter allows me to run appliances while underway.
Despite the sucess of this application, I would urge you to rethink and
conclude to leave well enough alone. Just the effort to fabricate a bracket
to mount the monster alternator should discourage you from pursuing this any
further. Finding space to mount the various compnents is also a killer.
