The next order improvement would be to capitalize on the varying 
torque available out of a VWdiesel engine to increase efficiency 
and long life further.

Ideas anyone?


Yes indeed Val and ALL.    :        Industry dumped a lot of those types of drives in the dumpsters.
and I hustled my ass down to the dumpster and got one for FREE ------very expensive looking
thingy.        ----    Now that will go perfect with your idea of a 4 pole alternator.

At low power demand 1800 RPM       and at maximum demand      say 4500 RPM..

I am still a DO NOT USE  TORQUE  -----use RPMs on these diesels.   They are designed 
as high speed diesels -----and as such they do not like high cylinder
pressures. ----AND read my lips  ----Gensets are notorious for opening the throttle full
power on a load being applied.---------- 

Other than that I am gong-ho on VW gensets using the 1.5L VW diesels.  ----perfect


PS:       And for the newbies -----look up  Roger Browns home page  ----to see the
SAE pars on VW diesels ----curves are all there.
