I want to use high pressure refrigerant as steam, to run a compressor (backwards) to run a generator. (to run my house, or charge a battery pack)
Is there anyway to match all of this together? What rating on the compressor would tell me that its strong enough to run a (say) 20hp generator?
I want to put the refrigerant steam into the drive side of the compressor to subsequently run the generator. How much pressure out of how large a line will turn the right size compressor.
I'm sure this is not a normal question. Its diffinently in the DIY area. And, probably no one has all the answers, but I would appreciate any answer, even a pretty good guess, to help me get started.
