This is the last of the three part series of building a micro Tesla turbine. It was exteremely challenging just to make it spin at these speeds with almost no clearence from the end caps and the housing. It didn't perform as I was hoping, but in the future I plan to do some updates on this one to see its real potential. The biggest problem is the fact that I never managed to balance it properly as I do not own any equipment for that. It's performace would be different, especially if the output shaft was geared. For those who will ask why I used the faulhaber brushless dc motor as generator is because it's very smooth when rotated and the vibrations which was a lot from the turbine alone wouldn't increase.
