This just a short test of my steam turbine that i will install in my parabolic trough mirror for my senior thesis. In this test it reaches 34500 rpm @ 35psi. I could easily increase the pressure and see what it can do, but unfortunately the bearings are rated to 40k rpm max, so i didn't want to push them to their limits. Bear in mind that my trough mirror can produce 65-70 psi steam so i think the only solution is to use full ceramic bearings. My next video will feature this turbine with a generator attached to it. I already perform a test with a stepper motor but it produced only 12v, so i need to get a better one to see what this turbine can really do. I am open to any suggestions about the generator
