This is my first post on this forum and my electronics education has a long way to go so please forgive me if this is a dumb question.

I've been learning about 3 phase power lately and I have been wondering if an experiment I want to do is worth it.

Anyway, I want to rewind a 3 phase power generator (alternator) so each phase is a higher voltage output then the last. My goal is to create a kind of step charging effect across a capacitor. I can't really think of any reason why I could do this but please give me your thoughts.

Hi Davecbwfc!

At best you would get only 3 increasing steps, then it would be back to the lowest again.
