I'm looking for a way to create pressure something similar to a teapot becoming heated and expelling vapor pressure.
I want to find a way make a pipe or something to create a force so The pressure can push a fan hooked up to an alternator that will then store energy in big battery(maybe car battery)

Hi there
welcome to PF :smile:


and you will find the energy needed to do all that will be much greater than the energy ( power) you get out of the alternator to charge the battery ... very inefficient

you could use wind power to turn the fan

have you heard of wind turbines ?

An author calling himself "Tubal Cain" wrote a most excellent little book entitled
"Model Steam Turbines and How To Build Them" which i can no longer find. Based on how well he presented information in that book , i'd suggest you try one of his others.

Author search turns up lots of books.

There is a whole world of steam hobbyists out there. Here's just one magazine
