I need some help designing a test bed for the next stage of a long term turbine project. The goal is to measure the overall efficiency. Any books or reference material would be great.
On one end will be a small high pressure electric boiler. There will be some kind of watt meter to log the power consumption. The boiler steam will drive a turbine and that will then drive a high RPM alternator. I need to figure out how to measure the output of the alternator.
