24 volt 36 volt high amp alternator questions

Question:
Dear Quick Start Automotive Electric,

I'm an inventor and I've developed a new type of engine which I'm looking forward to use in electricity production.

Due to the fact that I lack knowledge in electrical engineering, I turn to you in order to find answers to some key questions I'm having. I'll appreciate it a lot if you'd be able to answer a few (silly?) questions for me. :)

My questions are as follows:

1. Do you manufacture the alternators, or are you just a reseller of them? In case you're not the manufacturer, may I know who it is? We manufacture most all our high output alternators. stock units we resell.
2. I saw you're offering special 350 Amps alternators. At what voltage do these operate? 24V? 36? I'm asking because that is the one I'm looking to buy (350Amps @ 24/36V). 12 volt but on special order we can make them other voltages, but at the higher voltages it will be tough to get 350 amps. I'm not sure what amperage we can do.

3. In kWh, how much power does your 350 Amps alternators produce? (Refer to the one I'm looking to buy, 350Amp @ 24/36V). 350 amps at 24 or 36 volts is a very big alternator, I do not believe a standard auto or truck can be upgraded to 350 amps at 24 or 36 volts. Achieving 350 amps at 36 volts will be the toughest.
4. I read a little about it in your site and in Wikipedia, and figured your alternators eventually output DC, while I'm looking for AC. Is it possible to ask that you'll remove the diode bridge from the alternator, or must I do it myself? Yes we can remove the bridge rectifier from the alternator
5. Yours alternators are 3-phase, right? Yes alternators are 3 phase AC. Some can be made 6 phase.

6. In order to get the voltage/current running at a frequency of 50Hz, do you have any idea how many RPM must the alternator spin at? It depends on the winding configuration and the type alternator used, some alternators have more poles so the will obtain 50Hz with less rpm's.

7. Is it possible to connect a few alternators together in order to sum up their currents/voltages? If so, in what configuration do I connect them to each other? Please remember that these alternators are AC sources, not DC sources. So I don't believe that the simple rules of coupling DC sources apply here as well. You could but it would be very difficult in that you must align phases with AC current to run them together in series or parallel. .Series would be more difficult that parallel.

8. I live in Israel. That doesn't interfere with anything, right? After purchasing an alternator, you'll be able to send it overseas or in an airplane, correct? You have to pay shipping.
9. I'd need the technical drawing of the alternator. Is it possible to get, or are these confidential? I need to know at least the outer dimensions of the case (in order to anchor it securely) and the end of the rotor axis (the round thingy which the alternator belt wraps around). Do not have this
10. Can you supply me with a little physical data regarding the alternator I want to buy? (center of gravity, weight, etc.) Weight, general overall dimensions and shipping container size is all I have.

Ahm... That's all. :) I appreciate all the time you're taking to even read my e-mail..!

Yours greatly and looking forward to hearing from you,

Arye

Answer:
Yes, I want to make a stationarygas internal combustion motor with charging systemthat runs on alternative fuels, I believe it can be done. Anyway, I answer your questions above in red.
