May I suggest using an electric a/c compressor off of a hybrid

Maybe a group 31 deep cycle battery or 2 to supplement the lack of alternator

Maybe a couple of those electric motors made for bicycles to run all the time to charge batteries

And a possible conversion to manual steering off an old 70's jeep

From what I have been abe to find the hybrid AC compressors run at very high voltage.
They run off pack voltage, which depending on the hybrid could be as high as 330v dc.

Hmm, that is probably correct, I didn't research before responding to the thread

I really don't think you're understanding the concept of this thread.

What's the plan to add regeneration braking?
Which I think is cool.

If you're trying to save fuel.
What did I miss?
Since I have done both I'm just letting you know the accessory delete will disappoint and I will leave it at that.

Not a single one of your replies has to do with the question asked about regenerative braking. I did not ask you or anyone else how much fuel removing the belt would save, and mostly I do not appreciate your argumentative responses.

As Ecky pointed out so well, I don't need a reason to do what I'm doing, other than I want to.

Now how to do it?

Mostly correct. The most prolific electric compressor (from the Prius) runs on 200VAC. Yes. AC - 3 phase

Would that be single phase or 3 phase?
