The major obstacle was the heat produced by the generator, which would cause its explosion at a critical point. Conventional engineers trained in “abstract” engineering would try to reduce the size of the couple turbine/generator to avoid explosion. The environment where the machine should operate (water) would not be taken into account in the design process: their machine would be an 38 X. Guchet, B.
