I wonder how many watts that rotary converter produce ?

As far I understood, when a cap is high the other is low, so energy shuttled at each turn (3 times per turn).
Since the two caps are 180 out of phase, electrostatic force are in equilibrium so it doesn't load the motor.
Then an AC current is "induced" between the two caps, current value and voltage droop at the load will indicate Power.
Rectifying and choosing the best impedance will be required to extract the maximum of power from the machine.
The energy is conserved during the whole process inside the two caps (I neglect capacitor leakage losses).
