I hope that you recognize that with a "1-wire," you first have to raise the RPM up past ~1,500 to get the field to energize. After that it should work like a regular old alternator/regulator combination until you shut off the engine.

My 1-wire puts out little at idle, but ~13.9 volts when the RPM climbs as measured at the battery.
