do i have the right DC motor for a wind turbine?
i have a dc motor i have taken out from an treadmill plugged it into a multimeter n gave it a twist got few volts, all good. what next?
i cannot find what i need by looking at the label, it has 2 different horsepowers and also has 4 wires coming out so i dont know what phase it is either it doesnt say RPM and also has 2 different watts (pic included) i understand one is for continious use is that the one i should refer to? :( can someone just prod me in the right direction please?
also it has a kind of fan which also spins on the opposite side should i take this off or keep it? and can i use any parts from the rest of the treadmill to help make a charge controller?
i was planning on buying 3 aluminium blades around 30" each and wanted more than 2 batteries in my bay, im ordering a slip ring, blocking diode and dont know what charge controller im going with yet... i have done alot of reading some things just dont seem to specific to me or maybe im just asking dumb obvious questions! any help appreciated
