Introduction: How to Wire a Washing Machine Motor As Generator

A generator is a device that converts motive power into electrical power for use in an external circuit. Sources of mechanical energy include steam turbines, gas turbines, water turbines, internal combustion engines and even hand cranks. The first electromagnetic generator, the Faraday disk, was built in 1831 by British scientist Michael Faraday. Generators provide nearly all of the power for electric power grids.
The reverse conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy is done by an electric motor, and motors and generators have many similarities. Many motors can be mechanically driven to generate electricity and frequently make acceptable manual generators.

Step 1: How to Make the Connections

A Generator can be any motor in reverse.Washing machine motor generator wiring is a how to wire washing machine motor into a generator.There are many type of ac/dc motors out there like induction motors,universal motors,synchronous motors and man more.

Step 2: Apply Power to the Field Windings

After you have spotted the field windings you have to connect a 12v power source (lead acid battery) with some

kind of current limitter the simplyest current limitter you can use a 12v incandescent lamp,like the one used in car light start from 5w-20w and that will limit the current going to the field windings.

And naw you have to spin the shaft by hand,or pedal,or something else and from the brushes connections

you will receive power wich is proportional with the input voltage and current but normally should exceid the source.

Step 3: Maybe a Free Energy Generator Soon

The universal motor is so named because it is a type of electric motor that can operate on AC or DC power. It is a commutated series-wound motor where the stator's field coils are connected in series with the rotor windings through a commutator.
It is often referred to as an AC series motor. The universal motor is very similar to a DC series motor in construction, but is modified slightly to allow the motor to operate properly on AC power.

Thanks for watching see you soon!!

maybe replacing the big coils with magnets because what you are creating with the battery is a magnetic field.

the biggest problem with using something like this for perpetual motion is that you will lose a portion of the energy to heat and friction


there is way more research till free energy i am convinced that can be done

not by me maybe. but there is hope
