    DIY 1000 watt wind turbine

    Thank you for the answer, this is exactly what's puzzling me. If I go online and check power calculators I have to enter the wind speed and the blade length then I can have the maximum power that can be extracted, e.g. for a 15 mph,a 3 ft blade turbine can extract 111W, that's all.So for this wind speed and length blade there's no way you can get 200W, 1000W or 5000W no matter how many magnets, coils, windings you use.Please correct me if I am wrong, I still live under the impression that the more magnets you add, the more power you get.

    Hi, I have a question, let's say that I have a turbine that for 30 mph would output maximum 1kw. How does the generator come into the equation? Would it matter if use a 48 magnet generator instead of a 24?
