 I need to know how to wire up my Stepper motor for my wind generator to get as much volts and amps. 

It is a PM55L-048-HP69 Taken out from an old HP Printer.


All I need is someone to explain to me how to wire it up and make a rectifier for it. THanks Much!!!

Its as simple as adding a rectifier per coil and a filter capacitor. From my experience voltage is based on speed and i would assume amps are too. depending on your application you may want to think about using several large capacitors to store energy between pulses from the coils. you will need a voltage regulator to controll your output voltage otherwise its pretty much guaranteed that you will fry anything you plug into it.
