Wind Generator Answered

Hello Guys,

I am working on a small project that involves wind energy, I am basically looking for a generator, preferably DC and as small as possible, my goal is to generate at least 17V and between 1.5 and 2A. 

Does anyone know where I can find something like this?


Thank you
Alejandro Moncada

1.5A is a lot of current you are asking for. Although to do this what you can do is use a gear box with high enough ratio. How big do you want the generator to be or is that not a factor?

Any normal DC motor, spun mechanically, will generate electricity. Just re-purpose one that is small enough, then work out how to spin it fast enough.
