Wind turbine questions. Answered
I am asking these questions on behalf of another member who has English as a second language.
He is building a vertical axis wind turbine (savonius style, I think). The mechanicals don't worry him, it's the generator and the windings.
He wants to arrange six coils and six magnets. The magnets are going to rotate with the turbine. He has made the coils himself - each is wound clockwise, with 100 turns of wire.
He assumes (and I agree) that the magnets should be separated by 60° of the circle, alternating which pole faces the coils (S-N-S-N-S-N) and the coils should also be separated by 60°.
He would like to produce 12V DC, to be fed into a battery.
What is the best, or most appropriate way to connect everything to achieve his goal?
Links to sites that he can examine (and/or translate) at leisure would be nice. Or sites in Turkish.
(I suspect that Picoturbine documentation would help, but it's in long English. Still, I've added it to the topic in case it is of help.)
