Wind generator

Post  Nightjar on Fri Nov 10, 2017 6:53 pm

Recently acquired a motor out of treadmill, part of a verge pickup.
These motors are ideal for making a wind generator.
Looking forward to fiddling in the cave over the summer months, should keep me out of mischief.

Hi Nightjar, it will be interesting to see how you go with it. About 5 years ago I rewired a Fisher Paykel washing machine motor and it will produce 17 volts and light up a 130w spot light just spinning it over by hand in the vise. I never got around to actually installing it as yet I haven't sourced any blades or hub to fit the splines on the shaft. Can't rush into these things.

This motor puts out enough power spinning by hand to light a vehicle headlight bulb.
Will have to do some research on how to control amperage to the batteries.
Nothing ventured nothing gained considering the motors are free, laying on the verges after the novelty of getting fit on the treadmill wanes.



Slip ring is about the only item i'll need to buy.
