Big alternator for sale in Canada

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ALTERNATOR IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR SALE.  CHARLES HAS DECIDED TO USE IT, AFTER ALL.  (Hugh, January 2014)

Charles Haynes has built a large ferrite alternator for a project that no longer needs it.  The alternator can produce 3kW at 75 rpm with 90% efficiency.  He is looking for a home for it.  It’s pretty heavy though!  At present it is in Vancouver, Canada.

Here are some photos.  Leave a comment if you are interested in this alternator.  Magnet rotors are 40 inches in diameter.

      It’s a prototype for a wave-power device but they have moved on to developing a new secret design instead.

    Hey Hugh,
    Hope you’re well along with Scoraig.
    I really appreciated your 2010 course.
    Could this alternator be adapted for wind -or is it a low rpm machine only suitable for a high torque water stream?

    Might be able to use it in the lab at the college. Any suggestions?

    Take care,
    Ted

      hi Ted,

      You could use this for a pretty enormous slow turning wind turbine. Maybe a big savonius? Or have fun in the lab but it will be expensive to buy even for this materials cost and heavy to move.

      cheers

      Hugh

    Hugh,
    I’ve got a large Savonius that might be a worthy mate. Please pass on my contact info if Charles’ creation is still available.
    Thanks,
    Brad
