Ferrite magnet wind turbine plans books printed out

2F Wind Turbine Construction Manual

My new plans for making a 2 metre diameter wind turbine using the more durable ferrite magnets are now available in hard copy form by post from me. It’s the same as the ebook version but printed in 2 columns in a 52 page book.

About hugh

I live off-grid in NW Scotland and have spent my life playing with wind turbines. I also love small hydros. Hands on renewable energy is my thing and I like to learn and to share my experiences.

    Hi I have just bought your book now I see there is a 2F book, is there anything I am missing?

      Hi Derek,

      I have written a few books over the years. But I am guessing that you are referring to my Recipe book as this is the most popular. It’s a good choice even if you plan to build the 2F to be honest as there is a lot of stuff in there that is not covered in the 2F plans.

      As the years go by I learn stuff and one of the lessons I have learned is that ferrite magnets have advantages apart from just costing less. They are much more durable than ndfeb magnets (neos). So nowadays although I still help people with their neo magnet machines, any new ones I build have ferrite magnets. I have built larger ones up to 4m diameter. They work nicely the so-called 3F and 4F designs. I do have some documentation on them but the market is so slow for my books that I have not bothered to tidy them up and put them out there to be honest.

    I used your design for the construction of two axial flux generator with good results on a Lenz2.


    Thanks so much for your hard work in developing this type of axial ferrite permanent magnet generator.
