  3. Dear Hugh Piggot
    Desire has passed happy new year holidays
    I ‘m Norman Sandoval from Nicaragua

    Dear Engineer

    I have a problem with building my turbine 1200 mm.
    In the market I’ve only found neodymium magnets 3-1-1 / 2 pulgadas.No magnets seem to find the correct dimensions .
    In the self-construction manual you recommend for this model magnets 46-30-10 mm or nearly 2-1-1 / 2 inches. ( Spanish version ) .

    I need to know whether the turbine built with these magnets have an inch but if this will affect the performance of it .

    Or failing that problem would build it with smaller magnets.

    I would appreciate your help on the issue , since I am excited about the project .

    Greetings and blessings from Nicaragua

    Dear Hugh,

    With those dimensions of 1x2x1/2 inch what should be the pulling force of the magnets?
    What if you cannot get under n42 – 72lbs? What will happen when altering that parameter? More pulling force equals more volts?
    Thank you so much, David

      I don’t use pulling force as a measure but I am sure it can be useful under controlled conditions. I mostly look at the “remanent flux density” Br. if the magnets are more powerful then you will get more voltage at lower speed. And vice versa.
      If you want to adjust the flux density then you can do so by changing the air gap (gap between magnet faces). The minimum gap is determined by the stator and you will need some sensible clearance each side of it. But if you increase the gap you will get lower voltage at the same speed or higher speed to produce a given voltage.
      I hope this helps.

    Dear Hugh,

    I want to consult about the airfoils of the blades used in your design. In a thesis it is referred that the airfoil of your blades’ design is based on a standard airfoil NACA 4412. My question is if it is true or not, because the schematic view of the airfoil in your book has a flat face in its bottom. The upper face of the airfoil is an approximation to a NACA 4412 or not?

    Regards from Argentina,
