Dear Hugh

Recently I have written two new reports about small PM-generators which make use of the housing of an asynchronous motor frame size 80 and four neodymium magnets size 80 * 20 * 10 mm. Report KD 681 describes an 8-pole PM-generator which needs a rather simple 8-pole, 2-layers winding. Report KD 683 describes a 4-pole PM-generator for which the standard 230/400 V winding can be used. Both reports are added to my website at the menu KD-reports and can be copied for free.

It would be nice if you add this message to your blog.

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 Hugh,

    i built a stator and it was expected to give a voltage of 50V but we end up getting 12Vrms at 1500rpm for a 14AWG wire but since it didn’t give us the required voltage, we started winding another coil. We are the stage of connecting the coils together and i just want to do the right thing this time around. Please, i need your guide on how to connect this coils using the star connection. perhaps a wiring diagram would be adequate.

    Thanks. I look forward to your response.
