I made it! It works but a bit deceptive on efficiency. The more i can get is around .35watt at 5 volt ac on each phase. Is it the wiring? I used 300 turns of 32awg on each coil. Any alternator specialist around??
Hi Druidosh! I've just reached the part of the assembly where I have to make the coils connections, but looking at your picture I ended up getting a little confused by seeing 4 wires. How did you ended up connecting the coils? As far as I could understand of this project from Tanya is that this would be a two phase generator with a neutral, ending up in 3 wires due to the angle between coils. Am I wrong about that?
Tanya mentioned having applied 800 windings each if I remember correctly. 350 mW sounds weak, though. Does that correspond with the applied physical power? How many RPM?
Probably 3000 RPM.
I wonder about the resistance of your load? I am not sure of this, but if your load is of lower resistance than your coils, then I think you can have low output?
I used same load as each coil. So i think is the most efficient.
But it's very strange that the output power is small.
I would recommend the following actions:
I will be glad to any questions.
I checked the Halbach assembly and the strong side is toward the coil. I suppose it's ok?
