Magnet Rotor Mould

The outer part of the 2oo stator is only to mm thick. The stator has three mounting studs set into it at radius 55 mm from the centre in a raised portion ot the casting 20 mm thick- A central hole with radius 45 allows for the shaft and hub passing through. The tricky part is to support the studs in their correct positions during the casting* Fix them to their backplate* If the shaft has been welded on then you may have to make a hole in the island and the base to pass the shaft through. This...

Info

The impedance of the stalor is not simply its resistance, There is some self-inductance that causes reactance loo and the rectifier makes this very difficult to analyse concisely. A simple rule of thumb is to multiply the resist mice by a factor of 1,3 to correct for this and get a rough idea of the impedance. Thus one can get an idea of the power speed curve. Tu find the rpm, you need to estimate the extra voltage required to drive the desired current, add this to the battery voltage and I hen...

The table top and to catch any spillage of surplus resin. Do not embed my other conductive substances (apart from the coils) in the stator casting or the magnets will induce electric currents in them, wasting power and heating the stator up. Go through a 'dry run' where you check that it all fits together before waxing the mould. Place a piece of glass cloth into the bottom, then slide the coils in carefully with the wires at the chosen exit point. Check thai the stator mounting holes will be...

FINISH

The best scheme for connecting the three-phase coils together is called 'star also know n as Vye connection. There is another scheme called 'delta' but I prefer to avoid this because again it allows parasitic currents in the coils, In star connection, all three starts are connected together as shown above. The output wires are the three finishes In most cases the best connection scheme is series star. An example with six coils is shown below

In such cases you will need to tighten the stud onto the nut when you fit the first magnet rotor The nut itself cannot be turned and tightened later. But if the back of the hub flange is flat, then you can leave the lightening of this nut until both rotors are fitted, making it muc h easier to assemble the alternator Magnet rotor faces may need to be cleaned to remove any magnetic dust or metal swarf. Swift strokes outward with a dry paint brush work well In the case of the smallest, 1200...

You may need to hire or borrow some tools that you have little or no experience of using, Take the time to watch nthers demonstrate the right way to hold them and guide them safely and comfortably. Try them out on some waste material before doing anything critical. Most cordless drill batteries have a memory especially Nicad ones and will give best results if you discharge them as completely as possible before re-charging. You can often drive screws into wood directly without a pilot hole, but...

But bear in mind that this is a very approximate process, with several assumptions and simplifications. There are plenty of variables that can influence this outcome, including temperatures in the coils. You can go through the same calculations but starting with a battery voltage at 28 volts and using a lower current to obtain 200 watts and it will give another answer. The speed will not be much different but the efficiency is belter because of the lower current. You can calculate the windspeed...

From now on you need to keep hold of the wire s with one hand and the handle of the winder with the other hand. Keep a gentle tension in the wire s . If you release the wire then the coil may lose its shape and be impossible to salvage. Start w inding the handle and keep count of the turns. Make sure that the turns build up in an even layer, one wire snugly next to the other, until you have reached the rear cheek piece. Then start a second layer working back tow ard the front again.

Average voltage is a little lower than the RMS value that we commonly use to measure AC voltages. So the output voltage from the thee-phase winding will peak at 272 times higher than the average voltage or ane phase. 2.72 1.73 x 1-57 gt The DC output at the rectifier will be below thi peak value. It is reduced by the voltage lost in the rectifier itself, which is about 1.4 volts. This loss is a much more significant fraction of the total for 12-volt systems than it is for 24 or 48-volt ones....

The first stage before can ing it is to draw a centre line along the back of the blades shown as 50 line in the diagrams above . Then cut a new face that connects this line to the trailing edge, so that the trailing edge ends up sharp as shown. The width of the trailing edge should be under 1 mm. As you get close to the edge, clamp the blade sideways in a vice with the edge uppermost, so that you can see the light reflected off it and judge how much more you can safely plane off. Use a very...

Blade Motion

Closer to the root the blades move more slowly and so they should be wider and more steeply angled to the wind. But the outer part is the most important The root part does not sweep much wind compared to the part near the tip. The windward side of ihe blades is flat, but the back is curved like the top of a wing. The back generates a lift force, pushing the blades back and slowing the wind, 1 x ok for pieces of wood without knots, with very small knots, or with knots that you can work around...

Both tails should come out in the same direction as shown. When the first coil has been wound you should check its size to make sure that it fits the slator. For example if there are 12 coils they must fit within a 30 degree segment 9 coils each fil within 40 degrees, 6 coils each fit 60 degrees . And the outer edge of the hole must match the outer edge o the magnet disk. If it looks fine, then earn on and wind more coils. I like to weigh each coil so as to check that they are consistent - 5...

The tail is mounted on a hinge that allows it to swing away from its normal position when the wind exceeds a certain thrust force. At the chosen level of w ind thrust, the tail can no longer hold the turbine facing squarely into the wind. It...
