Chapter Experiment Three Phase AC Alternator

This final experiment in Experiments with Renewable Energy demonstrates the ability of permanent magnets and coils of wire to create electricity. In 1831, Michael Faraday demonstrated that by moving a magnet across a coil of wire, an electrical current was produced. Known as Faraday's Law of Magnetic Induction, this discovery made it possible to develop motors, generators and alternators. Our wind turbine works by rotating permanent magnets across fixed coils of wires, which induces electric currents in the wires. The type of electricity generated is known as three-phase.
