Doesthis generates an AC output?

the specifications for the bearing 13 mm is the diameter? and what is 5.5 mm for?

Hey I was looking at making this but I can't find the parts.where did u get your magnets, wire and bearings form if u can help me that be great thank u

ho comprato i magneti , il rame e i cuscinetti su ebay.
le dimensioni non le ricordo perchè la dinamo non è più in mio possesso

Hi, what would be the ratings for the condensator? I am trying to build a dynamo myself, but am unable to calculate which condensator will stabilize the system.

Puoi usare 2 condensatori in parallelo da 16 v 470 uf

Which parameters of custom coil fit this thing? Just the .stl provided with it? Personnally i'd just dump the .stl with the right parameters in there.

enamelled copper wire diameter = 0.18 mm

coil outer diameter = 57 mm

coil inner diameter = 38 mm

coil thickness 15 mm

hom = 230 for coil

Thanks, noted at the directory i put it in for(possible) future use.(I dont have the magnets to try right now)

Wouldnt it be better if the rotor gos the same direcion as the stator? Like a normal motor generator?

you will not get any potential difference. the coils must be orthogonal to the magnetic flux

Yes, but if you change the axis of rotation for the rotor, you would. In your current setup, the coils at either edge of the rotor do nothing.

Very nice :)
Can you give us the characteristics of the coils?

What do you want to know exactly?

Things to know would be gauge of wire used and the number of turns. Both of those have a direct influence on the performance.

the copper wire has caliber of 0.018 but I do not know how many laps make up the coils because I used two coils previously created

This is an magneto (a type of alternator) because it produces AC (needs rectifying) and uses rotating magnets with a fixed coil.

Other than that, it looks good: 10 volts @ 150mA is useful...

colpa del traduttore automatico. comunque grazie

ma quanti siamo? come facciamo a contarci?
