Designing generators

Recommended Posts


Is it true that, if you have a wind turbine rotor, you can't generate more power, by redesigning the generator with more sets of coils and magnets??

If this is true, why??


(It might be an obvious answer, but I'm not an expert at all when it comes to electronics :)  )

Thanks a lot.

Hello
Heres a link that might interest you about wind generators http://www.windstuffnow.com/main/

The output power of a wind generator is a function of wind speed, blade design and number of blades,dimensions, air temperature and efficiency of the generator and the system as a whole.

You can increase the power output if you increase the efficiency of the generator. This cone be done with more powerful magnets yes (Faraday's law). I am not so sure about the number of coils though...

Whatever the case, the companies that designed the motors have already thought of these things.
