Homemade electricity generator for low speeds

Why build a generator yourself when everything can be bought somewhere?

  1. The only thing I learn from buying is spending money
  2. I was unable to find a generator that could generate significant voltage and current at low revolutions of approx. 100 * min-1
  3. The generator should be used in a Stirling engine and possibly in a vertically running wind turbine, which does not bring the highest speeds
  4. The generator must also be usable as a motor in order to start a Stirling engine
  5. The generator has to run very lightly in order to keep losses low, i.e. no sliding contacts and no jerking, as with a bicycle dynamo
  6. For use in the Stirling engine, the generator should also represent the flywheel mass, which means that it must have a certain torque
  7. The test generator has to withstand my sons’ attempts to play :-)
  8. The construction must be simple and it must be possible to assemble it without complex special tools

In the following I log a little what I tried to get as close as possible to the goal, which at first glance seems unrealistic. (Neukirchen in April 2009)

experiment Power in watts rotation speed
Wooden Generator 1 exp. 2 0,0085 fast
Wooden Generator 1 exp. 3 0,231 fast
Kreissägeblatt Generator Exp. 1 1,6 rpm

Gucken Sie auch mal bei http://www.heinzmann.com. unter Scheibengeneratoren.
Ich glaube da wird der passende Motor für Sie angeboten. Heinzmann hat wohl die Firma
Perm Aufgekauft. Mit der hatte ich vor ca. 10 Jahren Kontakt. ich konnte dann aber aus Privaten Gründen nicht mehr an meinen Ideen weiterarbeiten. Ich bin ja auch nur ein
Raumausstatter mit Hang zur Energietechnik. Aber seit 13 Jahren in Rente. M.Fr.Gr. Reinhold Schleising.
