homemade wind turbine
I built this circuit in hopes that the wind generator i'm working on will have less rpm's to spin to get the voltage I need to charge batteries or run lights on wind that blows. It's a really simple circuit that has only a few components, mainly a rectifier to convert the a/c voltage my stepper motor makes to dc voltage, and some capacitors to boost the voltage and stabilize it on the output. I bought this stepper motor at the scrap yard here in Vegas for $3. ( it can be seen further down the...
