Homemade Windmill Generator

Are You interested to produce electricy from the wind with your own homemade windmill? If so, this is the real thing for You.As price of electricity increases this is becoming more and more popular!
This is a full tutorial for making a homemade windmill generator. It's explained pretty well and you don't have to be an engineer the things in the video!! The most efficient(bit a bit expensive)type of magnets are neodymium magnets. Those magnets are much stronger than the ordinary ceramic ones and with them you get much more electricity generated!
Neodymium magnets can be found on many sites over the internet. One of those is www.apexmagnets.com, www.amazon.com, www.ebay.com etc..


  • How generators work?
Generator is a device that produces electricity by moving the magnets(permanent or electric) near a coil of a conductor. The lines of the magnetic force should "cut" through the coil and push the free electrons through out the coil. The stronger the magnet is the more electricity is produced and the longer the coil is more electricity is produced. Here is an animation of a simple generator:

This is a simple explaining of a generator:
