PART 2 HOW TO CEILING FAN WIND TURBINE

Filed under Wind and Solar

THIS IS A VIDEO TO SHOW THOSE WHO DONT WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY FOR THE BIG SYSTEMS OUT THERE. THE BLACK UNIT IN THE BACK GROUND IS THE ONE THAT IM MAKING FOR A FRIEND WHO WILL USE IT WITH GREAT GLADNESS. HIS ELECTRICAL SYSTEM WAS ALMOST COMPLETELY DESTROYED BY LIGHTENING. IT WOULD COST TOO MUCH FOR REPAIRS AND NEW DEPOSITS AND OLD BILL TO RECONNECT, ESPECIALY WITH REPAIRS FOR A NEW SERVICE BOX AND UPDATING TO A BREAKER SYSTEM AND THE WIRES DESTROYED IN THE HOUSE. ALTHOUGH THIS UNIT WILL NOT NORMALLY SUPPLY A NORMAL HOUSE HOLD IT WILL ALLOW HIM TO HAVE LIGHTS , RADIO, TV , CELLPHONE CHARGING, AND A FEW MORE THINGS BUT NOT ALL AT ONCE OR CONSTANTLY. BUT 20 DOLLARS A DAY FOR GAS IN A GENERATOR IS NOT AN OPTION EITHER. A BAG OF ICE, AND A COOLER IS. WE ARE MAKING A SOLAR HOT WATER HEATER AS WELL. BY 1:00 PM HE WILL HAVE ENOUGH WATER TO DO DISHES AND GET A NICE HOT SHOWER. THEN RELAX BY THE TV OR RADIO FOR A FEW HOURS ON STORED ENERGY. THEN GO TO SLEEP WITH A SMILE. IF HE GETS UP IN THE NIGHT HE CAN JUST TURN ON THE LIGHT. AND ITS ALL FREE. I HAVE ONE CONFESSION TO MAKE ABOUT THE ONE IN THE FIRST VIDEO THAT EVERYONE HAS COMPLEMENTED ON FROM THE BEGINNING. THAT IS , THAT THE ONE THAT IS IN THE VIDEO IS THE 7th OR 8th ONE I DID. I DID IT FOR SOMEONE ELSE BUT I DESTROYED ONE OF THE COIL SETS IN IT BY PULLING ON THE WIRES TO HARD WHILE I WAS RETHREADING THE WIRES TO COME OUT THE OTHER SIDE. BUT THE 12 VOLT SYSTEM INSTEAD OF 24 VOLT SYSTEM WILL NOT SLOW THE BLADES DOWN WHEN

    @thegreatwoodlife HA HA HA HAaa a… MAYBE A FEW YEARS FROM NOW. LOL. THANKS FOR THE COMPLIMENT ON TEACHING SKILLS. MY DAD USED TO SAY A LOT WITH A FEW WORDS. ME…. I SAY A FEW THINGS WITH A LOT OF WORDS JUST TO MAKE SURE NOONE GETS LEFT BEHIND. LOL. IT SURE BEATS 5 PARAGRAPH ANSWERS TO THE QUESTION I GET. IF THE QUESTIONS GET LONGER, THE ANSWERS GET LONGER. SO THUROUGH VIDEOS MEAN EASIER QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS.
    WAIT UNTIL I SHOW MY THEORY CLASSES OF WATER VS ELECTRONS. TOO EASY.

    @BriggsEngine1 If you run it into a power inverter, you’ll be able to run any electric device on it. A lot of people connect solar panels and wind turbines to deep cell batteries and let it continue charging them.

    @muddymuddymuddmann ok thanks

    @InfoBimbo THIS TIME TOO. LOL.
    I HOPE YOU GET TO ENJOY MAKING ONE. ASK IF YOU NEED HELP. IT’S WHAT I DO IT FOR.

    Not sure I got it all yet ! “Concerning the voltages” LOL, Never was my strong point, But the video is Magic, well done, very helpful stuff, thanks.

    @fuelban some say I use too much detail and others say more vids with all the detail. So I the vids are long and probably boring to most. But the info is definitly there. Ofcourse don’t operate heavy machinery after watching more than 2 or more of my videos in a row.
    I am trying to speed them up and compress the info as well in the newer Vids.
    Think of electricity as water. Pressure is voltage, current is gallons per minute, resistance is the size hole or pipe resisting wide open current. πŸ™‚

  12. fuelban says:

    @muddymuddymuddmann ……. LOL….. Well I like the videos just fine, and you can never have too much information guy, just got to watch once or twice that’s all, and I don’t mind that, LOL, at least you don’t go too technical as to loose the viewers, I think your videos are fine, and I know the difficulty’s of putting info over to a viewer, heck, i got an accent to over come too…. LOL… look forward to more vids guy. thanks.

    From the picture i think that you got it wrong (watching video without sound :), output frequencies of both windings are different, freq. of the lower winding is twice the freq. of the upper winding.
    If you like you can put it in “reverse”, if you want the same speed of the rotor you should put double the freq. @ stator windings to get it with upper windings
    You can get much better power output if you rectifie both voltages seperatly before conect them in series.

  14. tonfazg says:

    @fused210
    You cant get light bulb to light because you cant get enough power with both windings…voltage that you measure isnt right…voltmeter shows you voltage RMS value of SINE wave…and you dont have sine wave …it is more like this

  15. tonfazg says:

    @tonfazg
    lol i just realized that i am not clear with stator-rotor in my previous post πŸ™‚ windings are @ “rotor” but you will hold rotor static so the “stator” will rotate…

    I am still not understanding as I am not sure if I have to rectify the AC fron the turbine first before it can light a led or bulb.Please help

    @fused210

    I just saw the video with sound…it is not a good idea to put those two sets of coils in parallel…wire is designed to withstand current of 1A and not to mention the difference in voltage between two sources…there would be currents between those two sources that dont go anywhere else but just trying to get the voltage in a point of connection to same voltage….not a good idea at all.

  18. tonfazg says:

    @fused210
    If you want to use both windings then you should rectifie both voltages before you connect them anyway, in parallele or in series, diodes wont let any current to flow in a direction from one source in parallele to another, so there wont be a correction current in terms of equaling the connection point voltage.
    I simulate it but i dont see ANY reason to doit that way…your sources wuld conduct currents like flip flop…part of period one and part of period second…it is not good.

    Great videos man! I’m building a generator out of a hacked box fan in my apartment window and needed some review of AC to DC conversions. Your electrical explanations are spot on! Thanks again!

  20. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    @yotokan THANKS,
    I NEED TO PULL ONE APART ON VIDEO AND GO THROUGH IT. I GET A LOT OF PEOPLE WANTING TO DO THE SAME THING.
    THANKS.

    @fused210 AN INCANDECENT LIGHT BULB WILL WORK ON AC OR DC. THE CFLs WORK ON AC ONLY. THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO LIGHT IT UP. I LIT UP 12 STRANDS OF LED CHRISTMAS LIGHTS AND PLUGGED MY LAPTOP IN THE END OF THE STRINGS. POWER IS 100 WATTS. THE VOLTAGE IS THERE. RECTIFY THE COILS SETS AND PUT THE OUTPUTS IN SERIES OR PARALLEL ACCORDING TO WHAT YOUR NEEDS ARE. ALSO FOR HIGHER AC, CONNECT THE COILS IN SERIES AND USE THE OTHER WIRES FOR POWER. THIS MAKES HIGHER VOLTAGE AC.

  22. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    @tonfazg THE STATOR IS THE STATIONARY WINDINGS THEY DONT SPIN, BUT THE MAGNET ROTOR SPINS

  23. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    @tonfazg BOTH SETS OF COILS HAVE THE SAME FREQUENCY. JUST 90 DEGREES OFF FROM EACH OTHER. WHEN THE MAGNETS SPIN, THEY PASS THE SAME AMOUNT OF COILS ON THE OUTER SET AS THEY DO ON THE INNER SET PER REVOLUTION. AND YOU ARE RIGHT ON RECTIFYING BOTH SETS FIRST.

  24. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    @fuelban I APPRECIATE THAT INSIGHT. AND GETTING IT ACROSS IS THE CHALLENGE.
    MUDDy

  25. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    @fused210 IVE SEEN OVER 140 VOLTS ON MINE AND NEVER HAD ONE BLOW. THEY ARE PRETTY TOUGH UNITS. RMS OR PEP DOESNT MATTER , THE WIND IS WILD. WHEN ENOUGH VOLTAGE IS PRESENT THE CURRENT DRAWN FROM THE COILS WILL SLOW TH MAGNETS DOWN ENOUGH TO HELP REGULATE. BUT WHEN CONNECTED TO THE BATTERIES, THE VOLTAGE IS REGULATED BY THE BATTERIES. AND THE LOAD ON THE COILS WILLMAKE THE UNIT SPIN A LOT SLOWER. THE WIND PRESSURE ON THE BLADES IS THE WATTAGE.
