Hello. I am attempting to design a generator that works with the (admittitedly) inefficent design or rotating a conductive material inside a magnetic field to produce current flow. I could use help finding the formulas I need to calculate the ammount of spin and size of coils i will need to produce current so that I can play around with a desing idea I have and see just how innefficent and impossible to build it will be. I would appriciate not just the formulas that I will need to calculate the variables to achieve a specific output but also the references I should read to gain a better understanding of the proper applications of them and to increase my knowledge. I am not an engineer or electrician, however I am not completely uneducated. I understand the basic principles and would like to give myself a quick education on very basic level design theory and various materials that would work better than copper wire for my coils. If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
