How to choose a dc generator?

  1. Aug 31, 2013 #1
    I need a dc generator which would generate 19v and 1.5A current(roughly i want it to generate 30watts of power) at 1000rpm. I require it for a college project. the size of the generator should be small so that i can handle it easily.

    Have you looked around ?
    Every old junk car is ripe with small dynamos for windshield wipers, heater fans, windows, rear view mirror positioners, seats, radio antenna raise/lower, electric fuel pump, .......

    Get creative. Spin some with your electric drill and see what they'll do.
