Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello.

I have made a little generator which is running quite efficiently but i would like to see if i can squeeze one or two percent more out of it.

My physics knowledge is very poor and i wonder if anyone could tell me how Lenz's Law is affecting the device.

I will describe it then attach some photo's.

I'm using a signal generator to pulse a 'drive coil' with a square wave.
Above the drive coil is a diametrically-magnetised, cylinder-shaped magnet placed horizontally.
Around the whole thing is the 'output coil'.

The pulsing magnetic field of the drive-coil rotates the magnet on it's shaft, the rotating magnetic field induces a current into the output coil.

Here are some photos :

This last photo shows all parts combined, the silver-coloured magnet on it's carbon-rod axle mounted through a section of pipe sitting on the drive coil and surrounded by the large output coil.

I find it hard to visualise the Lenz effect, if anyone could help me i would greatly appreciate it.


Thank you.
