Homework Help: Question about generators

  1. Jan 22, 2010 #1
    Me and a friend where talking about generators and this question came up, how does the strength of the magnets in the generator relate to the amount of power generated?
    with Google we managed to figure out that the speed relates to voltage and the magnetic field strength relates to amps, but what are the formulas?

    also, we where wondering about how the voltage and amperage relate to the Gauss rating in electromagnets. or is the Gauss rating all the number of windings in the electromagnetic coil?

    I know there are quite a few questions here but any help would be great thanks.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
