Regarding a slight modification to the electric generator configuration

  1. Jun 8, 2012 #1
    suppose a magnet and a coil are made to rotate in the opposite direction relative to each other, will this result in a higher voltage at a rpm as against the stationary coil and moving magnet configuration at the same rpm ?
    i've also attached a figure to illustrate the configuration.

    It's only the relative speed that determines the voltage generated.

    exactly, which will be increased if they rotate in the oppposite direction.
