Hey, I'm new to this forum and registered specifically to ask people who know what they're talking about how I can make a generator for a wind turbine I'm trying to make. I'm in my first semester of college, and only have a high school education when it comes to physics, so obviously I've got very little knowledge. I understand that you need magnets to create a current within coils or wire, but I don't quite understand how they need to be set up, or how to calculate the expected output for a generator based on it's size and contents. I could REALLY use the help. I'm trying to build a small wind turbine to counter a bit of my electricity use. Honestly, I have a few ideas on how I might make it based on things I've seen, just can't trust myself to make one that would make enough electricity to be worth the cost.
