Hi I’m a year 12 student and I’m trying to turn a washing machine motor into a generator. In my physics class we have only learned about AC generators using permanent magnets but the motor I’ve got doesn’t have any magnets and I believe that it is called an induction motor? Anyway I’m still eager to try and turn it into a generator but I’m struggling with how it could be done. I want to leave drilling holes in the squirrel cage to attach magnets as a last resort. I have found people online talking about how you can use a capacitor bank to start the circuit but I don’t know how this would be done. I’ve attached photos of what I have at hand and if anyone could explain how I would be able to turn it into a generator would be much appreciated.
