Main Question or Discussion Point
I am making a small wind turbine for my A-level RMT and wondering what kind of generator I need to charge a 12volt battery. The turbine is a vertical axis savonius turbine that will probably be about a meter high and half a meter wide. I know I can use permanent magnet dc motors and someone told me I could use a brushed electric motor from an e scooter to generate electricity from the wind. Is this possible and if not what other motor/generator should I try to get.
