Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

This is a project that needs to be finished, the electric bills are getting higher and they don’t look like going down, Ever!! The start of this was knowing I could adapt any DC magnetic motor and turn it into a generator. Here are some pictures of my first attempt at building a VAWT.

The Motor

These coils number 42,  so I figured a 7 phase system should give me the correct volt/amp combination.

The Magnets

Without too much plans here are the pictures of the VAWT in my backyard before I attach any the generator and the guides for the outer section.

Here is the top section.

Here is a full picture of the VAWT.

VAWT 6-1-11

I still have a long way to go,  adding the generator and the airfoils. Keep any eye out for the performance data.
