http://Magnet4Power.net - Home Made Power Plant - Built Your Magnetic Energy Generator - To build your own magnetic energy generator can be an educational and cost saving project. In the move to more sustainable sources of power, you can reduce your power consumption or take your home off of the power grid completely by producing your own electric power. With a little mechanical knowledge you can build your own home made power plant. The basic required pieces are an alternator or DC generator, a pulley to mount to the shaft of the generator shaft, a belt, an engine or mechanic drive that propels the generator to spin and a mounting bracket. A person can either choose to physically design the alternator/generator, or can use an existing one and install it within a production and storage system that is designed by the user. This can be done inexpensively and with a little patience. Electricity is generated when there is a change in a magnetic field, called flux, that induces an alternating current in wire. The basic idea is that of an alternator. High strength magnets are rotated within a band of tightly bound wires to produce alternating current in the wires. The spinning magnets induce a very rapid sinusoidal change in current that can be then be put to immediate use, stored in batteries or fed back into the power grid. All pieces are mounted onto the mounting bracket or plate. The pulley sits on the alternator shaft, around which the belt connects it to the mechanical drive that provides the motion to create the electricity. These are the very basics. In addition, the power will have to be fed to a battery bank, fuse box or simple cigarette lighter outlet. For these operations some knowledge of wiring is important. Most electronic devices are designed to use AC power. A DC motor will probably be the most expensive part of the system. A DC motor would also necessitate an inverter to convert the DC power to usable AC. A standard automotive alternator is usually a more reasonable, readily available ...
