A Very Simple Generator / Alternator (Dynamic Model from Trash)

 A Very Simple Generator / Alternator (Dynamic Model from Trash)
This is very simple Dynamic Model of Electrical Generator / Alternator to understand the working principle of Generator. We conected An LED as a load to the Generator Output.
when you spin the armature ( Cycle spoke or Steal spoke), the E.M.F generate in the conductors which glows LED.
Here, we are going to step by step procedure.

Spool Generator.

Requirements:

  • Insulated copper wire around 26 SWG 400 turns (you may also use 35 SWG)
  • Neodymium strong magnets
  • Plumbing tape spool
  • 2 Safety pins or paper clip (same size)
  • Straw pieces
  • LED
  • Rubber piece
  • Straw pieces 

Procedure:

  • Turn 400 turns of 26 gage insulated copper wire around the empty spool of plumbing tape. (You may also use 800 turns of 35 SWG instead of 400 turns of 26 SWG)
  • Remove or scrape the insulation of the copper wire from both ends.
  • Connect an LED to the coil ends.
  • Tape two paper clips diametrically opposite on spool cover.
  • Poke steel stick through white rubber piece and glue strong magnets
  • Slip two loose straw pieces as bearings
  • Fix cover on spool
  • Spool generator ready
  • Spin to make LED glow.

  2. XAMPP Server For Free

    Nice Ideas, I become you fan bro

  3. Electric generators are helpful to provide us electricity when we are far away from city or when much electricity required. It is really a best idea and invention to know better about an electric generator. Thanks

  4. Very nice …can i ask ….you make a 400 turn to your prem… and 800 turn t your sec.. . How the voltage….its a 5v or 12 v… and the RPM…to the magnet…?<br />

  5. Very nice …..like like like….can i ask………<br />You make a 400 turn to your prem..<br />And 800 turn t your secon….<br />? What is the voltage..?

  6. This web site is very nice.

  7. Realy this is vest idea to understand the principle of generator or alternator. we can simply say that it is vest method to understand basic farade law of electromagnetic induction. thanks
