Watch our latest New Turbine Workshop video on YouTube: "NTW Micro-wind turbine project: Permanent magnet alternator basics" by Ken Rieli.
"The most important part of wind turbine design is the right alternator that will deliver electrical current at low speeds." - New Turbine Workshop instructor Ken Rieli demonstrates how to replace an electromagnet rotor (60% efficiency) in automotive alternator with a super PM permanent magnet rotor (up to 98% efficiency) for his micro-wind turbine.
