Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive motors are very similar to Golden Motors hub motors but can be got for nothing :)

Applications:
•Wind generators
•Microhydroelectricgenerators
•Exercise bike generator
•Motor driven generator
•Scalelectricset generator
•Electric motor drive

I have seen a few articles about using these Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive washing machine motors as a starting point to make a wind generator. Once modified it looks to be a great inexpensive means to make electricity."This Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive Permanent Magnet motor is comprised of a hub, stator, main shaft, two bearings and a bearing holder. The Stator is stationary and comprised of 42 wound coils. The ends of the windings are easily accessible for re-wiring. Since this doesn’t have brushes, when the hub is spun it actually becomes an alternator producing AC
Fisher and Paykel Generators/Alternators.

Fisher and Paykel are an Australian and New Zealand company that make white goods and are available around the world. As part of their range they make a type of washing machine called the 'Smart Drive', which has a great motor, which they call the "Direct Drive Motor". Make a great wind generator
            

Someone at some point discovered that these also make near perfect generators with great efficiencies, especially at lower speeds. These have also been found to have numerous other advantages.
•They can tolerate large amp loads so do not easily burn out.
•They are easily convertible for whatever voltage you require.
•They have a stainless steel, toothed shaft for easily attaching your driving mechanism.
•And they have great corrosion resistance as they are designed to be used in washing machines and thus exposed to water on occasion.
•And best of all, if you live in an area in which they are sold, people usually are throwing them out once the washing machine breaks down, so you can get them for free or next to nothing.

STREET LIGHT POLE USED FOR WINDMIL :)L

YOU CAN GET OLD STREET LIGHT POLES FROM SCRAP YARDS CHEAP :o

USE 2'' GALVERNISED WATER PIPE FOR THE HINGED ARM 2/3 THE LENTH OF THE  LIGHT POLE ???

USE ROPE TO RAISE AND LOWER WINDMILL FOR MAINTENANCE ;)

YOU CAN USE OLD CEILNG FAN BLABES FOR YOUR WINDMILL  :D

YOU CAN EVEN MAKE EXTESIONS AND ADD TO BLADE LENTH ;D

Well guy.... I'm selling all my Turbine stuff so far... Motor... Blades... Neo Magnets for Yaw... My city wont let me put it up, even if it was UL approved... What a joke... :(

I seem to recall seeing some designs that sneak past
code enforcement.

No sir, it's Art.  You aren't against Art are you?

Check out the following. They may be able to be used where large propellor type wind generators are not.

I'm not in anyway connected with this product, I just saw it and thought others would find it interesting.

Here is a quick concept of speed and regulation controll.





I just thought of this but you could replace the heater with peltier cooling modules.  This could work on cooling any parts that may get hot when the wind picks up.

I have one circuit based with peltier coolers in the making. works great for ebikes BTW.  Why not turn execess regen into fridgid cold temperature and burn a crap load of watts at the same time.

Bring it on
