  2. Thank you very much for these series of videos! Really helpful and
    intertaining =) I have one question: How do you find time for doing all of
    that?

  4. I don’t understand why there’s minus2Ud in the Uo math scheme, while
    there’s 2 diods. is this about polarization?

  7. Man I cracked open a couple of beers ready to watch something random —
    some dude making a motor with a tin can… one hour later here I am in a
    head bake!!! Really interesting videos though and good work, cheers!!!

  8. Hey, I think you can make the turbine spin faster if you put in thinner and
    even more outer vanes. And then design the inner vanes to have more
    “scoops” to catch more wind and more efficiently. More fast = more
    electricity, yeah?

  10. I’m not going to build a generator, I’m just enjoying learning what I
    should have listened to at school.

  12. thanks for all the videos, they are awesome, but there is one thing you
    have to put in advance…13.9 v which is stored in cap. is the max. voltage
    not the average voltage because the 2nd have cycle will be off..the average
    voltage is calculated by “max voltage/PI”..and this is the value you can
    see on the multimeter if you connect the o/p directly to the
    load(resistance)..

  14. thumbs up!!! thanks for sharing this great videos and ideas you have. im
    lucky enough for my location here in the Philippines is quite a wind
    pathway out to china sea. when will the next video coming? more power to
    you and will to drive this project,,,, awesome

  19. Would having more magnets and coils be better than the generator itself
    turning faster? Like if you had a large turbine, would it be better to make
    a larger generator, or use a smaller gear than the turbine and increase the
    speed?

  21. Chris, your videos are exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thankyou. I have
    a few questions. 1) What size magnets are you using? 2) How do I configure
    magnets / coils to produce dc power? 3) Can I adapt your designs for use
    with some type of water wheel propulsion? 4) Would smaller guage wire and
    more windings provide more current? I already have a 12v 2500w inverter
    system with 4- 120w solar panels and 8 large 6v batteries. I have an
    abundant water pressure. What would you suggest?

  23. Just watched your videos, they’re great! A bit slow maybe, but what you
    show is really interesting. When is the next one coming? Keep up the good
    work!

  24. I can understand the time constrain, but you should surly have drive as so
    many people are waiting for it… :-).. also is there any alternative to
    magnets ? I saw in one video where he generated magnetic filed from just
    copper wires by giving some external power…dont exactly remember it.

  25. thanks for your reply Chris, how much power will it generate? I am not
    technical so answer in om or volts won’t tell me anything :) may be
    something like it can run a motor or ac or bulbs for entire house etc would
    be helpful …thanks again…you have inspired me to build one some day….
