Example text

Permanent magnet alternators need no field coils, as they are permanently excited. Stator and Rotor Generators have two parts: a stationary part called the'stator' and a moving part called the 'rotor'. The stator is usually the outer part, encasing the machine, while the rotor is mounted on a rotating shaft in the middle (Fig. 2). The opposite arrangement is possible though, and in fact it is quite common in windmills. The shaft is fixed, and the case rotates on it. This arrangement is known as 'case driven' as opposed to the conventional 'shaft driven' arrangement.

A purpose built shroud, on the other hand, is likely to be expensive, ugly, and vulnerable to storms. Conclusion The options for clever rotor configurations are limited only by the extent of human folly, and they have all been tried! Making windmills is hard enough without adding unnecessary obstacles, so you are advised to use the most successful design, the three bladed upwind HAWT with a tip speed ratio of around six. This is the sort of rotor we shall look at in chapter four. 48 Windpower Workshop Chapter Four Blade Making This chapter explains how to make rotor blades.

If a blade breaks (as has been known to happen to most types of windmill), it may fly some distance, and could cause serious damage or injury. If you plan to site your windmill within 100 metres of any public areas, paths or inhabited buildings, then you should first satisfy yourself that the blades are sufficiently strong. Gyroscopic forces are the worst threat to small windmill rotors on turbulent sites. A fast running rotor, yawing to face changing winds, will suffer gyroscopic moments which alternately flap the blades back and forth once per revolution.
