3 Phase Stator for Axial Flux Wind Turbine project
DUE TO A BACKLOG OF ORDERS, WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING ORDERS FOR THIS ITEM. Please Email us for more information on when this alternator will be available again.
We offer this for those folks who want to build their own wind turbine but don't care to wind their coils or cast the stator, or for some perhaps this could serve as a replacement part.
This stator is wound with #16 gage wire. It has 9 coils and each coil has 130 turns in it. We use the same high grade 200 deg C magnet wire in these that we sell on the website. The coils are wired in 3 phase star configuration. They are cast in a mixture of vinyl ester and ATH (Aluminum trihydroxide)
The stator is 1/2 inch thick and 15.5 inches in diameter. The hole in the center is 5.75 inches in diameter. We do not drill out any holes for mounting but if youd like it drilled out to fit our stator bracket send us a note with your order and we'll do that. This stator fits machines that use magnets 2 inches tall (or diameter) fit to 12 inch diameter rotors. It's a perfect fit for the machines on our website at otherpower.com. It would work well with the older brake disc designs (so long as the brake disks are 12 inches in diameter) or our more recent ideas featured here: http://otherpower.com/turbineplans.html
With some slight changes to the mounting brackets, this stator would also work well with the 10 foot diameter machine featured in Hugh Piggotts plans 'How to build a Wind Turbine'.
We offer several different stators here so be sure this is suits your needs best. If you have any questions feel free to email us before you order.
This particular stator is well suited for a 48 volt system. The magnet rotors should be 12 inches in diameter and each rotor should have 12 of the 1 inch by 2 inch by half inch blocks installed. After you rectify the output to direct current, this stator should produce 48 Volts at 140 rpm. The blades should be 10 foot in diameter.
Pictured above is the power curve for an alternator built with this stator. That alternator has an airgap of .68 inches (the airgap is the distance between magnet rotors), 12 inch rotors, and a total of 24 1 inch by 2 inch by half inch N40 NdFeB magnets.
In our tests we believe this stator will be about 50% efficient at 700 Watts. Sustained output above about 700 Watts may overheat this stator so you should design your machine to furl before that point.
We do not drill any mounting holes in the stator. We figure folks might want to drill it out to suit their own frame work. If you would like us to drill this out so it fits the stator bracket in our metal work kits (see other products) just send us a note with the order and well do it for you!
We make these stators in our shop, which is located in the mountains of Colorado off the power grid. We are totally powered by homebrew wind power. These stators are hand made and cast in fairly primitive wooden molds. Sometimes we get air bubbles in the casting. If they are real ugly we fill them, but otherwise they are just a cosmetic defect. So please dont expect cosmetic perfection - were working on it but were not there yet!
We make these to order. We may not be able to ship stators for 2 weeks after your order so please keep that in mind! (most of the time were faster)
