How to build a Simple Homemade Wind Generator from Old Ceiling Fan ,Microwave Oven Parts ,Old TV Antenna and other free junk

    This project goes over the build of a homemade wind generator built from random junk ceiling fan ,microwave oven transformer ,office chair, an old piece of a TV tower, and some random electrical stuff. The blades are also from an old ceiling fan .It is extended with some wood and fibreglass on it to make it stronger.

    A scrap piece of pipe is attached as a shaft to the hub of the turbine. An office chair frame which can move freely is welded to the pole/post of the turbine. This is welded to an old TV Tower.

    4 magnets are glued on the hub. The frame of an old microwave oven transformer is cut .Its core is exposed and that is welded onto the brackets. The magnets pass over the transformer core and induction takes place creating electric current. We can use that current to charge a battery or to power lights or whatever. A multi transformer setup would generate more power.

    We hook up a rectifying diode to convert from AC to DC and some capacitors which can even out the voltage and give us direct current. Also a diode to block the current from the battery to go up back up to the generator. This set up can charge small batteries.

    A piece of sheet metal is welded onto the bracket of the ceiling fan. Four magnets are spaced apart and aligned along their respective poles in north-south directions and glued to the bracket using 2 part epoxy.

    To generate more wattage from the wind generator ,we use an old 120V DC lawnmower motor. Because we have multiple poles, we have magnets that are really close to the armature, this is a way better motor to use. The only downfall of this is that it has brushes, eventually it’s the brushes are going to wear out, you probably get a few years out of it before you need to replace those. This motor would probably put out about 100 watts.

    • DIY Video : How to Generate FREE POWER by building a Homemade Waterwheel Microhydro System from Start to Finish
      This Video Series shows step by step on How you can provide enough electricity for one house by building a Micro Hydro water wheel electric generator .Not only you will no longer dependent on the power grid, but you’ll have electricity when SHTF and more important: absolutely FREE.Unlike solar panels, a water wheel electric generator can produce electricity 24/7.Simply,the flowing, dropping water is spinning a wheel .The wheel shaft it’s connected to a simple coil generator that produces electricity. If you don’t need electricity you may adapt the water wheel to grind grain, to cut wood, strengthen iron or to sharpen tools. Anyway you choose to use it, a water wheel is an important installation when living off the grid or when SHTF.
