How to make wind turbine copper coils yourself stator do it yourself cheap DIY

how to make PERFECT copper coils for wind turbines. I have taken the best of several ideas and put them all together on this video on how to make, tight, do it yourself, dyi, winding copper coils on a stator of a generator, of the wind turbine. I use magnent copper wire. This will worke on vertical and horizontal turbines. the rotor will be the next step. Build your own copper coil machine.

Putting the wind turbine charge controllers, the FlexMax solar charge controllers and re-arranging the board for the new 24v 5Kw inverter plus the new automatic transfer panel from Generac.

    now what? how do I create electricity? ;)

    This may be dumb but why did u do 110 rounds

    Guys, making your own home energy doesn’t need to be difficult (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Search a alternative home energy called Xobotano Home Energy (google it). Seriously, Xobotano Home Energy has save a large amount of my money. I probably should not even be talking about it because I do not want a bunch of other guys out there running the same “game” but whatever, I am in a great mood today so I’ll share the wealth haha.

    where do you buy big rolls of copper wire

  5. MrHarvey1301 says:

    ahah dammit i did this and didn’t pre-cut the tape dammit, why don’t you say it at the start of the video jesussss

  6. mareenamallory says:

    What kind of wire did you use. The more specific the better please!

  7. luciferslight100 says:

    wheres the best place to buy that wire

  8. wadebankston says:

    I used 16 gauge wire. use enamel coated or it will short out.

  9. wadebankston says:

    use enamel–it will short out if you don’t.

  10. Wowaniac says:

    so what gauge wire is that? you would have to use enamle coated wire or it defeats the idea of what your trying to do.

  11. templedog69 says:

    can we use unenameable wire? Does it really short out?

  12. DiversIFun says:

    Do NOT use round coils. The magnetic flux only creates electricity when the wire is perpendicular to the movement of the magnet. The in/outside edges of a round coil do not create power. An oval works much better with the curves outside the magnet. The straight wire catches as much power as possible.

  13. ExquisiteRainImports says:

    Electric drill makes the process a hellovalot quicker . Can pump out several quality coils in no time.

  14. giftsfromtheholyland says:

    great job brother ,  what is the thickness on the copper , and where can I get it
    do you have a video how you build the wind generator ?!!

  16. KyleCarrington says:

    Thanks for your help. hope you keep building as well. I wonder if you’ve ever though of making a small HAWT with mags on the outer rim of an alloy MTB rim, coils around the outer perimeter, such to emulate / copy the honeywell WT6500. It’s ridiculously expensive, over 5 grand, but almost looks like you could DIY.

  17. Myreply59 says:

    (2 of 2 ).. Then there is the space between the coil surface and the magnet. It should not be more than 1/8th apart. This means higher induction of the coil. I wish you well in your endeavors.

  18. Myreply59 says:

    Yes. I never knew about that until seeing it as a btw to a video about making coils for a wind turbine. The maximum flux point is like an eclipse where the peak is at full strength when it is equal on all points to the coil. Also, the coil thickness shouldn’t be more than one and a half times the thickness of the magnet width. This is to allow full saturation of the coil. So square coils for square magnets and so on. (1 of 2)..

  19. KyleCarrington says:

    Is this to allow The voltage to hit zero for a moment, – before – it passes over the other side of the coil, ensuring induction?

  20. Myreply59 says:

    Just to say, I worked a long time at a wire production plant and we tried it all there. The best way is to add enough tension so the the wire will wind evenly and smoothly. The tension should be applied only to the wire and not the spool so that the clothe acts like you holding it between your thumb and finger.

  21. Myreply59 says:

    The only problem with doing it this way is that with each turn there is a twist in the wire and that causes problems with small thin wire. A better way is to wind it so the wire goes from the spool to the winding directly. Also, apply tension to the wire coming off the spool and not the spool. Use clothe tied to some string nailed to the bench. It will unspool evenly and not wind too tightly.

  22. Myreply59 says:

    The diameter of the coil hole should be the size of the neo so that you get the maximum flux.

    where do i buy this wire? (please answer…) ….. and how much does it cost???

  25. econewpower says:

    It would cost me too much to switch now, my inverter costs about $2,500 and they only make it up to 48volts. I do have a backup inverter which is 36 volts in case my main inverter fails.

  26. econewpower says:

    That is a called a desulfator, you can order one from eBay, the name of the company is Battery Life Saver…or BLS

    Hi. Great video. Whats the name of that yellow and black box that extends the batteries life 3X, Desault fader? where can I get one. Thanks so much!

  29. ciaranbrennan16 says:

    Whats the yellow and black box next to the batteries??

  30. hamieh1 says:

    hi,why dont you make it 72 volts battery bank ? that will increase your hours of usage ,and decrease the loss of amps between 24 volts to 120 or 220 volts ,.i have a 72 volts battery bank its much better from 12 and 24 volts and im thinking to make it 120 v battery bank ,

  32. volvo09 says:

    You can’t revive a worn out lead acid, the lead plates turn to a sediment / powder and settle on the bottom of the battery as part of it’s normal lifecycle. No way to revive it, when it’s gone, it’s gone.

  33. econewpower says:

    I don’t recommend used batteries, even if you revive them the loss of the lead from the plates is so large that they won’t hold a charge very long or last very long. Get new real deep cycle batteries if you can. Better a few good ones than many mediocre ones.

  34. Bestundesun says:

    Do you advice if I buy the Lead acid battery for cheap which are dead and revive them and use them as doing so will be cheaper.

  35. Bestundesun says:

    Can you let me know the equipment and the company they belong to ??

  36. MrMagicseeds says:

    ive already bought a 400w wind turbine and 2000w inverter im just thinking now eather get another 400w turbine for £230 or 250w solar panel for £270 ?? i dont know what to get i need which ever will produce most electric for the money

  38. econewpower says:

    Yes, technology is changing rapidly for sure

  39. spunkyprep says:

    Have you had the chance to check out Unisolar strips? I’m seeing them on ebay for $199 at a claimed output of 124v. From what i’m seeing, that may be a solution to the ‘breakage’ conundrum.

  40. econewpower says:

    Never had a single bit of problem out of my turbines, those things just keep going strong. You did the right thing getting the HY-1000, in normal winds of around 12mph you’ll be getting around 300 watts out of its 1000 watt rating, of course the power rises very quickly as the wind picks up. Get another 1,000 that’s what I did, the 400 output is too low in moderate wind.

  41. TheMoonrakers says:

    Hi, now that you have had some time using the Windmax turbines, do you still consider them a quality unit? I have a new Windmax 1000w 24V turbine in transit to me that I was able to purchase at a descent price. My original plan was to install two Windmax 400w 12V turbines, as I believe I read somewhere that they have a faster start up in lower wind speeds? Now that I have the 1000w coming, would I be better off putting up two additional two 400w turbines or an additional 1000w. Thanks! Paul

  42. econewpower says:

    @AussieHomestead I can carry more power with smaller wires, fuses, etc. Essentially I can lower my overall AMP load while increasing my WATT load.

  43. bridgetroll9 says:

    Use the solar cells to create and store hydrogen. Purchase a quality gas generator suitable to your energy needs. Convert the generator to burn hydrogen. Wire the generator to feed the main breaker panel.

    Then inform the electric company to remove their property from your residence or legal action will be taken.

  44. OrlandoSystems says:

    Hi and thank you for your reply.
    We are getting 12v from the Cells and will deliver 15kw of 220V/60 hz or 380V triphase. For purpose of reliability, I cannot do anything in series. only paralell. This unit will power a Sea Water Desal unit in Africa (if we can finish the Solar unit). The Solar system will use the Batteries as Buffer and a Diesel Generator as a UPS, in daytime. Rgds, Theo. Orlando Systems.

  45. econewpower says:

    Assuming you’ll wire for 48 volts (I would), then you would end up with four banks of 6 batteries in series each and then the four banks connected in parallel. That will give you 3,312 Amps but at 50% draw you’ll have 1,656 amps usable power which at 48volts equals 79.488 KW. If you plan on using that much in 24 hours then you’ll need a 4KW inverter. The rest is simple just choosing which circuits to wire to a transfer panel with sufficient circuits.

  46. OrlandoSystems says:

    Hi, nice set-up
    I am working on a 15kw, 70 panels, 250w each, Mobile System. I can use some help to figure this one out. I have the offer for panels (SBM), the batteries (VALENCE) but I am stuck on the Inverters and Integration, 220Volt/60Hz. The system is divided in 14 racks of 5 panels each, about 40″ x 80″ per panel. We plant about 24 batteries, at 138ah, for 2hours UPS minimum.
    Your video and install is very professional. I had no time to visit the Great Banks Yet. Tks.

    Got to various web sites for solar power like wholesalesolar, sunelec, etc and they have complete kits of various sizes so you can now pick your price and your wattage. God bless you
