Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
I was wondering if i could remove the generator from the motor and use the generator for a wind turbine i m building what s your thoughts Thanks
1) You'd have to figure out a way to support the engine end of the rotor. Right now the engine rear main bearing is the front bearing of the generator.
2) You'd need to make a wind turbine that produces 6+ horsepower (at least) to get the 5 Kw out of it.
Usually small wind turbines drive polyphase generators that charge batteries used to run inverters. Go see: http://www.otherpower.com/otherpower_wind.html for a pretty good discussion of the problems to solve.
