Permanent Magnet Generator


Permanent Magnet Generator Wiki


Wikipedia doesn't have much useful information about permanent magnet generators (PMG's). If you look at the wiki page it simply has a one sentence definition and then lists some advantages and disadvantages of the permanent magnet generator. The notable advantages being the high efficiency in terms of input and cost.


Because permanent magnet generators use strong neodymium magnets to power the turbine, they are super efficient. The permanent magnet generator is not to be confused with the Tesla Turbine or Magnet Motor which both run without any external energy input, thereby producing free magnetic energy.


Permanent Magnet Generator Design


The
most common use for the permanent magnet generator is in wind turbines for the home. PMG's are used to convert the wind energy into electrical energy. The PMG is placed behind the blades, attached and mounted to the main unit. These PMGs usually come in a strong casing to protect them from the elements and corrosion.


Here's a quick run down of the design.


Inside the PMG, you will find multiple neodymium magnets (also known as NdFeB, NIB, or Neo magnet). These magnets are comprised mainly of Neodymium and are basically high-grade rare earth magnets which are the most effective permanent magnets on the planet.


It consists of a hardened steel shaft which is covered with a protective paint. The magnetic rotor is totally covered and sealed with a epoxy coating, and usually contains sealed bearings so the PMG can spin. The permanent magnet generator is usually contained within a hardened steel casing, sometimes also with aluminium components.

Permanent Magnet Generator For Sale


Unfortunately there are not too many places where you can walk in and buy a permanent magnet generator. Currently there is not any large scale production of these types of generators anywhere in the world. However, there are lots of small scale businesses and engineering firms who produce PMGs.


The best place to start looking is on Amazon, eBay and Ametek. Amazon is the most highly recommended place to get PMGs because of the excellent feedback system and credibility of the site. Amazon has a very strict application and screening process for vendors to sell products. Continued below....

Permanent Magnet Generators Renewable Energy


As mentioned above the permanent magnet generator is not a free energy device.


The Tesla Turbine (also known as the Magnet Motor or Tesla Generator), is a true free energy magnetic perpetual motion device which runs continuously solely on magnetic energy.


The main difference between the permanent magnet generator and the magnet motor is that the PMG requires an external energy source to power the turbine. usually in the form of wind power, steam or electrical current.


The Magnet Motor requires no external power supply, using the magnetic power of the internal magnets to create a source of free energy.

Permanent Magnet Generator DIY


While it is quite possible to make your own permanent magnet generator, it does require some quite intense engineering. So if you don't have access to some heavy machinery, lathes and welding equipment then you're best bet is to buy a new one or look for parts and put it together yourself.


Here are two very comprehensive projects by very reputable universities which have constructed permanent magnet generators; the first one is from Ohio State University and the second one is from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
