That must be a suggestion from American jerks. Servo motor is made for
precision drive, not for power generation.
In Belgium people look for size first for Wind Turbines?
In America people look for easy-way-out first like Bail-out, or weaken PMA
generator, that's Junk comparing to Alternator Power. Why do I like the
Alternator so much for Wind generator? It's been tested for many decades,
it outputs so much power, it's flexible. The only problem with American
dumbasses is they don't know how to interface with it, they blame the
alternator instead of their weak brains, don't chu know?

Since the man asked for someone to explain the windmill thing to him,
why didn't you just do that instead of changing the subject and doing
the America-bashing thing you love so dearly to get you off the hook?
I think the reason is that you can't.

John Fool, If you don't understand something, it's up to you to figure out.
People with the right mind don't blame on the object or other people, get
it right dumbass. Everybody is brought up differently, so don't expect
others to fit your routine dumbass.

A lot depends upon what you want to achieve with the wind generator. How
many watts/amps do you want to get out of it? How is the wind in your area?
Will the govment let you put up a tower without charging you more for
permits than you would save in electricity in 20 years? Do you want to use
something "off-the-shelf" or would you be interested in building an
alternator from scratch?
Some people have claimed success using a motor from a treadmill by simply
attaching some blades and putting it on a pivoting pole. I've seen several
treadmills for free or very little money on Craig's List that "needs a new
belt" or whatever.
If you want to start from scratch and are good at building stuff then you
might be interested in this: http://www.scoraigwind.com/pmgbooklet/itpmg.pdf
but you'd better hurry before someone who doesn't own the document removes
it so they can sell it.
I had some success using the permanant magnet alternator from a Honda
eu2000i generator that had a worn-out engine. Using blades made from PVC
pipe I was able to get a little over 10 amps with it sitting on a 9 foot
pole. I suspect that if it had better blades on a tall tower in a good wind
area it would be worthwhile. http://otherpower.com/blades.html
Somewhere I have the PVC blades saved but can't seem to find it right now.

In the interest of spoiling such attempts, I downloaded a copy for
archiving. If it's removed from scoraigwind.com, let me know and I'll
put it on my web site. Thanks for posting the link.
Hmm - it's never occurred to me that you could make blades from PVC
pipe. I'm not planning to build a wind plant, but I'm intrigued!
When you do find, I'd like to have a look.
