On this thread I will be adding ideas on generating wheels, anything that turns.

First up the Star Wheel or 369 StarGen.

This first idea I thought of about a year ago and could be implemented in small or large scale. Instead of a magnet passing a thick iron or iron laminate core with a big fat pick up coil wound over it, the idea behind this wheel is to spread out the core and coil them individually winding only one layer per laminate. The individual winds will increase the voltage and the number of coils on laminates then paralleled will determine the amperage. The distribution of the laminate will also spread out any excess drag on the rotating magnets.

The outer drive wheel (9) takes advantage of leverage to turn the magnet ring as shown in side view of the drawing. But maybe the drive wheel does not have to be as high as in the drawing. The higher you go, the faster you need to run to obtain a decent rpm at the magnet radius. The magnet passage influences the coils from both sides of the magnets.

The idea is to use the output from the center (3) or the outer (6) coils to run the drive coils (9).

A simplified version could be done with a 3D printer. Another on the wish list. Not only the toy but the time to master it.

Small scale single laminate and coil experiments could be done with a rotating magnet to define the best way to wind the coil and even try core end bends to favor impress in one direction over the other.

Hope this gives some ideas.
