The presented pulse motor generator generates Ac voltage. The input pulse current passes through a input coil iron less (bobbin) specifically positioned. The power wheel is composed of a fidget spinner with iron insertions and three neodymium magnet discs disposed N-N-N. The reed switch is positioned on the input coil The pulse motor generator is powered with two small solar panels. The reed switch is actuated by bringing a magnet near it. Once the magnet is pulled away from the switch, the reed switch will go back to its original position.

Materials used to build pulse motor generator:
1.fidget spinner with iron insertions -- the flywheel

Details :
Voltage: 5V
Power: 1.2W
Current: 240 mA
Material: Monocrystalline
Size: 110 x 69mm
4. Step-up Module with adjustable booster power supply module

  • AeroSemi MT3608 1.2MHz 2A Step Up Converter
  • 2A maximum output current
  • 2.0 to 24VDC input voltage range
  • 28V maximum output voltage (trimpot adjustable)
  • 93% peak efficiency (~200mA output current at 5Vin, 12Vout)
  • 36 x 17 x 14mm
5. Coil iron less from a syncronous motor 230 V -- used to "capture" the magnetic flux gnerated by the pulse motorimage description

6.bobbin -- coil iron less used to produce a repulsive force

Hi @sciencetoolbar , I noticed that the webpage you've linked to in a few of your posts is no longer active. I think folks would be interested in learning a little more about your process, so I'd like to encourage you (if you're interested!) to add any of your supporting materials or additional content to your posts here-- the majority of the people using this site are working with environmental monitoring kits, but I think that power generation (especially alternative or DIY forms of power generation) is a really meaningful topic for people to consider, especially if they're thinking about ways to keep their tools running when they're out in the field, or attempting to collect data in a situation where usual sources of electricity are inaccessible. I'd be very interested to hear if you've been thinking about any specific ways that these generators might be used by others. Thanks for sharing!

Hello ! - the website page It will be available in a few days ( a small hosting problem.... ) I am looking forward to improve the eficiency of the small generator, the presented layout it is a starting point. thx st
