Re: Quadracycles

Pedaling is a low rpm that is for a large diameter pulley down to the small pulley that connects to the alternator. This make the rpm step up and while the size ration for the input that we give for pedaling is easy we still can get quite a few watts from doing so.

Automotive Alternators

Retrofitting a Car Alternator for Low-Speed Power Generation

Lots of good design stuff in the document. Data table for input to field coil circuit to the voltage that it can generate. The standard coil windings for the output coils are setup as a 3 phase spreading out of them around the stator air gap shell. The core finger are used to turn the coil field into alternating magnetic fields for the motion of the shaft to create ac in the stator coils. If you can get the unit appart you can rewire the coils to create the design that you want.
