Having a primary mover that turns kinetic energy of a heat engine, a wind turbine or some other kinetic energy source, sooner or later one wishes to transform that energy into a more convenient currency. Usually the energy of choice is electric energy and for that a generator needs to be available.
Permanent magnet generator is the one I am particularly fond of because of its relatively simple design and today very strong magnets are readily available for anyone to use.
This permanent magnet generator is robust and simple to assemble, however some parts need to be machined on a laser or water jet, but that is not a problem these days.
I wish you a lot of success with your assembly and have fun.
