    Breadmaker motor, is it generator? 110V DC

    I have pulled a few of these apart & put them aside & noticed it again.

    Its got 110 V DC 50 W . on the side of it.



    So I put a LED into the wire sockets & turn it around & the LED lights up .

    Actually it was a NZ 240V DC motor. So I guess I can make more power from it.

    All I have to do is give the shaft a good twist with my fingers & the LED brightens up, but the shaft stops quickly & the Led dies. I can see if I push it too hard it will blow the LED.

    I think these would be a great way to get into home power production. Ok, its not a lot of power, but its on scale with bigger units & could be made to charge up some batterys in random areas if you have to do that, without taking up much space.

    After all, its a breadmaker, they don't have much else on them (actually its all Ali, copper & tin, not much plastic) & we get them often enough.
    best pic of one I can find at the moment.

    Any permanent magnet motor can be used as an AC generator, just by driving it instead of it being a driver. I think the most difficult thing to do would be to control the speed so as to get 60 cycle current, especially under variable load conditions.

    speed is not the way to get 60 hz ac from a permanent magnet generator. to get that it only can turn 60 times per second. Due to the slow speed you sacrifice voltage and consequently current. The other two variables are fixed, cant increase the strength of a permanent magnets magnetic field and cant add more turns of wire to a already built generator.

    Probably the best way to get 60 hz from it is to convert to dc and run it through a dc to ac converter.

    use mirrors out of a dlp tv to focus them on a metal chamber made from bbq smokers with one of those motors hooked to a fan blade inside-steam powered turbine

    Motors or generators require a magnetic field to operate. This can be obtained from current through a winding or a permanent magnet.
