Is this a good motor for a wind turbine?
I've heard that for permanent magnet DC motors, it is good to have high volts/rpm because it is difficult to generate a lot of rpm with a wind turbine. I am thinking of building my own wind generator and am looking for a motor. I found a pellet stove auger gear motor that is 120 volts at 1 rpm. This sounds too good to be true since the examples I have seen other people use for their wind turbine motors are less than 50 volts and several hundred rpm. Am I missing something?
