  • should have at least a 4-pole revolving field. Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) provides “clean” power. Normal utility power is +/- 5% voltage regulation; our 1800-rpm models are even better +/- 2%! All of our models offer AVR – Automatic Voltage Regulation
  • Device that produces alternating current; an alternator.
  • In electricity generation, an electric generator is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy. The reverse conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy is done by a motor; motors and generators have many similarities.


  • An idea used to account for a situation or justify a course of action
  • a belief that can guide behavior; “the architect has a theory that more is less”; “they killed him on the theory that dead men tell no tales”
  • A supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, esp. one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained
  • A set of principles on which the practice of an activity is based
  • hypothesis: a tentative insight into the natural world; a concept that is not yet verified but that if true would explain certain facts or phenomena; “a scientific hypothesis that survives experimental testing becomes a scientific theory”; “he proposed a fresh theory of alkalis that later was
  • a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world; an organized system of accepted knowledge that applies in a variety of circumstances to explain a specific set of phenomena; “theories can incorporate facts and laws and tested hypotheses”; “true in fact and theory”

ac generator theory – AC Theory

AC Theory
AC Theory
Designed to provide readers with a thorough introduction to Alternating Current electrical characteristics and circuit construction, AC THEORY, 3rd edition explores the complexities of this more advanced circuit theory by building on the basics established in direct current theory. The book begins with an overview of the primary components of AC circuits, such as resistors, inductors, and capacitors, and then gradually introduces new, more complicated topics like applying AC principles in power generation and generators, parallel and combination circuits, troubleshooting and evaluation of circuit conditions, and more. With the same reader-friendly approach and practical examples that made previous editions so successful, this updated 3rd edition uses the most current technologies and trends to provide an ideal resource for anyone seeking a fundamental knowledge of AC theory.

Bangui Bay Windmills

Bangui Bay Windmills
This is the view to the east, with the Northern Luzon mountain range in the background, and the tip of Bangui Bay in the lower left. This image shows 9 of the 15 turbines of Bangui Bay.

These 15 wind turbines(called Vestas NM82) provide a total of almost 25 MW of power and is part of the Luzon Island grid in the Philippines. Height of these windmills is 70 meters. Each of the three blades has a length of 41 meters. The wind swept area of the rotors is approximately 5,280 square meters. Each windmill is 326 meters apart, almost 1/3 of a kilometer.

Location of the turbines is at Pebble Beach, on the shores of Bangui Bay, Ilocos Norte province. These turbines is the first power plant of its kind in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.

Jensen AC Generator

Jensen AC Generator
This small AC generator came with the Jensen Model 20 steam engine shown in the previous photos. One day I hope to drive this generator with the engine and light the small bulb on the lamp post.
