Different Stator needed??

Hi, I hope you can help. I have bought 24 neodymium magnets 50mm x 25mm x 10mm. Unfortuneately their are magentised from end to end not face to face. Will this cause a problem using a standard style of stator/coil winding or will i need to wind some special kind. I only need 12v and about 100w.

Thanks in advance for any help/assistance.

Ouch! Those magnets will not work well at all. As far as I know you cannot make a stator to suit them. I suggest you get the right magnets...

Great question(s)! I don't know how hot the stator gets - I have never monitored it. Of course, there is a neat factor in that the hotter the stator gets, the harder the wind must be blowing, which means the stator is naturally cooled if it is exposed to the wind. Some like Greystoke on this forum will be the oen you need when it comes to formulas and working out the efficiency gain analytically.
