9 coils and 10 magnets?

I set off building a 12v wind turbine. This is my first project.

I started building the mould of a stator using Hugh Piggott

How many phases? If you are going for a three phases design I dont see how 9 and 10 can work. But if you post a diagram of the layout it will be clearer.

Some of the information I am trying to combine in order to build a generator that works is here.

Pages 46 and 48. Connection diagram as it appears on page 46 but with 9 coils instead of 6.

I thought of keeping the size of the coil appearing top right hand side of page 46. This size of coil fits perfectly the size of my magnets.

However, as I can easily fit 9 coils in the stator mould, (I made the mould big as I was working to an older design), I could increase the efficiency of the turbine. Do you think I should go for 12 magnets per rotor instead of 10?

The older document I based my stator mould is here;

P.8, list of materials, magnets too big and not very powerful.

Those are long documents to wade though!
It seems like 3 phase - if that is the case the relative layout of coils and magnets is crucial. You can't add magnets or coils to get more power. You need to either stick to a design, or understand how the phases of the stator interact with the magnet layout.

Hi Lgreco
I made a couple of drawing to sea if it will work as you can sea in the 12 mag and 9 coils there
is 3 coils that cut throw the mag that is the 1 set of the 3 phase and as it goes on the rest folow

and in the 8 mag and 6 coils gives the same example of it is 3 coils it is 2 coils so in my opinion you need more winds per coil to mike up for the volts

in a 10 mag and 9 coils you nead to treat each coil individual so you need at least 2 to 3 times the amount of winds per coil I hope it helps
