  • Patent number: 6249058
    Abstract: A wind driven generator with counter-rotating armature and rotor is disclosed. In a first embodiment a rotor having magnets mounted thereon and an armature having windings disposed thereon are both coaxially mounted about a hollow pole. The hollow pole provides the structural support for maintaining the generator in a vertical attitude. Bearings are situated between the armature and pole, and between the rotor and the pole. A commutator and brushes is employed to conduct the power signal generated in the windings to electrical device. In a second embodiment, a rotor and armature are disposed about and rotatably mounted on a hollow pole as in the first embodiment with the hollow pole coaxially situated over a second vertical pole. The hollow pole is sized for sufficient clearance to allow the hollow pole to slide vertically on the second pole.
