    I everyone. :)

    As you guys might know I'm on a bit of a project-spree at the moment, particulary with electrical based engineering projects.

    A few months ago, me and my dad were restoring an old A-series engine, which is now nearly finished.

    However, rather than just letting it sit there until it is needed for something, I thought it might be cool to use it for a couple of experiments. Which lead me to think about constructing a generator.

    Please understand that I will not be using it to power the house, or anything crazy like that. This is just to do short experiments with, to learn from experience.

    So that leads me to me question, does anyone know of any good websites which have equations needed for generator and dynamo design? I have tried to look for myself, but alas I cannot seem to find any.

    Thanks in advance for your time,
