Dear all,

I have been looking in vain now for a source that explains in a slightly patronizing non-caffeine manner (the dummy part) the very
fundamentals of calculating electrical generators - i.e. the formulas
that let me know how many windings of what material will result in
what voltage, and so on - all the way to a small simple functional
hobby generator (possibly powered by having my neighbours dog run in
circles in the backyard).

What I am looking for are the basic formulas and how they interconnect that allows me to model in an excel sheet the different ways to build a small-scale generator without actually having to build it (the lazy bit).

I am not an electrical engineer and have read the first chapters in Giblisco's Electricity and Electronics.

Pew!
