Question by brpeterson44: What is the difference between a gas driven generator and a wind driven generator?
I am looking to make a wind driven generator. My thoughts are that if I buy a gas driven generator it has all the converters and such so I can just plug in and go.I can adapt it to wind. I can buy a gas generator without a motor. Or does the gas driven one have to much torque compared to a wind generator?
I hope this makes some sense.
Answer by Sean J The first point is that a wind generator only produces electricity when the wind blows. So some means of storage such as batteries would be required.
