How To Build A Magnetic Generator Motor

The internet is awash with information about magnetic generators. Some information is true, while other sources may be erroneous.

Proponents of the magnetic generator say that it is the ultimate answer to the biting energy deficits, while others profess that the motor does not have any feasible chance of working at full scale - because of its supposed violation of physics laws.

The truth is that magnetic generators have been studied from as far back as the 13th century, when the first known magnetic motor is said to have been built.

Over the years, there’s been a lot of interest in magnetic generators as a viable source of electricity, and as technology advanced, more efficient designs have been built. Although much work remains to be done, there are feasible designs of building a magnetic motor. Here are instructions on how to build a simple magnetic generator motor:

Position a wheel on an inclined axis - this will be the inner wheel. The wheel should be of a material that is non-conductive.

Affix some magnets - preferably ceramic bar magnets - evenly along the wheel’s rim. Ensure that for all the magnets, the same poles are facing out.

You will then fix an outer ring on top of the inner ring. The outer ring should also be made of a non-conductive material.

Follow it up by placing in-ward facing magnets along the outer fixed ring of the generator. Then it’s time to start generating some power.

Spin the inner wheel of the generator.  As it reaches its highest point of revolution, the in-ward facing magnets on the outer ring will push it into a continuous spinning motion - opposing force of same polarity magnets. Allow the wheel to continue spinning and increase speed; when a conducting material, such as copper wire or coil, is introduced into the moving magnetic field, an electric current will be generated.


As seen from a rudimentary set up of a magnetic generator, it only takes a few magnets and conducting wires to make one, thus, it is extremely cheap to build. A home production scale motor will set you back a measly $100 in parts.

In addition to buying parts cheaply, there are no maintenance costs that come with it, so if your set up is up to standards, then you should expect smooth running for years.

Also, it’s clear from the demonstration that magnetic generators are machines that generate electricity purely from mechanical energy, with not much input other than setting the magnets in motion. Thus, the generator is capable of producing electricity in any condition as long as the magnets are spinning.

Another obvious benefit is that the generator is a clean source of  energy. With the rate at which greenhouse gases from other energy sources are warming up the planet, magnetic generators should indeed offer a sigh of relief to the environment.

Again, who wouldn’t want to slash their monthly energy bill? Although you will not be able to power your entire home with a magnetic generator, given the current limitations, using it for smaller power needs will scale down your bill by at least 10 percent; not really bad in these economic times.
