A question for Generator Stator Design.?

How or what does a designer of Altenators or Generators use to figure out what wire to use in a Stator Coil to Produce 28 volts and 120 Volts. Is there a Chart or Formula to use?

Not sure if there's a chart per se, but with respect to stator windings, the more turns you have, the higher the voltage output is. The required ampacity will help determine the wire size.

The strength of the field is also a factor in the design. At maximum field current, the alternator/generator must be able to supply rated current out of the stator windings at rated voltage and power factor. Here's an interesting page that discusses some of the requirements for design:


There's an awful lot to it, more than I realized until reading that webpage...
