I recently built a vertical wind generator and understand some of the basics. Now I picked up this motor for a mere $200 and would like to use it to make a large wind generator. I'm having trouble determining whether or not it will be suitable for a wind generator. I have checked the ohms on a few combinations of the eight or so wires coming of it of it. The highest I've found so far is .8 ohms. When I hook my voltmeter to those two leads and spin it by hand I only get about .5v - .8v . Thoughts? Ideas?
