    Scope & content"This manual describes how to build a 'permanent magnet generator' (PMG). We can
    also call it an 'alternator', because it generates alternating current (AC). It will not
    generate 'mains voltage' or 'utility power' AC. It generates low voltage, 'three phase'
    AC, and then changes it into 'direct current' (DC) for charging a 12 volt battery."
