Magnetic Reed Switch Triggered by 32 Rotor Magnets by Konehead

a tricky(?) circuit for generator coils which create power from a permanent magnet rotor passing by them, such as an example, a Bill Muller design of generator as shown on link #16 on this site.. Basically, you "short" the generator coil by connecting the lead wires of the generator coil together. With this simple circuit, you will get X20 voltage in the capacitor as compared to having no shorting of the coil this at the peaks of the sinewave produced by the magnets passing by coil.
