I have a DC motor generator (basically the motor spins, and it powers an LED at the moment), and the output current (mA range) and voltage is very unstable.
For an entire circuit to run on the motor-used-as-generator's power, is it possible to stabilize the voltage and current of the output. The output voltage must be 5V and I am not concerned with current, no matter how low.
My circuit is made of, literally, a motor and a wheel of magnets.
The motor generates spikes up to a miximum of 0.97V and lowest 0.3V. My plan is to attach multiple wheels, then have three of the three wheeled motors, have theses circuits attached to a op-amp, and then simply charge a battery my multimeter broke, so I can't test the three wheels or the current until I get a new one
The project is for a competition and we need to use minimum number of parts, under 100 individual components.
