# Alternation of Magnet Poles in DC and AC Generators

I want to create a generator. The current design I am looking at has several magnets along a wheel, with coils around the outside of the wheel. The wheel then spins generating current.

I know that if I alternate the poles of the magnets, I will be generating AC Current.

So my question is, If instead of alternating the poles of the magnets, If I have all the same poles facing out, while I then be generating DC pulses instead of AC?
