in actual practise a fluid coupling is used to connect with a gearbox in between and the whole assembly is placed in nascelle.

automatic trasmissions in cars have fluid couplings. Its a frictionless and non impact mechanism. its much more costly though. visit how stuff works things work at for more pictures and animated media on the same

In high school I built a simple belt driven wind mill generator. Not very effective for commercial usage though, laugh.

An unmodified automotive alternator probably needs to run at least 1500 to 2500 RPM. When it runs in its normal speed range (about 2000 to 10000 RPM), the voltage regulator that is designed to work with it keeps the output at the proper voltage for charging a 12 volt automotive battery (about 14 or 15 volts). I believe that the voltage regulator is usually in the alternator housing, but it may be mounted externally.

Um... the simplest method would be to drill a set holes into the drive shaft of the alternator for the blades and stick the blades into them.

Of course, there are better ways, but simplicity has it's place too.
