    I'm looking for feedback on an idea I have of a generator. The normal generator works by spinning a magnet in a copper field pushing electrons and generating current.
    The amount of electricity produced relies on the revolutions per second and the coils on the generator. My idea is to have a ring of rod electro magnets there which will be switching polarity using H bridge since for electro magnets switching current directions also switches polarity. doing this in phase with the magnet adjacent with some remaing off can cause waves of magnetism to push the electons.
    With the addition that if it works the speed can go substancially higher than any mechanical (steam, hydro, wind) turbine with the quick switching speed of computing.
    I'm looking for feedback preferably constructive critism if I havent struck gold

    I'm not sure I get the idea. It seems like you want to generate electricity without turning a rotor, but just have an electrical input. If such is the case, then it isn't a generator. A generator converts mechanical energy to electrical.

    What advantages do you think there would be if you generated electricity at a higher frequency?

    Where does the power for these come from?

    You have just described electronic commutation of a brushless DC motor. They work in both motoring and generating mode.
