Question
HI
I HAS PERCHASE 500W/12VAC WIND TURBINE MOTOR ITS WIRRING IS 3-PHASE DELTA TYPE CONNECTION IT IS ONLY PMG HAVE 12 NEODYMIUM MAGNETS  .I OPEN IT AND ALL WIRE CONNECTION CAME OUT FROM ITS BODY TOTAL SIX WIRES ARE COME OUT .NOW I WANT WIND MOTOR IS RUNNING ON ONE PHASE WHILE OTHER TWO PHASE USE AS BATTERY CHARGER  EITHER IT IS POSSIBLE   THANKS
REGARDS.

Answer
When the winding has 6 leads coming out you can connect it either star or delta connection, with 1.73 times voltage difference.
You can connect it in star, and then from one line to neutral point will be 1.73 less voltage.
Ideally you want to have balanced load on each phase, so split your loads evenly
