How can an car alternator be used as a wind generator?
I am talking about an electric car alternator, an electric alternator needs a current first to generate magnet, then the rotating magnet generates electricity. In the wind power case, at the beginning, there is no electricity to generate magnet, how to make electricity?

An alternator is already a generator (i do believe it is a DC current, since that's what a car's battery runs on). All you need to do is mount it higher, remove the wheel that the belt goes onto, and connect the alternator to a voltage regulator and a battery. If you want to connect it to your house to help ease your electric bill, you need an AC power inverter. Here are a few helpful pages:
