generator/motor configuration
« on: June 17, 2006, 04:26:05 AM »
I have this got this idea.  I have been kicking it around for about 5 years.  It is based on a gyroscope.   Take a bunch of rare earth magnets and orginize them around the circumferance of the gyroscope. Get this mass up to about 500lbs and spin it at about 10,000rpms.  This may be a bit obtuse, but I like the idea of the force that these numbers produce.  Instead of a conventional generator arrangement, it is more like a linear motor (such as those found on a maglev train) in the round. The coils are stationary and the magnets move to eliminate electrical loss at the brushes etc. and keeping the magnets cool.  Like a gyroscope follows Newton's laws of motion so would this motor, so it wouldn't take a whole lot of force to keep it going, say? a 60 mph breeze that one might find going down the highway?.  There is a motor to match.  If this sounds like a feasibility, even hypothetically, and you can help me? please do!!!!    I don't even know where to start even building a model.
