General Discussion / Direct drive using a wheel contacting the flywheel
« on: January 02, 2007, 05:56:09 PM »
I have done a search and found no discussion regarding this subject.
If I missed it please direct me as I don't want to duplicate an existing discussion.

I have seen a pnuematic starter that used an air motore to drive a wheel that was then applied TO the flywheel on a listeroid to turn it over for starting purposes.

Has anyone explored the possibility of using a similar strategy to deliver power FROM the motor to drive accessories such as generators, alternator, AC compressors, etc.

I know this is very dificult to do with high speed motors...but with an engine run at 650 rpm it might not be very difficult.

And the simple automation and RPM control it might allow has some intriguing possibilities.
