Very sly XL5, very sly.
i love this thread, i dont know why exactly, but its.....the most fun thread i guess, in that we're all
collaborating, people here and there are actually doing research, building things etc, infront of our eyes, well, computer screens.....
A gear and chain would be a good place to start actually. You know the whole concept of "if a large gear is connected to a small gear, the small gear
will spin much faster".
Perhaps that could increase electricity generation, if the electrical generator itself (sat at the side of the PMM, large gear) has a small gear and
thus spins faster, thus producing more electricity.
Oh and just so you know im only going to start construction (when i say construction, its only going to be the size of say.....a laserjet printer,
perhaps 40cm x 30cm x 25cm, ok perhaps a little bigger, but i wont know until i start building it), as i was saying i wont be building anything until
after xmas. It was presents for everyone, or PMM, so no competition.
Although it does give me time to fine tune the designs. I will need to make it so i can alter the angles of the magnets as well, which is a hell of a
lot cheaper than making angled parts and finding out its wrong. Its all about the fine tuning. Optimium magnetic repulsion angle, optimum torque etc.
That will be key in constructing a commercially viable model. If that is where it is wanted to go of course....
You think it would have to have a huge ATS logo on the side. LOL that would be soooo cool AND (for any mods) would be gooooddd publicityyyyy
