Are you trying to use an electric motor to power a bunch of alternators?

I hope not...

If you're using a gas motor, sure, it can be done, but it won't really get you anywhere, other than using another engine to power your alternators, leaving your original engine free of that load.

Not sure why you'd want to do that, though.

If you're thinking about a way to use alternators at higher load (so they're more efficient), you can just do that with a kill switch on the alt field. No need for anything else to be done. When your battery gets down to about 65% charge, you charge it back up to 85% charge, then repeat.

Other than those things, I'm not entirely sure that even you know what you're trying to do, unless you're just really having a problem with getting the words out correctly so that we all understand it. I mean no offense, it just seems like you're not totally sure what you want here.
