Turtle Hello - New to the forum - New Mod idea

After reading quite a bit... .. Had an idea..

Has anyone tried to replace a standard alternator with a maglev turbine type alternator/generator?

It would probably have to be a custom wound maglev using the same idea...but for higher rpm's.. and a custom set of pulleys.

They make them both vertical & horizontal now.. but it would provide an almost frictionless spin. Some of the 100lb - 200 lb versions produce 5-10kw at rated speeds (low rpms) .. and at high voltages. So the lighter ones .. might have some value in this kind of experimentation.

They have the new ones down to 2 m/s .. almost frictionless.

Anyway! Great forum,
