Can a vacuum cleaner motor generate electricity?
I have a vacuum cleaner motor that runs off straight AC from the wall. I think it's like 120 V AC right?.. anyways it's got a huge amount of toque and i'd like to attach it to a stationary bicycle and pedal it to generate electricity. I know all the instructables for this my only quam is the type of motor. I'm not buying one. This is what I have and furthermore I don't even know if it's like universal i guess they call them..I do know that it is a brushed engine (as in it's not brushless) by the way if you haven't caught it yet my electrical jargin is very weak. Thanks for any help you can give me.-Ask me if you need more info.
