I think this is how some ice cream vans produce power!! I have heard it's possible to do and glimpsed one too many years ago now to remember exactly what I saw...but I think I saw a generator connected to the vehicle (toyota coaster) motor...To power a soft serve ice cream machine usually requires a 10HP generator to operate smoothly...
Not sure if this is an on going thread. But what if there was a way to connect an electric motor to the alternator once it has been spun up (or prior to). Them some of the power generated from the alternator would continue to power the motor and letting any excess power continue to charge the battery. is that something that is possible and does this depend on the amount of energy that the electric motor consumes? If the motor is powerful enough to turn multiple Alternators at once would that resolve the issue? For Example, 1 electric motor turns 2 or more alternators the Electricty generated from one of the alternators would power the electric motor, and the other alternator would continuously charge a battery. which would continue to power whatever device or electronics that are involved. To start the motor a rechargable battery pack can be used.
