possible ac motor generator? Answered

anybody tried machining strong magnets into the armature of say 10 or 20 hp 3 phase motor. do not  know the output if any but if so then running through a transformer that might have output  of  220 that is actually useable for living, working in a garage. i understand it would have to be overdriven  possibly by multiple blades for torque to reach the ness speed. just curious if you think it might work or not be worth the effort. this is a new field for me.

Three AC capacitors will turn an over driven 3ph Motor into a 3ph AC Generator.

I used it to supplement a house heater

I saw one on the net once; where a person put microwave magnets in a car alternator armature for a wind turbine.

If you Google

permanent magnet alternator armature

You will find hundreds of pages including 3 phase motors.

Not sure what your trying to do. Just drive a generator with your motor BUT you will put IN more energy than you get OUT.

Your idea isn't going to be more effecient.
