The Manmotor concept is to make it possible for a human being to produce electricity, gas fuel to cook with and keep warm, with the practicality of long term usage. One important fact that still remains unanswered is the fact that higher voltages work better for less in total volume cost. The answer I am looking for is when in time are we going to be able to impliment the usage of higher voltage household devices ? Essentially we already do in the form of the microwave oven whereas the electricity from the outlett is 110vac and then is converted inside the oven to higher voltages and broken up into little bits of frequency vibration. Well the higher the voltages the more dangerous the electricity becomes especially with the ability of delivering high current also. Practicality has forced this project once again to limits of efficiency due to the danger of high voltage, which is almost impossible to contain as seen in electrical storms of high voltage. So since we are stuck with the constant fundamental rules of electrical energy production which are Horsepower and Watts we need to figure out how a human beings energy can be amplified to give what I say an edge over the existing models of human energy to electrical energy devices.
How the Manmotor plans to accomplish this is to rotate a wheel with sufficient weight, rotating at an RPM to adequately produce an acceptable amount of electrical energy by impulsing loads at the load wheel while adjusting the speed of the hydrobalanced wheel automatically with fluid in porportion to the ability of the human being powering the device Manmotor.
After years of experience with rotating wheels as a heavy equipment mechanic and racing motorcycles, several facts about rotating mass in the form of wheels being rotated by an external force seems attractive to me as a mechanic trying to figure a way out to rotate a large mass in a way that is not really that exerting for a human being and desireable enough to keep that person wanting to continue operating the machine Manmotor.
The heavier it is, the slower you can rotate it before it flies apart. The heavier it is the harder it is to make it start rotating. The lighter it is the faster you can spin it before it flies apart. The faster you can spin a weighted wheel the more kinetic energy you can develop.
These four concepts are simply concepts to me regarding rotating weight, there are so many variables that affect the performance of kinetic energy storage wheels that even though these concepts are actually fact one cannot really understand how they work unless they have felt the situation in real life.
Mysteries of the rotating wheel
Ok, so now the concept(s) , the heavier it is. There are several variables on the weight issue for the wheel, and those are diameter of the round object, width of the round object, revolutions per second you anticipate to rotate the round object, and the positioning of the majority of the mass relative the center axis of rotation of the round object.
Example : I have a round disk made of metal 3" in diameter and one inch in width, I can spin it 10 thousand times per minute or 167 times each second. The wheel holds together and no problem spinning it 24 hours a day until the bearings fail. Now I have another round disk made of metal 8" in diameter and one inch in width and as I am spinning the disk through the rpm range to 10 thousand RPM, at 5 thousand RPM the 8" wheel flies into a thousand pieces all over the shop. So weight, displacement of that weight, diameter, and thickness all have an effect on the rotating mass as a solid structure. Additionally a power requirement to start the mass rotating and to continue rotating the mass is a factor also, however we are not concerned with the power requirement at this time, just simply the structural integrity of the rotating mass and it's ability to continue developing inertia for later usage as kinetic energy to generate electricity.
The RPM (revolutions per minute) or as we need to apply the math we need to break it down to RPS (revolutions per second) in this application, this is due to our end goal is to generate electricity using a human being to power the machine Manmotor. Electricity math is boken down to seconds and fractions of seconds and so right now we need to get used to breaking our power factors into the same denominations so seconds is the unit we will use.
Revolutions per second or RPS in further text is a dynamic function of the wheel, usually RPS or RPM are both an average
