Hello, I am a new member here and am having a problem as to finding the more effective way to power my el wire. For those that don't know el wire is a thin copper wire coated in a phosphor which glows when an alternating current is applied to it. My goal is to wrap my bicycle in about 5 metres of el wire and then power it using only the motion of the bicycle. The el wire will be powered by a 12v dc inverter that would create 105vac at 1000hz, my problem however is generating that 12v. Would I be able to use a 12v brushed dc motor rubbing against the side of the wheel to generate the 12v needed for the inverter? The motor I was looking at was: MOTOR 12/24V 4700/10000RPM 0.2A REVERSIBLE. Would a stepper motor be a better alternative? such as STEPPER MOTOR 12V 36R. Along with that here are some more specifications regarding el wire. The efficiency of the wire peaks at 100VAC but is still acceptable as low as 60VAC and starts tapering off above 120VAC. Power consumption is higher at higher frequencies. It seems to average 200mw/meter. Current consumption is averaging around .002 Amps per meter. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
