Hello, I am new to the forum but figured I could ask some intelligent people about an idea that has been bugging me. Here goes... I am trying to make a generator that is run by an electric motor but the electric motor runs off the generator head at the same time. The way I see it is this... Run a battery bank with an inverter to start the initial spin of a high horsepower electric motor with proper pulley or gear sizing to get the desired rpms. Once the motor starts running and starts spinning the 10kw generator head, have a transfer switch kick the power from the generator head over to the electric motor to supply power to it, so it no longer is running off the battery bank and powers itself so to speak. Now I know there is the whole perpetual motion thing and the two laws and thermodynamics but if you have a generator head large enough to supply a sufficient amount of power to keep the motor running while still having enough room to power electronics you want to run off the head, would it work? Is this possible? If not please explain.
