Relation between RPM, coils and kW-output in electrical generator

  1. Jan 22, 2010 #1
    Hi,
    new to the forum here
    I have this bike-engine here and I am thinking whether it would be possible to mount it to an electrical generator. The thing is it easily hits RPM's up to 13000.
    My question is if I make a magnet spinning at lets say 10k rpm what poweroutput are we talking then. Could it melt the coil, how densly winded does that coil have to be and so on.
    I am not interested in a 220V home and office output. Its for transfering mechanical input to mechanical output via electricity. This is the plan:

    engine--electrical generator----------------electromotor--wheels

    Is it worth considering or not?

    thx in advance,
    Bert
