Samsung Smart drive 36 pole / X13 Generator
The smart drive is a 36 pole that has been reconfigured as 6X2C star with Two X13 ECM 18 poles 1 hp motors used as pm alternators rated at 11.5 amps each with a 1 to 1 ratio. Using a 1'' wide 3/8'' pitch belt and the amp meter scale 1=10 . Going to add two more X13 ECM's and i will add a100# flywheel to be mounted on the main shaft.
So what it looks like he has is an all permanent magnet motor/generator setup. Can't imagine it would loop, but...? Maybe? There must be some motivation to connect a motor to a generator this way, unless he's just tinkering for grins and giggles. Could be this is just another one of those expensive hobbies he has--kind of like us. :-P
If it does loop, my only guess is that somehow you get a torque advantage using the big out-runner hub motor. Either that or there is a conversion between DC and 3-phase I'm not aware of.
Anyway, kind of a novel approach to an old experiment. Maybe someone out there has these parts laying around collecting dust. Might be worth sticking them together and see what you get.
