For Propulsion Applications It Is Possible to Utilize Both the Torque Output of the Rotor and the Reactional Torque Acting on the Stator of the Driving Electric Motor by Linearizing the Stator
Abstract: This paper presents a novel idea of utilizing the reactional torque of the conventional electric motor as a linear output for propulsion in addition to the conventional torque output of the rotor. The idea is demonstrated by a theoretical proposal of linearizing the stator of one of the most used motors in Electrical Vehicles and Hybrid Vehicles. The proposed Linear Stator Motor is a simple modification without involving any functional change of the conventional motor. Though theoretical, the indicated possible input energy saving of more than 75% as compared to the conventional motor is no surprise, as by linearizing the stator, an almost equal linear propulsion output is added to the conventional rotor output. In addition to this remarkable saving in input energy, the proposed Linear Stator Motor that suits all types of vehicles, can maintain propulsion without the need for a mechanical transmission system. Also, in the case of watercraft and aircraft vehicles, no external mechanical propulsion drive system is required. It is just an internal force that can push the vehicle forward, backward, or laterally, while the conventional rotor output can be utilized for energy recovery by driving a DC generator.
