- Apr 5, 2002Where does one learn about the tesla turbine an how to build it?----- Original Message -----From: Mike PasserottiSent: Thursday, April 04, 2002 1:56 PMSubject: [TeslaTurbine] FlywheelI've noted that there is much energy in the amount of mass spinning in a TT.
The larger the disk pack, the more energy stored. I read an article on
flywheel stored energy. Got me thinking - higher rpm, higher velocity fluid
stream, magnetic bearings, composite materials able to handle steam - pretty
Surely, some of you noticed how long it takes to spin down a TT. Thats a
lot of energy return thats usable and should be put into the equation of
energy return when considering efficiencies (especially if you take into
account the energy expense of spinning up the rotar).
Anyone else putting the flywheel notion to TT? I don't recall anyone
touting high rpms typical in flywheels.
