Environmentally Friendly and Efficient Energy Transmission
Region:Northwestern Ontario
City:thunderbay, ON
School:Sir Winston Churchill C.V.I.
Abstract:Environmentally friendly and efficient energy transmission uses wooden wheels and permanent magnets to transmit torque between an input and output shaft without any mechanical contact. There is no wear and no lubrication is required. The contactless gears are environmentally friendly as these lead to savings in green house gas emissions, and can be used in many energy saving devices, such as windmills and hybrid cars.
