Re: Flywheel magnet strength

Having the magnetic flux flow back and forth through the iron cores of the coils would help to keep the electrons aligned in the magnets, a magnet is only weak if there are electrons who do not fall in line. Recharging is just convincing the ones who are not inline to get in the right direction.

I would figure the quality of the magnets for our use would be gauged by the initial strength, their ability to recharge would be a consideration as well as how long they would retain the boost in strength.

This discussion is leading me to think that perhaps I should pull a bunch of Novi 120x magneto flywheels and do some measuring and figuring :)
