A Direct Drive Motor is a system of motors working in tandem to produce an increased degree of power from a generator. A Direct Drive Motor consists of the generator, or “base unit,” which holds the generator’s motor, and the motor’s output shaft, or “top” (the part of the motor housing that connects the generator’s motor to the base unit). Direct Drive Motors uses the torque, force, and motion from a single motor. They can be run continuously or intermittently, and are often the preferred method for most small to mid-sized engines because they are less complicated, have greater torque, and do not require expensive fuel filters.
The main difference between a Generator and Direct Drive Motor is that a generator uses a crankshaft to turn the electrical motor. This crankshaft, or “cable,” must be driven through a chain to the shaft of the generator motor (the “top”) and then back to the output shaft, where the force of the crankshaft is used to drive the generator’s motor. A Direct Drive Motor is different, as the generator itself does not drive the motor, but instead the motion of the Direct Drive Motor drives the generator itself.
Direct Drive Motors is commonly used for boats, airplanes, and automobiles. Most car engines are designed to work as Direct Drive Motors, which means they are based on the same basic design. A car’s engine utilizes the force of the engine crank to turn the engine’s motor. Since most cars do not require fuel filters, an individual can choose a battery operated engine for their car. A single direct drive motor will often be able to power a number of car engines at the same time.
A Direct Drive Motor is also more efficient than a Generator when using electrical energy. Because a Direct Drive Motor does not need to use gasoline to generate its force, it uses up less fuel. It also uses less fuel than a Generator, and because it requires no fuel, it does not emit any pollutants into the environment when it is running.
Direct Drive Motors is often chosen over the benefits of a Generator when an engine does not need to be modified to run a vehicle, or when the vehicle cannot fit with a conventional generator because of the size or weight of the engine. For example, if a car has a transmission on it that can not fit onto a standard vehicle, such as a stick shift or automatic transmission, a Direct Drive Motor would be the better choice. A Direct Drive Motor does not require a transmission. because all the torque comes from the Engine, rather than from a transmission.
A Direct Motor, whether used in conjunction with a generator, or as a stand alone, is an easy and effective way to increase the power of an engine. In addition, a Direct Drive Motor is a better choice because the generator only needs to work with a converter in order to get an engine to operate.
