A generator consist of a engine and a alternator and electricty can be generated. Why can,t you just replace the the egine with a electric motor and draw the same electricity from the genenrating alternator.Purpetual motion is trying to get energy from nothing.Can the above question be decribe as purpetual motion. The two components namely the motor and the alternator need two different types. The motor needs electric energy(AC) and the alternator needs kenetic energy(Energy of movement).The motor produces kenetic energy and the Alternator produces electric energy.Why can,t we use the two to produce electric energy?
Re: Can a electric motor be used as a primary mover to spin a alternator.
