A power source for a vehicle includes at least one toroidal ring positioned in a housing. The toroidal ring includes magnetic material such as permanent magnets. The toroidal ring is magnetically levitated in the housing. A propulsion winding is coupled with the housing and energizable via a power signal to move the toroidal ring. Once moving, the magnetic material and the propulsion winding cooperate to produce electrical power and/or provide a stabilizing effect for the vehicle. In some applications, such as in an aircraft application, two or more toro...
The invention claimed is: 1. An apparatus for powering a vehicle, the apparatus providing electrical power to the vehicle and providing stability to the vehicle, the apparatus comprising: a vehicle fuselage having a toroidal cavity with an internal pressure that is less than standard atmospheric pressure; a toroidal ring positioned in the toroidal cavity, the toroidal ring including a magnetic material; propulsion winding coupled with the fuselage and configured to generate an alternating magnetic field in the toroidal cavity to move the toroidal ring i...
