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...
1. An electrical power source for an aircraft, the electrical power source comprising: an aircraft including a housing with a toroidal cavity and a protrusion;a toroidal ring positioned in the toroidal cavity and including a notch receiving the protrusion, the toroidal ring providing a stabilizing effect on the aircraft; the toroidal cavity having an internal pressure that is less than standard atmospheric pressure;means on the protrusion for levitating the toroidal ring;means on the protrusion for rotating the toroidal ring to generate an amount of kine...
