Hey I like the way you think! These transmissions work great under huge loads. Really They are from cotton pickers that could weigh 50000 pounds picking Cotton is muddy fields. Forward Reverse holding back power on stepp downhill roads. dont know if the are helical. I’ll check I out. With the size of my rotor I just don’t see a problem getting it moving. Lots of wing area and I can pitch for optimum. I want to see it turn in the lightest wind even if the generator is out of the gear train. I’ll have to do much reading on those permanent magnet generators alternators.Static friction to overcome from a standstill?
Helical gear reduction being run in reverse?
A magnetic load and bearings, no gears, could have less start-up drag. Except for "cogging" with permanent magnets, so powered rotor coil might have less drag (brushes would be drag, and magnetic remanence would be drag if not degaussed)
Big turbines are rotated into the wind by motors, and spun up by motors rather than by wind.
