I was bored in class the other day and I let my mind wander...
I thought, gee, why not take an inverter, hook it up to a good sized AC motor, and then attach the motor to a centrifugal supercharger housing? You could eliminate the */c lag that you would have if it was with a pulley, the motor turns on and WHOOSH! Instant psi. The only snag would be getting the boost to be proportional to the throttle. We have plenty of space in our engine bays to rig something like this up.
With this, you would have no HP draw from the engine to run it. You would probably need a bigger alternator, but Ty has us covered. It probably wouldnt work if you had a system, too much of a current draw.
Well, what do you guys think? Is it feasible? Possible Problems?
