Claims

1. An energy transfer system (100) consisting:

a plurality of rotatable drive input shafts (108) of an input side, each having a drive receiving end (110) and a second end (112), the drive receiving end (110) being operatively coupled to a plurality of drive sources (102);

a rotatable drive output shaft (120) of the input side, operatively coupled to a pinion

(116);

characterized in that

a plurality of rolling friction gears (114) coupled to the second end (112) of the plurality of the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side, the plurality of rolling friction gears (114) having circular gear teeth that mesh with circular gear teeth of the pinion (116) for transferring rotating movements of the plurality of the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side into rotating movement of the rotatable drive output shaft (120) of the input side, wherein each of the plurality of the rolling friction gears (114) houses a freewheeling clutch (118) acting upon the pinion (116); and

an energy storage medium (122) configured to store energy generated from the rotating movement of the rotatable drive output shaft (120) of the input side, wherein the energy storage medium (122) drives a plurality of driven sources operatively coupled through a rotatable output shaft (202) of an output side.

2. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1, wherein the plurality of drive sources (102) includes one of a pedal, a solar panel, regenerative braking, wind, and fluid.

3. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1, wherein the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side are coupled to the plurality of drive sources (102) through one of a turbine, a wheel, a sprocket, and a motor.

4. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1, wherein the rotatable drive output shaft (120) of the input side is coupled to one of a continuous variable transmission and a planetary gear.

5. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1, wherein the plurality of rolling friction gears are one of rolling friction spur gears, rolling friction helical gears, rolling friction bevel gears, and rolling friction rack and pinion gears.

6. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1, wherein meshing of the circular gear teeth of the rolling friction gears (114) with the circular gear teeth of a pinion form a single point of friction contact, thereby transmitting rotating movements of the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side to the rotatable drive output shaft (120) of the input side.

7. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1 consists a flywheel operatively coupled to the rotatable drive output shaft (120) of the input side to store energy generated by the plurality of the drive sources (102).

8. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1, wherein the freewheeling clutch (118) selectively engages and disengages the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side and the pinion (116).

9. The energy transfer system (100) as claimed in claim 1, wherein the freewheeling clutch (118) is operatively interposed between each of the plurality of the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side and the pinion (116) to effect driving engagement therebetween and to disengage the plurality of the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side and the pinion (116) for freewheeling operation when the pinion (116) overruns the plurality of the rotatable drive input shafts (108) of the input side.
