Pulse-jet MGU-H

Could an F1 type MGUH turbo be used like this to power hub-mounted K units?

That sound would be epic with 20 cars on the starting grid...

Maybe I should have said "It's the car, and not Hamilton", and I would have gotten some play.🙄

If and when F1 rules will permit to use turboprop engines maybe.
I'm still learning English so please excuse me if my English is not good enough and feel free to correct me via PM if you want.

It would be excellent! And as you are using the ‘engine’ to purely generate electricity it could be run at its most efficient rpm.
Common sense is not as common as stupidity, but it is better to be uninformed than to be mis-informed...

Rover/BTM entered a turbine in Le Mans (not pulse jet, but I thought I would post it anyway)

at the trivial power of F1 a free-piston engine/linear generator would be (much) more efficient
if kept generator-only it wouldn't need to limit the cycle rate so wouldn't sound like a big-block V8

Strictly speaking the photo in the first post isn't a pulse jet either.

Whatevs.

Running 2 of these in a car with twin MGUH could be bad a55.

I had speculated earlier that if they didn't have the 100kg fuel limit, (still keep flow limit of 100kg/h) they might run a little extra fuel, to dump into the exhaust when off throttle. Using an antilag system to keep the MGU-H spinning.

Running mini-jet engines to drive the MGU-H would not be a great idea I think. I don't think jet engines sound particularly good, its just a bunch of very loud white noise.

Dont know if this fits in the engine or aero section,but it is propulsion, so i put it here




Dont know if it could be adapted to assist an F1 car?
