what is unique, about a (2nd-class) lever that does not stop turning?

firstly, it must be said that -- it will be the height of human obtuseness, if the validity of this concept is never evaluated.

secondly, the answer to the question is: a rotary 2nd-class lever, easily, 'becomes' a Driven-wheel.

see at 1:35, in this very old YT video; the basis of gears, etc., is leverage. aka Mechanical Advantage. MA.

the common practice of using number of teeth as a way of describing gears, obscures a Fact.
it is -- the fundamental dimension of a circle, gear, etc., is its RADIUS. not its circumference.

MA is the Result when, gears/wheels having Different Radii, interact.

in modern times, as a result of its compactness, the use of close-ratio gearing is favored.

BUT, in this case, compactness IS NOT a design priority,

in the case of an energy processing transform, there Must be one stage of atypically, high ratio reduction.

so that, reduction-MA is converted to Inherent MA; inherent in a single wheel having a much larger radius.

at utility scales, any number of high-speed drive motors can be utilized, with a single driven-wheel.

at larger scales, step-up stage(s) could be utilized, at the output shaft. there will be unavoidable losses, at any step-up stage(s).

this is not an issue. output power will be evaluated, based on: watts IN and watts OUT.

energy at either end of the transform, will be watts-electrical.

where energy is 'in the form of' rotary motion, the domain is Scalar. this Fact is BIG. it is Suggestive.

depending on scale, any number of high-speed drive motors can be utilized, with a single large driven-wheel.

more watts in Should equal, more watts Out (near the center of rotation.).

if interested, see my YT tutorials.
