The Gas Generator Engine - A New Family of Internal Combustion Engines 920060

This paper makes the case for the gas generator engine - a type of compounded engines - as a potential future automotive engine. The existing gas generator engines are characterized by their mediocre performance and fuel economy. The case for the new gas generator engine is based on a proposed cycle principle, which achieves simultaneous improvements in thermal efficiency and power output/weight ratio. This very attractive engineering solution may transform the mediocre existing engines into new engines of exceptional promise, which merit serious consideration.
