Abstract
The proposed Phase II program seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of a patent-pending 6-cycle continuous combustion engine system technology that is a modification of existing 4-cycle engines to address engine related concerns in small generators as experienced by the United States Marine Corps and others. Concerns include wet-stacking, low efficiency at low loads, improved emissions capabilities (especially high sulfur fuels), and improved mulit-fuel capability. Phase I analysis showed promising results of thermodynamic efficiency, addressing the MC concerns, and in solving the technical challenges of the 6-cycle system. The Phase II program is in two parts: (1) design and develop a Proof-of-Concept operational prototype for demonstration and preliminary data collection by modifying the existing 4-cycle Yanmar diesel engine to demonstrate the potential capability of the 6-cycle system and for demonstration to potential engine manufacturers, and (2) improve the design to optimize engine performance to meet MC performance targets and to achieve a 100 hour operational capability. Additional focus will be placed on cost effective manufacturability of the components that are new for converting a 4-cycle engine to a 6-cycle engine for future commercialization.
