Abstract
The objective of this project is to build and deliver to the Army two prototype systems that will verify a reduction in fuel consumption by at least 30% and reduce weight by at least 30%, when compared to a currently fielded system. The design presented in this proposal is expected to reduce fuel consumption by over 40% and weight by 58%. These dramatic reductions are attributed to 3 system features: 1) A process that recovers and uses waste heat from the engine to improve overall system efficiency, 2) A system design that integrates the waste heat recovery with a refrigeration cycle, using a common working fluid to simplify system design and maximize system efficiencies, and 3) A unique, compact engine design that is much smaller and lighter than a traditional Diesel engine.
