Research Institution
At NOVATIO Engineering, our solution to this problem is practical and novel (and proven at a smaller scale): conversion of a lightweight gasoline generator to operate with diesel fuel or JP-8 in spark ignition mode. During the past year, with the help of CERDEC funding, Novatio has developed and demonstrated a JP-8/DF-2-fueled 900W prototype based on the EU1000i inverter gen-set. In the Novatio prototype, diesel or JP-8 fuel is aerosolized into very fine droplets (<1 micron), thus enabling pre-mixing of fuel and air that is required for operation in spark ignited mode. The enabling technology is patented low cost, compact and efficient means to produce an on-demand aerosolized stream of fuel ready for mixing with air for Otto cycle operation and that can readily be scaled up to the 3 kW size range.
