Research Institution
Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes an ultra-compact JP-8 fueling system that will enable a lightweight spark-ignited engine as a man portable multi-fueled 1 1.5 kW generator. This is based on a breakthrough fueling technology that is different from vaporization approaches. This enables lightweight spark-ignited engines to use JP-8 for a wide variety of applications. The power unit is based on the modification and integration of commercially available engines and state of the art alternator, power electronics, combustion augmentation techniques, thermal management and packaging materials. Having met or exceeded all Phase objectives, the Phase II efforts seek to develop and demonstrate an advanced small, man portable multi-fueled (JP8 / DF2 / Gasoline), 1,000 - 1,500 W variable speed, load following power unit that can provide 120VAC and 28 VDC continuous output. This effort will provide enabling technology that to support initiatives towards the Armys Small Tactical Electric Power (STEP) objectives.
