Research Institution
At NOVATIO Engineering, our solution to this problem is practical, novel, proven at a smaller scale and now demonstrated at the 3 kW size range: conversion of a commercial lightweight gasoline generator to operate with diesel fuel or JP-8 in spark ignition mode. Prior to this Phase I SBIR effort, with the help of CERDEC funding, Novatio had developed and demonstrated a JP-8/DF-2-fueled 750W prototype based on the Honda EU1000i inverter gen-set. The enabling technology is a patented, low cost, compact and efficient system that can produce a conditioned on-demand stream of JP-8 fuel ready for operating with a standard lightweight Otto cycle (spark ignited) engine.
