|Project Summary||Project Information|
Internal combustion (IC) engines lose too much energy to waste heat. In order to utilize waste heat and improve efficiency, water could be injected intermittent with fuel into an IC engine. The resulting production of steam would make harvesting of excess heat possible.
This project was created to provide the tools needed to understand the feasibility of such an engine. A test stand will be designed and built to make performance evaluation of a "hybrid" gas/steam engine possible. An existing IC engine will be slightly modified and used as an engine for benchmarking purposes.
The test stand must incorporate instrumentation to control inputs and measure outputs of a "hybrid" engine. The collected data will serve to improve the understanding and implementation of this technology. Specifically, the data should consist of power and efficiency as well as sensor information for optimization.
