Title
(EN) ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE CONVERSION D"ENERGIE
Abstract
(EN)
A thermal-mechanical energy converting device with at least two rotatably supported wheels and with one or more endless transmission elements (18) of a material having a memory effect capable in the bending mode of converting thermal energy into mechanical energy when heated from a temperature to a temperature above to transition temperature; the transmission elements (18) serve to drive one wheel (11) from the other wheel (15) upon application of thermal energy to the transmission elements (18), whereby the thermal energy is transferred from the other wheel (15) to the transmission elements (18) over at least a major portion of the circumferential contact of the transmission elements (18) with the other wheel (15).
(FR)
Un dispositif de conversion d"energie thermique en energie mecanique possede au moins deux roues rotatives avec un ou plusieurs elements de transmission sans fin (18) d"un materiau ayant un effet de memoire capable par flexion de convertir l"energie thermique en energie mecanique lorsqu"il est porte d"une temperature inferieure a sa temperature de transition a une temperature superieure a sa temperature de transition; les elements de transmission (18) servent a entrainer une roue (11) a partir de l"autre roue (15) en appliquant une energie thermique aux elements de transmission (18), transferant ainsi l"energie thermique de l"autre roue (15) aux elements de transmission (18) sur au moins la majeure partie de la circonference de contact des elements de transmission (18) avec l"autre roue (15).
