Title (EN) GEROTOR APPARATUS FOR A QUASI-ISOTHERMAL BRAYTON CYCLE ENGINE
(FR) APPAREIL A ROTOR DENTE POUR MOTEUR A CYCLE DE BRAYTON QUASI ISOTHERME
Abstract:
(EN) According to one embodiment of the invention, a gerotor apparatus includes an outer gerotor (46) having an outer gerotor chamber, an inner gerotor, at least a portion of which is disposed within the outer gerotor chamber, and a synchronizing apparatus (66, 67) operable to control the rotation of the inner gerotor relative to the outer gerotor. The inner gerotor includes one or more entrance passages operable to communicate a lubricant into the outer gerotor chamber. According to another embodiment, a gap between the end of the gerotor and a valve plate (8) may be adjusted by means piloted by a proximity sensor (80).
(FR) Selon un mode de réalisation de l'invention, un appareil à rotor denté comprend un rotor denté externe dans une enceinte extérieure à rotor denté, un rotor denté interne, une partie duquel, au moins, est disposée à l'intérieur de la chambre externe à rotor denté, et un appareil de synchronisation permettant de commander la rotation du rotor denté interne par rapport au rotor denté externe. Le rotor denté interne comprend un ou plusieurs conduits d'entrée permettant d'envoyer un lubrifiant dans la chambre externe à rotor denté.
