Title (EN) THERMAL ENGINE FOR USE WITH NONCOMBUSTIBLE FUELS
(FR) MOTEUR THERMIQUE DESTINÉ À ÊTRE UTILISÉ AVEC DES CARBURANTS NON COMBUSTIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) A thermal engine includes a cylinder and piston and an insulated thermal battery including at least a thermal mass such as the engine block itself for storing and retaining heat to enhance or cause fluid expansion within the cylinder and drive the piston, the thermal battery optionally including an electrolyte chamber containing a thermal electrolyte for functioning as an electric thermal battery. Heat is stored in the thermal battery such as by activating electric resistance heating elements in the thermal mass. The stored heat either causes expansion of a non-combustible expansion fluid such as water or enhances the expansion of a combustible expansion fluid such as gasoline. Where the thermal battery is an electric thermal battery containing an electrolyte, the storage of heat also stores electricity which can be used to power an electric motor.
(FR) L'invention concerne un moteur thermique comprenant un cylindre, un piston et une batterie thermique isolée comportant au moins une masse thermique telle que le bloc moteur lui-même pour stocker et retenir de la chaleur afin d'améliorer ou de provoquer une expansion de fluide à l'intérieur du cylindre et d'entraîner le piston. La batterie thermique comprend éventuellement une chambre d'électrolyte contenant un électrolyte thermique pour fonctionner en tant que batterie thermique électrique. La chaleur est stockée dans la batterie thermique, par exemple par activation d'éléments chauffants à résistance électrique dans la masse thermique La chaleur stockée provoque soit l'expansion d'un fluide d'expansion non combustible tel que l'eau, soit améliore l'expansion d'un fluide d'expansion combustible tel que l'essence. Lorsque la batterie thermique est une batterie thermique électrique contenant un électrolyte, le stockage de chaleur stocke également de l'électricité qui peut être utilisée pour alimenter un moteur électrique.
