An electromagnetic fully flexible valve actuator (FFVA) for internal combustion engines is described which offers the potential for significant improvements in fuel economy, emissions, and performance, especially at low end torque, in internal combustion engines. The FFVA offers variable lift and timing combined with controllable seating velocity. It operates on a design principle distinct from existing actuators: the electromagnetic actuator exerts appreciable bidirectional force throughout… CONTINUE READING
