Free-piston engines (FPE), as power generators for electricity and hydropower solutions, have come under intensive research and development during the last decade. The rapid development of information technology provides an opportunity to return to FPE technology development due to better levels of control and management in terms of the engine’s work. What is more, changed environmental requirements are imposing stricter conditions upon the development of internal combustion engines. More… Expand
