Performance simulation of a spark ignited free-piston engine generator

  title={Performance simulation of a spark ignited free-piston engine generator},
  author={R. Mikalsen and Anthony Paul Roskilly},
Free-piston engines are under investigation by a number of research groups worldwide due to potential fuel efficiency and engine emissions advantages. The free-piston engine generator, in which a linear electric generator is fixed to the mover to produce electric power, has been proposed as an alternative prime mover for hybrid-electric vehicles. This paper investigates the performance of a spark ignited free-piston engine generator and compares it to a conventional engine using a computational… CONTINUE READING
