Utilization

Due to its simple construction the LCE offers a wide range of use.

The main goal of this project is to create a LCE suitable for hybrid vehicles.

This type of engine could serve mass production hybrid automobiles as an ideal power unit.

Furthermore the LCE could also be used for cogeneration unit.

Cogeneration unit are stationary generators, that produce electricity while using the excessive heat from cooling of engine for e.g. House heating.

Another LCE usage could be in power generators in locations with limited or non-existent electricity.

The main advantage of LCE for use in power generators in comparison with a common design generator that use rotary combustion engine and a rotary generator are:

  • a smaller, lighter and more compact design expectation
  • higher efficiency expectation
