  • STUDY AND REALIZATION OF A SYSTEM OF ENERGY TRANSFORMATION PROVIDED BY A RECTILINEAR MOTOR INTO ENERGY PROVIDED IN THE FORM OF A CIRCULAR MOVEMENT OF VARIABLE SPEED

Abstract

The objective of the research was the realisation and the experimentation on the bench and then on an independent mobile platform of a kinematic chain system comprising: + an internal rectilinear combustion engine. This engine is characterized by its good thermodynamic output and its capacity to directly transform its thermic energy into electric energy whilst dispensing with the connecting rod crank system. + electric engines with variable reluctance installed in the engine wheels. These engines are characterized by strong couples and good ability to regulate speed. + electronic driving and regulating mechanism. Thus realized and tested, the system has permitted a global output of 26%. This is lower than predicted but could be improved by increasing the electric and thermic output of the chain.
