技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及发动机动力领域,明确说,涉及介电蒸汽混合发动机系统。 [0001] The present invention relates to the field of power of the engine, specifically, to a dielectric steam hybrid engine system. 背景技术 Background technique

[0002] 能够满足和甚至超过现代机动车性能要求的蒸汽发动机至少从20世纪20年代中期和20世纪30年代早期,Abner Doble开展了对用于操作几种机动车蒸汽发动机的机构(锅炉、鼓风机、活塞、齿轮、阀、等等)的改革时就已经知道。 [0002] at least meet and even exceed the mid 1920s and early 1930s, Abner Doble performance requirements of modern motor vehicles steam engines carried out on several means for operating the steam engine of the motor vehicle (boiler blower when reform pistons, gears, valves, etc.) are already known. 他还在20世纪50年代早期的几年研制了“Paxton Phoenix Project”蒸汽赛车,该蒸汽赛车由McCulIochMotors Corporation(当今以链锯等而闻名)开发。 He also developed a few years earlier "Paxton Phoenix Project" steam car in the 1950s, the steam car (at today's known for chain saws, etc.) developed by the McCulIochMotors Corporation. 然而,在ftx)jectPhoenix(也使用汽油作为其燃料源)中强调的是生产高性能赛车,该高性能赛车可超过现有内燃机设计;做功涉及比20世纪30年代的汽车高得多的发动机压力和温度,甚至比生产当今一般使用的车辆所必需的大得多。 However, in ftx) jectPhoenix (also uses gasoline as its fuel source) is highlighted in the production of high-performance car, the car may be a high-performance over existing engine design; relates work vehicle 20 is much higher than 1930's engine pressure and temperature, even more than today's vehicle production is generally necessary to use much larger.

[0003] Blau的美国专利6,379,962描述了一种蒸汽发动机,其中,蒸汽由高频无线电波能量和机动车辆的电池电气驱动系统产生。 [0003] Blau U.S. Patent No. 6,379,962 describes a steam engine, wherein the steam generated by the battery electric drive system and the high-frequency radio wave energy of the motor vehicle. 它描述到,机动车辆驱动系统部分地包括:蒸汽发动机、非燃烧高频无线电波生成装置,主要是来自磁力仪的无线电微波,用于加热水以产生供给所述蒸汽发动机的蒸汽;电源装置,用于将电力提供给所述非燃烧高频无线电波加热装置;及另外的电气发动机驱动装置,在由所述蒸汽发动机推进之前,为所述机动车辆提供初始推进。 It is described that, in part, a motor vehicle drive system comprising: a steam engine, a high-frequency radio wave non-combustion generating means mainly from microwave radio magnetometer for heating water to generate steam supplied to the steam engine; power supply device, It means for providing power to the non-burning high-frequency radio wave heating device; and a further electric motor drive means by said steam prior to advancing engine, to provide an initial propulsion of the motor vehicle. Blau提出的方法在其启动与它可将足够的“工作蒸汽”提供给蒸汽发动机的点之间具有显著的时间滞后,因此它要求补充电动机的使用以填补这些间隙。 Blau proposed method has a significant time lag between the point at which it can be sufficient to start the "working steam" supplied to the steam engine, it requires the use of supplemental motor to fill these gaps.

[0004] Fasanello 的美国专利申请公布2003/0230446A1 和2004/006M99A1 描述了一种电气-蒸汽推进系统。 [0004] Fasanello US Patent Application Publication 2003 / 0230446A1 and 2004 / 006M99A1 describes an electric - steam propulsion system. Fasanello采用他称作“闪蒸”型加热元件锅炉的用于煮沸液体的装置。 Fasanello using he called "flash" type boiler heating element means for boiling a liquid. Fasanello描述的“闪蒸”型锅炉包括盘绕管系统,并且具有固有限制和危害,这些固有限制和危害不是本发明的限制。 "Flash" boiler Fasanello described herein includes coiled tubing system, and has inherent limitations and hazards, these limitations are not inherent limitations and hazards of the present invention. 例如,这些“闪蒸”型锅炉完全依赖于电阻加热元件的使用, 这些电阻加热元件必须利用在比希望蒸汽温度显著高的温度下的热传递表面,这是不希望的。 For example, "flash" boiler completely dependent on the resistance heating element, which resistance heating elements must be used in higher than desired hot steam temperature at a temperature significantly higher transfer surface, which is not desirable. 这样的单元的效率取决于热传递效率,热传递效率又高度取决于热传递表面,并且随着水流增大而急剧减小,这又要求大量电力以继续加热过程。 Efficiency of such a cell depends on the heat transfer efficiency, heat transfer efficiency and highly dependent on the heat transfer surface and decreases rapidly as the flow increases, which in turn requires a lot of power to continue the heating process. 随着增加的使用,由于水闪蒸成蒸汽,矿物质被留下并且按烧固“水垢”的形式沉积在热的热传递表面上。 With the increasing use of flash to steam because the water, and minerals is left in the form of baked "scale" is deposited on the heat transfer surface of the heat. 这些沉积物进一步降低热传递效率。 These deposits further reduce the heat transfer efficiency.

[0005] 发动机专家已长期地认识到,蒸汽发动机比汽油发动机简单,并且在性能特性方面在机动车中是优越的,这些性能特性包括:离开静止位置的巨大按需转矩、低得多的发动机转速、少得多的热、几乎没有噪声、高巡航速度、在低速下的较大功率和牵引力、快速和平稳的加速(这免除了对于齿轮或传动装置的需要)、少得多的运动零件、简单得多的设计、 较便宜的材料、及不严格得多的公差。 [0005] engine experts have long recognized that the steam engine is simpler than a gasoline engine, and is in a motor vehicle in superior performance characteristics, these performance features include: a huge demand torque of a resting position, much lower engine speed, much less heat, little noise, high cruising speed, higher power at low speed and traction, rapid and smooth acceleration (which eliminates the need for gears or gearing), much less movement parts, much simpler design, less expensive materials, and far less stringent tolerances. 然而,即使当在20世纪50年代进行较多努力以复兴和发展蒸汽动力赛车时,蒸汽汽车发动机设计(它们毫无疑问是一流的)简单地不能克服与它们的复杂汽油燃烧器和锅炉相关的基本问题。 However, even when carried out many efforts in the 1950s to the revival and development of steam power when racing, automotive steam engine design (which no doubt is superb) simply can not overcome the complexities associated with their petrol burner and boiler fundamental issue. 在过去90年期间,蒸汽汽车发动机设计的底线一直是:它们仍然需要汽油向它们的高温火焰燃烧器供给动力,并且在使它们现代化时的每次尝试都以锅炉机构为基础。 During the past 90 years, the steam automobile engine design has been the bottom line is: they still need gasoline to power their high-temperature flame to the burner, and make every attempt to modernize their institutions are based in a boiler.

[0006] 相应地,需要这样的系统,在这些系统中,可使既不使用汽油也不使用其它化石燃料的蒸汽发动机更加实用、可负担和高效,以用于向诸如汽车和卡车的现代车辆供给动力, 以及用于目前由内燃机进行的其它用途。 [0006] Accordingly, a need for a system, in these systems, can neither petrol nor other fossil fuels steam engines more practical, affordable and efficient, such as for cars and trucks to modern vehicles power supply, and other uses currently used by the engine.


[0007] 相应地,本发明提供这样的系统,通过这些系统,蒸汽发动机的优越特性(该蒸汽发动机被现代材料、制造技术、及其间几年的发动机革新更新)可按能量高效和实用方式利用和使用,以用于向诸如汽车和卡车的现代车辆供给动力。 [0007] Accordingly, the present invention provides such a system, the superior properties of these systems, the steam engine (the steam engine is updated range of modern materials, manufacturing techniques, and the engine a few years) can be energy efficient and practical manner using and using, for the modern vehicles such as powered cars and trucks. 通过将电源切换到可充电电池并用电气蒸汽发生器替换旧式燃烧器和锅炉手段(该电气蒸汽发生器煮沸介电液体以产生蒸汽并维持工作蒸汽储量),同时保持蒸汽发动机的简单性、原始动力及高性能,本发明提供所述优点的唯一组合,以提供一种实用和高效的介电-蒸汽混合发动机。 By switching the power to the rechargeable battery and replace the old burner and boiler by means of an electrical steam generator (electric steam generator to boil the dielectric liquid to produce steam and the steam reserve sustain operation), while maintaining the simplicity of the steam engine, the original power and high-performance, the present invention provides a unique combination of advantages, to provide a practical and efficient dielectric - steam hybrid engine.

[0008] 本发明涉及一种新颖和非显而易见的设计,该设计组合三种根本不同技术的元件,以便产生一种具有优于较早机动车蒸汽发动机设计的改进性能的介电-蒸汽混合发动机。 [0008] The present invention relates to a novel and unobvious design that a combination of three elements fundamentally different techniques to produce an improved dielectric performance than earlier designs of the steam engine of the motor vehicle - steam hybrid engine . 本发明消除来自车辆的污染,因为它不要求化石燃料的使用,效率高,及通用性强。 The present invention eliminates pollution from the vehicle, because it does not require the use of fossil fuels, high efficiency, and versatility.

[0009] 本发明提供了对于如下在20世纪20年代和30年代早期的蒸汽汽车发展所遭遇的主要问题的解决方案:固有燃料低效和与蒸汽车辆中的“燃烧器”和“锅炉”组件两者相关的技术维护困难。 [0009] The present invention provides a solution to the main problems are as follows in the early steam car development in the 1920s and 1930s encountered: the inherent inefficiency and fuel "burners" steam vehicle and "Boiler" component both related technical and difficult to maintain. 另外,本发明提供一种介电-蒸汽混合发动机,该介电-蒸汽混合发动机相对于i^asanello描述的手段大大地改进,提供用于生成蒸汽的较安全、较清洁及较高效的装置。 Further, the present invention provides a dielectric - steam hybrid engine, the dielectric - steam hybrid engine with respect to the means described i ^ asanello greatly improved, providing a safer, cleaner and more efficient means for generating steam. 通过克服这些困难,本发明第一次使得实际使用蒸汽发动机组件来向有用的现代车辆供给动力成为可能,这些现代车辆是如汽车、运输公共汽车、重型商用卡车、及施工设备的车辆。 By overcoming these difficulties, the present invention is the use of steam for the first time that the actual power is supplied to the engine assembly useful in modern vehicles becomes possible, these modern vehicles are vehicles such as automobiles, transport buses, heavy-duty commercial trucks, and construction equipment.

[0010] 本发明的发动机设计趋向于在各种各样的不同应用中代替现有内燃机,但主要商业价值最可能是其对于机动车发动机的使用。 [0010] The engine design of the present invention tends to replace the existing internal combustion engine in a variety of different applications, but the commercial value of a most likely use for the automotive engine. 在本发明中描述的介电-蒸汽混合将允许常规汽车或卡车的大部分或全部正常性能特性被保持,而消除对于运行发动机的汽油或其它化石燃料的需要。 Dielectric described in the present invention - steam mixture will allow most or all of the normal performance characteristics of a conventional car or truck is maintained, and eliminate the need for a gasoline engine running or other fossil fuels.

[0011] 在本发明中,化石燃料的消除可通过将闭环水凝结和再循环机动车蒸汽发动机(例如,Doble型的发动机,它在20世纪20年代后期和20世纪30年代被短暂但非常成功地制造)放到由(比如,被用于向如最近修改的Toyota Prius的“插入式混合动力”供给动力的)可充电电池或电池阵列供给动力的车辆中来实现。 [0011] In the present invention, the elimination of fossil fuels can be prepared by condensation of water and recycling of the vehicle closed-loop steam engine (e.g., the Doble type engine, which is short but very successful in the late 1920s and 1930s produced) into a vehicle (for example, to be used as "plug-in hybrid" recent modifications of powered Toyota Prius) a rechargeable battery or a battery powered arrays be achieved. 也可使用开环蒸汽发动机。 It may also be used an open loop steam engine. 因此,不使用以前被用于生成蒸汽的化石燃料点火燃烧器和锅炉装置、或由Fasanello设想的“闪蒸”型加热元件锅炉(其需要通过“焦尔加热”或“欧姆加热”利用电阻煮沸水的加热元件),本发明将电流变换器(转换电池DC-AC)和电气蒸汽发生器装置插入在电池组与蒸汽发动机之间。 Thus, without the use of fossil fuels, the boiler burner and ignition means previously used to generate steam, or by the envisaged Fasanello "flash" boiler-type heating element (which is required by the "power Jai hot" or "Ohmic heating" a resistance boil water heating element), the present invention is a current transformer (conversion cells DC-AC) electrical steam generator and means interposed between the battery pack and the steam engine. 电气蒸汽发生器采用使用直接通过偶极导电液体的交流电(介电加热)的原理来快速煮沸水,以便通过在水、或能够产生工作“蒸汽状”热蒸汽的任何其它偶极分子流体中的各个分子中引起快速分子偶极转动而产生工作量的蒸汽,从而蒸汽是立刻可得到的,并且按能够维持实际蒸汽发动机的操作的方式连续地产生。 Electrical generator using direct steam to rapidly boiling water through the principle of AC dipole conductive liquid (dielectric heating), so that the water, or can have work "vaporous" any other dipole molecules in the fluid by the heating steam in the cause rotation of each molecular dipole molecules quickly workload to generate steam, the steam is thus immediately available, and can be maintained continuously generated by the actual mode of operation of the steam engine.

[0012] 介电加热由偶极转动引起。 [0012] dielectric heating caused by the rotation of the dipole. 当在电气蒸汽发生器中使用水时,必须添加电解液,因为纯水是不导电的。 When water is used in an electrical steam generator, the electrolyte must be added because the water is not electrically conductive. 分子偶极子转动发生在包含具有电极矩的极性分子的物质中,这些极性分子在电场存在的情况下通过转动将它们本身对齐。 Molecular dipole rotation occurs in the electrode material comprises molecules having a polar moment, these polar molecules in the presence of an electric field by rotating them to align themselves. 当由交流电引起的电场交变时,分子颠倒方向,并且进一步加速各个分子的运动。 When the electric field induced by an alternating current alternating, reverse the direction of the molecule, and further acceleration of the individual molecules. 热量通过相对于彼此转动的分子的摩擦而迅速地产生。 Rapidly heat generated by friction with respect to the rotation of the molecules each other.

[0013] 目前介电加热装置的优选例子是在本发明的方案中立即想到的装置,该装置是任何介电电极-电解质型“电气蒸汽发生器”单元,该单元基于浸没在电解质(诸如矿物盐) 已经饱和的水或其它偶极工作流体中的电极之间交变的电流,使用“介电加热”将工作流体加热到沸点,来产生蒸汽。 [0013] Preferred examples of devices are currently dielectric heating apparatus in the embodiment of the present invention is immediately conceivable, which means that any dielectric electrode - electrolyte "Electrical steam generator" unit which is immersed in an electrolyte based (such as mineral salt) alternating current between saturated aqueous working fluid or other dipolar electrodes, using the "dielectric heating" the working fluid heated to boiling temperature, to generate steam. 介电电气蒸汽发生器由车辆的可充电电池组提供的电力运行。 The dielectric steam generator electrical power supplied by the rechargeable battery pack of the vehicle operation.

[0014] 在传统燃烧器/锅炉装置被介电电极-电解质型电气蒸汽发生器淘汰的情况下, 以分子级直接产生热,所以不需要将锅炉的任何部分加热到比产生的蒸汽的温度高的温度。 [0014] In a conventional burner / boiler apparatus is a dielectric electrode - electrolyte case of the steam generator out of the electrical, thermal direct molecular level, there is no need of any part of the steam boiler is heated to a temperature higher than that produced temperature. 较低的操作温度大大地减小了水垢形成的趋势,并且消除了热冲击问题。 Lower operating temperatures greatly reduces the tendency for scale formation, and eliminates the problem of thermal shock. 它也降低了由于超热表面的存在,或由于如果水位降低而暴露加热元件所导致的爆炸或危险发生的可能性。 It also reduces the possibility of the presence of hot surfaces, or due to the risk of explosion or if the level is lowered to expose the heating element caused to occur.

[0015] 使用诸如介电电极-电解质型“电气蒸汽发生器”的介电加热装置,允许本发明的介电-蒸汽混合系统解决在过去90年困扰这种否则是优良的机动车发动机概念的主要设计和效率问题。 [0015] Using such a dielectric electrode - electrolyte "Electrical steam generator" dielectric heating apparatus, the present invention allows the dielectric - excellent automotive engine concept to solve the problems of this system is mixed with steam in the past 90 years otherwise The main design and efficiency.

[0016] 在本发明的优选实施例中使用的电气蒸汽发生器具有几种固有特性,这些特性改进锅炉安全性、效率、及对于车辆蒸汽发动机的适用性。 [0016] Electric steam generator used in the embodiment preferably has several inherent characteristics of the present invention, these characteristics improve the boiler safety, efficiency, and applicability of the steam engine of the vehicle.

[0017] 其中之一,对于任何给定电压的蒸汽输出与浸没在水中的电极部分之间的电流流动成比例。 One [0017] For the steam output current between any given voltage to the electrode partially immersed in the water is proportional to the flow. 所以,如果水位升高,使得被水覆盖的电极增大为两倍,则该瞬时所产生的蒸汽量也将加倍。 So, if the water level rises, so that the electrode is covered by water is increased twice, the amount of the steam instantaneously generated will be doubled.

[0018] 并且,ESG是完全的水-和-蒸汽处置压力容器系统,该压力容器系统不仅产生蒸汽,还在安全备用储备情形下容纳该蒸汽,直到蒸汽发动机需要它(在其它较旧的机动车发动机设计中,这种功能由叫做“热井”的分离设备件执行)。 [0018] and, the ESG is complete water - and - Disposal steam pressure vessel system, the pressure vessel system not only to generate steam, the steam accommodating the safety backup storage case also, the steam engine until it is needed (in other older machine motor car engine designs, such functions are performed by separate pieces of equipment called "hot well"). ESG实现该功能是因为其压力容器包含两个内部腔室(一个腔室嵌套在另一个内部,但底部敞开),被称作“生成腔室” 和“调节腔室”。 ESG implement this function because it is a pressure vessel comprising two internal chambers (one chamber is nested inside another, but open at the bottom), it is referred to as "generation chamber" and "regulating chamber." 通过一系列阀、管、量表、电气传感器及继电器开关,ESG自动地平衡所生成的蒸汽量和进给到电极的水量,并且保持平衡的情形,正如它不断地适应在输出侧对于蒸汽的需要的增加和减小。 Through a series of valves, pipes, gauges, sensors and electrical relay switch, the amount of steam generated automatically balance the ESG and the water fed to the electrodes, and the balance of the case, as indicated by its output side adapted for steam the need to increase and decrease. 因而,ESG自动地维持恒定的自调节蒸汽压力、稳定的温度、以及到单元的自动平衡的电气输入。 Thus, the ESG automatically self-adjusting to maintain a constant steam pressure, temperature stability, and electrical input to the automatic balancing unit.

[0019] 由于ESG内的相对较低的温度,在ESG中,水垢形成比在电阻闪蒸锅炉中发生的可能性要小得多,这些电阻闪蒸锅炉具有极高温度的内部表面。 [0019] Due to the relatively low temperature in the ESG, in the ESG, the possibility of scale formation than in the resistor is much smaller in the flash boiler, the boiler having an interior surface resistivity flash very high temperatures. ESG没有比水或蒸汽本身更热的部分。 ESG is no hotter than the part of the water or steam itself.

[0020] 在闪蒸锅炉,如Fasanello使用的闪蒸锅炉中,水垢的快速形成大大地降低了热传递效率,并因而降低了采用这种装置来生成用于蒸汽发动机的蒸汽的系统的效率。 [0020] In the flash boiler, such as a flash boiler Fasanello in use, rapid scale formation significantly reduces the heat transfer efficiency, and thus reducing the efficiency of the use of such an apparatus to generate steam for the steam system of the engine. 相反, 在ESG中,即使当有限量的水垢最终形成的电极末端上时,它也既不导致锅炉效率的损失, 也不对人员或设备呈现危险。 In contrast, in the ESG, even when the electrode has a limited amount of scale formed in the final end of the time, it also results in a loss of boiler efficiency is neither nor dangerous to personnel or equipment present. 与在闪蒸锅炉中发现的烧固水垢不同,在ESG中形成的这种水垢可以在定期维护期间用金属丝刷从电极末端迅速和容易地除去。 And baked in the flash boiler scale found different, such scale may be formed in the ESG from the electrode tip quickly and easily removed with a wire brush during routine maintenance.

[0021 ] 而且,在ESG中,如果电极末端(从单元的顶部朝水向下下去,水从底部向上填充) 由于某种原因由水位的突然降低而暴露,那么电极之间的电流不再能通过。 [0021] Further, in the ESG, if the electrode terminal (slave unit continues toward the top of the water down, water is filled from the bottom up) is exposed for some reason by the sudden drop in water level, the current between the electrodes can no longer by. 因此,不发生低水位损害。 Therefore, low water damage does not occur. [0022] ESG比其它锅炉类型冷却和重新启动得快,减小了维护停机时间。 [0022] ESG cooling than other boiler types and restarted quickly, reducing maintenance downtime.

[0023] ESG比其它锅炉类型简单,并且使所需控制和安全装置的数量最小。 [0023] ESG simpler than other types of boilers, and the required minimum number of control and safety devices.

[0024] 因为没有像在闪蒸锅炉中那样,在将热传递到水以产生另外的蒸汽时有延迟,所以ESG对于突然负载变化反应迅速。 [0024] Because no like that, when the heat transfer to the water to generate additional steam boiler there is a delay in the flash, the ESG sudden load changes for rapid response.

[0025] 关于ESG,没有可能的“冷水”冲击危险,而如果水位下降到某最小点以下,则常规燃料燃烧锅炉和浸没电阻加热元件型的电气闪蒸锅炉经受具有潜在灾难性结果的失效。 [0025] For the ESG, not possible "cold" shock hazard, and if the water level drops to a minimum point, the conventional fuel combustion boiler and the immersion type electrical resistance heating element is subjected to flash boiler having a potentially catastrophic failure results. 在ESG中没有不安全的水位,如果由于任何原因水供给中断,使压力容器中的水下降到正常液位以下,则电极末端将被完全暴露。 Not the ESG unsafe level, if for any reason the water supply is cut off, the pressure reduced to normal underwater vessel below the liquid level of the electrode tip is fully exposed. 一旦该情况发生,电流将停止在电极之间流动,并且将不产生蒸汽,所以危险的温度爬升不能发生。 Once this occurs, a current flows between the electrodes is stopped, and the steam is not generated, there is no risk of temperature climb not occur.

[0026] 在ESG中,基本上百分之百的电能被转换成热。 [0026] In the ESG, substantially one hundred percent of the electrical energy is converted into heat. 没有排气烟道,没有火焰,没有烟炱,没有污染,没有加热元件烧毁,及没有能量用于处置燃料或空气。 No exhaust stack, no flame, no soot, no pollution, no heating element is burned, and no energy is used to handle fuel or air. 热仅按两种方式失去: 通过热辐射,或有意吹出蒸汽以供使用。 Only the loss of heat in two ways: by heat radiation, blowing steam or intended for use.

[0027] 与!^仰1^110详细说明的闪蒸型锅炉不同,ESG被设计成是固有地自调节的,并且具有几个冗余安全特征,以保证对于水或蒸汽压力的突然变化(或甚至压力容器本身的灾难性破坏)导致电力、表面加热、及蒸汽生成的立即切断。 [0027] and! ^ ^ 110 1 Yang flash boiler different detailed description, the ESG is designed to be inherently self-regulating, and having several redundant safety features to ensure that the water or steam for a sudden change of pressure ( or even catastrophic failure of the pressure vessel itself) power leads, surface heating, and steam generation is cut off immediately.

[0028] 尽管本发明具有大量潜在用途,但想到的是,本发明的最显著优点在于,消除了车辆发动机对于汽油或任何其它液体燃料的需要。 [0028] Although the present invention has a number of potential uses, it is contemplated that the most significant advantage of the invention is to eliminate the need for a gasoline engine vehicle or any other liquid fuel. 在现有地理政治、经济及环境条件下,减小或消除对于用于动力和运输的化石燃料的依赖性的价值是不可估量的。 Under the current geopolitical, economic and environmental conditions, to reduce or eliminate the dependence of the value of fossil fuels for power and transport are immeasurable.

[0029] 在本发明中元件的唯一组合产生一种没有任何内部燃烧的介电-蒸汽混合发动机系统,并且消除了对化石燃料的需要,所述化石燃料用于驱动使用内燃机的汽车或其它车辆系统。 [0029] The unique combination of elements in the present invention without any dielectric produce an internal combustion - steam hybrid engine system, and eliminates the need for fossil fuels, the use of fossil fuels for an internal combustion engine driving an automobile or other vehicle system. 因此,它也消除了与所有化石燃料内燃机相关联的一氧化碳毒害的致命威胁。 Therefore, it also eliminates the threat of deadly carbon monoxide poisoning associated with all fossil-fuel internal combustion engine.

[0030] 本发明的ESG或其它蒸汽发生器可由任何电能源供给动力,诸如由车载电池、岸用电力充电(例如,如在通过w驟.CalCars. org可得到的“Prius Plus”中使用的过夜充电) 及新开发的电力生成技术(例如:在汽车或卡车顶部上的太阳能电池)的组合供给动力。 [0030] ESG or other steam generator of the present invention may be powered by any source of electrical energy, such as a vehicle battery charged by the electric power, the land (e.g., as in step .CalCars by w. Org available in "Prius Plus" using overnight charging) of the power generation and the development of new techniques (e.g.: on top of the car or truck solar cell) powered combinations. 使用本发明系统的车辆也可以装有蓄能器装置,以回收另外的机械能并且再生地将其进给回电池,一种对于机动车工程技术领域的技术人员容易得到的方案,并且目前这样的装置可安装在现有汽油-电气混合车辆设计中。 Vehicle using the inventive system may also be provided with the accumulator apparatus, to recover additional mechanical energy to be regenerated and fed back to the battery A vehicle for engineering technical field art readily available programs, and such current device may be mounted in an existing gas - electric hybrid vehicle design. 由于汽油和化石燃料的高价格和有限供给,目前存在对于这样的新动力生成技术的发展的重大激励,并且本系统足够通用以致适应多种这样的技术的使用,只要它们能够运行诸如这里描述的介电蒸汽发生器的介电加热装置。 Because of the high price and limited supply of fossil fuels and gasoline, there is now a major incentive for the development of technology to generate such new dynamic, and versatile enough that the system accommodate a variety of use of such technology, as long as they can be run as described herein dielectric heating means of the dielectric steam generator.

[0036] 本发明的一个另外清楚的优点是,蒸汽发动机,诸如Doble型蒸汽发动机,十分小、简单、相对轻量、且极耐用(已知Doble发动机可维持几十万英里,常常仅具有正常发动机维护)。 [0036] A further advantage of the invention is clear that the steam engine, the steam engine, such as a type Doble, is very small, simple, relatively lightweight, and very durable (Doble known engine may be maintained several hundred thousand miles and often having only normal engine maintenance). 在本发明中使用的技术和材料可被适应使得本发明的发动机可以能够在相对标准的设施或制造厂,如在目前由汽车制造商运营的那些制造厂中,以相对适度的改变和修改制造。 Techniques and materials used in the present invention may be adapted such that the engine according to the present invention may be capable of relatively standard or manufacturing facilities, such as those present by the automobile manufacturer manufacturing operations in order to relatively modest changes and modifications manufacturing .

[0061] 1926年,Convertible Doble具有四缸、双作用、复合、水平发动机,该发动机具有两个高压缸(二又八分之五英寸乘五英寸)和两个低压缸(四又二分之一英寸乘五英寸), 具有3,490cc的排量,在937rpm下发出120hp。 [0061] In 1926, Convertible Doble having a four-cylinder, double-acting, compound, level of the engine, the engine having two high pressure cylinders (two and five-eighths inches by five inches) and two low-pressure cylinders (four and one-half one inches by five inches), has a displacement of 3,490cc, 120hp at 937rpm at issue. 锅炉中的工作压力是710psi,并且这使重4,256磅的汽车以60mph,仅以900rpm沿道路前进。 Boiler operating pressure is 710psi, and this makes heavy 4,256-pound car to 60mph, only 900rpm along the road ahead. 发动机直接用齿轮连接到后轴上,并且最大速度超过95mph。 The engine is directly connected to the gear on the shaft, and the maximum speed of more than 95mph. 当时,评论者关于1拟6年的Doble写到,“如果全部机械操作道路运输可由某种没有启动噪声,没有轰鸣的发动机,没有齿轮箱的原动机(如这种蒸汽发动机) 驱动,并且可几乎没有声音的开走,则对于城市生活将是多大的恩惠,并且我们的城市将会多么舒适! ”,他们补充到,“这种蒸汽汽车的低发动机速度免于磨损并使得维护容易,这是重大的优点。” At the time, commentators on Doble 1 proposed six years wrote, "If all the mechanical operation of road transport by some kind of noise does not start, no roar of the engine, the gearbox is not the prime mover (such as the steam engine) driven, and may be almost no sound away, then for urban life will be much grace, and how our city will be comfortable! ", they added," this low engine speed steam car from wear and makes maintenance easy, It is a major advantage. "

[0062] Doble 蒸汽发动机本身在The Model Engineer and PracticalElectrician, 1930 年2月6日,第123-127页中被更详细地描述;该出版物的公开内容通过引用并入本文。 [0062] Doble steam engine itself The Model Engineer and PracticalElectrician, 1930 2 years 6, pp. 123-127 are described in greater detail; the disclosure of which publication is incorporated herein by reference.

[0063] 蒸汽发动机优于内燃机的优点包括如下:没有保持蒸汽发动机运行需要的最小怠速,只要水保持加热(当今借助于现代隔热技术和材料应该是更容易的事情)即可。 Advantage of [0063] superior to the steam engine of an internal combustion engine comprising: a steam engine idle not maintain the minimum required for the operation, as long as the water kept heated (by means of today's modern insulation techniques and materials it should be easier to do) to.

[0064] 当蒸汽汽车停止时,发动机变为零rpm,但保持全转矩(在Doble的情况下超过一千英尺磅),该全转矩当驾驶员准备再次行驶时(甚至在数小时以后)是立刻可得到的。 When the [0064] When the steam car is stopped, the engine becomes zero rpm, but keep the full torque (more than one thousand feet of pounds in the case of Doble), the full torque when the driver is ready to drive again (even after hours ) is immediately available.

[0065] 此外,转矩按增大速度的平稳模拟流输送到轴,或者减少或者完全消除对变速器、 自动装置或其它装置的需要;使换档和磨损齿轮作废。 [0065] Further, according to the torque increase simulation speed steady stream to the shaft, or to reduce or completely eliminate the need for transmission, an automatic device, or other device; and the shift gear wear abolished.

[0066] 蒸汽发动机是真正可逆的。 [0066] steam engine is truly reversible. 它们可如向前那样良好地全速后退,仅取决于蒸汽被引导到活塞的哪个端部中,因而它们不需要任何类型的复杂离合机构。 They may as well as astern forward, depending on the steam is directed only to which the end of the piston, so that they do not require any type of complex clutch mechanism.

[0067] 蒸汽发动机安静。 [0067] The steam engine quieter. 尽管普通的印象是排放蒸汽的噪声蒸汽火车,但使其蒸汽通过冷凝器循环的汽车在它们的发动机上不要求任何消声器或隔板,因为基本上最初不产生噪声。 Although the general impression is venting steam steam train noise, but it steam circulating through the condenser does not require any silencer automobiles or their engine separator as initially substantially no noise is generated.

[0068] 如“Old Time Steam Cars”的作者John Bentley所指出的,内燃机的热效率可以达到百分之三十五,而蒸汽发动机的热效率高达到百分之九十。 [0068] as "Old Time Steam Cars" author John Bentley pointed out, the engine thermal efficiency can reach 35 percent and the high thermal efficiency of the steam engine than 90 percent. 这意味着,每加仑汽油中只有小部分在推进内燃机动力汽车时做一些实际功;该加仑汽油的大部分被转化成无用热, 这又使得复杂和消耗功率的冷却系统是必要的,以便防止过热。 This means that a gallon of gasoline in only a small part of the advance made in the internal combustion engine powered cars practical work; most of the gallon of gasoline is converted into useless heat, which in turn makes the cooling system complexity and power consumption are necessary in order to prevent overheat.

[0069] 另外,即使多缸汽油发动机的低速转矩(牵引动力)也是非常低效的;并且因为这个原因,有必要先发展滑动齿轮和同步啮合变速器,然后,通过“改进”来发展各种昂贵、复杂且沉重的转矩变换器,这些转矩变换器在情况需要时,通过将速度转化成能量(反之亦然)来(在一定程度上)弥补这种缺点。 [0069] Further, even when the multi-cylinder gasoline engine speed torque (traction force) is very inefficient; and for this reason, it is necessary to develop the sliding gear and the synchromesh transmission, and then, through the "improvement" to the development of various expensive, complex and heavy torque converter, the torque converter case when required, by converting velocity energy into (or vice versa) to make up for this drawback (to some extent).

[0070] 相反,具有少于四十个运动零件的两缸、双作用蒸汽发动机提供与堆满大量混乱机件的八缸内燃机一样多的功率脉动每曲轴转;并且蒸汽发动机既不需要离合器,也不需要任何类型的转矩变换器。 [0070] Conversely, with less than forty two moving parts cylinder, double-acting steam engines filled with as many eight-cylinder internal combustion engine inordinate mechanical power pulsations per revolution of the crankshaft; neither the steam engine and the clutch, It does not require any type of torque converter. 它可用齿轮直接连接到汽车或车辆的轴上。 It can be directly connected to a gear shaft of a car or vehicle.

[0071] 在评估当今汽车的效率时(特别是提到赛车或跑车时),通常想到两个高度希望的标准。 (Especially mention racing or sports car) [0071] In assessing the efficiency of today's vehicles, typically think of two highly desirable standard. 第一个是300bhp每吨重量的魔力数据(用非超动力的发动机),并且这用内燃机很难实现。 The first is a magic 300bhp per ton weight data (with a non-supercharged engine), and this is difficult to achieve with the internal combustion engine. 第二个是IOObhp每升(61立方英寸)排量的输出,至今未由任何正常吸气的内燃机实现。 The second output IOObhp per liter (61 cubic inches) displacement, has not implemented by any of a normally aspirated engine.

[0072] 借助于适当设计的蒸汽发动机,这些目标都不会呈现任何困难;的确,在1906年, Fred Marriot的Florida Stanley Racer,在127. 66mph下创造新世界记录的所谓的“怪胎”,非常接近这些理想值。 [0072] by means of appropriate design of the steam engine, these goals will not present any difficulty; indeed, in 1906, Fred Marriot in Florida Stanley Racer, a new world record in the 127. 66mph under the so-called "freak" these values ​​are very close to the ideal. 它对于小于2,200磅的重量和206立方英寸的排量产生250bhp。 It produces 250bhp weight and 206 cubic inch displacement of less than 2,200 pounds. 这是在几乎一个世纪以前,并且蒸汽动力汽车不需要多个汽缸、顶置凸轮轴、驱动齿轮系、 多个汽化器或错综复杂的点火系统。 This is almost a century ago, and steam-powered cars do not need more cylinders, overhead camshaft, drive gear train, the more intricate the carburetor or ignition system.

[0073] 相对于日常驾车需要,如加速、灵活性、速度、可靠性、运行经济性、安静或维护/ 维修成本,现代蒸汽汽车在实际上任何条件下可胜过常规内燃机汽车。 [0073] with respect to the daily driving needs, such as acceleration, agility, speed, reliability, operational economy and quiet or maintenance / repair costs, modern steam car in any condition can actually be better than the conventional internal combustion engine vehicles. 此外,借助于高效的生产方法,由根据本发明的介电-蒸汽混合发动机系统供给动力的汽车,可按比平均汽油动力汽车的价格显著低的价格批量制造和销售。 Further, by means of efficient production method of a dielectric according to the present invention - hybrid system steam powered automobile engine, can significantly lower price than the price of mass production and sale of gasoline-powered cars average.

[0078] 在其它优选实施例中,将使用多个容器或腔室,这些容器或腔室包括:(a)至少一个第一容器或腔室,包含含电解质流体,该含电解质流体被介电地激励,并且将生成热或能量,该热或能量被提供给(b)至少一个第二容器或腔室,包含将被转化成蒸汽的水或其它流体。 [0078] In other preferred embodiments, the use of multiple chambers or containers, these containers or chamber comprising: (a) at least a first vessel or chamber containing the electrolyte-containing fluid is a dielectric fluid containing electrolytes excited, and the generated heat energy or the thermal energy is provided to, or (b) at least a second vessel or chamber, to be converted to contain water or other fluid vapor. 在这样的多腔室蒸汽发生器的实施例中,第一腔室将包含含电解质流体,该含电解质流体被介电地激励,并将由此变热。 In such an embodiment of the multi-chamber of the steam generator, comprising a first chamber containing an electrolyte fluid, the electrolyte-containing dielectric fluid is excited, and thereby heats. 加热的含电解质流体(或其热蒸汽)将接触流体的第二腔室的表面,该流体优选地是蒸馏水或纯水或具有较低沸点的工作溶液,如与氨水相混合的水,该流体由此将转化成提供给蒸汽发动机的蒸汽。 Heating the surface of the second chamber containing an electrolyte fluid (or hot steam) contacting the fluid, the fluid is preferably distilled or pure water or working solution having a lower boiling point, such as ammonia mixed with water, the fluid thereby converted to steam supplied to the steam engine. 典型地,蒸汽然后冷凝并且返回到第二腔室以供重新使用。 Typically, the steam is then condensed and returned to the second chamber for reuse. 在优选的多腔室实施例中,具有蒸馏水或纯水的一个或多个第二腔室可以“嵌套”在一个或多个第一腔室内,使得纯水将连续地通过第二腔室。 In a preferred embodiment of the multi-chamber embodiment having a plurality of distilled or pure water or a second chamber can "nest" in one or more of the first chamber, such that water will be continuously passed through the second chamber . 在其它实施例中,纯水的盘旋管可以穿过电解质腔室延伸。 In other embodiments, the water spiral tube may extend through the electrolyte chamber. 各种尺寸和构造的容器和腔室的多种变化和变更是可能的,并且将构成本发明的一部分。 Many variations and modifications of the container and the chamber of various sizes and configurations are possible, and which will form part of the invention.

[0079] 使用蒸汽发生器的再加热或预加热: [0079] steam generator or reheated preheating:

[0080] 在一些实施例中,可能希望的是,使蒸汽或水(或在具体系统设计中利用的任何其它工作蒸汽或化学溶液)沿一定路线到管路中,该管路将它通过介电蒸汽发生器的内部送回,以便在蒸汽或液体在发动机、辅助涡轮机、或其它交流发电机状装置中完成某种其它功能之前,升高蒸汽或液体的温度。 [0080] In some embodiments, it may be desirable that the steam or water (or utilized in any particular system design working steam or other chemical solutions) along a given route to the line, the line will be mediated by it before internal electrical steam generator back to perform certain other functions of the engine, an auxiliary turbine, alternator, or other like device in a vapor or liquid, raising the temperature of the vapor or liquid.

[0081] 在旧式蒸汽汽车中进行了类似的事情,其中,从较大汽缸排出的蒸汽在沿一定路线穿过Venturi燃烧器的红热内部的小管路中循环出来,以便在蒸汽被复合发动机布置中的下个较小汽缸使用之前,使蒸汽过热。 [0081] Cars in the old steam in a similar thing, wherein the steam discharged from the larger cylinder cycle out in a small red-hot pipe passes through the interior of the Venturi burner along a certain route, the compound engine so as to be disposed in the vapor prior to the next use of smaller cylinders, the steam superheating. [0082] 使用这种原理,通过使管路通过介电蒸汽发生器内的调节或生成腔室的蒸汽或水区域以拾取另外的热能,由整个电气-蒸汽混合发动机系统的不同级使用的蒸汽或水的温度可以在环路中的某些点处可选择性地升高。 [0082] Using this principle, by passing steam or water through the line regulator region or generated within the chamber of the dielectric steam generator in order to pick up additional heat from the entire electrical - steam used in different stages of the steam hybrid engine system or water temperature may be at some point in the loop may be selectively increased. 一个或多个管路也可盘绕或弯曲成不同的构造,这些构造允许它通过蒸汽发生器的内部内的一些或甚至所有不同区域和腔室。 One or more lines may be coiled or bent into different configurations, these configurations allow it to pass some or even all of the different regions and the interior chamber of the steam generator.

[0086] 尽管不是理想的,但在某些实施例中,可能优选的是,可以使用少量可燃燃料来向发动机提供另外的能量;例如,作为辅助动力产生装置。 [0086] Although not ideal, in some embodiments, it may be preferred that a small amount of combustible fuel may be used to provide additional energy to the engine; e.g., as an auxiliary power generator. 在其它实施例中,本发明可以包括一个或多个备用电气/电容系统,如备用电池,如果初始能量装置低运行,则可以使用所述系统。 In other embodiments, the present invention may comprise one or more standby electrical / capacitance system, such as battery backup, if the initial low energy device operation, the system may be used. 其它实施例可以包括用于将本发明的电气和/或介电装置附接到外部电源的装置, 如附接到AC电气插座、或诸如外部电池或发电机的DC电压源。 Other embodiments may comprise an electrical device of the present invention and / or dielectric means for attaching an external power source, such as attached to the AC electrical outlet, or a DC voltage source such as a battery or an external generator. 这些元件可以用于允许发动机的更高效或快速启动,或允许本发明的电源装置的充电。 These elements can be used to allow a more efficient or rapid engine start, or allow the charging power supply device according to the present invention.

[0087] 转到附图,图1示意地描绘本发明的混合电气-蒸汽发动机系统的实施例的简化样式。 [0087] Turning to the drawings, FIG. 1 schematically depicts a hybrid electric present invention - simplified version of an embodiment of the steam engine system. 在这个实施例中,到该混合电气-蒸汽发动机系统的主要输入是可来自现在或将来供电的任何电源20的电力。 In this embodiment, to the hybrid electric - input main steam engine system is now in the future from the power supply 20, or any of. 电源线22或类似充电装置插入到电源20中,并且电力流入电力存储阵列M中的可充电电池和/或电容器,并向其充电,并且在一些实施例中,这些电池和/或电容器可在阵列中包括已经单独充电的交换电池或电容器(如在紧急情形下或在要求电池的立即快速更换的其它情形下)。 Power line 22 or similar means is inserted into the charging power supply 20, and the power flowing into the power storage array M is a rechargeable battery and / or capacitor, and its charged, and in some embodiments, these batteries and / or capacitors may be exchange array comprising a charged battery or a capacitor alone (e.g., in an emergency situation or other circumstances in the rapid exchange of immediate requirements of the battery).

[0088] 一旦电力在车辆上,并且存储在电力存储阵列M中,它就流到变换器沈,变换器26将它(具有轻微损失)从直流变换成可由介电蒸汽发生器30使用的交流。 [0088] Upon power on the vehicle, and the power storage array M, the memory converter sink it flows, it converter 26 (with a slight loss) is converted from direct current to the steam generator 30 may be formed using a dielectric AC . 介电蒸汽发生器30通过将电流从一个浸没电极直接穿过混合有电解质(通常是矿物盐)的水发送到接收电极,来使用AC电流迅速地煮沸水。 The dielectric steam generator 30 by the current passing through the electrodes immersed directly from a mixed electrolyte (usually a mineral salt) in water to a receiving electrode, AC current is used to boil water quickly. 由于电解质的存在和水分子本身的偶极性质,在两个(或更多个)电极之间的电场使水分子按受激方式反应,该受激方式产生分子摩擦和热,直到水(或具有较低沸点的其它适当偶极工作化学溶液)煮沸成蒸汽或类似工作蒸汽的点。 Due to the presence of water and electrolytes dipolar molecule itself, in two (or more) electric field between the electrodes by the reaction of water molecules excited manner, the running mode is generated by molecular friction and heat, until the water (or other suitable dipolar working chemical solution having a lower boiling point) to the boiling point of the working steam or the like steam. 介电蒸汽发生器30也使用由变换器沈供给的AC电流,以基于型号和设计来操作其小型给水泵和任何其它辅助电气设备。 The dielectric steam generator 30 also uses the AC current supplied by the inverter sink to operate to its small electric water pump and other auxiliary equipment based on any type and design.

[0089] 一旦在介电蒸汽发生器30中被生成,工作蒸汽通过至少一个阀40用被管路弓I出,阀40响应于来自车辆70的驾驶员的节流阀输入而操作,并且也根据蒸汽压力安全性、和机动车蒸汽发动机50基于它此刻正被如何驱动的需求条件而调节。 [0089] Once generated the dielectric steam generator 30, the working vapor through the at least one valve 40 with the line I bow out, the throttle valve 40 in response to input from the driver of the vehicle 70 is operated, and also 50 based on the demand conditions on how it is being driven at the moment is adjusted according to the vapor pressure of the safety, and the steam engine of the motor vehicle. 蒸汽发动机50可以是以前、现有、及潜在设计的蒸汽发动机的任一种,这些蒸汽发动机是往复的、涡轮的、混合液压的或能够将机械运动动力直接提供给任何类型的车辆70 (特别是当前使用内燃机的那些车辆)的其它蒸汽发动机。 Before the steam engine 50 may be any one of a conventional steam engine, the design and potential, which are reciprocating steam engines, turbines, hydraulic or mixed mechanical motive power can be directly supplied to any type of vehicle 70 (particularly an internal combustion engine that is currently using the vehicle) of the other steam engine.

[0090] 不管蒸汽发动机设计是一个汽缸、十二个汽缸或根本没有汽缸,一旦发动机50中的原动机利用了热蒸汽或其它工作蒸汽,它就从管路阳排出到冷凝器单元60,冷凝器单元60完成剩余温度降低,以将它恢复成液体,该液体然后经一定路线到可选的水保持箱62, 或者直接回到介电蒸汽发生器30。 [0090] Regardless of the steam engine is a cylinder design, twelve cylinders, or no cylinders, the engine once the prime mover 50 using steam or other hot working steam, it is discharged from the condenser means to the male conduit 60, condensed unit 60 complete the remaining temperature is lowered to restore to a liquid that then after a certain route to an optional water holding tank 62 or directly back to the dielectric steam generator 30.
