An external combustion engine, such as the vapor cycle engine, produces power by the expansion of a working fluid vapor. A vapor generator vaporizes a suitable working fluid which is fed to an expander. The vaporized working fluid expands and is subsequently fed back to the vapor generator. A burner provides energy for the vapor generator. The fuel and air supply for the burner is controlled by a system responsive to operating conditions of the engine. That is, the power input to the vapor generator is correlated by a control system with the demand on th...
A vapor cycle engine comprising: a. means for burning a combustible fuel and air mixture to product heat energy; b. a vapor generator associated with said burning means for vaporizing a working fluid; c. expander means for expanding working fluid vapor to produce work, the power output level of said expander being functionally related to the volume of working fluid vapor expanded; d. means for condensing vaporized working fluid exhausted from said expander means; e. means for transporting condensed working fluid to said vapor generator; f. means for cont...
