This invention is a hybrid engine employing a reciprocating piston in conjunction with an electromagnetic transducer for control and power output. The transducer is essentially a specialized linear motor/generator. The piston is rigidly connected by means of a rod to a permanent magnet (or equivalent). The piston-rod-magnet unit is constrained by bearings to move translationally along one axis. The magnet can move linearly into and out of the yoke of the magnetic transducer to generate an electric current in the windings of the yoke. At the same time com...
In an internal combustion engine which includes at least one cylinder, a piston reciprocal therein, fuel and air intake means operatively connected to said cylinder, exhaust gas means also operatively connected to said cylinder and a source of fuel/air ignition also operatively connected to said cylinder; the improvement comprising in combination, support structure, a connecting rod secured by one end to said piston and reciprocal therewith along a common axis, bearing means mounted on said supporting structure for supporting said connecting rod for reci...
