In a general power system, a thermal engine having a thermal energy source with a compressor and turbine combination operating in a Brayton cycle with the compressor being driven by an electrical motor and the turbine driving a generator, the compressor compressing the motive gas which is thermally heated by the thermal energy source and the heated gas expanding in the turbine.
1. In a general power system having an electrical storage and drive system, an improved thermal engine comprising:a. thermal energy source; and b. a Brayton cycle compressor and turbine combination in an open system wherein the combination has a single constant pressure compressor and a constant pressure turbine, where the compressor has a drive shaft connected to a drive means for driving the compressor independently from the turbine and the turbine has a driven output shaft for mechanical output disconnected from the drive shaft of the compressor, wher...
