In various embodiments, dead space and associated coupling losses are reduced in energy storage and recovery systems employing compressed air.
1. An energy storage and recovery system comprising: a cylinder assembly for compressing gas to store energy and expanding gas to recover energy, the cylinder assembly comprising (i) first and second chambers and (ii) a movable mechanical boundary mechanism separating the first and second chambers, at least one of the chambers being a pneumatic chamber, whereby the cylinder assembly includes dead space when the boundary mechanism is disposed at a limit of travel within the cylinder assembly;a first mechanism for removably introducing a substantially inco...
