Stan - no sorry, my engine control system unfortunately cannot change the thermodynamics of the Solar turbine. And this is responsible for the fuel economy. In one liter or gallon The Solar has an air mass flow of roughly one kilogram per second. To heat it to, say, C just before it enters the NGV turbine nozzle guide vanesjust a certain amount of thermal energy is required which is released in the combustor by the burning fuel.
This both means basically stressing the materials higher, and consequently using more modern alloys for the critical components. By the way, this is exactly what a friend of mine and I are doing at that time, designing and constructing a state-of-the-art turboshaft in the same power class as the Solar. Yet, all the other figures will be completely different. Especially the fuel control unit requires extremely close tolerances.
So far, we already spent a small furtune on the stuff, working already four years on the design and will probably spend another fortune until the first prototype runs All the best, Thomas.For shipping and time for delivery please contact.
The butteries not included. A year-old Brit gave his dog away after the border collie-spaniel mix chewed the fiberglass fender of his Aston Martin DB9 Volante while he was away from home, the Daily Mail reports.
Royston Grimstead, from Somerset, England, told the Mail he was already contemplating giving his dog, Luce, away because she didn't get along with his other dog. Michigan-based Gibbs Technologies has released two new high-speed, commercial-grade amphibian vehicles, named the Phibian and the Humdinga. The Phibian is a foot-long, nearly foot-tall craft capable of highway speeds on land and more than 30 mph 26 knots in the water. Constructed mainly of carbon fiber, the Phibian can hold up to 15 people, including a crew of three.

Below is a list of what we did. Again all work has been done. This turbine is ready for use. High Speed Bearings and seal - replaced with brand new bearings and seal.
When we reported the leak we did say we expected Mercedes to extract a digit and dish out the official gen sooner rather than later.
So this bright Sunday morning Sunday, eh? The Citroen AirCross - looks like a South America only crossover This could be a new car from Citroen, but it could just as easily be another of those oddities that car makers throw at the southern end of the Americas.
But CAP — who gauge used car prices for the motor trade — are warning that this could be about to change as the impact of recent trading in new cars is about to start impacting on used car prices, particularly prices for cars less than a year old.

Hot Gas Nozzle - replaced with brand new part Diffuser - replaced with very good low time used part Exciter - replaced with brand new unit Igniter Plug - replaced with brand new plug High Speed Bearings and seal - replaced with brand new bearings and seal Gear Box Bearings - replaced with brand new bearings Pinion shaft - replaced.

The manufacturer's original electronic controller was burnt out on this unit, so I designed and built this replacement. The control box connects to the original GPU instruments and the T62 engine harness through an umbilical and a relay box.
Having succesfully tested the engine and slightly less succesfully the control box, the engine is pulled from the enclosure.
There are a lot of other interesting an useful parts in the enclosure. The yellow part of the engine is the 60kW Hz alternator or generator. As you can see by the way the engine is hanging, the alternator is heavy about 50kg. Some views of the engine, with the generator removed. The gearbox is the biggest and heaviest part of the engine, the turbine itself is very compact and relatively light at 64kg.

I've cleaned the engine as well as I can without actually completely stripping it down. Does anyone know of a perfect way to clean aluminium castings? Here is a cutaway 58kb of the engine.
This is very similar to the GTP is its design, with the turbine and compressor back to back on a cantilever shaft protruding from the gearbox. The bearings for the turbine are therfore remote from the hot gas, and are cooled and lubricated by oil mist circulated up the hollow rotor shaft.
I think the time has come maybe to stop playing with the engines and put this one to work I wonder? At around shp rating, it is tempting to consider a wheeled vehicle application for this engine. Mating single shaft turbines to wheeled vehicles is tricky. The efficiency and output power drops off drastically at shaft speeds below the rated design speed.
Engaging a clutch manually, while attempting to keep the turbine speed constant would be fun - for a while. Maybe a bit ugly, but a belt drive constantly variable transmission CVT and a properly designed centrifugal clutch would be an interesting combination with this engine. After all, snowmobiles use this technology, and they are not ugly, or slow! The engine would have to be electronically controlled still, to prevent too much droop in the shaft speed, and also to protect against turbine overtemperature.The engine can be run on the test stand.
Perfect condition and ready to bolt onto your helicopter project! Below is a list of what we did. Again all work has been done. This turbine is ready for use. High Speed Bearings and seal - replaced with brand new bearings and seal. Though the racing events were the original justification for this trip to Europe, the greatest anticipation was coming from picking up the Alfa Romeo.
With Goodwood finished off, it was time to collect the Giulia Sprint GT that we had committed to buy just last week. We've never bought a car to bring back to the USA before, but we see it all the time on BaT and wanted to do it ourselves so that we could learn more about the details of such a transaction.
EN-V stands for Electric Networked Vehicle and is an urban mobility solution to keep pedestrians moving in busy cities of the future. The future?
