Pseudo Adiabatic Technology
Combustion engines are characterized by greater efficiency, when using supercharging.
Most effective is turbocharger, driven by exhaust pressure, with speed of more, than 300 meters per second.
Typical turbocharged four stroke internal combustion petrol engine is an engine in which the combustion of fossil fuel occurs with pressurized air in a combustion chamber. The expansion of extreme high-temperature and high-pressure gases produced by combustion apply direct force to piston and moves it, transforming chemical energy into mechanical energy. Crucial factor in this process is EFFICIENCY - which divides power into usable energy and waste heat. Current ratios of modern engines are very inefficient due to a third of the energy converts to work (thin vertical arrow) and the remaining energy is wasted heat (bold arrows pointing to the cylinder walls). So the majority of energy goes to wasted heat absorbed by the water and out the exhaust. Therefore, the loses of energy are greater than the work done.
40°C/104°F - intake temperature
1200°C/2190°F - exhaust temperature
30% - typical efficiency
In conventional turbo motor, the aspirated air is rapidly heated and must be cooled by aircooler - called intercooler.
Cold air has a higher density, and contains more oxygen, necessary for proper combustion.
The electronic control unit, evaluates the piston position, mixes the air with fuel, and ignites a spark. The following reaction will release a large amount of energy, of which the major part is converted into heat and destroyed in exhaust gasses, and water cooling system. Effectively, the performance will use less, than a third of the resulting energy.
Pseudo Adiabatic Engine
The RTU patented unique combustion technology can be retrofitted to existing turbocharged four stroke internal combustion engines and rendering efficiencies of 15-24% depending on engine design. Incorporating 100% of the technology in an RTU engine will offer full power and efficiencies of up to 70%. Not like the inefficient ratios of current petrol/diesel engines, the expansion process produced by RTU combustion applies the main force to the piston (bold vertical arrow) while the remaining energy is still wasted by heat (thin arrows pointing to the cylinder walls). Crucial difference between conventional engines is the proportion of energy converted to work; this would represent two thirds of generated power. The usable energy and waste heat are reciprocated. A typical OTTO cycle engine is 20% efficient with 80% lost to friction and heat, the biggest proponent being heat. This is where our performance and efficiencies are realized!
-20°C/-4°F - intake temperature
590°C/1090°F - exhaust temperature
70% - RTU efficiency
To retrofit the existing engine to RTU patented technology, its needed to replace and modify, several key parts. Mainly the pistons and rings, control unit, and the entire intake manifold.
Water radiator is no longer necessary, since the pseudo adiabatic engine leads to cold combustion, and heat is released, in much smaller scale.
Minor water flow is still used to equalise the hot and cold spots, inside the engine.
Unnecessary as well, is now the catalic converter. The whole charching process is similar up to the moment of combustion, where thanks to thermodynamic processes, its leading to massive work-efficiency increase.
Using the unique RTU pseudo adiabatic combustion process, just one third of energy is wasted in heat, while the greater part is now used on the actual output, and going directly to your wheels.
