Researchers developing free-piston linear generator for exhaust waste heat recovery

Researchers developing free-piston linear generator for exhaust waste heat recovery 28 October 2017 Researchers in China have developed a novel free-piston linear generator (FPLG) to recover exhaust waste heat efficiently from a vehicle engine. The FPLG can be used in a small-scale organic Rankine cycle (ORC) system and can directly convert the thermodynamic energy of working fluid into electricity. In a paper published in the journal Applied Thermal Engineering , the team from Beijing University of Technology, Collaborative Innovation Center of Electric Vehicles in Beijing, and Datong North Tianli Turbocharging Technology Co., Ltd. reports that the energy conversion efficiency of the FPLG can reach up to 45.82% with an intake pressure of 2.6 bar. … the internal combustion engine is the power system of most vehicles. Therefore, it is necessary to recover exhaust energy of ...
