Comments of the inventor:
As convert detonates fuel vapor, which yields about fourteen times higher pressure than max pressure of the original Suzuki, I limited fuel supply to 10% of the original spec to avoid cylinder bursting, yet the measured power output reading was exceeding max power of original Suzuki fully fueled. Also no traces of pollutants in emissions (zero toxic emissions). I also run the convert on many fuels including Hydrogen. No visible performance were noticed, yet the most important was that the convert runs very well on Acetylene that is already in production and the distribution infrastructure exists. This fuel is important as it is made out of coal and not petroleum.
After a short analysis I came to conclusion, that it has to be related to the power, which we can define as energy released from fuel in time. Since the detonation of the fuel vapors mixed with air releases the energy about 1000 times faster than combustion, the power rises proportionally. The calculations are suggesting, that fuel supply at a level about 14 times lower, than before, will result in about the same power output, that the engine had in its original, not modified state - at its former fuel supply level.
The conversion includes:
Question: Since such converted engine has much larger efficiency, does it still need a cooling system?
Answer: The engine, after conversion, has been cooled by direct water injection, which has preveted the piston meltdown, since the detonation rises the temperature to about 10000 Celsius. When fuel's exploding, the high temperature gives IR absorbed then by water, which in effect turns the water into steam. That steam is the main part of exhaustion, and because of the high share of the steam the exhaustion's temperature drops quite fast. The steam also preserves heat, which is converted into extra work. Such conversion is done during recompression once decompressed mix's of exhausts and steam, which can be then again decompressed in additional work cycle. The process lasts as long, as the exhausts are warm. When the last recompression cycle finishes, the steam contains condensed water, which signals end of the cycle, when the exhausts contain energy any longer. The valve opens up, then the exhaust mix comes into separator, that is separating water from CO2. The pure CO2 is then released, and the water can be used for cooling.
Q: Can one really dispose of the gear-box?
A: Gear-case isn't needed any longer, since the torque is about 100 times larger, than before the conversion. It's larger, because in gun-engine the explosion's pressure is repeated, when the crank shaft is arranged horizontally.
Q: If so - what about bearing (especially what about the pans of the crank shaft)? Perhaps their durability will be shorter, when the forces are higher?
A: There is additional piston introduced, floating on air bag, therefore the explosion won't introduce that much stress in the connecting rod. Actually the stress there comes only from load. And because of this the wear is about 20 times lower, than in the case of not converted engine. High forces are have an effect during very short period - and are of lower value, than in original engine - therefore much higher durability as a result.
As inventor says: it's surprisingly quiet probably due to:
