A system to create electricity using Geothermal and/or Solar Energy as fuel.
The FCHTMC engine (Patent 7980080) is just the ideal power plant to provide unattended Electricity production. It is an advanced none-Miller or Otto cycle, 0 NOX device tailor-made to directly use imported solar and geothermal energy. It can also run on any of nine other liquid or vapor fuels when necessary. The system is lightweight, modular and can be easily transported to any location. The associated interface accessory components (Solar, Geothermal, and Dynamo-generator) are also just as lightweight and unobtrusive allowing them the same transportability, and selectable configuration.
When the engine device is set up at a geothermal source with the dynamo-generator, 24/7 operation is assured as there would then be no need for the Solar Energy or Fuel Energy components. If no geothermal input is available, an additional caloric storage device or two may be necessary to insure near 24/7 operation with 2 to 3 day inclement weather endurance. The caloric storage device looks similar to a tall water heater; but is much lighter in weight than a regular water heater!
The device meets or exceeds the DOE-FOA-0000239 requirements for advanced lubricants. This device requires no lubrication services over its projected lifetime of 20 or more years of 24/7 service.
The Dynamo and Solar Collector components may be prototyped primarily of plastic, while the engine and the fuel adapter require ceramic materials. The major component of the cost of the ceramic components is the ceramic material. Then they can be assembled by hand then loaded inside a vacuumed hood.
For actual low volume production runs, the primarily hand assembled system affords a moderate rate. However, with proper planning, automated production is possible. The use of heavy production machinery is not foreseen as necessary.
Once the FCHTMC components are operational, the electrical system testing is next. The system is then ready to test, using geothermal caloric energy to create electricity. For long distances, an insulated high-voltage line shall be necessary. The FCHTMC electrical generations system is that dot in the yard against the fence with not a single threat to the environment.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
