Hydrogen Cars

with the condition of the Earth's atmospheric gases in the future. In just a very short time, scientists produced a new vehicle which only emits water out of its exhaust rather than carbon monoxide and other toxic pollutants in modern day internal combustion engines. The Hydrogen automobiles do not require gasoline or ethanol to function, but all they require in Hydrogen. As the name entails, Hydrogen automobiles use Hydrogen as its main source of power. Without the need of gasoline, America and many...

about INGNITION SYSTEM An ignition system is a system for igniting a fuel-air mixture. Ignition systems are well known in the field of internal combustion engines such as those used in petrol (gasoline) engines used to power the majority of motor vehicles, but they are also used in many other applications such as in oil-fired and gas-fired boilers, rocket engines and so on. BREAK POINT TYPE This type of ignition system has the most basic construction.  With this type, the primary current and ignition...

Invention of the Steam Engine

INVENTION OF THE STEAM ENGINE Mankind’s interrelation with manufacturing systems has a long history. Nowadays we see manufacturing systems and their applications as systems in which goods are produced and delivered to the suitable places where we can obtain them. We are conscious of the fact that everything we consume or obtain is produced at some facilities. We are also aware of the fact that many components involve at these processes such as laborers, capital, and machines. Nevertheless, majority...

Difference Between Electric And Hybrid Cars

high sales for a decade because the was easy to drive and quiet compared to the gasoline cars which need more manual effort to operate. About the same time Fernand Porsche created the first hybrid electric car that powered by electricity and combustion engine. By 1935, the number of electric cars decreased significantly in presence of cheap taxes crude oil. 2- Composition: 2.1- Electric cars: The electric car contains three main parts: a rechargeable battery, controller, and electric motor. The...

Energy of the Future

disappointed. I though very hard about purchasing me a hybrid vehicle. A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that uses two or more power sources to move a vehicle. (Wikipedia, 2007)These vehicles contain one or more electric motors and an internal combustion engine. There are many types of power sources that can be used on a hybrid vehicle. Some powers sources include gasoline or diesel fuel, rechargeable energy storage system, hydrogen, compressed air, wind, solar, human powered, compressed natural...

PISTON Introduction: In this topic am to explain the piston its working and uses. A piston is a component of reciprocating engines, reciprocating pumps, gas compressors and pneumatic cylinders, among other similar mechanisms. It is the moving component that is contained by a cylinder and is made gas-tight by piston rings. In an engine, its purpose is to transfer force from expanding gas in the cylinder to the crankshaft via a piston rod and/or connecting rod. In a pump, the function...

Diesel Engine Stereotypes

whereas driving a diesel-powered truck shows that you do not care about environment with your smoky, loud engine and you can usually be found at a gas station fueling up. However, are the stereotypes correct? With advancement in clean diesel technology, lower costs in overall maintenance and better fuel efficiency as well as a safer, stronger engine, there is a clear advantage within diesel engines. First, let’s look at cost using a GMC Sierra 2500HD. Buying the truck initially is more costly as the...

Hydrogen Fuel

Hydrogen has a high specific energy, high flame speed, wide range of flammability, and clean burning characteristics which suggest a possibility of high performance in internal combustion engines (ICE). These attributes have been realized for more than half a century since the onset of hydrogen engine development. In the early 1990s, FSEC conducted research on using hydrogen in an ICE. This work resulted in the development of a mixed fuel called HYTEST. Today, automobile manufacturers and DOE continue...

Pro and Cons for Electric Car

they don't produce the pollution associated with internal combustion engines. According to the Electric Vehicle Association of Canada, or EVAC, even EVs recharged from coal-powered electric generators cut carbon emission roughly in half. EVs recharged from cleaner forms of electrical power generation, such as hydropower and nuclear plants, can reduce carbon emissions to less than one percent of those currently produced by internal combustion engines. So, even in the worst case scenario, cars operated...
