Pneumatic Electric Compound Engine



The "Pneumatic Electric Compound Engine " is an automotive engine system that drafts pneumatic pressure and reintroduces produced electricity from the compound dynamo that also increases its electrical output to then yield sufficient electrical current to power an electric motor.


The final out put is volt regulated and fed through a potentiometer / variable resistor "throttle " system then being connected to a foot pedal accelerator with dual circuit paths. The first circuit path,  upon the throttle, is then a direct circuit to the automobiles electric motor then connected to an automotive transmission and drive line rotating the wheels. The second circuit is then the current re-introduction circuit that increases the electricity level to the generator's system electric motor to then compensate for the loading placed upon the generator  by the main electric motor connected to the automotive transmission.


The design implements a "rotary" style piston air compressor that only runs to the refill the pneumatic pressure tank's initial "Start Up" pneumatic displacement. The air compressor is not required to "run" all the time. This reduces wear upon the mechanism extending it's life.

The design is is a pneumatic " draft cycle" that re-pressurizes itself faster than the displaced air then with an electric motor to then counter tilt the resistance produced when using a ratio gear set to increase the systems speed. The compound dynamo the re-introduces a controlled percentile of the generated electrical current until sufficient speed and electricity is produced to then allow for sustained locomotion... ( ie. until the generated electricity is sufficient to power and electric automobile as described in the above design system).


As with high velocity flow systems especial care must be taken regarding the static electricity production and electrical capacitance ( electrical charge retention) . The design "grounds to an arc dissipation  "box" ( gas tight chamber )  then containing  inert Argon Noble gas. The current may be harvested within the "plasma box" and re-introduced into the system. The flow tubes are electrically grounded and electrically insulated upon the exterior surfaces.


Since this is a high speed mechanism the the motors and generators will then be explosion proof with a force shield "shock casing" ( prevents manufacturing defect from causing a projectile hazard). The motors and generators final casings being a  sealed envelope will prevent environmental Ozone at excessive levels. Low level ozone is an environmental pollutant...


The "Pneumatic Electric Compound Engine" system is electrically insulated from the chassis and passenger compartment of the vehicle and is weather safe in it's final form to then not allow water to in advertenly cause a shock hazard.
