Abstract:
The aim of this paper is to propose a design approach for a two-stroke free-piston diesel engine. A simulation tool is provided in order to study the behavior and the design of the engine coupled with a linear alternator. A thermodynamic and dynamical analysis, which makes use of both classic thermodynamic equations and empirical formulas typically used for internal combustion engines, is presented together with theoretical results of the operational characteristics.
