ECONOMIC ENERGY PRODUCTION WITH GAS ENGINES

WIRTSCHAFTLICHE ENERGIEERZEUGUNG DURCH GASMOTOREN

Most gas engines in practical use are modified petrol or diesel engines which range from the smallest through normal vehicle engines to the largest diesel motors. There are therefore available gas engines covering a wide range of speed and performance. The availability today of anti-knock natural gases, mainly derived from methane, enables the economic introduction of gas engines which will have the same efficiency as diesel engines. The exhaust gas turbo-driven superchargers with appropriate procedures for the cooling of supercharged gases points to important increases in performance. The clean low-pollutant combustion also facilitates use in areas with particularly severe environmental protection controls. Because the waste heat consisting of water, oil and exhaust gas can be relatively easily used, there results a particularly interesting area of use for stationary installations, which can be utilized both in combination and singly for the production of energy. /TRRL/
