Eng/Gen HomeRussell Engine Generator Advantages

Consumer Advantages

  • Inexpensive to purchase
  • Inexpensive to operate
  • Inexpensive to maintain
  • Plug-and-Play replaceability
  • Reduced fuel costs
  • Reduced emissions
  • Vibration free operation
  • Increased dependability
  • Increased durability
  • Increased service life
  • Multi function security (i.e. The Eng/Gen used in a vehicle application can provide emergency electrical power for home use, or for sale to the grid.)

Manufacturing Advantages

  • Low parts count
  • No undeveloped technologies required
  • No dynamic seals (except for piston rings)
  • Most parts are cast with minimal finishing
  • No exotic materials
  • No exotic procedures
  • No unusually close tolerances
  • No unrealistic assembly procedures

Shaftless Design Advantages

  • Low parts count
  • Vibration free operation
  • No undeveloped technologies required
  • No dynamic seals (except for piston rings)
  • Most parts are cast with minimal finishing
  • 4 x the number of combustions (or more), per cylinder during a single revolution (greater power density than conventional 4 cycle engines)
  • Direct conversion of rotational energy into electrical energy
  • No torque transferred outside the Eng/Gen case
  • Sealed construction (waterproof & dustproof)
  • Reduced internal energy losses, due to:
    • elimination of vibration
    • optimized piston movement
    • free escape of exhaust gasses
    • low pressure purge and intake cycle
    • direct conversion to electrical energy
  • Reduced internal friction losses, due to:
    • two cycle piston movement
    • low number of moving parts
    • low RPM operation
    • low friction bearings
    • elimination of mechanical final drive

Environmental Advantages

  • Increased energy output (per unit of fuel)
  • Reduced fuel usage (based on output)
  • Reduced carbon dioxide emissions
  • Reduced nitrogen oxide emissions
  • Reduced heat emissions
  • Wasted fuel consumption is eliminated (in vehicular use with Series Hybrid Drive System)
  • Ideal for future (zero pollution) hydrogen fueled applications
