Modifications to Lotus Free-Piston engine complete

The free-piston engine at Lotus waiting for collection

Our free piston engine has had it’s major modifications completed by Lotus and is now ready for one of us to go over to Norwich and pick it up. The engine has had a new 25kW linear motor/generator fitted. When we get it back to our labs in Lincoln, Control Techniques will be coming over to re-commission the electrical system and load dynamometer. After this we will be continuing our research into novel combustion strategies and power plants for hybrid electric vehicles.
