A novel turbo rotary engine, operating according to a novel thermodynamic cycle, having an efficient compression phase, a limited temperature combustion phase followed by a long power extraction phase is designed. Thermodynamic and structural design and analysis of this novel engine is carried out and two prototypes are manufactured according to these analysis. High performance figures such as torque, power and low specific fuel consumption are calculated. Also the component tests of the manufactured prototypes are completed and their results are demonstrated.

Karaca, Mehmet; Akmandor, İbrahim Sinan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2005)
The thesis proposes an overall performance estimation procedure for a new turbo-rotary compound engine (TURC) and an associated novel thermodynamic cycle. In this engine, two or multiple spools are lined up in series within the engine. In the front spool, positive displacement rotary vane type turbines drive axial compressor the performance of which were estimated using stage stacking calculations. In the back spool, axial turbine stages drive positive displacement rotary vane type compressors, the performa...

A rolling piston engine, operating according to a novel thermodynamic cycle is designed. Thermodynamic and structural analysis of this novel engine is carried out and thermodynamic and structural variables of the engine were calculated. The losses in the engine, friction and leakage were calculated and their effects on the engine were demonstrated.
Performance analysis of a compression ignition internal combustion engine using superheated ethanol vapor
Aksu, Çağdaş; Bayka, Ahmet Demir; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2011)
The aim of this study is to experimentally measure performance characteristics of a compression ignition (CI) internal combustion engine using superheated ethanol vapor. The engine is a 1.3L inline 4 cylinder direct injection (DI) turbocharged compression ignition (CI) engine. While the engine will be fed with superheated ethanol as homogeneous fuel-air mixture through intake manifold, the amount of diesel fuel that the engine requires to run at idle will also be supplied in order to initiate combustion. Et...
Design, control and optimization of vehicle suspensions with inerters
Gerger, Orhan; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Başlamışlı, Çağlar; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
Inerter is proposed as a mechanical equivalent of the capacitors available in electric circuits. The main advantage of the inerter is to provide a wider design space for a vehicle suspension by adding another suspension element next to spring and damper. Therefore, fine tuning of a suspension performance can be made without subjected to heavy trade-offs. The effect of the addition of inerter to a vehicle suspension and performance of the selected suspension arrangements with passive and semi-active inerters...
Efficiency Optimization of a Direct Torque Controlled Induction Motor used in Hybrid Electric Vehicles
Sergaki, Eleftheria S.; Moustaizis, Stavros D. (2011-09-10)
The main contribution of this paper is the application of Loss Minimization control algorithm of a three-phase squirrel-cage induction motor which is used in parallel with an internal combustion engine (ICE), in hybrid electric vehicles (HEY). During steady state operation of the electric motor, the electric motor's optimal motor flux profile minimizes the electric motor losses and maximizes the overall HEN efficiency, hybridization factor (HF). During steady state operation of the direct torque controlled ...
