Presentation Summary

The Libralato rotary hybrid engine is a compelling new concept of engine architecture and thermodynamic cycle, solving the problems of the Wankel engine (poor combustion, overheating, seal wear) through its exchange of gases between three dynamic chambers and its non-contact, long escape path, sealing. Predicted to be as efficient as a diesel engine (>40%) using gasoline, but 50% smaller and 30% lower cost, its key advantages are its exceptionally high, asymmetric, compression and expansion ratios and its integrated exhaust gas recirculation (<30% EGR) for ultra low emissions. It enables PHEV systems to fit into standard engine bays, cost competitively.
