YankeeDiesel’s New Features

The purpose of this page will be to show how the throttle and planetary crank work together. The variable capacity supercharger prepares air for injection into the combustion chamber. The combustion chamber varies volume and boost to maintain a constant compression ratio. The secondary expansion chamber extends the power stroke and heat extraction. The supercharger and secondary expansion chamber are essentially mirrors of each other. One prepares the air charge and the other deals with the combustion gases.
