OCTOBER 28, 2017
Researchers in China have developed a novel free-piston linear generator (FPLG) to recover exhaust waste heat efficiently from a vehicle engine. the internal combustion engine is the power system of most vehicles. Therefore, it is necessary to recover exhaust energy of vehicle engine, and many strategies and methods have been adopted to reduce the energy waste and improve the fuel utilization efficiency.
