عنوان مقاله [English]
In this paper a new magnetic-solar engine for vehicles is proposed. Each cylinder of this engine includes two permanent magnets, which their magnetic forces drive the piston. One of these two permanent magnets acts as the piston of the corresponding cylinder. The other permanent magnet of each cylinder rotates cyclically such that the same and opposite poles of the two magnets are placed against each other periodically. The attraction/repulsion forces generated in this way inside the cylinders are coordinated to drive the crankshaft of the engine. The rotatable permanent magnet of each cylinder is rotated by a DC motor, which is fed by the solar panels of the proposed magnetic-solar engine. One of important advantages of the proposed engine is elimination of expensive and heavy induction motors and their associated equipment. The proposed engine is also equipped with batteries to store/retrieve solar power, which increases the useable time of the engine. The constructed solar-magnetic engine is registered as a patent in the Iran’s patent office with the number of 85138.
