SCHOELL CYCLE REGENERATIVE RANKINE CYCLE ENGINE TO THE AUTOMOBILE. Statement. The regenerative Rankine cycle reciprocating steam engine is ideal for powering any road vehicle. The speed/torque requirements of vehicles exactly matches the identical output delivered by this engine system. The Rankine cycle engine also exhibits totally clean combustion when burning pure bio fuel oils without any pollution control hardware or electronics.
Historically this power source in vehicles has not been given the advanced development needed nor taken to the higher levels of operation required to make the cycle competitive to the internal combustion engine. This deficiency has been resolved with the development of the Cyclone engine.
