Aura Systems, Inc. and Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. have formed a technology development alliance to combine the all-fuel Cyclone Engine with the AuraGen induction motor and control unit (earlier post).
The partners anticipate that the integrated renewable power generation system will be able to provide a turn-key distributed solution for customers looking to produce grid-tied or stand-alone electricity from renewable and waste resources.
Cyclone’s advanced external combustion engines are capable of converting recovered exhaust heat from industrial furnaces, biomass gasifiers and other waste sources into mechanical power. The AuraGen technology fits well with Cyclone’s engines, especially in applications where fluctuations in heat create variations in engine RPM. AuraGen units produce consistent rated power, at a wide range of engine speeds, as well as generating AC and DC power simultaneously in a variety of voltages.
