Fuel Injector to Work as an Ionization Sensor and as an Injection Signal Detector in Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection Systems in Diesel and Direct Injection Gasoline Engines
Wayne State researchers have created an invention which uses one element in the engine, the fuel injector, to perform four tasks, injecting fuel, acting as an injection pulse detector, operating as a fuel injector malfunction detector and working as an ion sensor without modifying the fuel injector. Internal combustion engine control has become mo...

A High Efficiency Booster for Automotive and Other Applications
WSU faculty developed a high efficiency booster useful in devices where the gas turbine is the primary source of power and in hybrid automotive engines. Boosters are currently used in hybrid automotive engines or in stationary plants for the purpose of increasing the power output of the gas turbine. It is generally accepted that a good power p...
