Submission + - MYT Engine as Pump/Compressor for Underground Wind (examiner.com)

sterlingda writes: Yesterday, Slashdot ran a story with the title "The Future of Wind Power May Be Underground". Also published yesterday was a story about the MYT(tm) Engine (Massive Yet Tiny, by Angel Labs LLC), which also has application as a pump or compressor. The company says the engine as a pump/compressor is able to combine all three key elements of pumping/compressing — pressure, volume, and flow — into one device, making it the ideal candidate for applications like pumping and retrieving pressurized air from wind turbines into underground chambers, making the storage cycle much more efficient and cost effective. Yesterday's article was about applying the MYT engine technology to geothermal energy harvesting. On May 15, 2010, Angel Labs will be demonstrating its engine to the Oregon Section of the Society of Automotive Engineers. The MYT (Massive Yet Tiny) Engine by inventor Raphial Morgado, is an award-winning internal combustion engine of new design that features multiple firings in one cycle, producing enormous torque in a small area. They claim 40 times higher power to weight ratio, low parts count, low maintenance, high mechanical efficiency, and low pollution.
