CYCLONE POWER TECHNOLOGIES
POMPANO BEACH, FL, July 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cyclone Power Technologies (OTC BB: CYPW) announced that it has entered into its first microgrid installation contract to provide systems that provide over 3 Megawatts of electricity, hot water and 72 hour storage backup through our patent pending Thermal Storage Units for over 365,000 square feet of medical facilities in Palm Beach County Florida beginning 1Q 2019. The power purchase agreement provides for ten years of power at a discount to the current rates paid to the local power company that has historically provided electricity, with benchmarks and adjustments annually based on industry pricing standards. The value of the power to be delivered over the ten years is estimated to be approximately $11 million dollars with no increase in power pricing based upon 2017 electricity rates.
Consultant to the Board of Directors John Flynn commented “Cyclone has worked almost ten years to build a product that could deliver a competitive, reliable patented solution with broad applications. When the Cyclone Mark 10 launches, estimated in late 2018, it can allow Cyclone to feel confident entering into the micro grid marketplace, which is predicted to grow from an estimated $1.4 billion dollars currently to an approximate $17 billion dollars in 2025 according to Grandview Research.”
Cyclone’s power system features a number of proprietary patented or patent pending elements that are being deployed commercially for the first time. The system will feature unique and patent pending solar collectors which are engineered to be hurricane resistant, a proprietary thermal storage unit and the Cyclone Mark 10 engine which will provide power atop a UL certified generator system built by a third-party partner who is currently a leader in the generator business worldwide. Cyclone expects to install this system in the first quarter of 2019.
“Florida law requires alternative power solutions for all elderly facilities," states Frankie Fruge, President. Fruge adds, “Florida passed SB 7028 recently, which ratifies a Department of Elderly Affairs rule to ensure that assisted living facilities have an alternative power source.” According to the Florida Senate website, the rule was developed in response to the death of 12 nursing home residents in Hollywood, Florida, from heat exposure due to power outages resulting from Hurricane Irma in September 2017. This mandate will create opportunities for micro grid facilities serving the elderly marketplace.
Cyclone has presented its all fuel, solar heat driven, thermal generation engine with zero emissions as a green alternative to the backup diesel generators that many facilities have, and with a small discount to grid pricing and a tax credit this is a financially attractive alternative to this emerging marketplace. Cyclone has several bank and finance sources who have indicated they can provide capital that allows companies signing a ten year power purchase agreement to install a micro grid with zero capital outlay.
Is this the electric car we have been waiting for?
I hope so.
No battery, it uses a chemical reaction to produce 48 volts.
Drives 620 miles between fill-ups.
760Hp / 140KW.
Accelerates to 60 MPH in 2.4 seconds. (2019 ZR1 Corvette 2.9 / 2009 Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 2.4)
Can achieve 186 MPH.
What is not to like?
Extract CO2 from the sky.
Extract hydrogen from water.
Build a hydrocarbon molecule.
Assemble liquid fuels such as gasoline and diesel.
Turning plastic into fuel is a great idea.
There are plants in Europe, and Asia doing just that.
I am yet to find one in operation within the US.
The best part of the idea is eliminating waste plastic.
However, burning it as diesel or gasoline is less attractive.
I suggest instead using a Cyclone engine will save construction expense by burning syngas and making electricity.
Solving The Plastic Waste Problem
Is a Cyclone Green Engine just a steam engine?
The answer depends on your definition of a steam engine.
Steam engines of the past consumed water.
Fuel such as wood and coal was burned in a furnace.
The heat was used to boil water which would expand to steam in a cylinder driving a piston down, turning an output shaft.
Then the water was exhaust out of the engine.
Is the engine is a nuclear power ship or submarine a steam engine?
Heat is generated by the use of a nuclear reaction.
Water is heated and boiled, then expanded to steam in a turbine engine turning an output shaft.
The water is then recycled to the nuclear reactor.
The water is now lethal.
So shall we call this engine a nuclear, a steam or turbine engine?
The Cyclone engine boils water by either burning a fuel or by collecting heat from an external source such as the sun or a furnace exhaust.
The heat boils water which expanse into steam driving a piston down a cylinder rotating an output shaft.
The water is then recycled to the furnace chamber.
So shall we call the Cyclone engine a furnace engine, a steam engine, or a piston engine?
The answer is yes all of the above.
BTW google modern steam engine.
You will find the Cyclone engine there.
This is a tempory webpage for Pacific Cyclone Power Technologies.
Once I begin delivering engines I will launch the new focus website.
This page will provide a little background information and updates.
I am John Nijssen Distributor for Cyclone Power Technologies (CPT).
I will begin by telling you the original Cyclone engine design has been dramatically improved upon many times since it was first versions built in 2006.
Much of the information about the engines found on the CPT website is now out of date.
Most of the moving parts have been eliminated. This reduces surface wear, potential part failures and reduces overall cost and construction time.
Ceramic bearings became available in 2009 and solved many problems associated with lubrication using water.
Several more improvements will be made on the next generations of engines planned for production in 2020.
Currently, the production focus is on the MK 3 and the MK 10 engines.
Because these engines produce power in a different way than gasoline and diesel engines, do not compare horsepower or even torque.
The 100Hp motor/engine is powerful enough to move a heavy truck with no need of a gearbox.
Any Cyclone engine images or stories you will see online were earlier single prototype engines for testing an evaluation.
I discovered these engines in 2009 while looking for a more thermally efficient engine to offer to an industrial application.
I was working on bringing natural gas irrigation engine into new emission law requirements and built a 350 small block Chevrolet engine which I tuned to make maximum torque at 1800 RPM. The idea was to lower fuel consumption, but I quickly realized I was limited by thermal efficiency.
Volumetric efficiency involves increasing air flow, which is great for racing engines, but of little help under 25000 RPM.
I started searching for a better engine design. I found a variety of ideas, most improvements on the functions of the Otto four Cycle engine.
Nothing was in production that I could purchase, so I temporarily set aside my desire to develop a better industrial engine.
I considered the Cyclone engines as having the most potential to be manufactured soon and being the most efficient.
I approached Cyclone power Technologies in 2017 and asked if I could manufacture a version of the engine myself.
I was asked if I would represent the product instead, so I became a distributor with a focus on countries with a coastline with the Pacific ocean.
I see a need for electricity production on both Islands and continents. The sun is the most obvious source.
Our new One Mega-Watt Microgrid Generator System is ideal being modular and scalable using the sun as the fuel source.
Eventually, you will see these engines in cars and trucks.

It looks very encourging.
Who needs Cyclone produced electricity when we have solar panels?
The short answer is it depends on the application.
Solar panels are currently used on house rooftops and parking lots where the surface is great enough to produce enough electricity to power the home, a classroom, charge a car run air conditioning etc.
While the photovoltaic process is fantastic, it is far from ideal. The need for chemical batteries, panel maintenance, and conversion efficiency are the main undesirables. You can't strap a solar panel on a car and expect to drive it. It takes time to collect enough usable energy.
For multi-story industrial builds typically the roof space and the parking lot can not contain enough photovoltaic panels to fully power the building.
CPT parabolic trough technology essentially triples the available surface area.
Watch the video First Introduction for details.
Renewable Energy Resources are very desirable but not the only solution to powering our future. The real goal is clean energy.
By developing higher efficiency engines both electricity and motion can be produced more efficiently with less pollution and CO2.
Energy storage is also important. Chemical batteries are not the only option.
Photovoltaic or solar power is not the only way to harness energy from the sun.
Our goal is to provide technology solutions to both provide energy and better use of all energy resources.
This hardwood tree can reach approximately 10’-15’ the first year, and a mature height of 30’ – 60’. The Empress Tree is incredibly easy to grow and is able to tolerate infertile and acid soils and drought conditions better than any other tree known to man.
At maturity, the Empress Tree uses only approximately 25 gallons of water per year, ideally waste or grey water. It releases about 13-15 lbs of oxygen per day while removing almost 50 lbs of carbon dioxide each year.
WTE (waste-to-energy) plants provide close to a million homes with heating and over a quarter of a million homes with electricity.”A good number to remember is that three tons of waste contains as much as energy as one ton of fuel oil … so there is a lot of energy in waste,” said spokesperson for? Resundskraft, one of Sweden's leading energy companies. So, if Sweden burns approximately two million tons of waste annually, that produces roughly 670,000 tons worth of fuel oil energy.
Sweden has, over time, developed a large capacity and skill in efficient and profitable waste treatment. In spite of the million tons of garbage produced by Swedes, the plants have an overcapacity. This is an interesting business to Sweden by importing waste from other European countries. Sweden imports 800,000 tons yearly, mainly from Norway, UK, Ireland, and Italy. The English government is increasing taxes on landfills every year, so there’s a pressure on finding other solutions than landfills in England. A number of European nations don’t have the capacity to incinerate garbage themselves due to various taxes and bans across the EU that prevent landfill waste. There’s where Sweden comes in to buy garbage other countries can’t dispose of themselves at a reasonable cost.
But trash burning isn’t without controversy. Some critics claim the process as anything but green because it sends more pollution and toxins into the air. Sweden has adopted regulated, low-emission processes. The incineration process isn’t perfect, but technological advancements and the introduction of flue-gas cleaning have reduced airborne dioxins “very small amounts,” according to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
Japan has more challenges than almost any other country being a small, densely populated island bound nation with few natural resources, but a huge demand for energy and commodities. The approximate 127 million residents and large industrial base place a huge burden on the country to provide sustainable solutions to its waste management problems. Innovative and efficient technologies were needed on a massive scale that would not only solve the waste disposal issue, but provide a partial solution to the countries need for energy and raw materials.
Japan has pursued a strategy of recovering the maximum amount of value from its waste as possible and since the 1970's over 1,500 waste to energy and resource recovery facilities have been established. With ten million tons a year of plastic waste being produced and having the highest calorific value of any waste stream, this oil rich material was an obvious target for recycling. However, recycling companies now have to pay heavily to secure the best polyolefin feedstocks (PP,PS & PP -- The 3P's) forcing some of the smaller recyclers out of business. The challenge in this situation is to process the plastic wastes that others find difficult to recycle or has little commercial value. Last year 2,750,000 tons of this material had to be landfilled or incinerated due to a lack of re-processing capacity.
The New Cyclone Green Engine
5 to 1600 Horsepower
The New Cyclone Green engine (NCG engine) is a type of regenerative engine and is one of the greenest engines available.
Being an External Combustion engine it emits fewer pollutants into the atmosphere and Zero NOX compared to internal combustion (IC) engines.
Due to the better thermal efficiency compared to IC engines the NCG engines emit less carbon dioxide (CO2) than older designs.
NCC Engines are a modern-day self-contained steam engine, ingeniously designed to achieve high thermal efficiencies through a compact heat-regenerative process. The engines use gaseous or liquid fuel and any heat source to create more power running on virtually any fuel or heat source - including bio-diesels, syngas or solar-thermal.
The concept behind the NCG engine is a combination of Rankine, Diesel, and Carnot cycles known as the Schoell cycle.
NCC Engines have the power and versatility to drive everything from portable electric generators, microgrids and pumps to cars, trucks, off-road construction vehicles (eg bulldozers) boats, and locomotives.
This engine can burn any type of fuel, including powdered coal, orange peel, palm oil, cottonseed oil, algae,
used motor oil and fryer grease.
New fuel soon available such as waste plastics and tires converted to fuel via a pyrolysis process can be used to both cleaning up the environment and make it profitable by producing electricity.
The electricity can be used to split water into H2 and O2 for use in hydrogen fuel cells.
Or the hydrogen can be mixed with carbon dioxide extracted from the atmosphere produce zero gain CO2 liquid fuels.
All traditional fuels, diesel, gasoline/petrol, propane/LPG, butane, methanol, ethanol natural gas can be used without modification and burn more completely therefore efficiently approx. 34% thermally efficient. This means oil companies will be able to better compete with electric cars and hydrogen fuel cell electric cars.
Engines can run on 100% biofuels (i.e., it does not require a 15% or less mixed with fossil fuels) such as those made from food wastes, algae timber waste, and manure.
Traditional gas or diesel powered internal combustion engine ignites fuel under high pressure inside its cylinders, requiring precise fuel to air ratios. NCG engines burn fuel under atmospheric pressure, how the formation of nitrogen oxide (NOX) is avoided.
You could burn nitromethane in an NCG engine, but our engine runs so quietly you won't get that nitro pop we love so much. That loud exhaust noise is produced by a very large amount of fuel burning so slowly it is still on fire in the exhaust pipes, in fact far past the end of the pipes resulting on thrust force.
All current IC piston engines burn the fuel as the piston is moving. Compression requires power robbing from power produced by combustion. Once the air-fuel mix is ignited it burns very rapidly, but just short of exploding, which is both louder and destructive as a result of pressure striking out in all direction rather than a focused "push" on the piston. Because the piston is moving rapidly the flame front of the burning fuel is "chasing" it. Heat is being absorbed into the piston and other surfaces. The enlarging of the cylinder space by the declining piston reduces pressure, which reduces heat and results in less work being done as the piston declines. Then the exhaust valve opens when fuel is still burning (in both nitro and petrol engines) which enters the atmosphere as noise and chemical pollution.
The NCG engine solves all those problems, less noise, less waste resulting in toxic fumes, and more work is done per dollar spent.
The NCG Engine’s patented cyclone combustion chamber allows for a longer burn time, resulting in slow & efficient combustion, extremely low amount of heat loss to the environment which means that more carbon particles are incinerated before being exhausted.
The NCG Engine burns fuel at low temperatures approximately 2200°F, below the temperature at which most harmful NOx gases are created.
Typical IC engines run at 4500°F in the combustion chamber, emit 1500°F into the exhaust manifold and hold 800°F in the catalytic converters.
NCG engine exhausted gases run through a heat exchanger before leaving the engine, lowering release temperature to approx. 350 degree enough heat to run a smaller NCG engine to capture more energy. Due to this design extremely, low amount of heat loss to the environment
The NCG engine exhaust is virtually noise-free. No catalytic converter is needed.
Efficiency: Engine efficiencies are nearing the top diesel engines in the market today. Higher efficiency means less fuel required to produce the same work. Unlike ICE, turbine, and Diesel power plants, Cyclone new engine maintains a flat line efficiency no matter the load.
Noise –Vibration: Low noise, vibration, and infrared signatures provide an ideal power source for military and conventional vehicles.
Manufacturing and Cost
LOWER Cost of Basic Engine: The New Cyclone Green Engine is a one-piece unit that travels without an "entourage" of complicated components. the NEW Cyclone Engine has fewer parts to manufacture, assemble and, ultimately, break-down or wear- out. Eliminating these subsystems reduces cost, size, andweight while increasing overall efficiency and reliability of the engine.
The NEW Engine DOES NOT need:
A catalytic converter or muffler
An Oil pump or motor oil: Water (de-ionized) is the NCG Engine’s sole lubricating fluid, which means there is no waste oil to change, dispose or leak into the ground.
A transmission or transmission fluid
An ignition control system
Hence reducing cost, weight, space and increasing reliability.
This means that even a 100 HP NCG engine will weigh only 320 lbs (145 kg) whereas similar other engine weights will range between 500 to 600 Kg.
Manufacturing & Re-assembly Time: NCG Engines have fewer components than other types of engines, hence requires less manufacturing time
Spare cost: NCC Engines have only:-
and uses water as a lubricator (Saving in lubrication cost)
Its components are made of non-corrosive materials.
Thus, reducing the construction cost of the engine drastically and fewer parts to manufacture, assemble and, ultimately, break-down or wear-out.
Three delivery types of Engines
Cyclone Engine 5 hp to 1600 hp recaptures heat from external sources to create steam, which powers the engine. The engine is delivered without its combustion chamber/heat exchanger and a heat exchanger is integrated into the heat source this is for primarily electric power generator while producing zero emissions.
The Solar Cyclone Engine 45 hp to 1600 hp comes with a Thermal Storage Unit with an internal heat exchanger in the TSU which stores the heat from Solar and then runs the Cyclone Engine 24/7 from Solar. These engines can also run a grid-tied or primary electric power generator while producing zero emissions.
The 3rd type produces 5 hp to 1600 hp and is designed for automotive, marine propulsion, power generation, off-road equipment, industrial co-generation, and specialty applications and comes with its own combustion chamber that can be fueled with any liquid or vapor fuel or powdered fuel with no changes to the unit.
The following are a few of the many possible heat sources for the engine systems:
Aluminum Reverberatory Furnace
Steel, Electric, Arc Furnace
Turbine or Reciprocating Engine Exhaust
Wood and Coal Stoves
Thus, waste heat recovery is both technologically and economically practical.

Cyclone Power Technologies Files Patents for Thermal Storage and Thermal Storage Medium And Update to Shareholders
We feel this is a major step in securing our place in the Heat Storage Battery market and puts us as a Solar storage preferred supplier.”— Frankie Fruge, company presidentPOMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- POMPANO BEACH, FL, February 8, 2018, Cyclone Power Technologies (OTCPK: CYPW) has filed for patents for the Cyclone Thermal Storage Unit and the Cyclone Thermal Medium. “We feel this is a major step in securing our place in the Heat Storage Battery market and puts us as a Solar storage preferred "supplier,” exclaims Frankie Fruge, company president.
The Cyclone Thermal Storage Unit (TSU) is a propriety technology developed by Cyclone. This technology uses salt water to produce a water proof and mold proof cement system developed by Genesis. That can be built on site in areas that have no or limited access to fresh water. Our recently announced new subsidiary, Cyclone Thermal Storage Genesis LLC, has the exclusive rights to this method for the Thermal Storage Unit and the exclusive rights to produce the Thermal Storage Unit for mass production.
The Cyclone Thermal Medium (CTM), also a proprietary technology. It is a benign storage agent that does not solidify and can retain high temperatures. It will flow thru the Cyclone trough system and gather heat from the sun and move it to the Cyclone Thermal Storage Unit. The heat is then stored so that it can continue to generate electricity at its full rated capacity DAY AND NIGHT for six sunless days in a row. This is a monumental breakthrough for the Microgrid market, as small TSUs are otherwise not commercially available. The TSU can also be used to store energy from bio-mass and other heat sources to be used to heat water, heat homes, or produce electricity or a combination of all three.
A Brief Update to Cyclone Shareholders:
Cyclone is continuing with their core business model. This will include the basic long-term business model of licensing OEM’s, Engine manufacturers and Distributors. All sales will flow thru Cyclone Power and sold to OEM’s and Distributors. There are several in place as stated in previous press releases and we are working with them to get engines and products into the marketplace.
As stated in our previous update to shareholders, “Opportunities for Cyclone with long-term capital advantages have presented themselves and could lead to a strategic move”. Now that this has happened it puts Cyclone in a financial position to move at an accelerated pace and bring the core business model to fruition.
Based on the totality of all the facts, Cyclone is undergoing the following:
New employees are being hired and previous employees are coming back some at a part-time basis as we grow into production.
Professionals are on board to assist in sales and engineering of the Microgrid System and to set up distributors for the generator market.
Cyclone has had meetings and discussions and our two manufacturers are ready to build the first production models of the Mark 1 and the Mark 3. TAW is ready to start the integration.
The Microgrid market is being looked at by large organizations all over the world, and we feel this will the next generation of “green energy” for the world environment. Cyclone’s Microgram system, with longer-term storage capabilities, allows anyone from the largest corporations to individual homeowners to generate their own power and then sell the unused portion back to the main grid at potentially premium prices. Cyclone is currently exploring new blockchain technology to allow individuals to buy and sell power at their own price to the main grid without having to go through the “red tape” of the main energy provider.
Cyclone’s staff appreciates all the support and let’s looks to the future.

You Can Help Reduce CO2 Levels.
The Royal Empress tree is the fastest growing tree and consumes ten times as much CO2.
If you burn it the CO2 is re-released, so using a highly efficient energy production device like a Cyclone engine becomes very important
While the Tesla car company is facing challenges, Elon Musk is working, not just talking.
I support the search for a better energy source and technology exploration even if it might be a competitor to the use of Cyclone engines.
We all need to make a living, but the people who will follow after us new a healthy planet to live on.
Here are three technologies that impress me.
These companies will be competing with each other and with me, but I respect them.
I support the concept of electric cars.
To be practical the electricity must come from a zero emission source.
Reduced emission fuel-burning engines are the transition meduim.
Cyclone engines will fall into this transition gap between now and the next several years.
The engine can use BTU rich fuels such as diesil or cleaner more expensive hydrogen fuel.
Because the fuel is fully burned, less pollution is created, and the higher thermal efficiency produces less CO2.
Currently, battery life and toxicity are the fundamental problems related to electric cars.
Whether better batteries will be developed, or safe ground-based/picked up technologies (think of toy slot cars) will be introduced, we will just need to wait and see.
It is my goal to build a few prototype cars using Cyclone engines to see how practical in the real world they will be.
Don't expect the current major automotive manufactures to offer you this technology.
The forward-thinking car companies are focused on hydrogen cell engine technology.
The problem with advanced superior technology and the Tesla cars exemplify this, is that they are too expensive for the bulk of the population to buy.
Wealthy people are not buying low fuel consumption cars to save money, as it would take a lifetime to pay off the car with the fuel saving, they buy them the way they buy any luxury item because the can and they want to.
Until electric cars become practical in terms of single charge mileage capability, and low-cost purchase, zero pollution transportation is still some distance in the future.
That said, EVs charged from residential solar panels, driven locally are both practical and desirable.
Currently, Pyrolysis Plants are converting plastics to liquid fuels. However, using a Cyclone Engine the hot Syn-Gas can be used immediately to produce electricity.
(Syngas :- methane, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, dioxide, hydrocarbon)
This will reduce the size and cost of building these plants.
A Cyclone Engine in a car or truck will produce less pollution than current engines and combined with a Pyrolysis Plant clean electricity.
Why we use Oil.
The oil company do not pay for the oil found in the ground, they pay to remove it through the purchase of machinery and human labor. The oil its self has no value until it is refined into liquid fuels such as diesel, gasoline/petrol, kerosene/jet fuel and into plastics.
The foundation to these fuels and byproducts such as nylon, plastic, asphalt, lipstick, tires, chewing gum, candles, food additives, perfume, insecticide, deodorant, fertilizer, vitamin capsules, shampoo, clothing, toothpaste, pillows, DVDs, and eyeglasses just to name a few is hydrogen and carbon ie. hydrocarbons.
Clearly the use of oil which is not made by the fossil bones of dinosaurs but by microscopic bacteria which is a renewable resource although you will be waiting a long time for new oil to be formed.
There is another way to obtain these hydrocarbons, you can remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and you can remove hydrogen from water.
While certain institutions are calling for reductions in CO2 emissions, they are doing very little to develop technologies to replace energy production devices that are producing the CO2. Instead, they attempt to reduce outputs by taking money from industry to allow them to maintain the output.
They are not willing to pay for the removal of CO2 any more than they are willing to pay Brazil for the oxygen their trees produce that they consume.
For anyone to pay for a product it has to have value to them. Currently, a few companies are attempting to manufacture replacement fuels such as diesel, gasoline and jet fuel by extracting atmospheric CO2 and splitting water then adding the require remaining chemicals to produce these fuels, which they then transport and sell.
I propose using a thermal solar powered Cyclone Microgrid system to power the extraction plant and water spitting hydroxy system. This will allow new jobs to be created while removing CO2, being paid for by the sale liquid fuels.
These fuels when burn release the CO2 back into the atmosphere, but at no increase to the current level, and when used as a replacement for "fossil" oil is an actual reduction.
While the Cyclone Microgrid could be used to remove CO2 which might then be stored in the ground, no one at this time is willing to pay from it, even though governments are extorting carbon taxes.
There is a great deal of waste in our societies. Plastic, tires, wood, manure, clothing, a great many of the things thrown away ending up in the oceans or landfills could be burned in a Cyclone Engine producing electricity very cleanly compared to currently used technologies.
Thermal Storage –Fuels – Solar Storage – Wind - Hydro
Wind, Hydro, and Solar are very environmentally friendly; however, they are unpredictable as most of the power generated is wasted because more power can be generated than used in the grid at one moment of time. Then when power is needed there is none or there is a small amount in very expensive non-environmentally friendly electric batteries. Cyclone Power Technologies can change this. Cyclone Power Technologies has developed a technology to smooth out power surges and store energy for weeks at a time. These are unique priority systems of Cyclone. Cyclone Thermal Storage Unit (TSU) is a specially designed container to store large amounts of thermal energy up to 760C for weeks at a time. It is a special high-temperature Cyclone heat medium (can go above 1400⁰F). The Cyclone heat medium is not Thermoil or Molten Salt that has a low power density at very high costs; it is exclusive to Cyclone Technologies development. The Cyclone Heat Medium does not need heat tracing or outside sources to keep it from solidifying.
How it works, wind generators having the capability to produce up to 2 megawatts of power but variable with no or little wind, the same for solar, no sun or fewer hours, and the same with Hydro, it is only producing part of the time and not always when you need it. Please refer to the California Duck Chart for confirmation. Using the Cyclone system we can use wind generators and solar systems to directly convert heat to where it is stored in the Cyclone TSU. The heat from the TSU drives the Cyclone 1 Mega Watt engine generator for seamless electrical power 24/7. The Cyclone engine generator is a base Rankine cycle engine, however, not a turbine, it is highly efficient at all loads, low maintenance, water lubricated, free piston engine with only seven moving parts in the base.
This is steady electrical power coming from a constant steady state heat source “The Cyclone Thermal Storage Unit”. No surges and best of all it can be a plugin system at a low cost to make these unsteady systems work and work reliably on a 24/7 basis. The Cyclone System can also operate on any solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel at a very clean burn. The combustion chamber does not reach NOX temperatures, therefore, meeting the new environmental requirement. The heat source can also be from a fluidized bed or many other systems that burn various bio-mass and trash environmentally friendly. No need to produce a fuel from the bio-mass, it can just be burned and store the heat. This inexpensive system can be attached to existing solar, wind, and hydro systems as needed to make an unreliable system a profitable steady 24/7 project. The TSU is not venerable to Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) therefore; power can still be supplied when a grid system is down.
Cyclone has also a cost effective thermal solar troughs using the Cyclone Thermal Storage Medium that can be plugged into existing wind and hydro systems to enhance the outputs. These are inexpensive and durable enough to withstand hurricanes proprietary to Cyclone Power.
The possibility to have electric power 24/7 from renewable, solar, and wind opens up new doors for isolated Islands around the world and remote locations in every Country. Mini grids using the Cyclone system of power generation, storage, and electrical output could have saved some of these island nations from some of the disasters that occurred. Cyclone has the only long term low cost energy storage system to accomplish this. The system is very simple and can have a minimum of maintenance, low cost, and long life. Farms in the USA and other countries could use the Cyclone system and run on the biomass created at the farms; this could also help to reduce food costs. The TSU’s heat can also be used as needed for cooking, home heat, or various other needs in processes. Other processes waste/exhaust heat such as heaters used in Bitumen can now be stored in the TSU and used for electricity or where needed.
At present Cyclone is presenting: (a) 10 Kw containerized portable with TSU, engine/generator, and biomass furnace and Solar Trough. (b) 30 Kw containerized portable with TSU, engine/generator. (c) 30 to 100 Kw Solar Trough with TSU, engine/generator for Commercial buildings. (d) 1 Mw Solar Trough with TSU, engine/generator for Industrial buildings, malls, and off grid communities with incinerator back up. (e) 10 and 15 Kw portable generators for all liquid and vapor fuels (one unit does all)

ALYI Points To Tesla Flaws And Alternatively Introduces Electric Vehicle Innovation Consolidation Strategy
New York, NY -- March 27, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- www.nextbigticker.com -- In a bold move, Alternet Systems, Inc. (USOTC: ALYI) took a shot at Tesla’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) overall electric vehicle strategy. ALYI made some compelling arguments that the key technologies behind the inevitable future of eclectic vehicles just haven’t been invented yet.
“The technology that powers future EV’s is likely not yet invented or discovered. Lithium batteries are the predominant energy storage solution today, but the scarcity of lithium and the volatility of lithium batteries make it an unlikely long-term solution. The lithium energy storage dominance is likely to pass and a large infrastructure investment in a lithium energy storage solution today could turn into a boat anchor tomorrow. In fact, battery technology in general is likely to be surpassed by the evolution of supercapacitors making battery investment today a high-risk prospect. Going even one step further, EV design so far has simply mirrored combustion engine vehicle design only replacing the combustion engine with an electric motor. What likely makes more sense, is a smaller electric motor for every wheel synchronized by software.”
ALYI pointed out in a not too subtle manner that Tesla has probably built too big, too fast based on technology that is not sustainable.
“How does one build a mass EV production capability today using the technology available today and maintain the flexibility to deliver the EV product tomorrow using the technology yet to be discovered? The short answer is probably that a mass production capacity is premature and likely to not be sustainable. Not naming any names here, but I think you can guess at an endeavor that meets the definition of a premature mass production attempt that will likely not sustain in the long-term.”
ALYI is apparently now on the hunt for all the orphaned EV related technology innovations that might prove to be the future of the EV market. ALYI plans to start rolling them up in an M&A campaign. ALYI just might be on to something here.
The New Cyclone Green Engine is a next-generation engine alternative.
For over 1oo years the Otto Four Cycle Internal Combustion engine has served mankind. renewable energy solar power
In more recent years concern regarding pollution, carbon dioxide, and fuel cost has generated a search for alternative energy.
Electric cars and hydrogen fuel cell/electric cars will become increasingly utilized.
The family of Cyclone engines are a more inclusive option.
Able to operate on any kind of fuel including sources not often thought of as fuel.
Here is a partial list.
Diesel, gasoline/petrol, propane/LPG, natural gas, hydrogen, hydroxy/Browns gas/HHO, landfill methane, ammonia, syngases such as from pyrolysis plastics and tires, wood, waste oils, manure, pretty much anything that will burn.
Sweden leads the way in turning waste to fuel, the rest of the world needs to follow their example.
Three tons of waste plastic contains one ton of fuel.
When burning fuel, due to the 30-35% efficiency of these engines, there is less carbon dioxide (CO2) emission, very few pollutants, due to the complete fuel burn, and no nitrogen oxide (NOx) due to the low temperature burn.
It is also able to run off of heat sources, such as emitted by the sun, or found underground namely geothermal.
Additional waste heat such as from big engines like trucks, trains, ships or stationary engines, or turbine engines, or furnaces, ovens, flares, and smokestacks will power a Cyclone engine.
These types of sources are either pollution free or add no additional pollution.
Projects by the US Clean Heat And Power Association are a reduction of 35 Million Ton of CO2 and 400 Thousand Tons of NOx annually.
The recovered engine is estimated at $5 Billion per year.
One of the first engine applications will be a One-Megawatt Electric Generator System AKA a Microgrid.
It will use Parabolic Trough technology to capture heat from the atmosphere generated by the sun.
This is a different means of capturing energy from the sun. Photovoltaic or Solar Panels turn sun emitted photons into electric through a chemical reaction. That electric, in turn, can be used to power conventional electric motors. There will be some energy loss in the transfer. There is less energy loss using Cyclone engines.
In addition, the Cyclone Microgrid will store energy for several days as heat rather than electricity in lithium-Ion chemical batteries.
This is safer and less expensive.
These engines will be available in a variety of sizes from lawn mower comparable to locomotive train power.
How do the work?
Think of them as a contained perfected steam engine.
Yes, steam engines are not extinct. Steam turbines are still in use at nuclear power stations on navy vessels.
The Cyclone engine uses cylinders and pistons.
They are more efficient at low RPM than a turbine engine.
The water is contained within the engine, so is not lost, and there is no boiler to burst, making the engines safe.
They spin quietly and smoothly.
The engines can be used in any application that an engine is now serving.
Automobiles, trains, boats, pumps, generators, mining equipment, underwater, or even on the Moon.
The New Cyclone Engine is about to become part of the future.
It will change the world for the better.
