Richard M. Donnelly is an employee of CPST and also a chairman for Oshkosh Trucks.
OSK makes military vehicles and got a new hybrid design for an electric powered vehicle. It presently uses a deisel engine but can be adapted to use a turbine. The deisel can be easily swapped for a Capstone turbine. Then it can use multiple types of fuels other than just deisel.
The military hybrid design is called Pro Pulse
wellex: I realize your not that bright so I will try and keep simple.
What was said is you can slow down the turbine to diesel speeds. It can't happen.
THe ICR has never been developed. So that was wrong as well.
Maybe you should invest in something you understand.
How are you this evening?
Don't be doing magic tricks. There was this Magician in Las Vegas whose lion tried to eat him. True story!
Never a good place to be.
Besides we'd miss our adorable Stevie...resident short.
And when the Military orders start coming , and the Truck orders, cpst should be higher.
Catapillar has no engine for it's trucks for 2010. CPST and Cat should be talking now and announcing something pretty soon.
The poster was either trying to say slow the turbine speed down to diesel speeds. (A microturbine will not even start at diesel speeds)
Or, gear reduction.
Guess what, bonehead, Cap already has a gen that runs with the turbine at full speed....Duh
You and others should learn about the products....
I see the deisel being replaced with a turbine. It is a simple exchange because there are no gear changes etc. You only have to slow the output shaft down to the diesel speed or use a different electic motor.
