Electromagnetic Piston Engine
The present invention relates to an electromagnetic piston engine capable of producing driving power by a reciprocal movement of a piston in a cylinder by electromagnetic force. The present invention has the objects to provide the electromagnetic piston engine which can do without a variety of resistance inherent in internal combustion piston engines, which reduces the weight corresponding to a rotary assembly portion to a smaller value even if a great output is produced, which can be readily employed together with power transmission mechanisms and so on for use with conventional internal combustion piston engines, and which has a high efficiency in energy consumption. The electromagnetic piston engine is provided with the cylinder and the piston made each of a magnetic material as well as with as the cylinder electromagnet having the inner wall of the cylinder magnetizable to a one magnetic pole and with the piston magnetization unit for magnetizing a portion of the piston engageable with the cylinder to a single magnetic pole in a fixed manner. The magnetization of the cylinder electromagnet generates magnetically attracting force between the cylinder and the piston to cause the piston to move in a one direction and thereafter magnetically repellent force to transfer the piston in the opposite direction. This series of the actions are repeated to provide a continual reciprocal movement of the piston.
