FIELD: power engineering; power plants.
SUBSTANCE: invention can be used in engines. Proposed method of producing and converting energy of working medium into mechanical work comes to conversion of energy of expansion of two-component working medium into useful work. According to proposed method, gaseous component is preliminarily compressed separately from liquid component, and then liquid component is injected into compressed gaseous component. Liquid component is preliminarily heated to temperature equal to or higher than temperature of compressed gaseous component. Thus formed two-components medium is expanded with provision of mechanical energy. Liquid component is injected into mixing chamber. Gaseous and liquid components are uniformly mixed in chamber and then, through two-component medium, thus formed, electric discharge is passed of power providing vaporization of liquid components of medium and destruction of molecules of working medium with formation of plasma, water being used as liquid component. Device for forming and converting energy of working medium into mechanical work includes compression-expansion machine made in form of piston machine. Inlet and outlet valves are installed in upper of cylinder of piston machine to pass working medium and nozzle to feed liquid component. Device contains self-contained heat source, system of heating and delivering of liquid component, system of processing and delivering of gaseous component. Device if furnished with round-shaped mixing chamber into which electrodes are introduced through insulating bushings, electrodes being connected by electric circuits with power generator. Nozzle to deliver liquid component is found in upper part of mixing chamber between electrode, and mixing chamber is connected with upper end face part of cylinder by transition channel.
EFFECT: provision of conversion of energy working medium into mechanical work.
