Application of Oxyhydrogen Energy to Underwater Vehicle Thermal Power System
The possibility of oxyhydrogen energy, which use real-time generated Hydrogen and Oxygen as its source, was analyzed. A special torpedo thermal power system, which uses oxyhydrogen energy, was put forward. The key technology to realize the system was discussed. The problems which the Open-cycle torpedo thermal power system encounters was solved by the closed-cycle technology, such as exhaust noise, flight path, the working efficiency of engine was influenced by the intensity of pressure of seawater.
