Expert in Automotive and Small Engines
Expert is currently monitoring fleets of alternative-fueled vehicles. Alternative-fueled vehicles are matched with baseline vehicles, and monitored for emissions, life cycle costs, and user convenience in normal state and municipal fleet and pool service. The program is beginning its second year of a scheduled five years, and over 10 million miles have been accumulated on over 300 vehicles. He also built two successful prototype gasoline and alcohol-electric hybrid automobiles, plus a range extension genset and trailer for electric vehicles.
Expert developed the first commercial, small engine, solid-state ignition system, and spent several subsequent years developing improvements in small engine ignition magnetos.
A majority of Expert's career has been in engine research laboratory settings, evaluating advanced engine concepts and components of all types. His experience includes fuel systems, induction systems, exhaust systems, starting systems, cooling systems (including bi-phase or boiling liquid systems), materials, sound analysis, combustion chamber design, piston design, bearings and lubrication systems, mechanical and electronic governors, mufflers, coatings and paints.
Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Chicago, Illinois - Rockford, Illinois - Aurora, Illinois - Naperville, Illinois - Elgin, Illinois - Waukegan, Illinois - Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Madison, Wisconsin - Green Bay, Wisconsin - Kenosha, Wisconsin
