Turbine less ducted fan jet engine

Turbine-less Ducted Fan Jet Engine

  • What is a ducted fan?

    • A fan or compressor installed inside a duct

  • Why Turbine-less?

    • No need for a turbine to drive the compressor

    • Compressor is driven by electric motor

    • Advantages:

      • Less fuel consumption

      • Less expensive

      • Not difficult to manufacture

      • Solar panel or fuel cell for electricity

      • Hydrogen from fuel cell for combustion

      • Quiet propulsion; suitable for undetected surveillance
