MYT engine to be demonstrated to Society of Automotive Engineers
Inventor Raphial Morgado has been invited as a guest speaker at the
Oregon chapter of SAE to discuss and demonstrate his Massive Yet Tiny (MYT)
engine. Also working on building 5.5-inch versions to demonstrate this 40x power-to-weight ratio
engine compared to conventional engines.
This event was canceled
Apr. 5, 2010.
Inventor, Raphial Morgado, stands between a
conventional engine and his engine that he says has comparable power output.
He will be presenting the engine in
March May 2010 to the Oregon section of

We've got several updates to report on Angel Lab's Massive
Yet Tiny (MYT) engine -- the internal combustion engine with multiple
firings in one cycle, producing enormous torque in a small area. With 40 times higher power-to-weight ratio, low parts count, low maintenance, high mechanical efficiency, and low pollution, the MYT Engine
stands to benefit every engine application.
Guest Speaker at Oregon SAE
The inventor, Raphial Morgado, has been invited by the Oregon
Section of the Society of Automotive Engineers
(SAE) to be the guest speaker at their annual event in Portland on
20 May 15,
2010 from 12-2 pm. Raphial has been enthusiastic about this opportunity to
present and defend his revolutionary technology before a group of engineers who
know automobile engines.
Rebecca Bauman, an SAE Oregon event organizer, said that the group meets
monthly, but that each year they have a special presentation to showcase a
technology of national significance. Her boyfriend brought MYT to her
attention, and she presented it to the SAE Oregon board
and they approved it. "The country needs this right now," she
said. They will be announcing and promoting the event to engineers such as
from IEEE in Oregon beginning next year. The event will probably be held
at a Freightliner conference room in Portland, which seats up to 300 people --
far more than the 40-50 the annual event usually garners. They are
expecting a higher level of interest and participation in this event, which is
open to the public, with expected admittance fee in the region of $15-$20 to
cover expenses and a small snack that will be served.
Raphial has asked us at PES Network to provide live web coverage for that event,
encouraging us to charge a small fee, which will go toward helping PES, as a
token of his appreciation for the encouragement and contacts we've directed his
way. The Massive Yet Tiny Engine is listed in the Top
100 Clean Energy Technologies by PES' sister organization, the New
Energy Congress. If you wish to attend this event via the web,
including the ability to lodge questions, you may
The Oregon SAE group said they would be happy to just see the present 14-inch diameter prototype
that runs on
compressed air -- something that Raphial showed at the SEMA show in 2005 and the LA
Auto show in 2006, then at our Breakthrough Technologies lecture last
Spring. The first version of the engine ran on diesel, but was later
converted to run on air to enable it to be demonstrated indoors.
More Engines Under Construction
Angel Labs is working on building up to eight 5.5" diameter engines which
would run on diesel or biodiesel. While they may not be ready in time for
March May event in possibly a second event later in the day, these could be installed in a variety of applications, from a small
vehicle such as a Ford Fiesta, or an ultralight aircraft, or possibly even an unmanned aerial
vehicle (UAV). Raphial is hoping that a defense contractor for the
military will let him retrofit one of their UAVs to demonstrate the
technology. The present engine in one of the UAVs weighs 145 pounds and has a
55-cubic-inch displacement. The 5.5-inch MYT engine would have a
displacement of 65 cubic inches, but only weigh nine pounds, while putting out
They would also have a dynamometer on a trailer to be able to show one of the
engines in that test mode.
After completing the 5.5" engines, the company plans on building some
8" diameter engines that Morgado says could put out as much as 400 horsepower, while weighing only 37
pounds, yet being able to replace V-6 and V-8 engines.
Raphial also said that they are in process of updating their website. He
realized that the dynamometer data document they had posted before was too small
to be legible, so they will be rescanning that and uploading it.
He is also remiss about not mentioning that the engineer they had working for
them for two years, and who ran the dynamometer tests, is Joe Bunetto, who worked for McLaren Performance
Technologies, perhaps the most qualified testing organizations in the world,
"specializ[ing] in the design, development, integration, and validation of powertrain systems." He later went on to become the Dynamometer Laboratory Manager responsible for both personnel and the operation, set up and calibration of McLarens sixteen dynamometer test cells. He assisted in bringing the facility up to ISO 9000 qualification standards.
At Angel Labs, Bunetto's duties included setup and calibration of the dynamometer test lab, engine build and development of the Angel Labs experimental 'MYT' engine. The prototype engine was approx. 14" x 14" with an 850 cubit-inch displacement. It generated 814 foot-pounds of torque at 800 RPM (124 HP).
FYI, Previous Presentation
Here is a series of videos I shot last Spring when Raphial demonstrated his
compressed-air-powered, 14-inch engine at a Breakthrough Power presentation we gave at San Jose State
