Would the process of condensing take more energy than the original expansion cycle produced or could this cycle perpetuate on a diminishing output until it would have to be recharged/refrozen ?
If it could be proven to work would the refreezing/recharging process consume more energy than the device would generate before a refreeze ?
You need explosive mixture if you want power from your engine, you need explosion not only an simple expansion of gas. Regards
