Au`to*mixte" system (?). (Mach.)
(devised by Henri Pieper, a Belgian) of driving automobiles employing
a gasoline engine and an auxiliary reversible dynamo. When there is an
excess of power the dynamo is driven by the engine so as to charge a
small storage battery; when there is a deficiency of power the dynamo
reverses and acts as an auxiliary motor. Sometimes called Pieper
system. -- Automixte car, etc.
