The timing mechanism and its control represents the major part of this final thesis. In line with the latest requirements, efforts to discover a new solution that could improve certain parameters of the piston engines might have been marked as the main motivation behind the thesis. The initial part describes the actual piston engine, its operation principles and gradually follows to the timing mechanism. In this way, the reader acquires the knowledge necessary for a better understanding of the following chapters. We have described and compared individual options for controlling the timing mechanisms, which could be found in today´s piston engine. The main idea of this thesis was to analyse the progressive solutions of the control timing mechanisms. Further to that we analyse some specific solutions regarding operation and design, which could be potentially implemented in the aviation industry. Concluding part of the thesis includes, besides others, a pros & cons analysis of the system. Following that we also expressed our idea of how this system could be employed in the aircraft engines. On the one hand, we introduced a positive impact of such implication, but on the other hand, we identified a space for potential improvement.
