I am writing a technical report describing how a machine system works. We call the system BLK-Engine, where BLK is the acronym of a long term. When we describe how it works, should I say: "BLK-Engine moves the piston from left to right" or "the BLK-Engine moves the piston from left to right"?
There are also some descriptions like "When a signal arrives, a BLK-Engine moves". Can I say "When a signal arrives, BLK-Engine moves"?
Update: I think my question can be expressed more precisely as: can we name something as we name a person and use a zero article for it? For example, if I name the engine we developed "BLK-Engine", can we just call it by name instead of adding a "the".
