Costs And Applications

No specific data on the costs of United Stirling engines have been published. Comparative estimates for total operating costs have been given by Rosenqvist ef al. (1977), and by Carlqvist et al. (1977) for 150 kW (204 hp) Stirling and diescl engines for the typical 13 000 kg (28 665 lbm) city-suburban delivery truck shown in Fig. 15.19. Initial cost for the Stirling engine was assumed to be 50 per cent higher than the diesel engine. The radiator eost was assumed to be twice that for the cost of the diesel engine radiator. A variety of other assumptions, some credible, some questionable, were made with Ihe result that the Stirling engine

Solar Stirling Engine Basics Explained

The solar Stirling engine is progressively becoming a viable alternative to solar panels for its higher efficiency. Stirling engines might be the best way to harvest the power provided by the sun. This is an easy-to-understand explanation of how Stirling engines work, the different types, and why they are more efficient than steam engines.
