Gaseous Working Fluids

TheoreticaI comparisons The first numerical comparison of different working fluids was given by Meijer (1970a) with the presentation of the characteristics reproduced in Fig. 8.1. I bis figure was a summary of extensive computer optimization studies carried out by Philips using their Stirling engine simulation computer program. All the results referred to large engines of 165 kW (225 brake hp) per cylinder having a heater temperature of 700 °C (1295CF). cooler temperature of 25 °C (77 °F) and maximum gas pressure of 1 lOMN/nr (15 954 lbs per sq in). The overall efficiency of the

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.
