N. The program designed, built, and operated the 7.3 k\V (10hp) engine generator sets for the lirst Stirling-electric hybrid passenger cars, known as the Stir-Lec I and II. It also made the first exhaust-emission tests on a Stirling powered vehicle.

15. The program performed the first endurance tests approaching 'military standard' severity on a Stirling generator set.

16. The program made the following application and design studies:

(a) It designed complete Stirling engine submarine powerplant with I.il heat storage and submitted proposal to the U.S. Navy in 1959.

(b) It made a design study of a high-performance swash-plate drive torpedo engine of 440 kW (600 hp).

(c) It included design studies of 7.3 and 22 kW (10 and 30 hp) Stirling-LiF thermal energy storage plants for small research submarines, and 735-3680 kW 11000-5000 hp) plants for data for General Motors Stirling engines.

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.
