Cylinder Arrangements

Elsewhere Zacharias (1973) discussed a variety of arrangements for the MAN/MWM engine, some of which are reproduced herein. Fig 14.6 shows a cross-section and plan for a four-cylinder double-acting in-line engine. It will be noted that this machine was designed with three combustors and had a common c.\haust-gas/inlet-air preheater. l ig. 14.7 shows the cylinder connection arrangements for four- and six-cylinder double-acting in-line engines.

Fig. 14.8 shows a cross-section of a double-acting Vec-6 engine. The cylinder connections for this machine are shown in Fig. 14.9. A schematic arrangement of this engine is shown in Fig. 14.10.

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.
