Note that in the foregoing, where we have used regenerator effectiveness rather than efficiency, in case (d) the maximum quantity of heat which can lie rejected to the regenerator is rv(T4 7\) whilst the quantity picked tip by the gas is rp(Ta•• T2). Thus the maximum value which the regenerator effectiveness can have is obtained by equating these two terms.

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.
