Analysis of the 3rd Generation IC-Stirling Engine 2005-01-3462

The Stirling cycle can be approximated in an internal combustion engine by means of regeneration of internal heat. This article shows computational results from a zero-dimensional thermodynamic analysis where a variety of parameters are studied. Results show that the IC-Stirling cycle offers a significantly better thermal efficiency over a conventional IC engine if some effects, such as the tendency for the cylinder air to “hide” inside the regenerator, are solved.
