Philips Stirling Engine Activities 650004

Intensive investigation of the theory of the Stirling engine system and of problems such as crank systems and gas sealing have made possible the prediction of properties of a given design within a few percent. This paper describes a test system in which properties of engines with high power per cylinder can be measured elegantly and cheaply. The large number of parameters determined over a large range now permit optimization programs to be run on a computer. Construction details are given and reversibility of the system is demonstrated.
