Free Piston Stirling Engines - Some Model Tests and Simulations 690230

Model tests of several 0.1 hp free piston Stirling cycle engines were made. They showed good piston displacer phasing and thermal efficiency in the 10% range. An instructive isothermal computer simulation was developed which compared reasonably well with model data and allowed investigation of parameter changes. Some possible configurations, power transfer, and control methods were considered.
