Abstract

Development of a Stirling engine that will be able to drive a compact 30-kW generator is described. Tests carried out on a second prototype engine in 1984 showed a maximum output of 24 kW and a maximum efficiency of 30%. The authors describe the second prototype engine and report its test results. Current research on engine components and the simulation codes being developed are also described.
