PINBOARD SUMMARY

Sustainable Energy

The Stirling engine technology lost its place in the market more than 100 years ago due to the more compact invention of the Otto and Diesel engines. Although, the Otto and Diesel engines are non-flexible fuel engines, their reduced weight to power ratio gave them an edge in countless industrial applications. However, due to the recent global warming, environmental pollution and energy crises coupled with the instability of oil prices, interest in Stirling engine technology for mitigating these issues is growing once again. This study is aimed at developing a simple numerical model for evaluating and predicting the performance of a gamma-type Stirling engine and to validate the model against current knowledge in the field.
