Paul Breeze, in Piston Engine-Based Power Plants, Abstract. The Stirling engine is an external combustion engine in which heat energy is applied to the outside of the device. These engines use pistons but the engine itself is sealed to the atmosphere.

They can be supplied with heat from a variety of different sources including combustion fuels, waste heat and from solar heat energy.

The first generation of hardware in the Large Free-Piston Stirling Engine ( kW per cylinder) program, shown above, was the Space Power Demonstrator Engine (SPDE). The SPDE was a free-piston Stirling engine coupled to a linear alternator.

It was a double cylinder, opposed-piston convertor designed to produce 25 kWe at 25% overall efficiency. The hot end of the Stirling converter reaches °C, and heated helium drives a free piston reciprocating in a linear alternator, heat being rejected at the cold end of the engine.

The AC is then converted to 55 watts DC. This Stirling engine produces about four times as much electric power from the plutonium fuel than an RTG. Thus each SRG. Most free piston Stirling engines that use a linear alter-nator are relatively low power levels, and therefore use only a single phase.

Two- and three-phase power gen-eration is possible in a linear generator, but will not be covered in this context. Moving Magnet LA’s: Most Stirling LA’s are moving permanent magnet type, since this configura.

The Stirling engine (or Stirling's air engine as it was known at the time) was invented and patented in It followed earlier attempts at making an air engine but was probably the first put to practical use when, inan engine built by Stirling was employed pumping water in a quarry.

The main subject of Stirling's original patent was a heat exchanger, which he called an "economiser. This paper includes an overview of the status of free-piston Stirling machine technology at Sunpower, Inc. Sunpower has achieved record-setting performance and specific power for a wide range of.
