Free-Piston Stirling Engine demonstrator test plan

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Mechanical Technology Incorporated is developing a 1 KWe Free-Piston Stirling ENgine (FPSE) Power System. The plan for testing the demonstrator power system is presented. The test hardware is a Free-Piston Stirling Engine prime mover driving a linear alternator. The demonstrator system is basically a modular assembly. The modules are the reciprocating alternator section, engine section, heater head insulation package assembly, and the pressure vessel. The test objective is to demonstrate a system with greater than 30% overall efficiency at 1 KW, 45 hz operating conditions, and to identify and isolate engine losses to provide a basis for future engine improvements.
