Stirling engine systems for small and micro combined heat and power (CHP) applications

J. Harrison and E. On,     Engineering, UK

Abstract:

Stirling engines have for many years been considered as the most promising technology for micro-CHP applications. As external combustion engines permitting close control of the combustion process, their characteristics of low emissions, high efficiency, reliability, extended service intervals, low noise and vibration levels are all well suited to the demands of micro-CHP in individual homes. This chapter describes the fundamentals of the Stirling cycle and explains how the technology meets the needs of, primarily, existing homes with reference to leading Stirling engine products either commercially ...
