Closed free piston/displacer Stirling idea

Postby vminnen » Sat Apr 14, 2007 3:28 pm

Just uploaded a href="">sketched
with which I tried to confront some of the problematic
aspects I spotted as common to many (model) stirlings:
  • friction
  • air leakage
  • not self-starting
  • complicated mechanisms to ensure displacer movement timing
  • Apparently, free piston/displacer engines are the name of the
    game in commercial solar / micro-CHP applications. But I have not come
    across any model engines operating on FPD principles yet.

    Is this
    idea is any good? Else I hope it might inspire someone for something
