Size and weight of large Stirling engines

Postby veropiou » Fri Jun 06, 2003 9:29 am

How big would a 75-100 kW Stirling engine be, and about how much
would it weight? What kind of cooling surface would it require?

There aren't any absolute answers to this. It depends on the design. When I did an interview with Kockums for Around the World by Stirling Engine, they said that when you took off all the submarine specific parts of their 100 kW Stirling that the engine itself was about the same size and weight as a comparable diesel.
