Introducing the Stirling engine

The key feature of the Stirling engine is that it operates on a closed cycle, meaning that the working fluid is contained within the engine and continuously circulates through the compression, heating, expansion, and cooling phases without being consumed. This makes the Stirling engine highly efficient and environmentally friendly, as it can operate with low emissions and minimal fuel consumption. Additionally, its external heat source allows for versatility in fuel options and applications, making it suitable for various power generation and mechanical tasks.


Exploring Key Components and Mechanisms

The Stirling engine comprises essential components: an external heat source, a heat receiver, working gas, regenerators, and mechanisms for converting thermal energy into mechanical work.
The external heat source, often an external flame, heats the working gas through the heat receiver. This causes the gas to expand, driving a piston and generating mechanical work.
Critical to the engine's efficiency is the regenerator, strategically positioned between hot and cold sections. It captures and stores heat during expansion, releasing it during compression, thus enhancing overall performance.

High Versatility of Thermal Heat Inputs

Electricity conversion heat can come from a combustion system integrated with the Stirling engine or industrial process waste energy like hot flue gases, which would otherwise be wasted.
Stirlingversal's engine modules are capable of handling non-clean fuel gases at temperatures exceeding 700°C. They adapt to varying fuel heating values and operate flexibly with changing gas compositions (CH4, CO, H2, etc.).
Compared to internal combustion engines, the Stirling engine is less prone to residual fuel gas particles and dust, enabling optimized heat receivers for versatile applications.
