Based on work performed at NASA we have enhanced our stirling engine and designed an acoustic 200kWe prototype: The AS (Acoustic Stirling) Engine.
Power output up to 250 kW
Inlet pressure up to 40 bar(a)/580 psi
Inlet temperature molten salt up to 650 °C
MS Outlet Temperature >150oC
Water inlet for cooling
Length 1.5 m
Width 1.5 m
Height 2 m
A: Displacer Piston in position zero; Power Piston in position zero.
B: Displacer move down and press air on Power Piston moving it down
C: Hot air moved away from Displacer Top, Cold Air are pressed up
Efficient conversion of energy
