Re: How can I calculate engine dimentions for example, cylinder volume, diameter and the overall size of the engine>

It seems to be very useful. Thank you so much! Do you know what is the biggest Stirling engine been ever made? When I design the engine, I am confused about the speed. How can we determine the maximum speed of the engine?

Re: cylinder ratios

If you have this book, please share. I highly appreciate. I really need to build my first machine. Thank you so much.

Estimate engine size from heated power

Dear all,

I have a question. How to calculate the displacement volume for anpha type, if we know the heated power is 500KW, and differenttial temperature is 500oC? Please help.

Thank you so much!

How can I roughly calculate engine dimensions, for example, cylinder volume, diameter and the overall size of the engine? Based on differential temperature is 500oC, heat source is 500 kWt.

Thank you!

Re: Is it possible to build 1MWt Stirling engine?

Thank you so much!

I am looking for a procedure to estimate the size of the engine. How can I calculate engine dimentions for example, cylinder volume, diameter and the overall size of the engine>? What do you recommend?

Is it possible to build 1MWt Stirling engine?

Hi everyone,
Is it possible to build 1MWt Stirling engine for electricity generation? For this case Stirling vs turbine, which one you think more efficient in terms of efficiency and size?
