Is Stirling engine powerful?
In a latest highlight of China’s efforts to domestically develop high-quality engines of different types, the country recently made a major breakthrough in making the world’s most powerful Stirling engine, a type of heat engine with applications in power generation and submarine propulsion.
Why the Stirling engine is not widely used?
Stirling engines are rarely used for generating electricity. They are basically reciprocating engines and require fairly exotic alloys in their heat exchangers. Although in theory they are fairly efficient they are expensive and bulky.
How much torque can a Stirling engine make?
The maximum torque and power are 3.99 Nm and 183 W at 4 bars charge pressure and 533 K hot-end temperature. Stirling engine is an environmental friendly heat engine which could reduce CO2 emission through combustion process.
Do Stirling engines overheat?
You can supply a large number of Stirling Engines with one solar array, so long as you evenly distribute the power between the engines. These engines will never overheat. Note: When hooked up to conductive pipes or BC machinery, they will take much more power.
