CONVERSION OF A STANDARD SINGLE CYLINDER I.C. ENGINE INTO A GAMMA CONFIGURATION AIR CHARGED STIRLING ENGINE

A Villiers Mark 10.99 cc Single Cylinder Four Stroke Engine has been converted into a gamma configuration Stirling engine. The engine has been run using air at charge pressures of up to 6.6 bar. Instrumentation has enabled cyclic variation pressure-volume plots to the obtained and various internal temperature measurements have been recorded. The test results are compared with theoretical predictions and an empirical relationship with respect to internal leakage has been obtained. A value of regenerator effectiveness is also derived. /SAE/
