The unit is for demonstration of stirling cycle hot air engine principles.
The engine consists of two vertical stainless steel cylinders. The first cylinder is to generate hot air using a heater. Power to the heater can be varied. The second cylinder is to generate a mechanical power using hot air from the first cylinder. Both cylinders are attached to a common shaft, with a suitable flywheel. Instruments are provided for measurement of input power, and output power.
The advantage of this design is the ability to bring the engine to operating condition in a short time.
- Torque vs speed for a given input power.
- Output and efficiency vs speed for a given input power.
