Abstract

A gamma type Stirling cycle engine was purchased with the intent of discovering means to test the device for a power output under various conditions. In the previous quarter the test apparatus A failed due to a shortage of power necessary for the configuration to measure. Test apparatus B will require less power to produce reasonable data. After a configuration is confirmed the outlined testing procedures will be performed in order to better understand the thermodynamic characteristics of the engine. The following report will outline the successes and failures of the configuration design as well as corresponding results from tests performed at various temperature differentials. Also the measured power data will be compared to the ideal thermodynamic effects of the engine as well as the overall efficiency. In addition the report will also include the design criteria necessary to build a gamma-type engine.
