Abstract:

The design evaluation study assessed the capability of the free- piston Stirling engine FPSE to meet requirements for military mobile electric ground power. Operational requirement parameteers included physical, thermodynamic, audio, material, operational, and electrical. Test data and design calculations indicated that, with continued development, the FPSE can meet or exceed all of the military requirements for 3 kW silent tactical generators operating on military logistic fuels.
