ANALYSIS OF ISOTHERMAL THERMODYNAMIC PROCESSES IN THE STIRLING ENGINE
Adrian Chmielewski , Robert Gumiński , Jędrzej Mączak
AbstractThis work presents a thermodynamic analysis for thermodynamic processes taking place in the Stirling engine working space. The working space was divided into operational sections, which corresponded to the analysed control volume units, including: the compression space, cooler, regenerator, heater, and the expansion space. On the basis of the conducted thermodynamic analysis, useful relations were derived, which will be used in the future to build the advanced, combined model in which energy and heat losses are taken into consideration, as well as the Stirling engine dynamics during the work cycle. Among the most important thermodynamic processes presented in this work, are: heat exchange at the heat exchangers (the cooler, regenerator, heater), and the isothermal heat exchange in the compression and expansion spaces.
