Abstract

Stirling engine is a mechanical device working theoretically on Stirling cycle. It is external combustion engine. There are mainly three types of Stirling engine is available. Alpha, Beta and Gamma. It uses Air, Hydrogen, Helium, Nitrogen or Steam as working fluid. But this is a new designed metal body Stirling engine which is different from these three types. It is contain conical shape cold cylinder, power piston, regenerator, hot cylinder etc. It can be used as waste heat recovery engine. This is metal body Stirling engine so it is also used for practical application and also for power generation. Internal combustion engine is developed in 19th century. But it efficiency is only 35- 40%. And it is also used fossil fuels which is high in cost and limited in nature. And exhaust emission of Internal Combustion engine is also high. But the Stirling engine offer possibility for having high efficiency engine with less emission in comparison with internal combustion engine. The ideal Stirling engine cycle has the same theoretical efficiency as Carnot heat engine (for the same input and output temperatures). And it is uses renewable resources. So the cost of power production is also low. Our ultimate aim is to develop metal body Stirling engine which can be used for practical application.
