Abstract

The proposed work investigates optimal values of various decision variables that simultaneously optimize power output, net-work output and second law efficiency of solar driven Stirling heat engine with regenerative heat losses, conducting thermal bridging losses using evolutionary algorithm based on NSGA-II in Matlab simulink environment. Effects of design parameters as absorber temperature, concentrating ratio, radiative and convective heat transfers are included in the analysis. Pareto frontier is obtained for triple and dual objectives and the best optimal value is selected through four different decision making techniques viz. Fuzzy, Shannon entropy, LINMAP and TOPSIS. Triple objective evolutionary approach applied to the proposed model gives power output, net-work output and second law efficiency as (38.87 kW, 1.24 kJ, 0.3156) which are 18.19, 16.78 and 31.51% lower in comparison with reversible system. With the objective of error investigation, the average and maximum error of the obtained results are figured at last.
