Abstract

A successful realization of Stirling engines is conditioned by its correct conceptual design and optimal constructional and technological mode of all parts. Initial information should provide computation of real cycles of the engines. The information form base engine dimensions like piston bore or piston stroke. After that more sophisticated methods can be used for the development. The paper presents calculation models and results of dynamics and thermodynamic cycles of the external heat supply engines. High-level FE (Finite Element), MBS (Multi Body System) or CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) models arising from the description of real processes which run in an external heat supply engine are used for virtual prototype of 3 kW Stirling engine with Rhombic mechanism.
