A free-piston Stirling engine-pump (FPSEP) combines a Stirling cycle that provides power to an integral hydraulic pump. Stirling cycle engines offer potential advantages over internal combustion engines in fuel choice, quietness, and emissions. A Stirling-cycle, free-piston engine-pump has been investigated for use in human-scale, fractional horsepower applications and information.The Matlab code was used for the dynamics computations of the displacer and power piston movement. The ANSYS code was used to simulate the temperature profile of the working gas in the free-piston Stirling engine. The algorithm of theanbsp;...
