Sterling Engine

Stirling engine is a heat engine that operates by compression and expansion of air or other gas (the working fluid), resulting in the conversion of heat energy to mechanical work. It is named after its inventor, Robert Stirling, the engine is known for its high efficiency compared to steam engines and internal combustion engines. It works on a closed regenerative thermodynamic cycle. Stirling engines are notable for their quiet operation and ability to use various heat sources, including solar, geothermal, and waste heat, making them versatile and environmentally friendly.
