Abstract: An air charged V-type Stirling engine, having 260 cm$^3$ swept volume, was manufactured and tested. Speed-torque characteristics of the engine were obtained for different temperature and charge pressure values in the range of 600^oC to 1100^oC and 1 to 4 bars. The experiments intended to determine the performance characteristics of the engine at different set up values of pressure and hot source temperature. Maximum output power was obtained at 1100^oC and 2.5 bars charge pressure as 65 W. The results are presented in diagrams.
Keywords: Stirling engine, external heating, engine performance, experimental study.
