The Project

The goal of Stirling six is to design a controller system for the Stirling engine designed by our sponsor EcoGen. The controller will monitor the free displacer piston inside of the engine and keep it moving at 60Hz. A coil will keep the displacer piston moving, and will be controlled by our control system. Data will be taken from the array of Hall effect sensors that are monitoring the displacer piston and the system will be changed accordingly. The system should keep the displacer piston oscilating at 60Hz with a stroke of 4cm.
