Unformatted text preview: estimate, using a cycle analysis and the exhaust temperature given in Table 5.4, the cycle pressure ratio r P and the combustor exit temperature. What would be the thermal eﬃciency of the cycle, as predicted from your analysis, and how does it compare to the thermal eﬃciency value listed in Table 5.4? 4. Prepare a 1–2 page proﬁle on a company, of you choice, involved in a Stirling engine application. Your proﬁle should include information such as the size and projected growth rate, the market for the product, the technological/enginnering issues related to the product, and anything else you deem relevant. To get started, I would suggest you perform a Google search on ”Stirling engine”....
