Three Main Types of Stirling Engines 1. The alpha stirling engine contains two power pistons in separate cylinders, with one cylinder and piston be hot and the other piston and cylinder being cold. In this engine the pistons move back and forth because of the heat exchange between the two pistons. The heat exchange occurs because of a difference in temperature. 1. The beta stirling engine there is single piston located with in a single cylinder, but it is connected to the same shaft that the displacer is on. In this engine one side of the cylinder (top or bottom) is hot and the other is cold. The piston again moves because of a
