    Abstract

    Low temperature differential (LTD) Stirling engines (SE) are useful devices when attempting to obtain useful work from low temperature heat sources. In an attempt to implement a renewable small scale LTD SE on a fishing boat, the required energy sources must operate on green energy. This research focuses on the feasibility of a LTD Stirling engine as one of the primary energy sources for a sustainable marine transport. The main focus is on the design and construction of a low temperature differential Stirling engine whose primary source of heating is directed from the sun and cooled through natural convection. This paper reports findings from the LTD SE design analysis.
