Power output of a stirling engine (Beale Number)

Power output of a stirling engine (Beale Number) :

where:

{\displaystyle B_{n}={\frac {Wo}{PVF}}}

  • Bn is the Beale number
  • Wo is the power output of the engine (watts)
  • P is the mean average gas pressure (Pa) or  (  MPa, if volume is in cm3)
  • V is swept volume of the power piston (m3, or cm3, if pressure is in MPa)
  • F is the engine cycle frequency (Hz)
