Advanced Tactical 2 kW Stirling Power Sources for Cogeneration Applications
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The U.S. military, in transitioning to a more mobile and networked Future Force, has increasing needs for small, quiet, lightweight, reliable power systems to supply energy for a variety of mission needs in the silent watch category. Currently employed Tactical Quiet Generator (TQG) sets mounted on trailers are heavy and require large footprints. A typical 10 kW generator expends a majority (60%) of its electrical capacity providing power for environmental systems, primarily, heating and cooling. By employing a cogeneration strategy, overall system size and weight can be greatly reduced. Infinia Corporation proposes to develop a 2.5 kW free-piston Stirling Tactical Cogeneration System (STaCS) to provide combined heat and power (CHP) quietly and reliably from logistics fuel.
