Abstract:

THE INTENT OF THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A LIQUID STIRLING CYCLE, ALSO KNOWN AS A MALONE CYCLE, AS A NON-VAPOR COMPRESSION AC PLANT FOR POTENTIAL SHIPBOARD USE. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL CONCENTRATE ON THEORETICAL MODELING OF, AND DETERMINATION OF ALTERNATIVE WORKING FLUIDS FOR, THE MALONE HEAT PUMP IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM DESIGN PARAMETERS FOR SUCH A CYCLE. ALSO, CRITICAL PARAMETERS OF THE CYCLE INCLUDING SIZE, WEIGHT, EFFICIENCY, RELIABILITY, AND SAFETY SHALL BE ADDRESSED. RESULTS OF THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL REVEAL IF IT IS PRACTICAL TO USE THE MALONE CYCLE AS A HEAT PUMP FOR SHIPBOARD USE, AND IF PRACTICAL, WILL DESCRIBE THE FLUID OR FLUIDS OF CHOICE FOR USE IN SUCH A CYCLE.
