AbstractIn Phase Sunpower looked at Thermoacoustic Stirling Heat Engines (TASHEs). These ranged from a TASHE which was sized for the heat from a single General Purpose Heat Source (GPHS), to a larger unit sized for a Venus mission. We also looked at different types of cooler to produce both electrical power and sensor cooling for the Venus application. Computer projected performance and layout drawing were created for all the machines investigated. In Phase II we plan to fabricate, test, and develop the single-GPHS sized coaxial. TASHE designed in Phase I.
