A theorectical model regarding the thermodynamic characteristics of the working medium in the Stirling engine has been developed to predict the cyclic variations in pressure and fluid velocity during operation. The β-type and the free-piston type Stirling engines are of the same kind with coaxial piston-displacer structure; therefore, the design of β-type Stirling engines can be partially further applied to the design of the free-piston in the future. The present study uses the rhombic-drive mechanism which is particularly valid to a small-scale, high pressure system. Three versions of the engine prototypes have been completed, and their relative performances have been tested. In accordance with theoretical model developed as well as the performance test data for the prototypes, improvement in the design phase for the Stirling engines is attempted.
