Stirling Convertor Extended Operation Testing and Data Analysis at GRC
7th International Energy Conversion Engineering Conference
This paper focuses on extended operation testing and data analysis of free-piston Stirling convertors at the NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC). Extended operation testing is essential to the development of radioisotope power systems and their potential use for long duration missions. To document the reliability of the convertors, regular monitoring and analysis of the extended operation data is particularly valuable; allowing us to better understand and quantitY the long life characteristics ofdoi:10.2514/6.2009-4555 fatcat:2izlfsejafd2vb4wkge23vvscy
