The CTURA SE-1 Stirling engine project was motivated out of the power challenges in certain part of the world. And Also, the need for clean, renewable energy sources. The objective is to produce power of 1.5KW for water pump. The project has been the hallmark of CTURA Solutions thus far. And the design and development process has being very fascinating, with lots of learning along the process.
The preliminary design process involved lots of simulations and computations to obtain the required parameters. The prototyping was such that CTURA team was at the forefront of every activity. The project was the source of the heating chamber/kiln project.
