Numerical Simulation of a Looped Tube 4-Stage Traveling-Wave Thermoacoustic Engine

Background and Objectives: The technology of thermoacoustic energy conversion is one of the most promising technologies for converting thermal energy into electrical one. A brief review of the achievements in development of the multi-stage traveling-wave engines was made. The numerical simulation of a 4-stage engine with a load was done. The aim of research was to determine the engine parameters, required to achieve the maximum of efficiency of the system and the acoustic power on the load.
