Use of a Stirling-cycle convertor is analyzed with respect to domestic application to micro Combined Heat and Power. An engine that can convert heat into electric power has the potential to extract more availability from fuel consumption than combustion for space heating alone. A specific conceptual design is presented, illustrating that the technical aspects are manageable. A dynamic analysis shows that such a system could be integrated with line power without expensive tie-in electronics. A cost analysis indicates an installed-system target price for practical consumer adoption.
