Numerical model for Stirling cycle machines including a differential simulation of the appendix gap

• The essentials of a 1-dimensional regenerative cycle simulation code are revealed. • An extension by a differential model of the appendix gap is introduced. • Simulated appendix gap losses are very sensitive to the heat transfer assumptions. • The new model includes interactions between the losses...
