|Title:||Development of Innovative Micro Power Converter Technologies at the Austrian Institute of Technology||Authors:||Keding, Marcus
|Issue Date:||Aug-2009||Publisher:||American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics||Source:||7th International Energy Conversion Engineering Conference||Abstract:||Waste heat is a primary source of energy loss in many aerospace and terrestrial applications. The Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) is presently developing two different types of micro power converters, promising high efficiencies in their respective application areas. The first converter is based on an innovative thermoacoustic Stirling engine concept without moving parts. Such a maintenance-free engine system would be particularly suitable for advanced Stirling radioisotope space power systems. The second converter is based on microturbines to use exhaust-gases for improving the overall efficiency for a number of applications. This paper will summarize our efforts on micro power converter technologies.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11790/238||DOI:||10.2514/6.2009-4522
