In this study, aims to determine the experimental power output of a gamma-configuration Stirling engine, with a displacement of 38.16 cm3 in operating mode corresponding to partial loads, respectively, to total loads. The braking element is the DC electric generator and partial loads are three electrical resistances respectively short-circuit operation of the electric engine. For electric engine operation in full load regime it is supplied with electricity through a variable voltage sources. Are drawn diagrams variance hot source, cold source and vary the speed and power in total and partial loads.

Key words: Stirling engine, type Gamma, temperature hot source, cold source temperature, speed, power, DC engine
