This paper presents a control systems approach for the modeling and control of a kinematic wobble–yoke Stirling engine. The linear dynamics of the Stirling engine are analyzed based on the dynamical model of the system, developed by these authors. We show that the Stirling engine can be viewed as a closed–loop system, where the feedback control law is given by the pressure variations in the pistons. Since the closed–loop system exhibits unstable dynamics, we design a pre–compensator to stabilize the displacements of the engine’s pistons, and an observer to estimate their piston velocities.
