Background

• TAHE operated below 100 Hz with an axial length of around 5 m, which presents as an obstacle for smallscale applications. • One possible option to reduce the system dimension is to increase the working frequency to several hundred hertz or even higher since the system axial length is roughly proportional to acoustic wavelength.

• Key parameters of the TAHE, such as the heating power, mean pressure, the dimensions of the stack and resonator has an influence on the acoustic power

**Schematic drawing of acoustic power output measurement

• • Volume of connecting tube: 50mm Volume of reservoirs: 10-90cm3

•

The needle valve acts as an acoustical resistance while the reservoir as a compliance impedance

Numerical results

• As seen in the figures, the curves of the pressure amplitude, acoustic power output and heating block temperature reach an extreme value while the volume flow rate increases as the resistance decreases when the resistance is in the range of 107 –109 Pa s m−3 . • The peaks are reached when the amplitudes of the resistance and the compliance impedance of the R–C load are equal. • These results are consistent with those of the TAHEs operated below 100 Hz, which indicates that the great increase of operating frequency from far below 100 Hz to 300 Hz has no significant impact on the fundamental energy conversion characteristics of the TAHE. • The effect is the impact of reservoir volume on pressure amplitudes at the outlet of the engine, i.e. P1 and at the inlet of the R–C load, i.e. P2.

• When the reservoir volume is smaller than 90 cm3 , pressure amplitude P2 is larger than pressure amplitude P1, which indicates that the connecting tube acts as an acoustic pressure amplifier tube. • Whereas, the amplification ratio defined as r = P2/P1 decreases when the reservoir volume increases. • While the reservoir volume is as large as 90 cm3 , P2 becomes smaller than P1 when the resistance drops below a certain value.

• Also the compliance should not be too large, otherwise, the inlet pressure amplitude of the loads will weaken.

**Experimental verification and discussion
**

• Figs. 8–10 give the influences of the mean pressure, stack length and resonator on the acoustic power output, respectively. • It could be seen in Fig. 8 that with the same heating power of 750 W, higher mean pressure leads to larger output acoustic power.

• As seen in the Fig. 9, an optimum stack length might be around 80 mm to obtain a largest output acoustic power given the conditions of 750W heating power.

• In Fig. 10, for the same heating block temperature, more output acoustic power is achieved by using a tapered resonator

• As stated in the calculations that when the reservoir volume smaller than 90 cm3 , the connecting tube behaves as an acoustic pressure amplifier tube, i.e., P2 is larger than P1 as shown in Fig. 11. • For 90 cm3 reservoir, P2 becomes smaller than P1 once the acoustical resistance of the needle valve drops below a certain value, which is also observed in the experiments as illustrated in Fig. 12. • Furthermore, it can be seen in Fig. 13 that the experimental acoustic power output increases with the decrease of resistance impedance, agreeing well with the calculated results, especially when the resistance impedance is getting larger.

Conclusions

• • • • The energy conversion characteristics of a 300 Hz standing wave TAHE has been studied numerically and experimentally. The calculations indicate that high frequency operation has no significant influence on the fundamental energy conversion characteristics. When the amplitudes of the acoustic resistance and compliance impedance of the R–C load equal, a highest exportable acoustic power could be achieved. However, the compliance of the R–C load would seriously affect the pressure amplitudes at the outlet of the engine and the inlet of the R–C load under high frequency operation, which has been verified in the experiments. Increasing the mean pressure and the stack length, and by using the tapered resonator could effectively improve the thermal efficiency.
