Stirling engine, using a composite working fluid, such as two-component fluid: gaseous carrier and phase-change component and single multi-phase fluid as the working fluid is studied to get high thermal efficiency. In Stirling engine with a composite fluid, a thermodynamic supercritical heat recovery and heating process is proposed and demonstrated to improve the heat transfer of the heat regenerator and cooler of common gaseous Stirling engine. The criteria for the choice of the working fluids are also formulated.
