Finding solutions for increasing energy demands is being globally pursued. One of the promising solutions is the utilization of renewable forms of energy with thermo-mechanical conversion systems such as Stirling engines. Nowadays, effort is made in industry and academia to promote the development of Stirling technology. In this context, this thesis was first focused on modelling of High Temperature Difference (HTD) gamma-type Stirling engine prototype (ST05-CNC) and investigating means of improving its performance. Secondly, newly parallel-geometry mini-channel regenerators (with hydraulic diameters of 0.5, 1, 1.5 mm) and their test facility were developed and fabricated to enhance engine performance.
