In this configuration, the electricity input to drive the pumps is less than the electricity input to a mechanical compressor of the same delivery pressure and free air delivery and this is principally due to the system's nearly isothermal compression process.
Direct cooling of the charge air during compression to achieve isothermal compression is the key enabler to intracycle waste heat recovery and the high overall efficiency of the cycle.

In actual stirling engines the mass of gas in the dead volume is significant which undergoes isothermal compression and expansion process .
The thermal heat capacity of the HARS is higher than the gas, so as the gas is compressed the heat of compression is rapidly transferred into the HARS, thus stabilising the gas temperature and providing isothermal compression.
Isothermal compression is well-known to reduce the power requirements by minimizing the temperature of the gas entering downstream stages.
