A linear compressor is well known for its excellent performance in Stirling cryocooler, space application. Minimum linkages, lesser friction points and lower noise characteristics make the linear compressor more promising in the space application. The same technology has not emerged as an alternative compression technology for ground applications such as home refrigerators, air conditioners, electronic cooling. This paper discusses the challenges observed during the implementation of the moving coil linear compressor in home refrigerators. The prototype moving coil linear compressor has been developed and tested by integrating to the home refrigerator.
