Hi all, I have a 2500 watt generator head, and a nine foot satellite dish. I've been looking at solar furnace driven Stirling engine driven generators, and I'm dying to build one! My question to the group is: Have any of you built a Stirling engine, and do you have drawings or plans? What were the sticky issues you encountered? Does anyone have a GOOD non-math oriented description of exactly how it works...IE timing, cooling etc.? If you haven't seen one of these things yet, check it out online...they're super cool! Here's one running on the reflection from a shaving/make-up mirror: http://video.google.com/videosearch?hl= ... v&start=10 I want to see if I can run my 2500 watt head with one. It's normally run with a six or seven horsepower engine. Any help, or comments are welcome...Thanks!
