Re: Useful - According to everyone it is feasible ??

They did say that it will run on other fuels and they did mention wood pellets, which I guess would be the same as husks.
As for 20kW Thanh I have no idea how you could build one at his specifications.

Re: Useful - According to everyone it is feasible ??

Thanh you could look back at the last post of the 10kW model coming up for sale.
The 20kW is feasible, yes, but it would need to built well and be rather large. I think Ian brought this up on another post and explained all the difficulties that it would create from a backyard workshop.

Re: ITS GENIOUS™ - 10 kW portable CHP stirling

Now that is something else! A high kW output with such a small dimension.
Well done Guys. Looking forward to your video release.

Re: Engine vacuum

Go for it Thanh. They can be very finicky to get set up, but once working they sound real neat. I have made two in my time and found that cast iron brake cylinders work well with a very thin walled steel or stainless steel piston as the expansion of the metals are near the same, though sometimes sta...

Re: This is my first beta stirling engine !!

Hi Thanh - I Have been away for several weeks out in the desert without any internet and couldn't contact anyone, but now home with a very sick car.
Anyway! That is a very impressive engine and looks so great.
Do you have plans for that one Thanh or is this one from your head. - I like It -

Re: Can anyone build me a Stirling engine for a BBQ rotisserie?

High CB - The voltage I normally talk about is 12VDC and/or 6VDC. For small models 200 mA would be easily available and give the good results for a small Rotisserie. These can be obtained from good barbeque places and are available in 1.5VDC and 12VDC as well as 240VAC. All in all we are talking abo...

Re: Can anyone build me a Stirling engine for a BBQ rotisserie?

Hi JCal If you want to run a rotisserie for a barbecue you do not need much power. A small well made Sterling engine will drive one with a pulley system (1:4 ratio) quite well. I do not believe you need anywhere near 10 Watts probably closer to 300mA would be more like it. You could use the heat fro...
