Abstract

The aim of this project is to design, build, and test a Stirling engine capable of generating between 200-500 watts of electricity. Here, we are using parabolic dish reflectors to concentrate the solar rays on the hot end of the engine. They have the highest heat-electricity conversion efficiencies among all designs (up to 30 %). The size of the concentrator is determined by its engine. A Stirling system’s concentrator with a nominal maximum direct normal solar insolation of 1000 W/m2 and a 25-kW capacity of several designs were studied before settling on an alpha type configuration of the engine. The heater, cooler, regenerator, flywheel and piping systems have been designed, will be analysed and constructed. Instrumentation was built into the engine to record temperatures throughout the assembly. Several tests were performed on the engine in order to improve its running efficiency, and critical problem areas were isolated and addressed.
