RPdigital: Why is it smoking? Is it too hot for Stirling and steam engine would be
jlw1911: Wow... that mirror is hot enough to discolor stainless.
Pyotr Magpie: Did you try with larger flywheel and reducing gear (for higher speed) ?
badsaddamdotnet: use oil not water?
abderrahmane abdoune: The ideal is to flatten the surface which receives sunlight
Loki gerberian shepsky: Did you try it with your Fresnes Lens ? What the power output difference
between lens and mirror ?
John Bostwick: Stirling Engines are great .

Yves Baggi: Hi,
why do all the stirlings I see here and elsewhere seem kinda toy sized?
is it possible to get real power (~1kW) out of a stirling?
give a temp differenc and pressure, what are the ranges when we'd use steam
engines vs stirling engines for power adn efficiency?
KippTheKidd: I've always thought it'd be possible to track the sun with muscle wire. It
shrinks when heated. If several muscle wires are attached like cables
between the mirror and its target, when the hot point drifts away from the
ideal point on the Stirling, the sunlight hits the wire, which contracts
and pulls the mirror back to the correct orientation.
tv205: sunpower stirling engines rule 6kw just from the sun in texas
Link Knight: not that much. coz the fresnel lens would already concentrate the light
anyway. then the dish would basically do nothing. except possibly have a
hole melted in it by the fresnel lens. its all about the size of the area
of sunlight you get in the first place. so setting heaps of other
mirrors/lens up at the dish would increase its power AS LONG AS you could
keep it from melting the dish.
pragenius: @pmryan25 Actually, there is a kind of hydroelectric power plant where you
can pump water up the dam in the day using pumps. In the night, you run the
water down again through a turbine. Cheaper and better than batteries. So
in the day, you generate enough to last through the night. You store the
night-time quota by pumping the water up the dam and storing it as
gravitational potential energy of water. But this is only possible for big
power plants. Don't worry man, I got your back ;D
Migueldeservantes: May I inquiry of where did U get a hold of that Stirling engine?
brennoCH: questa è free energy
cromeaxe: Sounds like masturbating
Orlandafloozo: How was this developed? Could I buy one?
SPAGHETTIMONSTER1: for some reason that make me think of old steam engines? looks like it
generates a lot of heat. man all these people willing to do the work on
stuff to help a+ cant wait to see tomorrow! maybe get some ideas myself?
Rodrigo Boos: Nice vid.. What if you installed a peltier at focal point... with the cool
side glued to a water bowl... you would get some wattage - no moving parts,
etc.. for a while...
c9ari: Dan that is about as cool as can be! I love to see the Stirling doing work.
Between the Stirling and the sun anything can be done.
GREENPOWERSCIENCE: @LittleDueler THANK YOU:-) for the great comment. Dan
purplemutantas: Solar panels are rather inefficient. The best way to make electricity seems
to be by spinning a generator. With the right combination of engine and
generator, you should be able to produce more power than a comparably sized
Gort Newton: Stored-energy systems have been around for over 150 years, but making them
small and low cost are the problems. Some people have thought of pumping
air into an underground tank during the day and releasing it thru a
generator at night.
vee00Roar: OMFG he just teleported away. do a video on teleportation dan.
dvu90: I'm interested in your teleporting technology @ 0:34
Wang Li Min: @alextepes hahaha...
GREENPOWERSCIENCE: @crevier777 This one:-)
stevegrello: found it my idea is a little different but this tracks the sun and moon
without moving at all. i can put a weblink here but google the following.
its from rawlemon architects in barcelona spain.
GARY FUMIA: Abuot the same as a buffalo fart.
diego santos: hi, is great this engine. do you sell it ? or do you know where i can buy
John Wilkinson: The 12kw death ray vid appears the most efficient though :)
pmryan25: @ElRollio82 Give it some thought, I'm sure you can make it work out in your
head, you're smart. If not, I guess we'll just stay on fossil fuels
onesojourner: you should do some videos on wood gas. that seems to be the most promising
way to produce electricity with a motor.
astrialkil: @fundude2 I think 7K would be about right for most homes, with extra
electricity your not using going up on regular power grid to give you a
MrBrentles: How would you go with gearing a car alternator to the right rpm?
purplemutantas: That's true. Less maintenance is a big advantage to solar. Combinations are
always good. I have thought about doing a combo of solar panel and wind
MeMad Max: Hey have you tried to mount a small mirror on the other side of the
cylinder? Nothing too big, about 4-5 inches(parabolic?), just enough to
catch the light that makes it around the cylinder(for wider focus main
mirrors of course) and reflect it back onto the cylinder? Also, have you
been able to test this setup in the video to see how much load it can
bryncomeaux: can you say geocide good i knew you could
storkfmny: Mae it BIGGER!! 10X=120v @ ?amps
definition of is: satellite dish actuators and redrokcom led trackers
ZeroFossilFuel: What is meant by the morse code message at the end? bc u ta0wbc 0
pmryan25: @ElRollio82 At night? You turn out the lights and go to bed. Really though,
I'm always taken aback when people ass this question. It's really silly,
here we are discussing how much $ can be saved by solar & someone attempts
to throw what they may consider a wrench in the entire idea. @ nite you use
a battery that you charged during day or you pull from the grid where
they've stored mass solar energy in their BIG batteries. Anyway, it's
bedtime for me, can someone turn out the sun please?
John Wilkinson: You are my HERO
sethwoot: Set a second freznel and second stirling bearly position to track after
first and turn the two systems at the base .. it will track and generate
all day..and even reposition from a water tank that comes to boil with
freznel lens ... when water disapates toilet float goes down clicking a
gear and moving to the second
Europe85: CAN A V.W. AIR COOLED ENGINE BE CONVERTED FOR SOLAR POWER?
jairfloripa: How do I make an engine of this? What material should I use? you have a
tutorial where I can use as base.
wertyh11: Great video Chromakey addition eh.
DiyStirlingGuy: Wow, very quiet!
Erich Fahrenholz: Dan, I see the idea here and I think the stirling engine is a great
idea--however I don't have the tools or technical knowledge to actually
construct one. However, I digress...couldn't you improve cooling by making
the flywheel a fan instead of a solid piece of metal? It could direct cool
airflow over the heat sink and improve cooling significantly with little
cost in mechanical work.
