The images below show some of The Stirling engine (or Stirling's air engine as it was known at the time) was invented and patented by Robert Stirling in 1816. The project aims to the realization of a system for the cogeneration of 1 – 3 kW of electrical power and 8 to 24 kW of thermal power (for heating or hot sanitary water generation) by integrating the engine in a pellet boiler, achieving an overall efficiency of about 0,85 – 0,9. The heat sink is the environment at surrounding temperature. Stirling Engine is also called as Hot Air Engine. The description for this example reads: “Hot-air-propelled warship and box.

Stirling is a Heat Engine which converts heat Energy into Mechanical energy. OK, two days after my first attempt of building a homemade stirling engine, I somehow cooled off and tried again. Simple stirling hot air engine made at home with simple tools ,2 cans a baloon welding rod steel angle grinder disc for flywheel ,steel wool for displacer and some electrical connectors ,fishing line. Sounds great, but it's not good for cars because it can't rev up quickly and it takes about 5 minutes to get the engine hot enough to run well. What caught my eye, one pictured here as No.5, are some Stirling-engine powered boats. In the family of heat engines, “Stirling engine” is defined as a “closed-cycle regenerative hot air engine”. It is the presence of a regenerator that distinguishes the Stirling engine from hot air engines (Organ, 1997).
