Revolutionary Solar! Stirling engine mount + Liquid piston tracker
March 17, 2010
Seasonally balanced solar concentrator (2 dishes!) and the liquid piston tracker. The focal points do NOT move so it could power a stirling engine. David Williams in Canada has calculated that the ideal dish to have its center of gravity at the focus on the axis of rotation at equinox would have a depth that is 1.85 times its focal length.
(centers of gravity must be on the equatorial axis at equinox for best results.
I suggest making that dish and cutting it in half. I would love more input! This can be modeled by people with CAD or animation experience. Please and thankyou!
