waste heat from diesel generator

Postby jagjitsinghchander » Wed Nov 07, 2007 3:08 pm

I have a genset which is powered by a 25 BHP diesel engine.

Can I make a Stirling engine by heat recovery from the

hot air exhaust of the genset.My idea is to generate

some addational electric power by coupling the Stirling engine

with one small AC generator.

The temperature and quantity of waste heat from a Diesel engine would not be adequate to run a Stirling engine & generator to make any signifigant amount of power output.
