Stirling engine to generate 12V power in a car

Postby info___3749 » Thu Aug 14, 2008 4:38 am

I was thinking of removing the alternator and install something else.
I've seen someone with 2 accu's and a solar pannel. But i think
that's not efficient enough. Also got an garage so... no sun there

Than i thought. What's in the car that's useless... heat Now we get
rid of the heat whit the radiator in front. But we also could use
that heat. Heat equals energie. So i thought again (not getting an
headake) about somethink like a Stirling engine. I know Stirling
engine will only get 50% of the Carnot-Faktor but could it be enough
for an alternator.

Also the heat from the exhaust could be used .

Good thing is that is don't have an A/C. Bad thing is that i always
hear music

But were to find a small Stirling engine?

For testing i thougt about to let the radio run fisrt on the stering
and when that's doing good i will use it for the whole car.
