I have run across a very interesting machine that I was wondering if someone might could comment on. It is a version of the Sterling Engine, that uses a turbine instead of a piston. They have just completed phase I testing, and say it was successful. Here is a link:
This describes the technology:
They claim that the energy extracted by the solar panel produces more energy than what it takes to drive the compressor to circulate the helium, and results in: "The system produces 39 kW of power (47 kW by the turbine, less 8 kW for the compressor). That is equivalent to 53 horse power, or enough energy to supply energy for 12 homes."
Does this sound theoretically possible? Any comments would be appreciated; or please forward to anyone who might could comment.
Thank you, and have a blessed day!
