Dish/Stirling Engine

A dish/Stirling engine is a type of concentrated solar power (CSP) system. A large mirrored dish collects and concentrates the sun’s heat on to a receiver, which absorbs the heat and transfers it to fluid within a Stirling engine. The heat causes the fluid in the engine to expand against a piston or turbine. The mechanical power produced runs a generator or alternator to produce electricity.
