.that bit should be hot you can run a mechanical pump on the engine but it only pumps when the engine's running I quite like to get the cooling going before there's any heat around so I've got a very small electrical pump in the seacock over there but I've got the water flowing and I will now check everything is off to start with I've got some pressure I shall turn the gas on at the source I've got a bit of crosswind at the moment so my little lighter might get blown out.
But I shall try and get a flame oh, I've got a flame eh, that was well behaved sometimes they go pop have I got a flame I think I've got a flame But I can't see anything. it's ignited this one is usually the one that misbehaves and it pops like that I've got a flame. Hooray! And that just acts as a cooker, does it Yes, it is a gas hob I've got three of them and, um life is less busy if you've only got one of them.
Stirling Engine Powered by Fresnel LensConcentrated Solar Power
Hi Gang! As promised, I tried out my Stirling engine with my fresnel lens, basically powering it with concentrated solar power. And as you'll see, it worked very well. For those not familiar with fresnel lenses, they take a large area of sunlight, in this case 2 feet by 4 feet, and focus, or concentrate it down to a smaller area. I wanted to keep my Stirling engine upright so that I could spray water onto its top plate. So before the sunlight got too focused, I intercepted it with this mirror and reflected it up onto bottom of the Stirling.
Engine's cylinder. I knew from the start that my fresnel lens doesn't focus too well, so that's why I built my Stirling engine with such a large diameter cylinder. And my cunning plan worked. To better show the parts, here's a bit of the assembly. Here's the fresnel lens by itself. I've attached a sunfinder to the side so I could make the fresnel lens point directly at the sun. Seeing this circle of light here tells me that it's in position. Then I attach the mirror. But first I turn it backwards to see what.
The concentrated sunlight looks like at that point. I want something squarish, that covers the middle of the mirror fairly well. I then turn the mirror back over to face the lens and use a clamp to hold it in place. Notice the use of welding goggles to protect my eyes. Looking at concentrated sunlight is like looking at more than one sun at the same time. I'm being careful not to reflect too much up here. I've already melted some of the frame there before. Next, to put the stand in place that will hold the Stirling engine.
And finally, the Stirling engine. To make sure the sunlight is being concentrated onto the cylinder, I look down into the big mirror. I want sunlight on the bottom of the big cylinder here, and not up here on the top plate. And here it is running. The purpose of this big steel top plate is to act as a heat sink. It takes the heat from the hot air in the big cylinder underneath and cools it. To help with the cooling I spray some water over the top plate.
Spraying water matters more indoors where I used an alcohol lamp to heat the big cylinder. The problem is that the hot fumes rise up the sides and heat the top plate too. But I found that the air movement outdoors made a huge difference on cooling. The outdoor air flowed over my big top plate, or heat sink, carrying the heat with it. Just as I'd hoped it would. I sprayed water anyway, but the top plate stayed relatively cool on its own, indefinitely. I also wanted to see if it would turn my homemade cooling fan.
And it did! It wasn't needed for outdoor cooling, but it served as a test load on the engine. Well, thanks for watching! See my channel, rimstarorg, for more tutorials like this. That includes one explaining how this Stirling engine works along with demonstrations of it running indoors. Another showing me assembling my fresnel lens support structure and mirror in more detail, and then using it as a solar cooker to fry some eggs for lunch. And one showing stepbystep how to make a simpler Stirling engine using a small tomato can for the cylinder.

IronHorse DC Drives KickStart
Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. Today I am going to show you our new DC Drives by our brand Ironhorse. We started offering DC motors and now we have the drives to control them. There is a huge install of DC motors and drives in the industrial environment because they are less expensive than AC drives and typically have a better low speed performance and are great choices for battery operated jobs, portable machines and more. There are 37 new parts with this product launch with 6 GSD families and several accessories.
We have input voltages with Dual voltages of 12 24 volt DC, 12 24 volt AC and 120 240 volt AC with output voltages of 12, 24, 90 and 180 volts DC!

Alternative Energy Sources
Alternative energy sources. By Mark Koh. The world is using energy like it is nothing. We are currently consuming over 500,000 inaudible of energy per year. Even worse, the energy we are using is coming from fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are non renewable or depleting source of energy that is terrible to the environment. One proposal we have for alternative energy sources is solar power, or energy that comes from the sun. When sunlight hits solar panels, it can be converted into electricity for homes or anything that needs it. Although.
The panels can be expensive, the process is quite simple, as you can see, and in the end it pays off. Right now solar energy is being massively used for small things such as street lights and speed trackers. Solar panels have also been fitted onto home and areas that have a lot of sun, and can gather enough energy to run at least some of the house electricity. There are cars that have been custom fitted with solar panels, but most of these have been made individually and are not.
Mass produced. We are hoping in the near future solar cars like this will be used by the majority of the public. A different alternative is wind energy. As another renewable energy source, it is very beneficial to the world. The wind turbine can move a generator to create energy without harming the environment. As wind turns large turbines, it works a generator in the box behind it. This creates electricity, which is transmitted through wires to power anything necessary. Although some might consider these structures ugly, and not harmonizing to the landscape, others.
Deem them majestic as the wind turns these beautiful pieces of art. Wind power is currently used to generate power for many lighthouses, which is a great use for them because since lighthouses are typically on points, there's a lot of wind to create energy. Although wind turbines don't generate as much power as fossil fuels, and there are conditions under which you must live to use them, optimistically we will use them to power homes and buildings in upcoming generations. The final source of alternative energy is hydropower, also known as hydroelectricity, which is.
Electricity generated by moving water. As you probably know movement is a type of energy. Well water moves fast and strong, therefore creating a lot of energy. The use of water as a tool for human needs has come a very long way since the days of water mills turning gears to make clothing. It is not process including turbines, generators, powerhouses, and dams. The water goes through the dams, spins the turbine causing the generator to make electricity, and then come out the other side of the dam and flows back into the river. As you can see here, the water.
Coming out of the dam has a lot of force, which is where the creators of hydro electricity came up with the idea for it. It is a very stunning site, and attracts many people to see it in action. Hydro electricity is already being used in many places as a main source of energy. This source isn't taken for granted like some of the other alternatives are. If technology can prove itself up to the task, then maybe we will one day have a small hydro dam locally that supply power to smaller areas. Thank you for.
