Quote From Myfordboy’s LTD Stirling Cycle Engine Powered by Frozen Peas:
Is frozen peas the answer to the world’s energy crisis? Maybe not.
The Stirling engine requires that one side of the displacer cylinder is at a higher temperture than the other. The pressure of the enclosed air is increased and reduced by moving it from one end to the other.
As well as using heat to power the engine it will also run when cooled at one end. The direction of rotation will then be in the opposite direction.
