Ok, lost one of my links, so will put the others up here for posterity

http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/TECB/

http://large.stanford.edu/courses/2010/ph240/weisse1/


the one i lost was a full page of converters and calculators.
might have been the Antherra page, since i was looking at their voltage regulator schematic.
will try again at home.

We have been doing alot of research and development in the area of free piston sterling engines an extremely efficient design that beats the socks off of any beta or alpha sterling. I will keep this thread posted on our progress but we are aiming at a sterling that could be made for 500$ give or take and produces around 1 kW. I will post pictures or video in the next month or so hopefully. Keep tinkering this is the best renewable back back up power option in my opinion!
