In this blog I am trying to figure out if the Stirling engine generates enough power to run the electronic data acquisition system based on a PSoC6.
First I am going to measure how much current and voltage the PSoC6 requires. Then I am going to measure how much current and voltage the Stirling engine generates.
Finally, I am going to measure the engine speed:
The motor-generator set puts out about a quarter Watt, which is easily enough to run a low power microcontroller, but for now I will keep it simple and power the electronics separately.
Update - Temperature Measurement:
I added a temperature measurement adventure with the Stirling engine...
