Abstract: This paper presents the design aspect of the dish Stirling system and the prospect of this type of power generation in Bangladesh. In addition, the various prospects of dish Stirling system are studied. Bangladesh is a developing country with a perpetual shortage of electricity and numerous hardships towards meeting the demand. The dish Stirling engine is a new technology using the solar ray to convert it to usable electricity. The economic aspect of this technology delivers significant advantages over the existing solar home system. This work presents the working principle, grid connectivity and economic viability of the Stirling engine system incorporating with the effective design of solar tracking system to enhance the efficiency. A prototype model is implemented to display its feasibility of this technology in Bangladesh. Simulation results and practical outcomes properly demonstrate its effectiveness.
