As you know, a Stirling engine works by temperature difference.
But if you place the engine on top of a hot stove, wouldn't both the hot and cold side be heated to almost the same amount, the hot side being slightly hotter.
Would it work well in this situation?
Well, when heated by an alcohol lamp the heat also rises up past the cold side, but a wood stove is a much larger heat source.
I may be wrong, what do you think
