The optical systei for driving the solar Stirling engine with an output power in the kW range is described. This systei was of the Cassegranian-type and consisted of a parabolic iirror (diaieter 0 2. f/D 30 f: focal length) and a hyperbolic irror (0 . f/D 26). The parabolic airror was co. posed of 181 segiental iirrors . ade fro. glass plates and the hyperbolic iirror was iade fro. Al plate. The Stirling engine was developed by Isshiki et al. The input power of sun rays converged by the optical syste. ranged fro. 3. 0 to 3. 2kW and the output power of this engine was about 1kW.
