Performance Enhancement of Inclined Solar Chimney Power Plant Using Underneath Air-Vents and Thermal Storage Medium
MetadataShow full item record
Solar chimney power plant (SCPP) is a solar thermal energy conversion system which converts solar energy into thermal energy and indirectly to mechanical/electrical energy using air as the working fluid to drive a turbine-generator. The main challenge of SCPP is the plant’s low efficiency. This research focus on improving the SCPP collector’s efficiency through the use of underneath air-vents. The study revealed that the power output of the SCPP with air-vents improved by 60%.
