MetadataShow full item record
The solar chimney power plant (SCPP) is a renewable energy system that harnesses solar energy for power generation. The system consists of three components, namely solar collector, chimney and wind turbine. To date, minimal research has been conducted on the turbine performance improvement. This work proposes the usage of the Savonius turbine under different configurations in the SCPP's collector region to enhance power generation.
