Simulation of solar chimney power plant with an external heat source

Islamuddin, Azeemuddin and Al-Kayiem, Hussain H. and Gilani, Syed Ihtsham-ul-Haq (2013) Simulation of solar chimney power plant with an external heat source. [Citation Index Journal]



Solar chimney power plant is a sustainable source of power production. The key parameter to increase the system power output is to increase its size but the plant cannot operate during night hours. This study deals with simulation work to validate results of pilot plant at Manzanares and include the effects of waste heat from a gas turbine power plant in the system. The effects show continuous night operation, a 38.8 percent increase in power at 1000 W/m 2 global solar irradiation at daytime and 1.14 percent increase in overall efficiency.
