Abstract

A simple analysis was performed on the air flow through a Solar Chimney Power Plant System (SCPPS) and a thermodynamic cycle of the system including the environment was established. Mathematical models for the ideal and actual cycle efficiencies were also established. The research results showed that the ideal cycle efficiency ...
