A comprehensive fluid dynamics and heat transfer model to analyze the performance of a solar chimney power plant system (SCPPS) was presented. The relative static pressure was derived, which is capable of giving detailed descriptions of the driving force, maximum system power output and efficiency. Using the solar chimney prototype built in Manzanares, Spain, as a practical example, the numerical results of system relative static pressure ...
