Abstract

Numerical simulations were carried out to analyze the energy storage performance of the solar chimney power plant systems with an energy storage layer. Mathematical models were developed to describe the flow and heat transfer mechanisms of the collector, chimney, and energy storage layer, and the response of different energy storage materials to the solar radiation and the effects of these materials on the power output ...
