Performance Evaluation of Solar Updraft Tower

Fayaz N | Mhammed Shefeek K | Lince Mathew


Abstract: The solar updraft towers (solar chimney) are non- conventional power plant with high techno-economic importance. In this work, the performance evaluation of a solar updraft tower is carried out based on the parameters such as roof angle, inlet height and for different irradiation values using ANSYS Fluent 14.0. The results are presented in the form of contour plots of velocity and temperature. The effects of angle of attack, inlet height and irradiation are discussed in this work.
