About this item
Solar Chimney Power Plant Generating Technology presents advanced solar chimney power generating technologies, which aim to help engineers get a comprehensive understanding of the very detailed fundamental theories, technologies, and applications of solar chimney power generating systems. This book focuses mainly on thermodynamic theory, helio-aero-gravity effect, fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics, design for SC turbine, energy storage, and the effect of ambient crosswinds. Some new types of solar chimney systems are also presented.
This book includes comprehensive theories, very detailed technologies, and many well-illustrated, basic configurations of different types of systems, enabling readers to understand fundamental theory, the design methods of solar chimney systems, and to quantitatively know the basic parameters of the construction and operation of these systems.
- The most comprehensive and up-to-date text in solar chimney power generating technologies.
- Includes comprehensive theories, very detailed technologies, and many basic configurations of different types systems.
- Covers the basic mechanisms of fluid flow, heat transfer, power output, energy storage, and operational procedures of SCPPS (solar chimney power plant system) turbines.
