This model is about a solar energy tower or solar chimney power plant (SCPP) in performance modeling technique for the assistance of Reverse Osmosis (RO) desalination plant. Power demand or load from the RO will be responsible for the SCPP. In case of sun-off periods, a Horizontal wind turbine (HWT) beside battery banks would be used to supply the power needed. The system is addressing the effect of operating conditions such as  solar energy or wind speed on the performance. The user has to assign some operating conditions such as solar radiation, wind speed, and ambient temperature. Users can change the material to measure the effect on the losses and power. The model calculates the performance aspects such as:
1-Energy streams.
2-The developed power.
3-Heat transfer.
4-Energy losses.
The system units are:
1-Solar chimney tower with wind turbine.
3-Battery bank.
4-Solar Radiation Model (SRM).
5-Reverse Osmosis desalination plant.


**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
