This model is about solar energy tower or solar chimney power plant. It also named as solar updraft tower (SUT) which is a design concept for a renewable-energy power plant for generating electricity from low temperature solar heat. Sunshine heats the air beneath a very wide greenhouse-like roofed collector structure surrounding the central base of a very tall chimney tower. The resulting convection causes a hot air updraft in the tower by the chimney effect. This airflow drives wind turbines, placed in the chimney updraft or around the chimney base, to produce electricity. The model calculates the design aspects such as:
-Collector total area
User has to assign the power and some operating conditions.
