Sonu kumar singh,  Prof. Ashish Muchrikar
The main aim of this work is to explore better efficiency by redesigning solar chimney power plant with using divergent and radial curvature on the roof of SCPP collectors. In this work we did a water dynamic analysis of a solar smoke plant with different height of exhaust space. (such as H2 =1.85m, 3m, 4m & 5m) and radial curvature on collector roof of 10m, 15m & 20m. Roof inclination and curvature radius of collector is vary by changing the outlet collector height and the inlet collector height is fixed as H1= 1.85m of solar chimney powerplant. It have been observed from the result that inclination and curvature radius of collector roof affect the collector efficiency and the collector efficiency is maximum 47.83% when the height of the collector is H2 = 5m and radial curvature on collector roof is 20 m.
Keywords- solar chimney, collector height, collector efficiency, CFD analysis etc.
