Paper Title:
Electricity Generating from Small Scale Solar Updraft Tower for Remote Area
  Abstract

Solar updraft tower is an alternative technology for electricity generating from solar energy. It’s suitable for use in remote area, where there is high potential of solar radiation, because the constructions are cheap and the technologies involved are conventional. From the study of small scale solar updraft tower by using the computation fluid dynamics program and experimental, show that the hot air velocity in the solar updraft tower from the computation fluid dynamics program similarly with the experimental data. From this study, the small-scale solar updraft tower with 72 m length in each side of solar collector, air inlet height of 0.5 m above the ground, an updraft tower of 30 meter high with 1.2 m length of each side was studied to determine the performance. It was found that the electricity generating from this model was 6893 W/day, enough to supply electricity for up to 13 families of small community in the rural area.
