    JAFARIFAR, N., BEHZADI, M.M. and YAGHINI, M. 2019. The effect of strong ambient winds on the efficiency of solar updraft power towers: a numerical case study for Orkney. Renewable energy [online], In Press. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2019.01.058
    Solar updraft tower (SUT) is a simple power plant in which ventilation of heated air inside a channel drives a turbine. This system is recognised as suitable for areas with abundant solar radiation. As a result, there is ...
