An experimental investigation of a solar chimney turbine design is undertaken. The aim of the program is to demonstrate and evaluate a proposed solar chimney turbine design. The measured results of an experimental model turbine are presented and the turbine efficiency calculated. The current turbine design has a total-to-total efficiency of 85–90% and total-to-static efficiency of 77–80% over the design range. Secondary objectives are to compare the measured and predicted results and through investigation of the experimental results suggest improvements to the turbine design.
