The solar chimney power plant system (SCPPS), sometimes called solar updraft tower (SUT), is a renewable energy power plant for generating electricity from solar radiation. The system is composed of four parts: chimney, collector, energy storage layer, and power conversion units (PCU). The main objective of the collector is to collect solar radiation to heat up the air inside. As the air density inside the system is less than that of the environment at the same height, natural convection affected by buoyancy, which acts as the driving force, comes into existence. Due to the existence of the chimney which is erected in the middle of the collector, the cumulative buoyancy results in a large pressure difference between the system and the environment.
The present review paper considered various previous study to determine the various basic parameters i.e. pressure, temperature, velocity and Turbulent Kinetic Energy to assessment of the SCPPS
