Design and performance analysis of integrated solar heat and wind power plant (Paperback)
With the decrease of fossil fuel resources and increasing worldwide pollution problems, there is a growing need for an environmentally friendly renewable energy source. It is vital that the utilization of this energy source be economically viable, especially for its possible use in third world countries. Engineers and scientists are increasingly looking to solar energy as a potential answer to this problem. 51]
Man has already tried to harness energy from the sun in various different ways. These include parabolic trough solar power plant, Central Receiver power plants, Dish-Stirling systems, solar pond power plants and Photovoltaic power plant. 51].
