Paper Title: Power Generation from a Man Made Tornado inside a Solar Thermal Tower
Authors Name: Prajwalita Avasarala

Abstract: Everywhere we see, due to increased environmental concerns, people are moving on to natural, renewable, eco-friendly, non-conventional resources for power generation. But there is a huge amount of untapped energy in disastrous natural phenomena such as typhoons, cyclones, hurricanes, and tornadoes. The novelty of the idea lies in mankind’s power to generate energy not just from Mother Nature’s boons but also from her banes. This paper builds upon the idea of a Solar Thermal Power Tower Plant and describes how a tornado could be regenerated inside it, and its ferocious wind power be used to generate electricity. This paper traces the developments that have been taking place in power tower technology and introduce what we think would improve the efficiency. An innovative idea modifies the original solar chimney concept by adding spiral guides to initiate a tornado-like wheeling motion. Due to conservation of momentum, angular velocity of air increases as is approaches the centre of the chimney. Power is extracted from rotational wind energy through turbine generators.
