The power conversion unit of a large solar chimney power plant converts the fluid power, first into mechanical power, and then into electrical power. In this dissertation an experimental setup is developed to analyze the novel turbine used to harness the wind energy using a theoretical model validated with the measurement of the existing prototype in UTP. First, the solar chimney concept and the related studies on the turbine performance are introduced, and it is shown how the turbines works based on the solar chimney concept. Then, an experimental setup and turbine model is developed. The experimental procedures of the turbine analysis, testing procedure and equipment involved were being determined through numbers of literature reviews and availability of equipment inside university laboratory. Preliminary data are investigated experimentally and numerically. The aim of the experimental investigation is to further validate the findings based on the existing prototype shows that the novel turbine is capable of operating at lower than 3.5 m/s of air flow which is less than the conventional turbine which runs on average of 6.0 m/s of air flow. The methodology of this project study had been arranged accordingly from initial literature review of the subject until the experimental procedures and the analysis method was determined
