A new model for a solar updraft tower is presented. It is based on a one-dimensional description of the fully transient gasdynamics in an updraft power plant from the outer end of the collector to the top of the tower. All the main physical effects are included. The model is derived from basic gasdynamic equations, a low Mach number asymptotics is performed and numerical simulations are shown.
