The author in this paper is investigating the performance on the basis of numerical simulation of Salt Gradient Solar Pond (SGSP) sizing for power generation. The simulation was carried out for various salts used in the SGSP and they are NaCl, NaHCO3, MgCl2 and BaCl2. The thermal efficiency considered as 5 % to numerical simulation and sizing of SGSP for power generation. The simulated results obtained for thermal power plant, Cross sectional area of Pond, flow rate and velocity for the salts NaCl, NaHCO3, MgCl2 and BaCl2. The various simulated results were compared and it was found that the best result suited for the salt and BaCl2 and least suited for the salt NaCl.
