Maximum power and efficiency are treated at the maximum power output of an internally and externally irreversible solar-driven power plant heat engine. It was found that the thermal efficiency depends on the cycle-irreversibility parameter for a given value of reservoir temperature ratio. It was also concluded that the external irreversibility parameter must be less than 1.0 for maximum power output.
