To describe the distributionof the total number of flares per time unit p(E), we bring forward a new self-organized critical model subject to uniform small-scale magnetic element and driving and dissipation. Due to diversity and complex interrelation of processes in the solar atmosphere, one needs to find the “main” process that “drives” the other ones. Magnetic-field reconnection in the sunatmosphere was usually treated as the mainpro cess by the SOC models. We, however, give the crucial role to the annihilation of oppositely charged magnetic elements on the sun surface, the elements being intersections of magnetic tubes with the sunsurface.
