Abstract
The report gives results of a 5-year evaluation of the performance of a dry cooling tower for the 20-MW steam-electric generation portion of an 85-MW combined-cycle power plant. Objectives of the study were to: demonstrate dry cooling tower technology at a Massachusetts seacoast site, document and optimize heat rejection performance, evaluate the effect of dry cooling tower operation on the environment, and define the effect of environmental conditions on dry cooling tower performance.
