This study dealt with water evaporation and consumption of power plant cooling systems and evaluated six simple generic evaporation prediction models, one for cooling towers and five for cooling ponds/lakes using field data provided by twelve utilities. Also evaluated in the study is a regional comparison of evaporation rates of cooling towers and cooling ponds/lakes with the objective of determining which of the two cooling system types is more water consumptive in terms of evaporation only.
