Abstract
The report describes analytical, laboratory, and field research conducted to optimize the use of rivers, specifically in Poland, for once-through cooling of steam electric power plants. Maximum discharge and receiving water temperatures, based on biological criteria, are coupled with natural flow and temperature variations to determine acceptable flow/temperature regimes for streams over an annual cycle. Controllable variables, such as repair schedules, reserve capacity, power plant size, hybrid cooling system size and operation, and low flow augmentation via reservoirs, are evaluated as mechanisms to modify electrical power output. The acceptable temperature/flow regimes in streams are then compared to various power system configurations and schedules to optimize the annual generation of electric power.
