Contents Notes The energy budget approach to cooling ponds has been outlined and applied to cooling ponds. Monthly average weather data from 88 stations throughout the U.S. were used to calculate equilibrium temperatures, heat exchange coefficients, and amount of cooling in various sized ponds receiving the effluent from a standard power plant of 1000-mw capacity, both for average and extreme weater conditions. The data for each station is shown on a chart, and the variation of these results across the U S. is depicted by a series of 28 maps of the U.S. with contours connecting equal values of the parameters. The results may also be used to estimate cooling pond performance for other sized power plants. The maps disclose variations across the U.S., on a given date, of up to 55ÀF in equilibrium temperature, up to 100% difference in heat exchange coefficients, up to 50% difference in heat lost from a given sized pond, and up to 200% difference in the size of a pond necessary to produce an equal cooling effect.
