In this thesis, a new model to predict cooling tower performance is created to give a more accurate picture of the various energy conservation measures that are available for cooling towers. The weaknesses of the current model are demonstrated and prediction capabilities of the new model analyzed and : Pranav Yedatore Venkatesh.

The performance of the natural draft dry cooling tower is quite dependent on the weather conditions. As the ambient temperature increases the cooling capacity and the performance of the power plant decreases which is the primary concern in the use of natural convection.

As the ambient temperatures will peak in the summer. A natural draft dry cooling tower (Heller Type) is one of the most widely used types of systems. Studies show that generally, any increasing crosswind speed causes Heller cooling tower performance.
