近期，我院教师王乾等的“AN ANALYTICAL MODEL ON THERMAL PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF COUNTER FLOW WET COOLING TOWER”的成果被期刊《Thermal Science》录用。
This paper proposes an analytical model for simultaneous heat and mass transfer
processes in a counter flow wet cooling tower, with the assumption that the enthalpy
of the saturated air is a linear function of the water surface temperature.
The performance of the proposed analytical model is validated in some typical
cases. The validation reveals that, when cooling range is in a certain interval,
the proposed model is not only comparable with the accurate model, but also can
reduce computational complexity. In addition, with the proposed analytical model,
the thermal performance of the counter flow wet cooling towers in power plants is
calculated. The results show that the proposed analytical model can be applied to
evaluate and predict the thermal performance of counter flow wet cooling towers.
