Illustrations of our experience and know-how

A utility company planned a new layout for the placement of the air cooled condensers (ACC) in their power plant. The influence that upstream cooling tower exhaust could potentially play on the ACC performance was a concern of the utility. CPS was hired to perform an analysis to evaluate the proposed location with regards to the performance.

  • CPS conducted simulations (CFD) with varying crosswinds to determine the overall affect of the cooling tower exhaust on the ACC units.
  • An in-depth analysis was performed on the wind interaction with surrounding structures and the recirculation zones created throughout the plant.
  • CPS was able to advice the client on an optimized location and improved overall site layout with regards to the performance of the ACC units.
