PARAMETRIC BASED EXERGY ANALYSIS OF INDUCED DRAUGHT COOLING TOWERS OF THE THERMAL AND THE LAKHRA POWER PLANTS JAMSHOROPages: 73-79
Authors: Jawed Ahmed Jamali
With the help of energy and exergy analyses of induced draught counterflow wet cooling tower of the thermal power plant Jamshoro and the lakhra coal power plant is demonstrated through employing EES (engineering equation solver) in this paper. First the model was made and then the simulation and the validation, with the help of very rudimentary and basic equations, were performed successfully by utilizing given operating parameters in order to evaluate and calculate the cooling tower performance and other required parameters. The inlet air wet bulb temperature plays tremendous role in causing the change in water and air outlet temperature, cooling tower effectiveness and exergy efficiency and destruction. With the increasing of wet bulb temperature there is direct effects on effectiveness and exergy efficiency of the cooling tower. The mass flow rate of water to air ratio is in the range of 2.47 for the thermal power plant and 2.09 for the lakhra power plant and the ratio is changed with the variation of wet bulb temperature of inlet air. The evaporation loss was very negligible as compared to the flow rate of water.
