Performance Analysis for Natural Draught Cooling Tower & Chimney through Numerical Simulation
The flow field in the hyperbolic natural draft wet-cooling tower, which has great effects on the economy and security of power plant, was studied through numerical simulation. The mathematical model was established and analysed in order to optimize the cooling-tower and to evaluate its efficiency and a Numerical study on a channelchimney system was carried out in order to elucidate the behaviour of heat transfer and fluid flow. A 2D CFD model of natural draught Cooling tower and chimney like heat sink plate is developed the Euler multiphase model was used to simulate the heat and mass transfer in a natural draught cooling tower rain zone and the RNG turbulent model with the dispersed option is used for the turbulence modeling of multiphase flow. The results are presented in terms of local air temperature measurements inside the symmetrically heated channel and between the adiabatic extensions.
