Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 1/25/2019)
310-Introduction to Natural Draft Cooling Towers - For Electric Power Generating Plants
This course represents the first in a series of cooling tower-related training courses prepared by John Cooper, one of the world’s most experienced natural draft cooling tower thermal and hydraulic design engineers.  Formally trained in the Federal Republic of Germany, where the framework for modern cooling tower thermodynamics originated, John’s first SunCam course utilizes numerous photographs and quality drawings as an accompaniment to his descriptions of various natural draft cooling tower designs, systems and components.
 
 
 
This Course Includes:
•    John’s thoughts on why the natural draft cooling tower has become the icon of the global nuclear power industry
•    A discussion of the nature of cooling tower thermodynamics
•    Comparison and contrasting of crossflow and counterflow natural draft cooling tower designs
•    The impact of micrometeorology on the thermal performance of natural draft cooling towers
•    Natural draft cooling tower winter operation procedures
•    A description of state-of-the-art natural draft cooling tower ice prevention systems
