Course Objective

The objective of this continuing education course, What Every Engineer Should Know About Combined-Cycle Gas Turbine Plant Cooling Towers, is to fortify the technical expertise of the professional engineer in the area of counterflow mechanical draft cooling tower designs for state-of-the-art CCGT plants.

Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 1/25/2019)
317-What Every Engineer Should Know About Combined-Cycle Gas Turbine Plant Cooling Towers
This course represents the third in a series of cooling tower-related training courses developed by John Cooper, one of the world’s most experienced power plant 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 SunCam courses include numerous photographs and quality drawings as an accompaniment to his description of counterflow mechanical draft cooling tower designs for combined-cycle gas turbine plants.
 
 
This Course Includes:
•    A review of the impact of the shale gas revolution on nuclear and coal-fired electric power generation
•    Description of a typical combined-cycle gas turbine power plant
•    Advantages of CCGT plants over nuclear and coal-fired power plants
•    Description of cooling tower designs commonly used in CCGT plants
•    Issues with existing CCGT plant cooling towers: wood structure degradation, fill fouling, and nuisance vapor plumes
•    Description of new technologies that can improve CCGT plant cooling tower durability and reliability, and reduce environmental intrusiveness.
