Abstract

A study on the performance of cooling tower in steam power plant by using the Cussons technology steam plant to conduct an experiment and analyze the effect of flow rate control and water make-up control to the cooling tower. This study investigate the flow rate of water from cooling tower effect the condensate time, the condensate flow rate, and the efficiency of steam turbine by using 3 different flow rate of cooling tower for 12,000 L/hr, 10,000 L/hr and 8,000 L/hr. Then the experiment is separated for 2 types, one is for the 2 nozzles fully open and the other is 3 nozzles fully open. Comparison between 2 nozzles and 3 nozzles was also performing in this analysis. An attempt was made for analyzing the effect of water make-up control to the performance of cooling tower but due to technical problems there are no data taken regarding the amount of make-up water. The calculation for efficiency of cooling tower has been calculated and the best efficiency is at the flow rate of 12,000 L/hr followed by 10,000 Llhr and 8,000 Uhr. Not much significance difference was observed between 2 nozzles and 3 nozzles with the efficiency is range between 0.5- 0.65. The result also show the time of condensate which is taken and recorded for each 15 L of condensate water fill in the condensate tank. Condensate flow rate is faster as the cooled water flow rate is faster due to the less time of condensate occurred. The 3 nozzles were found to be the best effect in the cooling tower performance than the 2 nozzles. For more cooled water flow rate is set, we can have a better performance effect to the power plant.
