Formatted Abstract/Summary
The aim of this paper is to give an overview of the research conducted at QGECE on air-cooled heat exchangers, in general and condensers in particular, for their application in geothermal and solar-thermal power plants. This paper will touch on our latest achievements in improving the performance of the cooling towers with the main goal of increasing the power plant efficiency. Application of advanced and supercritical heat exchangers, hybrid cooling, optimal bundle arrangement, wind mitigation techniques, synergies with coal seam gas industry and tower design for small scale power plants will be discussed in details. Further to our theoretical predictions, detailed numerical and experimental research are conducted results of which will be presented and discussed. Finally, this paper also provides an update on our research on the issue of fouling and dust deposition on air-cooled heat exchangers.
