dc.description.abstractCondenser cooling water flow requirements for large turbine-generator sets are controlled both by the thermal input range of the turbine and the variety of climatic conditions affecting the cooling tower. The resulting requirements on the circulating water pumps are considerably exaggerated relative to normal turbine load variations. One Southwestern electric utility is using three partial capacity pumps driven with two speed motors as a practical solution to this pumping requirement. This paper describes the specific idiosyncrasies of this pumping requirement and the optimization of such cooling systems.
