Paper Abstract

A standard 660MW turbo-alternator, operated by the CEGB, runs at an energy conversion efficiency of about 38%. In addition to the 660MW electrical power, 600MW of waste thermal power is generated which has to be dissipated via water cooled heat exchangers. A typical 2000MW station has a requirement of about 1.3 billion gallons of cooling water per day. This is more than the daily throughput of most of our rivers and so inland stations are equipped with cooling towers to dump heat from the coolant.
