Cooling Tower Optimization

Minimize power usage and operating costs.

Cooling towers are an integral piece of equipment for many processes, from power generation to food processing. Such systems which utilize fans to create draft (both forced and induced) can use a substantial amount of power, representing higher operating costs or decreased operating efficiency.

Opportunity - Minimize Powe Usage and Maximize Cooling Effect

Although on the surface, cooling towers may appear simple with little opportunity for performance changes beyond a rebuild, this is not the case. Ambient conditions (e.g., temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, etc.) have a dramatic effect on the system’s behavior, and can even affect efficiencies from cell to cell. Compound this with variable cooling demands caused by changing process conditions, and there are many interactions that need to be accounted for in cooling system operation. Intelligent systems can learn to understand these multiple factors and their influence, thereby identifying how to adapt to these to keep the system operating as efficiently as possible.
