Simultaneous measurement of air flow conditions and resultant blade and gearbox loading at large-scale cooling system fans
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Axial flow fans used in large-scale air-cooled steam condensers (ACSCs) may operate under distorted inflow conditions. These conditions occur due to the prevailing wind conditions, the presence of ...
Influence of geometric and environmental parameters on air-cooled steam condenser performance
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Air-cooled steam condensers (ACSCs) are used in the power generation industry to directly condense turbine exhaust steam in areas where cooling water is expensive or unavailable. Large axial flow fans ...
Simulating the effect of wind on the performance of axial flow fans in air-cooled steam condenser systems
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The use of air-cooled steam condensers (ACSCs) is the preferred cooling method in the chemical and power industry due to stringent environmental and water use regulations. The performance of ACSCs is ...
