Closed-loop, evaporative cooling systems (Wet Surface Air Coolers) are a cost-effective heat transfer technology (for cooling and condensing) in simple and combined cycle power plants that also optimize use of scarce water resources. In addition to providing lower outlet temperatures and requiring less space and horsepower (HP), the WSAC can use poor quality water as spray makeup.
