A theoretical model is presented to design dry cooling tower systems and to evaluate their off-design performances. The influence of the more important design parameters on the tower dimensions is shown. A preliminary optimum size is predicted by means of a computer code using a simplified cost model. Moreover, the influence of the designed cooling system on the performance of thermoelectric and/or nuclear power plants is analyzed. The study of the performance of air heat exchangers with plastic tubes (e. g. high-density polyethylene) and of wet and dry-wet cooling systems, as well as a deeper economical cost analysis represent the natural development of this research.
