Question: calculate the minimum rate at which cooling water must be...

Question details

Calculate the minimum rate at which cooling water must be pumped through the condensers of a 800 MW nuclear power plant if the maxi- mum cooling water temperature rise is 15 ℉ The efficiency of the plant is 32%. Assume no heat is lost to the atmosphere directly from the system. Give your answer in pounds/hr, and ft3/sec. Assuming the plant is designed with five identical pipes in parallel to carry this cooling water, calculate the diameter of each pipe if the water velocity is 6.0 ft/sec.
