The Optimization of ITD in Direct Air-Cooled System
In order to improve the technical economy of direct air-cooled system, based on the thermodynamic model of the air-cooled system, taking the annual total cost as the objective function, the face velocity of air and the ITD (initial temperature difference) value as parameters, this article has researched the optimal ITD of direct air-cooled system in theory, and given the uncertainty analysis in the end to reflect the influence of economic parameters. The results shows that the technical economy of direct air-cooled system can achieve optimal under the condition of economic parameters change. Thus, the results of studying will provide helpful guidance for the optimization of direct air-cooled system.
