Wassernutzung für Kühlzwecke [article]

Helmut Kobus, Universität Stuttgart, Universität Stuttgart
More than half of the water supply of West Germany is used for cooling purposes. Since the available minimum cooling capacity of natural waters is insufficient, recirculating systems have to be used. Economic application of available cooling modes under given environmental constraints requires the use of optimisation models. Applications of such a model to the upper Rhine illustrates that the use of such methods leads to considerable energy savings and provides a tool for quantification of the
