Modelling and validation of corrosion, fouling and scaling in air cooled condensers and effect of prognostic maintenance
Motivation of the project:
Air cooled condensers undergo deterioration in capacity over time due to erosion and fouling. Neither designers nor operators have a tool to assess life of designed equipment or assess performance of existing equipment.
Models to predict deterioration in heat exchanger performance based selected air quality and assessing RUL before and after maintenance.
