Analyses of design and features of air condensers operation

For a long period of time air condensers (AC) were used only for steam turbines of low capacity – from 1 to 15 MW. An air condenser for a turbine of higher capacity (160 MW) was for the first time applied at Utrillas TPP, constructed in 1970 in a water-short region of Spain. The condenser was manufactured by GEA company (Germany).
