Physical modeling of diesel generator exhaust dispersion : Limerick Generating Station unit 1 and 2, Philadelphia Electric Company
Dispersion of exhaust gases from the Diesel Generating Units in the Limerick Generating Station was simulated in the Environmental Wind Tunnel at Colorado State University, using a 1:110 scale model and the concentration levels and excess temperatures at the various air intakes were predicted for different wind directions and stack configurations. The maximum concentrations were found to occur at the air intakes of reactor enclosure buildings. The study shows that it is advantageous to eliminate the bend at the top of the present 7.5-ft stacks and exhaust the gases vertically, in order to ...
