•What wind effect mitigation methods have you found to be most effective? E.g. vertical wind screens, solid walls, horizontal skirts, louvers to direct flow to fan inlet etc.
•Have you used water spray system in steam turbine exhaust to condense steam prior to ACC and reduce load on the ACC? If yes, can you quantify effectiveness of such system in reducing ACC load?
•Can you share any useful study results on various mitigation methods and their effectiveness?
•Can you recommend some best engineering firms that can perform a study (filed testing/CFD etc) of effectiveness of different wind effect mitigation methods at a given plant?
