The present model allows predictions of the thermal performance of spray cooling ponds in the case of zero wind velocity. Droplet cooling is described by modeling of the heat and water vapor transfer to the air. Temperature and humidity of air are obtained by the numerical solution of transport differential equations. Detailed results are presented and discussed. Predictions are in good agreement with the observed thermal performance of spray cooling ponds. Results are utilized for a check of assumptions made by NTU models.
