In order to calibrate numerical models of cooling tower plumes, EDF has developed a wide range experiment near the BUGEY nuclear power plant, including aircraft and remote sensing measurements in the plumes over short periods as well as routine measurements over long periods (photographs of the plumes, micro- meteorological networks).With all the data collected, two types of models have been validated : 1/The first type of model, used to build statistics of visible plume characteristics (length, reduction of insulation and solar radiation), was compared to routine measurements and show a fairly good agreement with observations.2/The second type (a 3D model and a spectral model of microphysics) designed for studying with more details the dynamical and microphysical processes in the plume was used to simulate particular meteorological conditions observed during the campaigns.
