Abstract

•Three mathematical models and the iterative algorithms were developed.•Case studies were carried out to investigate the annual performance of the towers.•The heat rejection rate and water consumption rate of the towers were compared.•The pre-cooling enhancement can go up to 46% in the hottest month.•The pre-cooled tower consumes 70% less water for every MW heat rejection than wet tower.
