The article analyzes factors leading to non-uniformity of water distribution in cooling towers. These include imperfections in the design of pipelines and nozzles of the water distribution system of cooling towers. Previous studies conducted on a model of the water distribution system of the tower-type cooling system at Rivne Nuclear Power Plant have revealed uneven water distribution on the nozzles. Simulation of the simultaneity of nozzle activation showed that the nozzle that is activated first has the highest flow rate.
