In this study, solar system integration into wet cooling tower has been investigated to reduce visible plume formation. To achieve this aim, a novel approach has been introduced. The presented approach allows simultaneous consideration of tower performance and water-cooled solar system factor. In this approach, different scenarios have been explored to achieve the optimum system parameter, packing type, liquid to gas ratio, ambient temperature, number of collectors and solar system temperature difference. Related coding in MATLAB version 7.1 has been developed to get the optimal scenario.
