This study deals with calculation and comparison of performance parameters of three types of horizontal, vertical and mixed corrugated film fill packing, to their actual values in cooling tower of the Bisotoun power plant. Through this, performances of cooling packing are compared with each other. Also utilization of the most appropriate cooling tower in Bisotoun power plant has been investigated. In order to rich the above mentioned goals, added to describing performance of physical mechanisms in wet mechanical counter current cooling towers and Merkelís thermal theory, thermal properties of the pre-mentioned cooling packings are presented also, moreover performance parameters of the three packing are calculated and compared, then the appropriate conclusion is made. The results show that among the three packings, because of having appropriate characteristics like higher surface to volume ratio and mass transport coefficient and so on, the mixed corrugated packing has had the best performance in comparison with the other two packings and can perform acceptable in Bisotoun power plant. As, the Values of the cold water temperatures, the temperature difference between cold water and wet point temperature of the ambient and the coolness range the mixed corrugated packing is fully consistent with those gathered from the power plantís data. However, values of these parameters show considerable difference in two other packing with their counterparts in Bisotoun power plant, the water flow rate to air flow rate ratio in the mentioned packing shows a tiny difference with the actual value in the power plant which is 2.15 (1.4% increase). If this packing was used the amount of air used to cool down the water in the cooling tower which is prepared by each fan would be 521 m3/secs, which defers 5.4 % with that of Bisotoun, that is 551 m3/sec.
