Abstract

A model-based system for real-time simulation and prediction of SC^ concentration around a Power Plant has been applied. The real-time simulation is done for 5 minutes average-time periods, from the measurements of nine meteorological towers and one Remtech sodar. A meteorological prediction model has been developed for providing a one-day forecast (for 30 minutes average-time periods), as input in time for the adaptive plume model. This system allows the prediction of SC>2 concentration around a power plant for different emission levels, along the following 24 hours. Both systems run continously on an area around As Pontes Power Plant, since November 1994. Their ground level concentration
