Thank you for the file and first I want to say that your simulation
is very well put together. You avoided a lot of the pitfalls and traps
that are common sources of errors! Well done.
I had a look at your simulation and found that during those few
periods of the year when the water is coming out of the tower slightly
hotter than it goes in are just because the ambient temperature and RH
are so high at those times that the tower can't do any cooling. The way
that a closed circuit tower works is that water is sprayed over the
tubes that contain the water that is being cooled. As water evaporates
off the tubes, it cools the tubes and thus the water in them. If it gets
too hot and humid out, however, there isn't much evaporation off the
tubes and consequently there isn't any cooling.
