It depends.  If this is for a planet with water and a reasonably dense atmosphere, in other words "Earth-like", it's fine.  The domes aren't typical, but the rest looks like a standard modern power plant, so I'd call it well done. 

For a planet without water, or other evaporable fluid, especially one with little or no atmosphere, a cooling tower wouldn't work.  There, you'd have to use radiators of some kind.  With an atmosphere but no water, non-evaporating cooling towers, basically radiators and fans, would be a good choice.  In a thin atmosphere or vacuum you'd have to use radiational cooling, with the heat being released as infrared or visible light.

If the planet is cold enough you might use "reverse geothermal" cooling, running the hot working fluid through cold rock to condense it.  Eventually the rock would heat up, but with good thermal conductivity and a large area for the heat exchanger that could work for many years.

i know  it wont do on planet without water or anything that can be used as coolant in this tower guys on other sita want power plant so i did one and shape of domes aren't typical but i think this shape let them withstand more presure, cos it can be used also for high presure fusion reaction or such thing

I thought I'd check and see what you've been doing .. and oh man, Milay you have been busy  really cool stuff, I like the thoughts and ideas you put into these. 

You really should think about trying to model something for video or computer games ... you're getting to where you could do it I think

It's space related, so why wouldn't this be the proper forum?

As for dimensions, I have no idea.  It could be an automated station, and relatively small, or it could have thousands of crew and be kilometers across.
