5MW Raft River facility experience

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Raft River geothermal plant is a small binary cycle conversion system which uses isobutane as the working fluid. This plant uses a staged boiler concept to achieve better performance than could be obtained by a single boiler. The plant was designed to operate with a geothermal water inlet temperature of 143/sup 0/C (290/sup 0/F) and produce a nominal generator output of 5MW. The plant is supported by a supply and injection system consisting of three supply wells (about 1524m or 5000 ft deep) and two injection wells (about 1158m or 3800 ft deep). Experience in several important areas: environmental, ... continued below
