Overview of the Heat Cycle Research project

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Heat Cycle Research project is developing the technology base that will permit a much greater utilization of the moderate- temperature, liquid-dominated geothermal resources, particularly for the generation of electrical power. The emphasis in the project has been the improvement of the performance of binary power cycles. The investigations have been examining concepts projected to improve the brine utilization by 20% relative to a Heber-type'' binary plant; these investigations are nearing completion. Preparations are currently underway in the project to conduct field investigations of the condensation behavior of supersaturated turbine expansions. These investigations will evaluate whether the projected additional 8% ... continued below

Description

The Heat Cycle Research project is developing the technology base that will permit a much greater utilization of the moderate- temperature, liquid-dominated geothermal resources, particularly for the generation of electrical power. The emphasis in the project has been the improvement of the performance of binary power cycles. The investigations have been examining concepts projected to improve the brine utilization by 20% relative to a Heber-type'' binary plant; these investigations are nearing completion. Preparations are currently underway in the project to conduct field investigations of the condensation behavior of supersaturated turbine expansions. These investigations will evaluate whether the projected additional 8% to 10% improvement in brine utilization can be realized by allowing these expansions. Analytical studies of an ideal'' cycle's performance have shown that the concepts under project investigation, are approaching the practical limits of performance. Future program efforts will focus on the problems associated with heat rejection and on the transfer of the technology being developed to industry. 10 refs., 6 figs.
