Computer simulation of noncondensible gas behavior in geothermal power plants utilizing direct contact heat exchange. Report of work, February 1, 1980-February 28, 1981
Description: A computer model was developed to simulate the behavior of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide in a geothermal power plant using direct contact heat exchange with isobutane as a working fluid. This computer program was modified to simulate the particular equipment characteristics of the 500 kW direct contact pilot plant at East Mesa. Vapor and liquid compositions and temperatures can be calculated throughout the heat exchangers in the pilot plant. The program is now available for analysis of the pilot plant operation and for design of similar plants.
