Accurate Geofluid Properties as key to Geothermal Process Optimisation

Project description

Better thermodynamic models to optimise operation of geothermal power plants

Rigorous thermodynamic models are crucial to understanding the properties of geological fluids. However, geothermal power plants lack high-precision models, which can be used to plan and test the efficiency of system operations. As a result, operators often resort to empirical in situ trials. The EU-funded GEOPRO project will produce experimental data on heat and mass transfer behaviour of high-concentration fluids in very high temperatures. Data will serve as input in a set of new design and operation tools that should allow the geothermal power plants to design and operate systems more effectively, reducing the levelised cost of energy to competitive levels.
