Description

Thermodynamic Analysis and Optimization of Geothermal Power Plants guides researchers and engineers on the analysis and optimization of geothermal power plants through conventional and innovative methods. Coverage encompasses the fundamentals, thermodynamic analysis, and optimization of geothermal power plants. Advanced thermodynamic analysis tools such as exergy analysis, thermoeconomic analysis, and several thermodynamic optimization methods are covered in depth for different configurations of geothermal power plants through case studies. Interdisciplinary research with relevant economic and environmental dimensions are addressed in many of the studies. Multiobjective optimization studies aimed at better efficiency, lower cost, and a lower environmental impact are also discussed in this book.

Key Features

  • Addresses the complexities of thermodynamic assessment in almost all operational plant configurations, including solar-geothermal and multigeneration power plants
  • Includes an exemplary range of case studies, from basic to integrated
  • Provides modern optimization methods including exergoeconomic, artificial neural networks, and multiobjective particle swarm
  • Covers environmental impact considerations and integration with renewable energy systems

Readership

Graduate and early career researchers in power engineering, particularly those working in thermodynamic optimization and on the development of next-generation geothermal power plants
