Effect of non-condensable gases on geothermal power plant performance. Case study: Kızıldere Geothermal Power Plant-Turkey
MetadataShow full item record
Non-Condensable Gases (NCGs) are natural components of geothermal fluids, and they are a source of considerable capital and operating costs for power plants. The NCG content of geothermal steam varies over the world from almost zero to as much as 25% (wt). In this work, the influence of NCGs on the thermodynamic performance of geothermal power plants is analysed for various NCG content and turbine inlet temperatures. The results obtained can be useful on the feasibility study of single flash geothermal power plants. Depending on the NCG content of the field, the performance of the power plant can be determined roughly. © 2008, Inderscience Publishers.

Conventional geothermal power plants (GPP) differ from fossil-fuel power plants (FFPP) in many ways. The most specific ones are GPPs, are not cyclic plants and the working fluid is not pure steam. Geothermal steam contains ...
