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.

Geothermal fluids contain non-condensable gases (NCGs) at various amounts. NCGs flow to a conventional geothermal power plant (GPP) with steam phase and should be withdrawn from the condenser by a gas removal system to ...
