Название: Geothermal Power Plants: Principles, Applications, Case Studies and Environmental Impact
Автор: DiPippo R.
Geothermal Power Plants covers all aspects of the utilization of geothermal energy for power generation. Starting from fundamental scientific and engineering principles, it shows how to assess plant performance and guides readers on the optimal design of geothermal energy conversion systems. Its practical emphasis is enhanced by the use of case studies from real plants, which also provide a unique compilation of hard-to-obtain data and experience.
This revised and expanded second edition contains an important new chapter dealing with environmental impact, including gaseous and solid emissions; water, noise and thermal pollutions; land usage; disturbance of natural hydrothermal manifestations, habitats and vegetation; minimization of CO2 emissions; and environmental impact assessment. The book also includes a definitive worldwide compilation of geothermal power plants, unit by unit, and is supported by a concise primer on the applicable thermodynamics of geothermal energy conversion.
