The thermodynamic basis for the design of geothermal power plants is at the heart of the book and readers are clearly guided on the process of designing and analysing the key types of geothermal energy conversion : Ronald DiPippo. Provides coverage of all aspects of the utilization of geothermal energy for power generation from fundamental scientific and engineering principles. International case studies from real plants provide a unique compilation of hard-to-obtain data and experience. Geothermal Power Plants: Principles, Applications and Case Studies is the latest book from Ron DiPippo, Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. It is a single resource on all aspects of the utilization of geothermal energy for electric power generation. Publisher Summary The single-flash steam plant is the mainstay of the geothermal power industry. It is often the first power plant installed at a newly developed liquid-dominated geothermal field.

Geothermal Power Plants, 4th Edition, presents state-of-the-art geothermal developments and experience of real applications for professionals, and a comprehensive reference for theory and practice.

"Geothermal Power Plants is a highly detailed book that seeks to provide an explanation to both the underlying principles and the technical challenges of power generation from geothermal resources I can see this book being very useful indeed for those actively working in the geothermal energy sector."/5(2). The thermodynamic basis for the design of geothermal power plants is at the heart of the book and readers are clearly guided on the process of designing and analysing the key types of geothermal /5(4). Geothermal power plants are used in order to generate electricity by the use of geothermal energy (the Earth's internal thermal energy).They essentially work the same as a coal or nuclear power plant, the main difference being the heat geothermal, the Earth's heat replaces the boiler of a coal plant or the reactor of a nuclear plant.
