Title Simulation of Air-Cooled Organic Rankine Cycle Geothermal Power Plant Performance.
Publication Date Sep 2013
Media Count 93p
Personal Author D. S. Wendt G. L. Mines
Abstract This document describes simulations that were developed at the Idaho National Laboratory for the determination of plant design specifications and performance characteristic at both design and off-design ambient and resource conditions. The plant design simulation yields optimized design point operating conditions, equipment specifications, and net power output. When these equipment and design point specifications are imported to the plant rating simulation, the performance of the plant can be simulated for the specified ambient and resource conditions. Results from the plant rating simulations may be used to evaluate net power generation during a specified time period having defined ambient and resource conditions.
