Now in its 3e, this single resource covers all aspects of the utilization of geothermal energy for power generation using fundamental scientific and engineering principles. Its practical emphasis is enhanced by the use of case studies from real plants that increase the reader's understanding of geothermal energy conversion and provide a unique compilation of hard-to-obtain data and experience. Important new chapters cover Hot Dry Rock, Enhanced Geothermal Systems, and Deep Hydrothermal Systems. New, international case studies provide practical, hands-on knowledge. 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 Includes pivotal updates on advances in Hot Dry Rock, Enhanced Geothermal Systems, and Deep Hydrothermal SystemsPrinciples, Applications, Case Studies and Environmental Impact, Third Edition Ronald DiPippo ... As an academic and a researcher, I looked for the basic principles that would guide the exploitation of geothermal energy. Beyond the fundamental geology, chemistry, and physics, much of what was needed turned out to be highly site-specific. ... but the applications will require innovative solutions to problems encountered all the way from exploration through drilling and plant design, anbsp;...
