Abstract

Scaling and corrosion have presented problems in many geothermal systems. Dissolved materials in geothermal waters can exhibit aggressive corrosive properties or have the tendency to deposit large amounts of mineral scale. Evaporators of binary cycles are a very important part of the system and their indirect contact with geothermal fluid is one of the methods to overcome aggressive behavior of these fluids. The idea of this project was to use separated steam in an evaporator as a heat source for binary plant. In this research, the experiment was designed and results were collected, a model was developed and validated using experimental data. Energy and exergy efficiencies of the proposed plant was calculated to be 7.42% and 35.14%, respectively.
