Some equations to calculate temperature and pressure changes with time for a lumped-parameter reservoir model with water influx from an infinite aquifer are presented. The sensitivity study of the reservoir performance to V/Gp (reservoir volume/flow rate of discharge), V/B (reservoir volume/aquifer parameter) and ϕ (reservoir porosity) shows that V/Gp is much more influential than the others two, though the influences of these two have an increasing tendency as time passes.
