Abstract:

"'Geothermal Power Plants: Principles, Applications and Case Studies' is a single resource on all aspects of the utilization of geothermal energy for electric power generation. Written by a respected authority in the field with decades of experience, it is written for those involved in any aspect of this growing industry. Grounded in basic scientific and engineering principles, its practical bias is enhanced by the use of actual case studies from historic and present-day plants, helping to increase understanding of the various elements involved in gaining access to, and making use of, this important energy resource."--Jacket.
