Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF GENERATING ELECTRICITY USING HEAT FROM WITHIN THE EARTH
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE PRODUCTION D'ÉLECTRICITÉ À L'AIDE DE LA CHALEUR INTERNE DE LA TERRE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for producing energy from a geothermal formation. A heat exchanger can be disposed within a well to absorb heat from a geothermal formation. The heat exchanger can be supported within the well using a high thermal conductivity material. The heat exchanger is connected to an organic Rankine cycle engine including a secondary heat exchanger and a turbine. The primary and secondary heat transfer fluids are chosen to maximize efficiency of the organic Rankine cycle.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de production d'énergie à partir d'une formation géothermique. Un échangeur de chaleur peut être disposé à l'intérieur d'un puits afin d'absorber la chaleur en provenance d'une formation géothermique. L'échangeur de chaleur peut être porté à l'intérieur du puits au moyen d'un matériau à haute conductivité thermique. L'échangeur de chaleur est relié à un moteur à cycle Rankine organique comprenant un échangeur de chaleur secondaire et une turbine. Les fluides de transfert de chaleur primaire et secondaire sont choisis pour optimiser l'efficacité du cycle Rankine organique.
