The most important thermodynamic considerations needed for a clear understanding of the operation of geothermal installations used for the production of electricity are presented. A brief description is given of the nature of a geothermal reservoir and the characteristics of the most practical systems for the conversion of geothermal energy into work are described. The appropriate specialized forms of the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics are derived and the related concepts of optimum available work, available work, entropy production, dissipated energy, and utilization factor are introduced. The shortcomings of the method of cycle analysis are discussed when applied to geothermal plants. Special attention is devoted to a detailed discussion of the most important general indicators that follow for the designer from a thermodynamic analysis. Various methods of graphically interpreting the concept of available work are described in detail and the importance of easily accessible, reliable formulations of the thermophysical properties of the pure substances, solutions, and mixtures that the designer needs for success are discussed.
