Improved geothermal plant availability and turbine life by utilizing a new metering approach


Geothermal steam is close to saturation or even wet and contains NCGs and other unwanted substances. Compared to conventional power plants not only the geothermal turbine is facing different challenges but also the measurement of the geothermal steam. Get to know these challenges and learn about a new metering approach during this online seminar.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn the fundamentals of the geothermal power generation process
  • Understand the challenges of flow and quality (wetness) measurement of geothermal steam
  • Learn about the physical measurement principle for the online measurement of flow and steam wetness utilizing the PLR method.
  • See some typical examples of how theses systems are applied in the process
