Abstract

This study aims to present a thermodynamic performance analysis of a biomass- assisted geothermal power plant integrated with desalination unit. Turkey is examined as a promising country for such system owing to the various geothermal sources. Energy and exergy analyses of each component of the system are carried out through applying first and second laws of thermodynamics in order to better understand the technical performance of the proposed system and to determine and assess possible process modifications to improve the plant efficiencies. Finally, the parametric study of the proposed system is performed by evaluating the effect of the various design parameters. The energy and exergy efficiencies of proposed system are computed to be 6.2% and 35.2%, respectively.
