As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
The development of high-temperature geothermal fields with supercritical conditions are emerging as a new hot topic in various parts of the world since a significantly higher power output seems feasible with less drilling required.
Featured article: Making use of geothermal brine in Indonesia: binary demonstration power plant Lahendong/Pangolombian
The thermal efficiency of one binary geothermal plant is significantly higher than that of a single-flash, yet in Indonesia, single-flash plants predominate. To help realize Indonesia's untapped potential, Frick et al. investigated the technical feasibility of binary plant integration. They have shown that by using an intermediate hot water and an intermediate cooling water cycle, it is possible to integrate a fully-automated binary plant with flexible operation into an existing, predominantly manually-operated geothermal field. With the addition of only this one efficient unit, the capacity of the field has increased from 120 kW to 400 kW, and simulations show that even more power generation is possible.
