Geothermal power plants use steam made from reservoirs of hot water identified a handful of miles or much more below the Earth’s surface to make electrical energy. The steam rotates a turbine that activates a generator, which produces electricity. There are 3 sorts of geothermal energy plants: dry steam, flash steam, and binary cycle.
That led me to produce what at some point became the Ecovillage Coaching Center. I took a permaculture course in ’95 with Peter Bane and Chuck Marsh and became an instructor there at our training center. I got involved with the early ecovillage movement. We started a newsletter named The Style Exchange for the Ecovillage Network of the Americas in the 90s and then I was invited to conferences in Scotland, Denmark, and Russia and became part of the founding group for the Worldwide Ecovillage Network which sooner or later spread to 20,000 villages about the world with more than 2 million residents these days.
The initially music video I created with my class, in 1989, was developed as a way to bring the textbook to life and to take the bottom of Bloom’s Taxonomy, Rote Memorization, and make it a joyful activity, realizing that the act of repetition worked much a lot greater when it was set to music. And movement. We also learned that in the method of rehearsing for a music video no one minded going more than the material once more and once more. We moved very easily up the levels, remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating and producing.
Turbines are offered with either back-stress (atmospheric) or condensing exhausts. Condensing systems are a lot more efficient but atmospheric exhaust turbine systems are easier and less costly. In a condensing program the condensate is normally reinjected into the ground, not necessarily into the aquifer. In an atmospheric system exhaust steam may be released to the atmosphere or used for other heating applications.
Frithjof is from TU Hamburg in Germany where he studied Mechanical Engineering with emphasis on power systems. Frithjof worked with Dave Meyer to make an experimental test rig for heat exchangers. The project involves measurement and manage systems for the test rig. The project seeks to test out new styles for geothermal and waste heat extractors and to begin with industrial capability in the design and style method.…
