  From November 5th to 16th, 2012, the Master 2 (class 2013) course "Geothermal energy_Part I" was taught by lectuerers from La Sapienza-CIRPS.

  A general introduction is as following:


  - Prof. Claudio Margottini (week 1)

  - Prof. Enrico Pandeli (week 2)


  Introductionto the Course:

  This Course provides: 1) A detailed view on themagmatic and geothermal fluids (chemistry, liquid / gas ratio , salinity, hardness, etc.) andgeothermometers; 2) Applications of geochemistry of the geothermal fluids; 3) Ageneral view on the different types of geothermal power plants and exchangers;4) A general view on EGS and UGS projects and combined systems (solar, biomass, wind, geothermal) in the World; 5)Use direct and indirect uses of geothermal fluids; 6) Practice and final reportabout the developing of a middle-high enthalpy geothermal field (from the fieldsurveys to the building up of the power plant)

  Course Aims:The aims of this Course are to:

  · Improve the knowledge of the geothermal fluids and of the different types of geothermal power plants and applications;

  · Increase skills in the design and development of medium and high enthalpy geothermal fields;

  Learning Outcomes:

  By the end of this Course students should have gained:

  · Knowledge and Understanding:

  · Intellectual Skills:

  · Professional Practice Skills

  · Transferable Skills: Course Book:

  · Prints of Pdf Presentations and bibliography
