Geophysical investigation of Jersey Valley geothermal field using magnetotelluric and gravity data, A
Jersey Valley in Nevada hosts a 15MW geothermal power plant that has been operating since late 2010. Unfortunately this power plant is unable to run at its design capacity due to problems injecting geofluids after their use in power generation. A number of elements are required for a geothermal system to be a viable site for power generation, for a given system a description of these elements commonly comes in the form of a conceptual model. Conceptual models provide a basis for understanding of the field and quantitative modelling. The inability to inject fluids suggests a misunderstanding of ...
