GEOTHERMAL ENERGY POWER PLANT DIAGRAM
How a Geothermal Power Plant Works - Department of Energy
Geothermal power plants have much in common with traditional power-generating stations. They use many of the same components, including turbines, generators, transformers, and other standard power generating equipment. While there are three types of geothermal power plants, this animation shows a generic plant. View text version of animation.

Diagram of a geothermal power plant Through the fractures in the layers of rock, water and steam which has been heated in the depths, rise to the surface and are intercepted in the geothermal wells. The steam that is extracted is channelled into steam-pipelines, and forwarded to a turbine, where the kinetic energy of the steam is transformed into rotational mechanical power.

Below is a diagram of a geothermal power station. The diagram outlines the basic design of a dry steam power plant – one of the oldest designs dating back to the early 1900s. The simplicity of this design ensures dry steam power plants are highly efficient, even in today’s environment.
How Geothermal Energy Works | Union of Concerned Scientists
The future of geothermal energy. Geothermal energy has the potential to play a significant role in moving the United States (and other regions of the world) toward a cleaner, more sustainable energy system. It is one of the few renewable energy technologies that can supply continuous, baseload power.
