Abstract

In the paper the authors present a computational model of a deep geothermal exchanger and the characteristics of a geothermal heat energy flux in a function of temperature, which changes with the depth of a geothermal heat exchanger. They are also going to present the characteristics in a function of temperature of water injected into the heat exchanger and a volume How of the water. When taking into consideration appropriate characteristics of heat receivers, the characteristics for one-hole systems allow one to chose the most effective system of winning the geothermal heat energy for the designed system of heat removal and winning the geothermal energy.
