An important key in binary geothermal power plant is the selection of working fluid. This design decision has great implications for the operation of this power plant. While there are many options available for working fluids, there are also many restrictions on the selection that relate to the thermodynamic properties of fluids, as well as considerations of salt, safety and environmental impact.
