Project: Air conditioning of a habitat by geothermal energy

This project is to determine a methodology for the design of an air conditioning system (heating and cooling) of a habitat by geothermal energy. This system must be technically feasible and reliable.
Thus, it comes to designing a thermodynamic machine which generates the cold from a closed cycle using a fluid and an absorbent material. The heat source is geothermal.

Objectives: The main objective is to master the techniques of air conditioning geothermal energy (heating and cooling) and make prototypes for experimental studies

  • Abstract: Algerian hot springs are very important and they are ranking in low enthalpy. The project includes geological work for updating the geological data around the hot springs, the map was the geothermal gradient and updating of chemical and isotopic analyzes of the main hot springs of (...)
