Device for Simulation of Transfer Low Potential Geothermal Heat with Heat Pipe and with Forced Circulation of Heat Carrier
This article describes the acquisition of low potential of geothermal energy with vertical ground heat exchangers. This system will be part of the device (simulator) for the transport of low-potential heat. This facility will include U-tube with forced circulation and heat pipes, through which the phase transition in evaporating and condensing section of the tube at temperatures below 0° C will receive low potential energy. The device thus allows the development of research activities in the verified production technology heat pipe suitable for the use of lowpotential heat of the earth in a laboratory environment. The content of the paper is the structural design of these devices. The role of the individual components of the device is to allow research thermo-kinetic parameters of transport of heat from the rocks to heat the carrier to transport simulator for low-potential heat. The device allows the physical modeling of heat flow from the rock into the heat transfer fluid.
