Study Explores Design, Potential of Electric Submersible Generators
This paper explores electrical submersible generator design considerations, theoretical underpinnings, and potential future applications.
The electrical submersible generator (ESG) is a modern interpretation of an old idea. The ESG can generate electricity to meet surface power needs or feed directly into the grid to create a revenue stream under the proper injection conditions. In typical configurations, a standard centrifugal pump is used in combination with an induction motor operated in such a way for the mechanical work of the pump to be converted into electrical energy. The complete paper explores ESG design considerations, theoretical underpinnings, and potential applications.
What Is an ESG?
A generic geothermal power plant typically consists of production wells that can be either artesian or artificially lifted.
