INTRODUCTION

Global warming, like the majority of crises around the world, is a controversial topic.Geothermal energy considerable public concern has been placed on pioneering the sustainable energy sources. The Bouillante geothermal is one project that claims to be able to bring enormous benefits to the local communities. The Bouillante project invests considerable funds through BRGM and the joint ventures. Bouillante 3 becomes such a significant part of the modeling geothermal reservoirs simulations.

This project has led to greater understanding of the heat and pressure gradient inside geothermal well. Therefore, void fraction correlation would derive an emphasis term to simulate the characteristic physical model of Bouillante geothermal reservoirs.

Figure 1. shows that the typical type of geothermal in term of temperature level

 

The aim of this study is to take an account in detail of theoretical background of two-phase flow and validate of simulation with saturation temperature and static temperature from void fraction correlation analysis examined.
