There are three geothermal systems that are commonly used: dry steam, flash steam, and binary cycle[1]. What are the efficiencies of the plants from best to least efficient?

I did a moderate amount of research on all three systems, but the only thing that I found on Google is the efficiency of geothermal as a whole. I could not find anything regarding the the efficiency of each individual one.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to EarthScience.SE. Please clarify: did you do some initial research on your own on these three types of systems? $\endgroup$ – daniel.heydebreck Dec 14 '17 at 22:17

    $\begingroup$ Are you asking about the thermal efficiency of economical efficiency e.g. kWh/$ ? $\endgroup$ – Communisty Dec 15 '17 at 7:49

    $\begingroup$ This question is not about earth science. It's about a technology that utilizes geothermal energy and the efficiency of such technology. It is off topic here. It is more appropriate to SE Engineering. $\endgroup$ – Fred Dec 15 '17 at 7:59
  • $\begingroup$ It could happily be migrated to Sustainable Living or Engineering : @HypnosStratagem just flag it for mod attention, and ask for a migration $\endgroup$ – 410 gone Dec 15 '17 at 12:54
