Welcome to our Power Station by the Ducky Squad

How Geothermal Power Stations Work

First the steam that comes out of the selected geothermal hot spot gets transferred through the metal pipes to the power station.

Next the steam turns the turbine. After that the turbine turns the generator which makes power and the power is sent through the power lines. Eventually the steam gets transferred to a cooling tank and cools down.

Lastly the steam turns into water and gets sent back into another geothermal hot spot.

Design considerations

We used tin foil to make the steam pipes to show that the stream travels from inside the ground to the geothermal power station. We used the 3 black computer fans to represent the turbines. This then sends power to the generator which are the metal rectangular prisms which are from a computer's motherboard. This then is turned into electricity.


The stream is cooled down and goes to the steel fan mounted which is the cooling tank. From here the steam is turned into water and treated before being returned to the ground. This is represented by the pump.

We created a simple electrical circuit to show the power moving to the town using copper tape and LED lights.
