How does a geothermal power plant generate electricity? What are the advantages and disadvantages of geothermal power?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The generation of electricity from a geothermal power plant and the advantages and disadvantages of geothermal power are to be explained

Concept Introduction:

Geothermal energy is generated from the hot interior of earth. In some geologically active areas, the heat from the Earth’s interior leaks out. This leaked heat energy can be utilized to produce steam by boiling water. The steam can then be used to turn a turbine and produce electricity.

Explanation of Solution

Geothermal energy is produced by the heat from the interior of the Earth. Natural heat leaks from the fissures of Earth in the volcanic and seismically active regions and artificially drilled holes expel heat that is sufficient to boil water and convert it into steam. This steamis then used to turn turbines to produce electricity...
