    Fig. 3.1. Combined-cycle geothermal and solar powered desalination. The system is powered by SE during daylight hours and by geothermal during night time and cloudy days. This combined cycle operation allows the geothermal heat source to be regenerated and allows less expensive collection wells to be drilled from [15]. There are three sorts of geothermal vitality frameworks; wet rock/water stream (WR), common dry steam, and hot dry rock (HDR). In a wet rock framework, warmth is removed from either

    competitive price Summary To solve water scarcity problem in the world, new technologies will be developed to decrease the cost of fresh water production and increase efficiency. In thermal desalination field, first with respect to the use of low-grade waste heat, various configurations of thermal desalination are investigated numerically. The new designs are compared with multi-effect distillation (MED) and recently proposed advanced MED schemes, namely boosted MED (BMED) and flash boosted MED (FBMED)
