Amatrol’s Geothermal System Installation online training course moves from an introduction about geothermal energy to overall system performance evaluation. Learners begin with an introduction to geothermal heat pump systems and move rapidly into the concepts and components that make a geothermal system operate; these include closed-loop circuits, compressors, closed-loop circuits, compressors, condensers, evaporators, metering devices, refrigerants, suction line accumulators, receivers, dryers, moisture indicators, thermostats, controllers, blowers, heat-pump system start-up and operation, and overall system performance.

What is the Definition of Geothermal Energy?

The word geothermal is from the Greek wods geo (earth) and therme (heat). Therefore, geothermal energy is energy that comes from the heat inside the earth. Geothermal energy is present in the earth because of the heat generated at its core and the solar energy absorbed at its surface.

One form of geothermal energy is generated as heat at the earth’s core, which is about 6,4000 km (4,000 mi.) below the surface. The core temperature of the earth is typically estimated to be 3,000-5,000 degrees Celsius (5,4000-9,000 degrees Fahrenheit). Another form of geothermal energy is heat just below the earth’s surface that comes from absorbed solar energy. This heat causes the sub-surface temperature to remain in a constant range throughout the year, regardless of the weather on the surface. For example, across the United States, the earth’s temperature at about 3.5m below the surface has a range of about 3-22 degrees Celsius depending on the latitude.

Geothermal System Installation eLearning | Interactive, Engaging Multimedia

Amatrol’s extensive, thorough multimedia covers the basics of geothermal energy. This course allows learners to study about this ever-growing field and build knowledge across a broad spectrum of topics, including system start-up and operation to shut down and maintenance.
