The possibility of using a water-ammonia working medium for developing the unified equipment for geothermal power plants that use thermal water at various temperatures is investigated. We managed to obtain stable parameters for the turbine over a range of thermal water temperatures from 100 to 20O°C through changing the concentration of ammonia in the working medium and recovering the heat of the waste steam; this is four times as large as the range of temperatures for power plants that operate on individual working media with a low boiling temperature.
