Construction and application analysis of thermal conductivity model of deep thermal storage pore structure

In the process of geothermal energy exploitation and utilization, effective heat extraction, natural recovery and other key issues are affected and restricted by the thermal conductivity process of geothermal reservoirs, and the relevant thermal conductivity model research is not very comprehensive at present. In this paper, the deep heat storage in pore structure is divided into development zone, wave zone and original zone according to their thermal conductivity characteristics. Based on the Representative Elementary Volume description analysis method, the thermal conductivity analysis model of pore structure of deep heat storage is established, including simplified thermal conductivity model and fine thermal conductivity model. Taking granite as an example, numerical calculation was carried out to analyze the effects of porosity, impurity content, water content and channel composition coefficient on heat storage and thermal conductivity. The model established in this paper lays a foundation for controlling thermal storage and thermal conductivity mechanism, accurately analyzing thermal conductivity characteristics, reserve estimation and mining dynamic changes.
