The purpose of this study is to find the heat transfer phenomena of CO2-EGS in the reservoir. The heat transfer model conjugated with the Brinkman model is used. This numerical model is validated by the experiment of supercritical CO2. The heat transfer coefficient of experiment is derived from the thermal resistance method of comparison between numerical model and experiment. Further, the heat transfer coefficients with different operating conditions are build in this study. This study will provide the better combination of operating conditions for the improved heat extraction.
