The purpose of this study is to obtain the optimal operating condition in order to find the maximum supercritical CO2 heat extraction in the enhanced geothermal system (EGS). In this study, the heat transfer model conjugated with the Brinkman model is used to evaluate the thermal behavior in the reservoir of the EGS. This numerical model is validated by experiment. Optimization is processed based on the Nelder-Mead approach. The optimal operating conditions are proposed with different pressure, porosity. This study will build the optimal platform of heat source of geothermal power plant.
