Abstract

In this paper energy and exergy analysis method for thermal power plant and analysis carried out on 55 MW coal base thermal power plant of DCM – Shriram Ltd. In the present, increasing demand of power has made the power plants of scientific interest, but majority of the power plants are designed by the energetic performance criteria based on first law of thermodynamics only. The first law of thermodynamics does not give all the ideas about the useful energy loss because the difference between the quality and quantity cannot be justified by it. In the energy analysis we can presents only quantitative results while in exergy analysis one can presents qualitative results about actual energy consumption. In this analysis it is shown that exergy efficiency is less at each and every point of power plant’s component compare to energy efficiency. It also presents major losses of available energy at combustor, super heater, economizer and air-pre heater section. In this article it is also shown energy efficiency, exergy efficiency, exergy destruction and energy losses comparison charts.
