Performance Optimization of Steam Power Plant through Energy and Exergy Analysis
Pages : 285-289
This article aims to identify the magnitude, location and source of thermodynamic inefficiencies in thermal power plant. It is hoped that this examination as it includes both energy and exergy analysis will yield new insights in to the performance of steam power plant. Exergy analysis can be particularly effective in identifying ways to optimize the performance of existing operations and designing the plant while energy balance gives heat transfer between the system
and its surrounding.
Keywords: Exergy, Exergy efficiency, Energy losses, Exergy losses, irreversibility.
