Performance and Exergy Analysis of the Boiler

Krishan Kumar [8] | Dharmendra Patel | Vinod Sehravat | Tarun Gupta


Abstract: Exergy analysis has sparked interest within the scientific community to require a more in-depth check up on the energy conversation devices and to develop new techniques to rise utilize the prevailing restricted resources. Exergy analysis gives entropy generation, irreversibility percentage exergy loss and second law efficiency. The exergy loss or irreversibility is maximum at boiler. Thus to know about actual flow of exergy in the cycle thermodynamic analysis based on second law is desirable. In this paper exergy analysis of operating condition of boiler has been carried out based on mass and exergy balance. The power plant boiler was simulated based on the measured operating data and the thermodynamic states of the plant components. . It has been found that maximum exergy destruction occurs due to combustion process. . Exergy efficiency of boiler according to second law analysis and the best exergetic efficiency of the boiler is seen when bituminous coal is used. Boiler exergy analysis, exergy efficiency and destruction, irreversibilitys


Keywords: Boiler exergy analysis, exergy efficiency and destruction, irreversibilitys
