ABSTRACT
A second law analysis is performed on the 55 MW unit of coal fired non-reheat thermal power plant to evaluate the plant and subsystem efficiency. The distribution of exergy losses in various plant components during the operating conditions (40 and 55 MW output) has been evaluated to pinpoint the location and magnitude of the process irreversibilities. The overall plant efficiency (First law) varies between 22.015% to 24.522% & Second law efficiency varies between 19.938% to 22.208%.
