In steam power plants the power is generated using the heated steam within the turbine. The power is generated in mega watts. Steam is generated using Coal as a fossil fuel. Steam turbines operate at low efficiency. All the super heat energy in steam is converted into work leaves the Turbine with high available energy. As most part of the heat in steam is not recovered to improve the efficiency of the cycle, regenerative feed water heaters are provided which utilize the total steam energy (including later heat) of the bleed Steam. Energy audit plays an important role in identifying energy conservation opportunities in the industrial sector, while they do not provide the final answer to the problem; they do help to identify potential for energy conservation and induces the companies to concentrate their efforts in this area in a focused manner. An effort is made in this work for developing methodology of energy audit in thermal power plant on system based. The paper shows all the performance equation of component involves in the thermal power plant according to the system base. Condensers are cleaned with acid to remove scales and sludge to produce vacuum. This help the reduce the steam consumption in turbine. An analysis is carried out to calculate steam consumption in 4 turbine generators and cooling water flow in condenser this will enhance the efficiency of condenser.
