The aim of this work is to use the energy analysis based on the first law of thermodynamics to identify the locations and magnitudes of losses in order to maximise the performance of a 25 MW plant at Saukem Ltd., Porbandar to evaluate the overall plant, boiler, and turbine and subsystem efficiencies. Energy flows in a boiler have been shown in this paper. The boiler efficiency is calculated using indirect method after estimating the various heat losses in the boilers. From results the overall thermal efficiency of the plant by computing the individual efficiency of the boiler (79.4%), steam turbine (33.57%), and generator (98%) appears to be 26.2 %.
