A Thermal power plant consist of various cycles and subsystems like air & flue gas cycle, main steam cycle , feed water & condensate water cycle , fuel & ash cycle, Equipment cooling water (ECW), auxiliary cooling water (ACW) system, Compressed air system ,Electrical auxiliary power & lighting system, HVAC system etc . In India , most thermal power plants employing sub critical technology are able to work only at 30 - 40 percent efficiency . The remaining 60 - 70 %is lost during generation, transmission and distribution out of which the predominant loss is in the form of heat . This paper demonstrates the major energy saving potential areas and methods to improve the overall efficiency of a thermal power plant .
