Abstract: Exergy analysis gaining importance as an engineering analysis tool for energy systems. This paper explores the possibility of decreasing exergy reduction in thermal power plant components like boiler, turbine and condenser and thus increasing exergetic efficiency of Power plants by redesigning the existing design of some important components like platen super heater, final super heater, re heater, condenser, so that resource sustainability improves. The method suggested for exergy destruction in condenser is by using Heat pipes and application of heat pipes for steam condensation has been validated with experimental results.
Keywords: exergy / thermal / exergetic / heater / condenser / pipes / super / Power Plants
