The development of any country relates on capital energy consumption. The demand for power generation on the large scale is increasing day by day. Owing to their major contribution towards power production thermal plant shave vital role to play in the development of nation due to the scarcity of power, every power plant needs to be operated at maximum level of efficiency. The feed water heaters from a part of the regenerative system to increase the overall thermal efficiency of the plant In the
more » ... of the plant In the present world, that parameter which directly or indirectly influences the performance of a heater has been studied the factor such as inlet temperature ,saturation temperature, terminal tap difference, drain cool approach & Temperature raise are studied The data for the performance of a test and the subsequent calculations are collected from HP heaters of Unit 1 VTPS (Vijayawada Thermal Power Station)
