Abstract: In this work, a model which derived from an equilibrium model was developed for the exergy analysis of a bagasse boiler. By comparison of model and experimental results, the reliability of the model was proved. Based on the model, the effect of the process irresponsibility, exergy efficiency, and exergy improvement potential of the boiler were analysed, and improvement measures were put forward.

Keywords: exergy analysis; bagasse; boiler; exergy destruction.
