Abstract: The main aim of this work is to check the bio fouling in cooling tower and its effect on power generation. The way to reduce bio fouling is necessary issue within the thermal power station, as it results in reduction of the heat transfer rate and ultimately reduction in the power generation rate of plant. So as to attenuate the energy consumption in process plant equipped with device network. In various branches of chemical industries fouling builds up on heat transfer surfaces is a heat transfer equipment burning extra fuel to compensate for a reduced heat recovery accepting reduction of plant output due to periodic equipment cleaning and recovering the cost of cleaning interventions. Microbiological fouling can cause energy losses and loss of tower efficiency. The pilot plant is very useful in the thermal power plant to test the cooling water and then it is used in the thermal power plant to reduce the losses due to the bio fouling. In large power plant they having pilot plant with PLC system and microprocessor with highly accurate sensors. It will give very accurate and direct digital readings on screen.
