Chemical parameters of a power plant indicates the health of equipments and systems. Therefore primarily chemistry plays a major role in managing health of the power station, it also keeps record of heat inventory, investigating inefficiency, keeps the rotating equipment health in good condition, and monitoring environment pollution near the plant. This chapter has discussed on the vast impact of chemistry in the power generating process.
