Sizing – Steam boilers run best almost wide open, so you don't want to size them for too much excess capacity. Expect them to run at 80 to 95 percent firing rate and size them accordingly. If you're thinking capacity might increase at some point, it's tempting to install one big boiler to handle that future need. That could be a mistake.
Steam Boiler Systems: What Every Project Engineer Should Know
your boiler options, consider the long-term economics (i.e., money saved or money spent over time). Make sure you understand that the decisions you make today will affect costs in the future. For the rest of this project, let's focus on steam boilers. Steam boiler system basics A steam boiler is used to heat water into steam, and the
fuel must be efficient so the boiler can generate for the maximum electrical power. By the time the steam cycle in the boiler, it also had heat losses through some parts and it effect on the efficiency of the boiler. This project will analyze about the parts losses and boiler efficiency to find the optimum cooling water flowrate. By using the

Boiler b. Steam Turbine c. Condenser d. Feed pump e. Economizer f. Pre-heater 3.1 Boiler: The purpose of the boiler is to convert water (pumped into it under pressure) to steam. The steam may emerge wet, dry saturated, or superheated depending on the boiler design. Thermal electrical power generation is one of the major methods.
