Abstract: Electric power is most inevitable one among the other sources of energy. It plays prime role in all developed and developing countries. More than eighty percentage of the electric power are generated from coal fired thermal power plants, in it the thermal energy available in coal is released by firing inside the boiler and transferred to water to generate the super-heated steam. All the released thermal energy inside the boiler cannot be transferred in to the water. Some percentage of heat energy gets lost to the environment without any beneficial uses. If the boiler maintains and operates in correct way, the losses can be minimized and efficiency can be improved. There are so many enablers to efficiently manage the boiler in both maintenance and operation point of view. By using ISM (Interpretive structural modeling) method, identified the relationships of enabler and they are weak in the interpretation of enabler links. To control this, TISM (Total interpretive structural modeling) is used in this paper and it is a modeling with qualitative technique. For the enablers of boiler system, this method is very useful for creating the performance model in structural form. In addition to this, the interaction between all elements of enablers can be easily identified by developed structural model of this methodology. If most important enablers which influence the efficiency of the boiler is concentrates is very easy to maintain designed efficiency of boiler. This work is narrated in this article.
