Present work is a case study on sugar industry and economics is worked out for advanced cogeneration power system. By replacing low efficiency mill turbines with hydraulic drives and DC motors, cogeneration power increases in sugar mill to operate at high efficiency (65-70%). This replacement can aid increase of power to grid, resulting in additional revenue for sugar plant.
