INTRODUCTION

The installed generating capacity in the Indian Power System is above 2,28,000 MW at present and new capacity is continuously added. In spite of such capacity addition, failure of electrical equipment cause wide spread damage, disorder and chaos. Enquiry committees are often appointed to enquire into the root causes of such occurrences. A quick glance through the findings of such committees make it amply clear that in majority of these cases the cause is identified as, “faulty manufacture”, or “Defective erection and commissioning”. Power system experts had always stressed the importance of systematic approach to the process of commissioning the power equipment, as it provides the last opportunity to detect defects and to take corrective steps. And yet, It is globally seen that full advantage of the “the last opportunity” is not taken. Hence all the causes elaborated above can be summarized as “commissioning Lapses”. The power system is expected to grow further in coming years to meet future demands. In order to build such magnitude of power system precise planning, proper erection and Commissioning would be required. In meeting these challenging tasks, it is required to have trained personnel in “Testing and Commissioning of Electrical Equipment in Power Utilities”.

INTRODUCTION

Over the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the use of Information Technology (IT) and new operational Technologies (OT) in the power sector in India. The increase in the use of IT in public sector Discoms has been driven primarily by R-APDRP. The greater use of OT has also been made possible by funding from various government programs. The private Discoms too have been implementing these technologies driven by the need to reduce their technical and commercial losses and improve performance levels Historically, IT and OT have occupied separate realms in the power sector. However, in order to realize their full potential, utilities need to integrate operational technologies such as Supervisory control and Data acquisition (SCADA), Distribution management system (DMS), Outage management system(OMS), and remote terminal units(RTU) with IT systems that support metering, analytics, customer information system, etc. This will lead to optimized business processes, better information for decision making, more effective network management and improved customer service. While IT-OT convergence is not entirely new, there are more business and technology reasons now than in the past, which are driving the integration of the two technologies.

INTRODUCTION

Valves constitute a very important class of hardware in industry, which are used for different purposes like controlling fluid-flow through control valves, isolating the flow through isolation valves, process-safety through safety relief valves etc. In power plants, the most essential requirement is to ensure un-interrupted operation of plant and also to match simultaneously the power generation with the consumption demand at any given instant. Control valves and actuators together, play vital role in ensuring accurate control of fluid flow and thereby controlling the generation of power as per demand. In process industry, accurate flow control is very critical for ensuring product quality while safety relief valves contribute a great deal to ensure plant safety and thereby to productivity. Different types of valves like control valves, isolation valves, check valves and pressure relief valves etc are available for different purposes of use in industry under different process conditions of temperature, pressure and dusty environments. Many such valves are operated automatically and remotely by using valve-actuators which are pneumatically/electrically driven, and mounted on the valves. Selection of proper valves and their actuators, and ensuring precision in their functional capabilities are of paramount importance. This program takes the participants through different types of valves and actuators, their construction details, operation features, repair and maintenance aspects etc. in power and process industry.

INTRODUCTION

Major losses involving large oil-cooled transformers continue to occur on a frequent basis. Increased equipment utilization, deferred capital expenditures and reduced maintenance expenses are all part of today’s strategies for transformer owners. To make matters worse, power consumption is increasing, and the load on each aging transformer continues to grow. The largest number of transformers failure occurred in the Utility Substation sector, but the highest among them is Generator Step Up transformers. If the extraordinary Business Interruption loss is ignored, the generator step-up transformer is still significantly higher than any other category. (This is to be expected due to the very large size of these transformers.) Severe and Unhealthy competition among manufacturers, coupled with anxiety of power utilities to hold the price line had led to lowering of quality in design and manufacturing by some people. The rapid expansion of power systems, and utilities unable to spare the transformers for maintenance and coupled with shortage of skilled personnel in maintenance has aggravated the situation. So it is time to train and retain engineers in Condition Monitoring and Preventive maintenance techniques.

INTRODUCTION

The Electricity Act 2003 which is in force with effect from 10th June 2003 provides flexible approach to reforms agenda of the sector and also incorporates the progressive provisions like Open Access, Trading in Power, Market Development etc. By identifying electricity trade as a distinct activity pursuant to regulations of Central Electricity Regulatory Commission, there is a paradigm shift in power sector. With coal reserves and hydro resources being scattered in various geographical locations and away from load centers, the emerging electricity markets offer new opportunities for trading of surplus power. Under the evolving market rules, it is being expected that bulk electricity will be traded through a variety of bilateral and multilateral contracts and through Power Exchanges (Px). Those buying and selling electricity through bilateral contracts are likely to include not only generators and suppliers but can be traders as well. With inter-state trading in electricity being considered as an independent and licensed activity, transactions in open access and the volume of power traded on interstate transmission system is steadily growing. Open access on Transmission and Distribution on payment of charges to the utility will enable number of players utilizing these capacities and transmit power from generators to the load centre. This will mean utilization of existing infrastructure and easing of power shortage. Trading now a licensed activity and regulated will also help in innovative pricing which will lead to competition resulting in lowering of bills. In this era of market development, it is important to understand key elements of sector such as Regional frequency trends, demand and supply profiles, Grid characteristics, Market structures, Commercial issues etc., besides the processes and procedures applicable to power trading, power exchanges etc.
