INTRODUCTION

The high rate of failure of transformers in electric utilities may perhaps be described as one of the tragedies of the power sector in developing countries like India. Failure of these simple, static, silent and efficient pieces of electrical equipment in such large numbers cause great loss to the electric utilities both in terms of money and reputation. A large number of manufacturing units have come up in the country without adequate design and testing capabilities. Maintenance practices followed in the organizations also need improvement. Severe and unhealthy competition among manufacturers, coupled with the anxiety of the Power Utilities to hold the price line had led to lowering of quality in design and manufacture. In advanced countries, the price line remains at a reasonable level and quality is very good because of the continuous improvements made in design, materials and manufacturing techniques. The rapid expansion of power systems both in urban and rural areas coupled with the quality of transformers has been imposing a great burden on the operation and maintenance wings of power utilities.

INTRODUCTION Installation of heavy machinery such as turbo generator sets, vertical hydro units in power plants, rotary compressors or other heavy rotating machinery with induction motors in the industry requires diligent alignment of the drive and driven machinery as otherwise it would result in undesirable stresses and heavy vibrations and shortens the life of the equipment. Similarly unbalance of a rotating machine also produces undesirable vibrations and premature failures. So it is necessary to have thorough knowledge of the procedures for alignment between the two rotating equipments by proper setting of foundations, aligning the shafts by leveling of bearings to ensure trouble free running with high reliability. Vibration analysis is a process of looking for anomalies and monitoring change from the established vibration signature of a system. The vibration of any object in motion is characterized by variations of amplitude, intensity, phase and frequency. These can correlate to physical phenomena, making it possible to use vibration data to gain insights into the health of equipment.

Vibration analysis can be used to:

 Find a developing problem that can be repaired to increase machine lifetime

 Detect and monitor a chronic problem that cannot be repaired and will only get worse

 Establish acceptance testing criteria to ensure that installation/repairs are properly conducted

 24/7 continuous vibration monitoring can be used to predict failures as part of a predictive maintenance program.

Vibration measurements through latest technologies like SPM and Condition Monitoring will provide  powerful tools to detect the onset of problems to take corrective action.

INTRODUCTION:

Demineralized Water (DM Water) constitutes a vital process fluid in power plants and process industry. While DM Water is used as an energy transfer medium in the form of steam n power plants, it is extensively used as an important process fluid in a various process industry. Every steam-based power plant and process plant typically set up a dedicated DM Water Plant which supplies DM water of required quality & quantity. DM Water is produced majorly through ion-exchange process which removes most of the cations (Na+ , X+ , Ca++ , Mg++ , Fe++, Mn ++ …. etc.) and anions (Cl − , NO3 - , SO4 −− , CO3 −− , HCO3 − ) from water, which otherwise contribute significantly to scaling corrosion, fouling of equipments. Quality of DM Water is, therefore, crucial for proper functioning of power plants & process industry as any impurity ingress into DM Water will adversely affect the plant performance and also the equipment life in long run. Proper operation & maintenance of DM Water Plants, therefore, contributes a great deal to the overall functioning of power plants and process industry that adopt DM Water Plants. This programme takes the participants through various aspects of DM Water Plants, water chemistry including pre-treatment steps, principles of ion-exchange, design & selection of ion-exchange resins (WAC, SAC, WBA, SBA) regeneration aspects, mixed ion-exchange beds, failing of resins and their treatment remedies, …. etc. The programme also describes issues & challenges, remedies and the best practices followed in O&M of DM Water Plants serviced in power plants and process industry.

INTRODUCTION

Thermal power plants continue to contribute a great deal of about 60% to 65% of total electricity generation in India, which forms the backbone of economy and quality of life. There are number of environmental issues and challenges connected to thermal power plants including pollution of air, land and water, and thermal pollution, acid rain, green house effects, all associated with severe impacts on environment and therefore health hazards to population, and flora and fauna. Thermal power plants also generate huge quantity of solid waste in the form of ash which, if not handled properly, constitutes a potential source of environmental pollution. Ash handling and 100% ash utilization is a challenge to the generating station. As the air pollutants namely CO2, SO2, NOX, SPM, Acid rain, Heavy metals etc. emitted by power plants, have tremendous impacts on human health and flora and fauna, it is essential that their concentrations in stack-outlets are to be controlled. The adverse effect of emission of CO2 is the Green House Effect which has long term serious impact on environment. Govt. of India stipulated stricter norms for controlling the emissions from thermal power plants. While the environmental pollution remains a bigger issue concerning people’s health & long term green house effects, compliance of new norms of pollution from power plants, remains as an equally big challenge for power plants to reduce pollution. There are proven methods of controlling pollution from power plants through use of supercritical and ultra supercritical power plants, use of coal washeries, ultra efficient ESPs, Fabric Filters, Flue Gas Desulphurisers, CO2 sequesters,.etc. which can be used to reduce emissions in power plants. However, though the new technology for controlling the emissions is available, very high cost of such equipments and space constraints to install such equipments in the existing power plants are posing challenges to the owners of existing thermal power plants. Thermal power plants are the biggest water consuming industry making water-issue as another challenge to itself. In the light of acute water shortage, Govt. of India stipulates stricter norms to reduce specific water use and also zero liquid discharge in thermal power plants, which remains as a challenge for compliance. This program takes the participants through various environmental issues of Thermal Power Plants and challenges including environmental pollution and pollution control strategies, new environmental norms, and difficulties in implementing the norms and also some case studies.
