INTRODUCTION:

Coal continues to be the major source of energy for power generation. Nearly 60% of power generation capacity in India comes from coal. While the power generation capacity got trebled during the last three plan-periods, the domestic production of coal stagnated which resulted in a significant supply-demand gap in indigenous coal supplies. The inability of indigenous coal mines in the country to meet the coal requirements is forcing to go for coal imports. This necessitated the use of blended coal in power stations where indigenous coal & imported coal are blended and fired in the boilers. Since the coal qualities of indigenous and imported sources are much different, blending of such coals can have an adverse impact on boiler performance. Compatibility of coals used for blending needs to be ensured to avoid problems in boiler operation. This program takes the participants through impacts of coal characteristics, various methods of coal-blending, optimization of coal firing, infrastructure required, and operational experience of coal blending in power stations.

INTRODUCTION

In the deregulated market scenario wider power generation flexibility with respect to the past is needed; on the other hand, frequent changes of the operating conditions may reduce the life of the most critical components, such as steam heaters or turbine blades. Fatigue produced by cyclic thermal and/or mechanical stresses will also have an impact on the life of the plant. Evaluation of the impact of thermomechanical fatigue in coal power plant will have to be carried out to estimate its residual life. Then, this evaluation at the device level will be translated into a plant-level assessment. These results are helpful in order to optimize the plant operation over time, assess the components state, plan its production schedule, and forecast the expected performance degradation. The high rate of failure of power equipment in electric Generating Companies especially in State utilities is of grave concern, especially in a developing country like India. Why should these vital power equipment fail in such large numbers causing enormous loss to the electric utilities and companies both in terms of money and reputation? The maintenance practices followed in the organizations need some introspection. It becomes necessary to get maximum production out of existing capacity and to reduce the need to the minimum by better management of existing equipment. This can be achieved only through modern Condition Monitoring techniques (CMT) and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM). CBM programme helps in maintenance decision making based on the data collected through Condition Monitoring. ESCI is conducting a 5-day programme on “Condition Monitoring and Residual Life Assessment in Power Plants and Industries” with a view to expose O&M Engineers in Power stations to the philosophy of best maintenance practices and help these Engineers to reduce the rate of failure of power plant equipment and enhance availability.

INTRODUCTION

Control and Instrumentation is one of the most important operational activities in the industrial sector, particularly in the Power and Process Industry where an uninterrupted operation is an essential requirement. In power plants, control systems have to cater to specific challenges such as generation, distribution and consumption having to be simultaneous and matching and power generating units having to alter their electric power generation output as per load demand variations in a speedy and highly responsive manner, etc... Process automation plays a vital role in controlling the process parameters like temperature, pressure, liquid level, flow rate, voltage, current, frequency etc., and optimizing the power output from the operating station. This training program takes the participants through various basic and advanced control concepts used in power plants.

INTRODUCTION

The present electrical Power system has grown over many years. It is facing the challenges of the poor operational efficiency of utilities, deteriorating financial situations with mounting losses and increasing subsidy burden on state governments, power shortage and lack of investment, skewed tariff structure, a high gap between average cost of supply and average recovery, High AT&C losses etc. The govt. of India gave the states an opportunity to adopt power sector reforms and recommended the unbundling of the SEBS to improve their efficiency.GOI also introduced APDRP and R-APDRP, funding the utilities for taking up development programmes like the adoption of IT in various business models of utilities and strengthening the present networks.

INTRODUCTION

Thermal Power Generation contributes a major share of the total electricity generated in the country. In a thermal power plant, steam-water system and cooling water system constitute the most important energy transport media transporting heat energy from boiler to turbine to condenser and then to cooling tower and ultimately to the environment. Corrosion, scaling, fouling and erosion of components in these systems have a direct bearing on the plant availability, which in-turn impacts the plant load factor and efficiency of the power station. Hence maintenance of proper water chemistry plays a very vital role in this aspect. The performance evaluation reports of thermal power stations annually generated by CEA as well as data available at various thermal power stations highlight problems associated with corrosion and erosion in different components of power plants such as Boilers, Condensers, Deaerators, coal and ash handling plants, etc. There is still a large scope to increase the availability and output of the existing coal-based thermal power plants by reducing the downtime by maintaining proper chemistry in the streamwater system and cooling water system.

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. Operation of the transformer as per the standard parameters and maintenance of the transformer as per the scheduled timings and proceedings will give the transformer its full life leading to zero breakdowns.

INTRODUCTION

Electricity is essential for the economic development of a nation. The demand for electricity has grown manifold. With the advent of the Electricity Act of 2003 leading to Open Access of power, there has been an improved availability of quality power. With this, the country’s installed capacity of power generation has jumped by three times since the end of the year 2002. Thermal power stations continue to occupy a lion’s share of the installed capacity. Despite the growth in Renewable Energy Power capacity, especially Solar & Wind, Thermal Power Station continue to enjoy the status of baseload station though at a lower power factor. However, the evolution of energy market challenges Power Producers with new regulatory pressures and competitive realities. It is therefore imperative that power plant operators must optimize efficiency, flexibility, maintenance cycles and environmental performance. The market is shifting to Remote Monitoring & Diagnosis using the Information & Communication Technology to unlock the potential of increased productivity and efficiency across the entire power plant system.

INTRODUCTION

Metering, over the years, has played a very important role as means of revenue collection driven by the new imperatives in power generation, conservation,   utilization and tariff structures, etc. Metering is today emerging as a major subsystem within utilities operational framework. The driving force within metering is the rapid advances in metering technology, which today provides the tools to do things hitherto not possible in metering function. Metering today is not limited to revenue collection but entered into areas of load control, system planning, tariff structuring, reduction in T&D losses, etc. A system approach is, therefore, needed for metering to achieve these applications. A combination of state - of – art technologies in metering, information technology can provide an integrated solution to many problems faced by utilities. The advent of information technology helps in finding proper solutions to the management and interpretation of large masses of data. The static and digital energy meters representing a good solution for all the application when an increased accuracy is required.
