INTRODUCTION

Electrostatic Precipitators of thermal power plants play a vital role in the O&M of power and cement plants. Due to the carbon based fuels, thermal plants are responsible for a large fraction of CO2 emissions, which is a concern regarding global warming. Emissions and dust may be reduced through more efficient and latest technology by the best O&M practices of ESP’s in thermal power plants. The high rate of failure of ESP’s in power plants especially in state utilities is a great concern, as they cause enormous loss both in terms of money, pollution problems and reputation. The maintenance practices followed is the need of the hour. It becomes necessary to get maximum production out of the existing capacity and the need to better management of existing equipment. This can be achieved by the best energy efficient practices of O&M and Improvement Skills on Performance of ESPs. ESCI has, therefore, thought it fit to conduct a 3 day programme on Best practices and Energy Efficiency in Operation & Maintenance in ESP’s with a view to provide a forum for exchange of information and sharing of experience & expertise among engineers involved in design, manufacturing, installation, O&M of power plant equipment. Such interaction should pave the way for speedy introduction of best practices in O&M of ESP’s and enhance availability and free from pollution, conservation of energy and reduction of the cost of generation.

INTRODUCTION

With the Indian economy growing year by year, the target of providing reliable power supply to consumers becoming increasingly important. To meet the challenge, new distribution substation are being added to, and distribution networks are continuously being strengthened. As you know, the Distribution Transformer is one of the most important and vital asset in a substation. Reliability and Availability of such assets a Distribution Transformer Plays an important role in the operation of a Substation. Emphasis needs to be laid on Testing, Commissioning and Protection of such assets for Long life as well as reliable operation. The review of protection philosophy further improves performance of the system. Apart from basic lapses during designing and manufacturing of equipments, the major causes of failures of equipment are the incorrect process and procedures followed during erection and commissioning. Forced tripping of transformers not only inconvenience to the customers but also revenue loss to Discom. We trust that this training programme would cover the existing knowledge gap on this subject and help practicing engineers in Distribution sector as well as consultants, students in the technical institution in enhancing their technical skills.

INTRODUCTION

Any industry with a complex process needs continuous monitoring and control of process variables to ensure the final product conforming to the required specifications. It may require sequencing of various process / repetitive operations in a particular order. Programmable logic controllers popularly known as PLC are highly helpful in this regard. When the process has large number of control loops breaking down to sub processes and each sub process having large number of drives to be controlled employing a Distributed Control System (DCS) would be essential. Most of complex process industries such as Chemical, Petrochemical industries and Power Generating Stations need clear understanding of the control loops and Distributed controls for achieving optimal performance.

INTRODUCTION

With the Indian economy growing year by year, the target of providing reliable power supply to consumers is being increasingly important. To meet this challenge new power station are being added and substation are continuously being strengthened. As you know, transformer and switchgear are the most important and vital asset in power system. Reliability and availability of such assets plays an important role in the operation of a power system. 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.) Switchgear is an important link in any power system network, including transmission and distribution systems. These days, increased emphasis is being given to condition monitoring of circuit breakers and high lights the role it plays along with associated systems, in power system network 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

Power utilities are concerned at the level of losses in their T&D networks and energy audit reports indicate rampant theft of energy as one of the reason for losses. Several steps have been initiated by utilities for curbing the theft of electrical energy. There is a need to review the existing laws & practices related to prosecution of offenders in such cases. To avoid legal implications and potential loopholes, strong need is felt to train inspecting officers in the associated techno-legal matters. This programme provides an overview of the legal aspects, including the filing of police cases for power thefts, prosecution of offenders in criminal courts, and case studies of experiences in trial courts etc. New technological developments in the area of tamper-proof, cost effective digital energy meters will allow effective metering.

INTRODUCTION:

Process Control and Automation is one of the most important operational activities in industrial sector and particularly in Power and Process Industry where uninterrupted operation is an essential requirement. Control systems for applications such as power plants, 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. Similarly, in the complex process industry like chemical, nuclear, pharmaceutical, petroleum, fertilizer industries ,,etc, which demand continuous and uninterrupted operations, process control and automation plays a vital role in meeting the challenge of achieving the changing customer-demands, higher safety and optimum capacity requirements for enhancing profitability and reputation of organization. One significant technological development providing solutions to the above is the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). PLCs offer the combined advantage of the latest computer based process control strategies and at a fraction of the cost of earlier computer based systems. PLCs which earlier were capable of performing only binary or logic associated on-off functions now have enhanced capabilities, such as performing advanced functions like PID control, motion control and math control, and have evolved into Programmable Automation Systems (PAS). PLCs can also control other PLCs in a cascaded mode giving rise to Distributed Control Systems (DCS). With additional computing capability and advanced functions, DCS has enabled very high flexibility and redundancy. The convergence of PLC/DCS technologies has made the dividing line between them thin. Further, together with operator friendly Human Machine Interfaces(HMI), PLC/DCS have made monitoring and operation of even large, complex power plants / process industry simple, through context- sensitive Operator Guidance Systems. This training program takes participants through functional requirements of control systems for power plants and process industry followed by various aspects of use of PLC/DCS controls including their components, input-output addressing/programming, wiring/functional allocation, HMI hyper-navigation and operation, trouble shooting with practical demonstrations.

INTRODUCTION:

Maintenance is a vital function in any power and process industry to keep plant running smoothly at optimal cost without break downs. Proper maintenance of plant equipment can significantly reduce the overall operating cost, while boosting the productivity and profitability of the organization. With the advent of technological advances, and a better understanding of the behaviour of materials and machines, different maintenance strategies have evolved with advanced techniques to monitor, measure and appropriately diagnose condition of critical plant machines. By giving “early indication of potential failure”, they provide relatively longer time intervals for corrective action. Maintenance entails financial consequences not only due to cost of material and labor for maintenance activities but also down-time of equipment and eventually loss of production/business opportunity. For Critical Equipments, it is essential to develop special methods of maintenance viz the combination of different maintenance strategies like corrective, preventative, predictive, condition-based, and risk-based maintenance techniques for improving maintenance quality and reducing operating costs. Further, Remaining-LifeAssessment (RLA) techniques enable rational and objective estimate of remaining life in critical parts of major plant equipment while advanced practices in engineering design have enabled refurbishment of critically aged plant system components wherever required. Also, reverse engineering and advances in design and material science have enabled LifeExtension and Performance Enhancement through modernisation of critical plant equipment. Based on these findings and a “Run-Repair-Replace Analysis”, the most appropriate techno-economic decision can be taken, for the benefit of all stakeholders.
