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 an 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 us with powerful tools to detect the onset of problems to take corrective action.

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
 
Power system in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth during the last few decades. Ad-hoc expansion of distribution network to meet the village electrification has resulted in high distribution system losses. Reduction of losses is an important agenda for any transmission and distribution companies.
OBJECTIVE
In order to identify the areas where power losses are relatively more in a transmission and distribution network, it is necessary to take-up energy audit as a first step. Based on this, an action plan for the reduction of losses in a phased manner can be prepared by the organizations. It is well known that the losses comprise of both commercial and technical losses and reduction of both types of losses will be dealt with in detail in this programme.

INTRODUCTION: 

With rapid development of urban power networks, ensuring the reliability of power supply and meeting the load demand in heavily populated cities has become a challenging task. Higher concentrated load in these areas demands higher quantum of power and the use of overhead transmission systems face serious challenges by way of right of way problems, safety considerations aesthetics having impact on the scenic beauty of the cities. This places a special demand on underground cables for providing reliable power supply. Technologies used in the manufacture of cables have also evolved from the paper insulated and PVC cables to the Present day XLPE cables which are regarded as far superior to the earlier generations. Presently under ground cables are available from 11 KV to 400 KV and selection of these cables requires suitable choice in the manufacture, laying, maintenance, and protection. As system strengthening works in urban areas are contemplated in a large way to bring down losses by way of erection of additional substations with cable networks under R-APDRP schemes. ESCI considered it appropriate to design a 4-day course on this subject.0

INTRODUCTION

After food security which is by and large, considered to be in place now, Energy Security is another crucial requirement for mankind to live with a sustainable quality of life. In Indian Context, our total installed capacity at the end of March 2017 stands at 319 GW out of which Coal and gas accounts for 68% and Hydel for 14%. Coal-based and Hydel based power generation is still a fundamental part of energy supply throughout the world. Reliability, security of supply, low fuel costs, and competitive cost of electricity make a good case for coal-fired steam power plants According to the 2017 edition of BP’s energy outlook, global energy demand will increase by around 30% to 2035, i.e. an average growth of 1.3% per year driven by increasing prosperity in developing countries, partially offset by rapid gains in energy efficiency. While non fossil fuels are expected to account for half the growth in energy supplies over the next 20 years, the outlook projects that oil & gas, together with coal will remain the main source of energy powering the world economy, accounting for around 75% of total energy supply by year 2035, as compared with 86% in the year 2015. Applying proven state-of-the-art technology while striving for cost-optimal efficiencies are key customer requirements in any new power plant project. This brings renewed focus on Electrical Generators (Alternators) whose susceptibility to failure is more than mechanical equipment. New technologies like Vacuum Pressure Insulation (VPI) has increased the reliability of Generator. Yet it is the most critical equipment in a power plant both in terms of capital cost as well as the time required to repair in case of downtime. Hence utmost care is required to be taken right from Design, manufacture and as well as transportation, Erection and commissioning.

INTRODUCTION

Solar Energy is a readily available source of the energy. It is also the most important of the non-conventional source of energy as it is non-polluting and therefore helps in the reduction of Green House Gases. The National Solar Mission aims at 20,000 MW solar energy by 2020. This would mean the installation of new solar energy capacity of 2000MW per year. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) New Delhi, India has formulated a programme to have Solar Energy in more than a million households in next few years. This has created a huge demand for technical manpower in a solar energy field. It is also necessary to have an interaction with the grid to evacuate the power generated and also meeting the Electricity Regulatory Commission guidelines. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI) a premier institution of training plans to conduct “Renewable Energy and Integration with grid”.

INTRODUCTION

Distribution franchisee model is a public-private partnership initiative that has emerged as a solution to the problems affecting the power distribution segment such as high AT&C losses, poor infrastructure, weak financial position and lack of customer orientation. The model has evolved as a means to break the vicious circle of low realization, low investments, low consumer satisfaction. Franchisee means a person authorized by a distribution licensee to distribute electricity on its behalf in a particular area within his area of supply. (Electricity Act 2003: clause 2; sub clause27).

The Electricity Act 2003 provides for the appointment of a distribution franchisee in a specified area within the region of supply of the licensee, for which no separate license is required from the regulator. A distribution franchisee acts as an intermediary between the distribution licensee and its consumers. The licensee provides exclusive sale rights to an agency, which is solely responsible for managing the power distribution business in a specified geographical area.

INTRODUCTION

For a hundred years, there has been no change in the basic structure of the electric power. Experiences have shown that the hierarchical, centrally–controlled grid of the twentieth century is ill-suited to the needs of the twenty-first century. To address the challenges of the existing power grid, the new concept of smart grid has emerged. The smart grid can be considered as a modern electric power grid infrastructure for enhanced efficiency and reliability through automated control, high power converters, modern communications infrastructure, sensing, and metering technologies and modern energy management techniques based on the optimization of demand, energy and network availability and so on. While current power systems are based on a solid information and communication infrastructure, the new smart grid needs a different and much more complex one, as its dimension is much larger.

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 the 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 a large number of control loops breaking down to subprocesses and each subprocess having a large number of drives to be controlled employing a Distributed Control System (DCS) would be essential. Most of the complex process industries such as Chemical, Petrochemical industries and Power Generating Stations need a clear understanding of the control loops and Distributed controls for achieving optimal performance.

INTRODUCTION

Valves constitute a very important class of hardware in the 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 uninterrupted operation of the plant and also to match simultaneously the power generation with the consumption demand at any given instant. Control valves and actuators together, play a vital role in ensuring accurate control of fluid flow and thereby controlling the generation of power as per demand. In the 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 the 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

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 the protection philosophy further improves the performance of the system. Apart from basic lapses during designing and manufacturing of equipment, 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

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 power 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 for 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 the 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 the 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.
