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 reasons 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 the prosecution of offenders in such cases. To avoid legal implications and potential loopholes, a 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

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 failures 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 the 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 the shortage of skilled personnel in maintenance has aggravated the situation. So it is time to train and retrain engineers in Condition Monitoring and Preventive maintenance techniques.

Introduction

Fluid pumping constitutes one of the most important activities of the process industry and power plant operations. Pumps, fans, and compressors are vital equipment that affects the transport of fluids for process requirements. There are different types of pumps in use in power plants depending upon the flow and head requirements. Centrifugal pumps are the most versatile pumping equipment that is widely used, while positive displacement pumps are preferred for pumping high viscous fluids and also where the head requirement is very high with small flow rates. In power plants, the role of pumps starts from pumping water from natural source like river/lake/pond through various purification units to DM water plant for further purification. Boiler-feed-water pump, a multistage centrifugal pump, constitutes vital equipment in a power plant that pressurizes and pushes water at high pressure into the boiler where water extracts heat energy from the burning fuel and then transporting heat energy in the form of steam from boiler to turbine to generate electric power. After the steam is exhausted into the condenser, it is condensed and then pumped by condensate-extraction pumps to transport the condensate water to the deaerator. Fuel oil pumps play a very important role of pumping fuel oil at controlled flow rates into the boiler furnaces for sustaining proper flame in the furnace. Cooling water pumps are another very critical class of pumping equipment in a power plant where they circulate cooling water from cooling towers to condensers and other auxiliary coolers continuously. Acid and alkali pumps are vital in the DM Water plant for transferring required quantities of acid and alkali for the regeneration of resin beds. This program takes the participants through various aspects of pumps including classification of pumps and their application

Introduction

Energy security constitutes the backbone of the country’s all-round development and quality of living. Thermal power plants continue to play a major role in total power generation in India. Safety is one of the most important requirements in any industry in general, and in thermal power plants, in particular, as they are required to operate flexibly and continuously balancing the power generation with consumption-demand at any instant. In thermal power plants, there are various types of safety hazards including fire, chemical, mechanical, electrical, thermal, and pollution issues etc. which pose a potential danger to safety of personnel, property and environment at large. These hazards can come from system/equipment failures due to poor design, faulty operations, human negligence and natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, lightning etc… It’s essential that the safety hazards in thermal power plants are properly addressed during the design stage itself, and required safety features are built-in. It is also essential that any unsafe situations arising during the O & M stage should be identified and adequate safety measures are incorporated. This program takes the participants through identification, prevention and mitigation of various safety hazards, like chemical safety arising from the handling and use of acids, alkali, Chlorine, Ammonia, Hydrazine, Hydrogen, Biocides, etc., Fire safety aspects, Electrical safety issues, Mechanical safety issues like coal handling and ash handling hazards, working at heights, use of proper slings for lifting of equipment, use of safety appliances, steam leaks, and associated burns, coal dust suppression, pollution hazards.

Introduction

Energy security forms the backbone of the country’s all-round development, and presently fossil fuels are contributing about 60% of total power generation in India while renewable energy sources like hydro, solar and wind together contribute about 35%. Environmental pollution is one of the most serious issues the world is facing today, and power generation through fossil fuels contributes its gigantic share to the pollution. In order to save the planet-Earth from the galloping pollution effects, it’s a well-established conclusion that power generation through fossil fuels is to be reduced and discouraged while renewable power should be mandatorily increased and encouraged. In this context, Govt. of India fixed up a stupendous target to achieve 175 GW of renewable power generation of which 100 GW to come from solar energy, within the next three years. One of the most important features of power generation is that since there are no big storage facilities for storing electric energy at present, the electric power generated should be continuously balanced with power consumption at any instant to ensure the supply of good quality power. In a given power demand scenario, as the eco-friendly renewable power generation increases, the polluting thermal power from fossil fuels should reduce its share. Unfortunately, the renewable energy sources viz. solar, hydro and wind are seasonal and not continuously available, the role of thermal power stations becomes much more critical in maintaining continuous power supply. The thermal power stations are required to run more flexibly to ramp up and ramp down the power generation in tandem with renewable generation and also consumption demand. This puts a lot of burden on thermal power stations to flexibilize the O&M activities which are to be re-established to meet the varying power ramping requirements. This program takes the participants through flexibilization of thermal power plants in terms of various aspects of power ramping requirements, challenges in achieving them, and their effects on thermal power station performance their residual life and case studies, etc.

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 a thorough knowledge of the procedures for alignment between the two rotating types of equipment 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 the latest technologies like SPM and Condition Monitoring will provide us powerful tools to detect the onset of problems to take corrective action.
