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

Initially, equipment failure was considered undesirable and therefore the sole objective of maintenance was to “preserve” equipment. This blind approach led to many other problems, such as being too conservative in operation and maintenance actions, assuming all failures are to be avoided, or carrying out maintenance activities simply because there was an opportunity to do so. Maintenance is considered as an activity carried out on equipment on its breakdown or to ensure its reliability to perform its functions. It is generally accepted as a necessary task. However, it also entails financial consequences arising not only due to the cost of material & labour for the maintenance activities, but also downtime of equipment, connected plant and most of all due to the eventual loss of production/business opportunity. Ineffective maintenance may also lead to undesirable consequences such as the organisation’s inability to meet committed targets, penalties, loss of reputation, erosion of brand value etc. Technological advances in several inter-related disciplines, such as FMECA (Failure Modes and Effects Criticality Analysis), Condition Monitoring and Condition Based Maintenance, have given rise to a number of new techniques to monitor, measure and appropriately diagnose the condition of critical plant machines which may not be running as well as they should. By giving “an early indication of potential failure”, they enable appropriate corrective action to be taken well in advance, thus avoiding equipment damage, downtime and also significantly reducing maintenance costs. Pooling in the collective expertise and experience of multiple experts in maintenance as well as several other inter-related disciplines, the relatively new maintenance approach for individual critical equipment known as “Reliability Centred Maintenance” is now gaining increasing applicability. The focus here is not on merely preserving equipment but on clearly understanding the expected functions of the equipment and preserving and ensuring the performance of such functions, in the most reliable and cost-effective manner.

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.

INTRODUCTION

Over the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the use of Information Technology (IT) and new operational Technologies (OT) in the power sector in India. The increase in the use of IT in public sector Discoms has been driven primarily by R-APDRP. The greater use of OT has also been made possible by funding from various government programs. The private Discoms too have been implementing these technologies driven by the need to reduce their technical and commercial losses and improve performance levels Historically, IT and OT have occupied separate realms in the power sector. However, in order to realize their full potential, utilities need to integrate operational technologies such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Distribution management system (DMS), Outage management system (OMS), and remote terminal units(RTU) with IT systems that support metering, analytics, customer information system, etc. This will lead to optimized business processes, better information for decision making, more effective network management and improved customer service. While IT-OT convergence is not entirely new, there are more business and technology reasons now than in the past, which is driving the integration of the two technologies..

INTRODUCTION

In modern times, high voltages are used for a wide variety of applications covering the power system and research laboratories. Such applications have come essentially to sustain modern civilization. For transmission of a large bulk of power over long distances, high voltages are indispensable. For achieving reliability and economy, knowledge of the causes of deterioration is essential and testing of equipment proves the standards followed and maintained throughout the life cycle. In recent times the expansion of power system has been very rapid leading to complex systems with associated problems. Use of modern technology and sophisticated equipment added its own dimension to the specialized nature of the work. The Testing and Commissioning engineers in different power utilities are following different procedures, whose performance lies to a major extent the performance of the power utilities themselves. The field engineers are generally bogged with commercial activities and this necessitated the specialized group to take care of “HV Testing and Commissioning”. There was need to conduct to a training programme for the benefit of all power engineers so that they can gear up to take up works of this nature without any difference. Accordingly, ESCI brought out the “High Voltage Testing of Power Equipments” Training Programme.

INTRODUCTION

Electricity is essential in 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 the 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

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

India is on the threshold of high economic growth and the continuous initiatives in the infrastructure sector including power are driving it on a higher growth trajectory. India has seen a phenomenal growth in the installed capacity, and EHV substations played a dominant role in controlling, monitoring and protecting the power transmission over long distances. With the introduction of Sub-Station Automation System (SAS) with digital electronics, we have jumped to new standards in communications and IEC 61850 (communication in networks) is the front-runner in place of old control cables and electromechanical relays. Under the scenario, Renovation and Modernisation of old substations assumes significance as a faster and cost-effective option to bridge the demand-supply gap.

INTRODUCTION:

Process industries and power generation industry needs large amounts of motive power for different applications. These drives need to be rugged and energy efficient to provide the needed reliability of service. Induction motors typically meet the heavy-duty needs of the industry in a very effective manner. To ensure that these motors operate effectively, the health of the motors needs to be verified through condition monitoring techniques to avoid interruptions. Condition Monitoring of motors is a must for economical and reliable plant operation. Variable speed drives are another class or drives required for an industrial application. While central station generators in power plants are chosen based on grid requirements, there are many generators working for standby/captive generation as a part of the co-generation plant in large process industries. Reliable operation of these units becomes critical to the process.

INTRODUCTION

It is pertinent to mention that earthing plays an important role in proper operation of generation, transmission and distribution systems. The functions of earthing in an electric power system is to maintain the potential of current carrying as well as noncurrent carrying parts of equipment, apparatus and appliances connected to the system, and ensure safety of equipment and personnel and correct operation of protective devices during earth faults. Earthing also provides safety during lighting strikes on equipments or structures and on occurrence of induced voltage and current on electric equipments of an electric system. More over proper earthing system provides easy and shortest path to the flow of earth fault current without adversely affecting the continuity of service.

INTRODUCTION:

Process Control and Automation is one of the most important operational activities in the industrial sector and particularly in the Power and Process Industry where an 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.
