INTRODUCTION:

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

The Electricity Act 2003 which is in force with effect from 10th June 2003 provides flexible approach to reforms agenda of the sector and also incorporates the progressive provisions like Open Access, Trading in Power, Market Development etc. By identifying electricity trade as a distinct activity pursuant to regulations of Central Electricity Regulatory Commission, there is a paradigm shift in power sector. With coal reserves and hydro resources being scattered in various geographical locations and away from load centers, the emerging electricity markets offer new opportunities for trading of surplus power. Under the evolving market rules, it is being expected that bulk electricity will be traded through a variety of bilateral and multilateral contracts and through Power Exchanges (Px). Those buying and selling electricity through bilateral contracts are likely to include not only generators and suppliers but can be traders as well. With inter-state trading in electricity being considered as an independent and licensed activity, transactions in open access and the volume of power traded on interstate transmission system is steadily growing. In this era of market development, it is important to understand key elements of sector such as Regional frequency trends, demand and supply profiles, Grid characteristics, Market structures, Commercial issues etc., besides the processes and procedures applicable to power trading, power exchanges etc.

INTRODUCTION

“Supercritical” is a thermodynamic expression describing the state of a substance where there is no clear a pressure above 22.1MPa. (Mega Pascal). Up to an operating pressure of around 19 MPa in the evaporator part of the boiler, the cycle is sub-critical. This means, that there is a non-homogeneous mixture of water and steam in the evaporator part of the boiler. In this case, a drum-type boiler is used because the steam needs to be separated from water in the drum of the boiler before it is superheated and led into the turbine. Above an operating pressure of 22.1 MPa in the evaporator part of the boiler, the cycle is supercritical. The cycle medium is a singlephase fluid with homogeneous properties and there is no need to separate steam from water in a drum. Once through boilers are therefore used in supercritical cycles. Supercritical technology has evolved over the part 30 years. Advancements in metallurgy and design concepts have made supercritical technology units extremely reliable and highly efficient. Modern supercritical technology is largely available in Japan and Europe for Boilers & Turbines ranging upto 1000 MW. India is also making a dent in this field. This era is witnessing a trend in installation of 660/800 MW units in India with Supercritical technology to gain from the efficiency improvement associated with pollution abatement in energy conversion process with ultimate aim to phase out its sub-critical units in future. Supercritical steam conditions improve the turbine cycle heat rate significantly over subcritical steam conditions. The extent of improvement depends on the main steam and reheats steam temperature for the given supercritical pressure. A typical supercritical cycle having turbine throttle pressure of 242 bar with temperatures for main steam and reheat steam as 5650C and 5930C respectively, will improve station heat rate by more than 5%. This results in fuel savings to the extent of 5%. Overall supercritical power plant efficiency of 42% is achievable with current supercritical parameters. As coal based power projects are expected to be main stay of Indian power sector in future. In its constant pursuit to serve as bridge between the industries and the academician / professionals, ESCI (Hyderabad) is organizing a three day training programme on “Best Practices in O&M of Super Critical Thermal Plants” to sensitize power sector professional, with an in-depth knowledge in this cutting edge technology.

INTRODUCTION 

Power Plants and Process Industry constitute an important element of industrial sector that contributes a great deal to the national GDP. Management of physical assets particularly those of capital intensive ones such as power plants and process industry, plays a vital role in deciding their safe operation, business performance, profitability, and ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, etc. Further, the management of non-physical assets such as sustenance of brand value, reputation, assurance of customer delight through technical excellence etc. need to be taken care of since these can also significantly influence organisational performance outcomes positively and negatively. The entire framework of processes and sets of activities in power plants and process industry, which ensure operational effectiveness, efficiency, safety and elimination / minimisation of risks associated with the assets not only when they are new but also throughout the various stages of their life cycle is called Asset Integrity. Asset integrity is influenced through the entire life-cycle activities such as appropriate design, engineering, procurement, installation, commissioning, workforce training-development-retention, supplier development and partnering, operation, maintenance, remnant life analyses, refurbishment, life extension and disposal. The Asset Integrity Management Plan provides a structured method of translating overall organisational strategic objectives into their achievement in alignment with the requirements of Asset Integrity. The recently introduced ISO 55001 Standard For Asset Integrity Management (AIM) provides a structured approach for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to Asset Integrity and the introduction, reinforcement and continuous improvement of Asset Integrity Management Plans and related processes, through periodic audits by certified independent third party agencies.
