INTRODUCTION

Power plants and process industry constitute a very important element of industry that contributes a great deal to the national GDP. Mechanical integrity of Structures, Systems and Components (SSCs) in power plants and process industry is of extreme concern due to the associated risks and consequences of loss of production and release of hazardous chemicals into public domain, in case of breach of integrity in such SSCs. In-service inspections at regular intervals play a vital role in order to monitor, assess the health of these plants. Risk Based Inspection (RBI) involves the planning of an inspection on the basis of the information obtained from a risk analysis of the equipment. The purpose of the risk analysis is to identify the potential degradation mechanisms and threats to the integrity of the equipment and to assess the consequences and risks of failure. Risk-evaluation involves the determination of a probability of failure (POF) combined with the consequence of failure (COF). The inspection plan can then target the high-risk equipment and be designed to detect potential degradation before fitness-for-service could be threatened. Examination methods include visual surveys and the raft of NDT techniques like RT, UT, ET, PT, VT, MT, Thermography and Metallography etc. designed to detect and size wall thinning and defects. The inspection action itself does not reduce the risk; however, it does reduce uncertainty and therefore allows more accurate quantification of the damage present in the component. In-service inspection not only brings out the present status of the plant equipment but also gives scope to assess the remaining life without failure. This programme takes the participants through important features of risk analysis procedures of various equipment-failures, determining the consequence-severity, followed by deciding the risk based inspection strategy. Modes of material degradation & failure mechanisms, material selection criteria, applicable regulatory requirements, management system for mechanical integrity program, application of NDE methods, case studies are covered.

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

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 present Electrical Power system has grown over many years. Electronic or intelligent components, Automation in the form of SCADA, IT for Metering, Billing& Collections, remote meter reading are introduced to improve operational easiness, better performance etc as well as to manage the growing consumer base. But the power sector continuously finds itself unable to meet the required demand. The SMART GRID is expected to help in realizing better management of power system operations with participation of all Stakeholders. The Smart Grid aims to modernize today’s grid which is aging, unreliable, susceptible & silent to all forms of disturbances The smart Grid concept offers several characteristics (I) Self healing and adaptive. (II) Distributed Generation (III) Interactive with consumers (IV) Optimized to make best use of resources and equipment (V) predictive rather than reactive.

INTRODUCTION

Energy is the most important component of a nation. Next, to poverty alleviation, energy security has been the foremost concern of successive Government of India. According to the 2017 edition of BP Oil & Gas Journal’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 the rapid gain 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 the year 2035, as compared with 86% in the year 2015. India is still dependent on oil imports despite great strides in oil exploration & crude production both through on-shore & off-shore oil wells. Indian imports are more than $100 billion dollars annually. This gives greater emphasis on oil exploration & production. The focus of this programme is on Land-based Rigs, its various systems function and best operation & maintenance practice. The focus is also to understand the significance and factors critical to efficient performance, ensuring maximum availability and reliability.

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 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.) Severe and Unhealthy competition among manufacturers, coupled with 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 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

Electrical Power constitutes a vital input for all sectors of growth viz agriculture, industry, transportation, etc., which contribute a great deal to the GDP of any nation. In a power plant generating electricity, high-pressure steam rotates the turbine which in turn drives a synchronous generator for generating electricity. Synchronous generators, therefore, play a critical role in converting mechanical energy to electricity. Any fault or failure in the generator trips the output and hence the entire power plant, with consequent loss of power supply into the grid. Uninterrupted operation of the generator is essential for continuous supply of electric power from the generating power station. Condition monitoring, vibration analysis, good operation & maintenance practices etc., are very important in avoiding unexpected breakdowns and thereby ensuring high availability factor of the power plants. This programme takes the participants through various aspects of the design of construction features of thermal, gas and Hydro Generators, best O&M practices, hosting of troubleshooting of generators with case studies.
