INTRODUCTION

Thermal power plants continue to contribute a great deal of about 60% to 65% of total electricity generation in India, which forms the backbone of economy and quality of life. There are number of environmental issues and challenges connected to thermal power plants including pollution of air, land and water, and thermal pollution, acid rain, green house effects, all associated with severe impacts on environment and therefore health hazards to population, and flora and fauna. Thermal power plants also generate huge quantity of solid waste in the form of ash which, if not handled properly, constitutes a potential source of environmental pollution. Ash handling and 100% ash utilization is a challenge to the generating station. As the air pollutants namely CO2, SO2, NOX, SPM, Acid rain, Heavy metals etc. emitted by power plants, have tremendous impacts on human health and flora and fauna, it is essential that their concentrations in stack-outlets are to be controlled. The adverse effect of emission of CO2 is the Green House Effect which has long term serious impact on environment. Govt. of India stipulated stricter norms for controlling the emissions from thermal power plants. While the environmental pollution remains a bigger issue concerning people’s health & long term green house effects, compliance of new norms of pollution from power plants, remains as an equally big challenge for power plants to reduce pollution. There are proven methods of controlling pollution from power plants through use of supercritical and ultra supercritical power plants, use of coal washeries, ultra efficient ESPs, Fabric Filters, Flue Gas Desulphurisers, CO2 sequesters,.etc. which can be used to reduce emissions in power plants. However, though the new technology for controlling the emissions is available, very high cost of such equipments and space constraints to install such equipments in the existing power plants are posing challenges to the owners of existing thermal power plants. Thermal power plants are the biggest water consuming industry making water-issue as another challenge to itself. In the light of acute water shortage, Govt. of India stipulates stricter norms to reduce specific water use and also zero liquid discharge in thermal power plants, which remains as a challenge for compliance. This program takes the participants through various environmental issues of Thermal Power Plants and challenges including environmental pollution and pollution control strategies, new environmental norms, and difficulties in implementing the norms and also some case studies.

INTRODUCTION

It is pertinent to mention that earthing plays an important role in the 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 the safety of equipment and personnel and correct operation of protective devices during earth faults. Earthing also provides safety during lighting strikes on equipment or structures and on the occurrence of induced voltage and current on electric equipment of an electric system. Moreover, the proper earthing system provides the 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 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 the uninterrupted 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 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

Thermal Power Plants contribute a great deal of about 60-65% of total electricity generation in India, which forms the backbone of economy and quality of life. Coal continues to stay as a major player in power generation, and hence a very large quantity of coal is required to be handled not only at coal mines and also at generation stations. Coal handling at thermal power plant begins at coal yard where coal is received from coal supplier. Coal handling which forms the lifeline for the continuous and smooth operation of the power plant, includes stacking of coal, conveying coal from coal yard to crushers and pulverizers through conveyors, pulverizing of coal, and feeding of coal powder into the boiler. Any stoppage in coal movement within power plant will adversely affect the power plant operation. Most of the constraints leading to low PLF in coal-based thermal power plants, are due to either nonavailability of coal or problems in coal handling & pulverizing systems. Indian coal contains a large proportion of ash content (35 - 50%) which constitutes one of the major pollutants emitted by thermal power plants. Ash handling is another critical activity in power plant operations which, if not done properly, creates a hell of a lot of problems in the plant including pollution of the environment, and also affects plant operations. Continuous disposal of ash from the power plant is very crucial for ensuring continuous operation of the power plant. Part of ash is disposed of in the form of slurry into ash pond while a major portion of fly-ash is required to be transported for other uses. This program takes the participants through various problems faced and best practices to be followed in coal handling and ash handling areas including ash disposal methods in thermal power plants.

INTRODUCTION

The high rate of failure of transformers in electric utilities may perhaps be described as one of the tragedies of the power sector in developing countries like India. Failure of these simple, static, silent and efficient pieces of electrical equipment in such large numbers cause great loss to the electric utilities both in terms of money and reputation. A large number of manufacturing units have come up in the country without adequate design and testing capabilities. Maintenance practices followed in the organizations also need improvement. Severe and unhealthy competition among manufacturers, coupled with the anxiety of the Power Utilities to hold the price line had led to lowering of quality in design and manufacture. In advanced countries, the price line remains at a reasonable level and quality is very good because of the continuous improvements made in design, materials and manufacturing techniques. The rapid expansion of power systems both in urban and rural areas coupled with the quality of transformers has been imposing a great burden on the operation and maintenance wings of power utilities.

INTRODUCTION

Since the industrial revolution, the Oil & Gas industry has played a pivotal role in the economic transformation of the world, fuelling the need for heat, light and mobility of the world’s population Energy assets including those deployed either onshore or offshore, are subject to a variety of harsh operational and environmental conditions which lead to deterioration of their performance and structural capacity over time. The aim of reduction of CAPEX in new installations shifts focus to operational management to monitor and assess the performance of critical assets ensuring their fitness for service throughout their service life and also to provide appropriate and effective information towards requalification or other end of life scenarios, optimizing the OPEX. Production losses, due to turnarounds and unforeseen shutdowns in oil and gas operations, are significant, and the improvement potential is large. Therefore, people, equipment, technology, IT and all other assets involved in production are managed always looking for an increase in revenues (or value), a reduction in costs through improvement of internal effectiveness and at the same time, complying with strict HSE regulations. Operational management (OM) of assets extends this scope to also consider the efficient planning and execution of activities relating to the delivery of a service or a process. For this reason, OM can be considered as a critical management function of every business, being its performance determinant for success. 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 training programme is on Land-based Onshore Rigs, its various systems function, and best operation & maintenance practice. 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 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 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 Thermal or Gas based Power Plant, Heat energy is converted to mechanical energy rotating 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 a 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. Applying proven state-of-the-art technology while striving for cost-optimal efficiencies are key customer requirements in any new power plant project. New technologies like Vacuum Pressure Insulation (VPI) has increased the reliability of the 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, transportation, Erection and commissioning and as well as in Operation and Maintenance. This program takes the participants through various aspects of the design of construction features of thermal, gas and Hydro Generators, Erection & Commissioning, best O&M practices, troubleshooting of generators with case studies.
