Issues & Challenges in Thermal Power Plants Environmental Norms

25th-26th April 2018 Mumbai - 27th-28th April 2018 Kolkata

Course Description

The Objectives:

The objectives training program is to create awareness & sensitize the Power Plant Engineers/ Professionals about the challenges in power sector due to stringent tariff regulations, Environmental norm & PAT implementations. It also addresses how to meet the challenges through Power Plant combustion improvement, Equipment efficiency improvement by retrofitting, adopting best O&M practices and adopting new technologies

The Learning Outcomes:

Participants shall gain knowledge on:
1. Present challenges faced by the thermal power sector.
2. Fundamentals of coal combustion in utility boilers, combustion optimization, and efficiency improvement and thus protect the environment
3. Different coal combustion Technologies available utilities.
4. Plant individual equipment (boiler, air heaters, mill & ESP) performance assessment methodology & Computations, performance data analysis. Which shall enable them to work out potentials areas for improvement.
5. New technologies for meeting environmental norms

On attending the program participant can implement the knowledge in their own stations and can achieve appreciable performance improvement and will be able to meet the environmental challenges.
