Thermal Power Plants Boiler & Auxiliaries Training in Mumbai

26th-27th September 2018 Mumbai - 28th-29th September 2018 Kolkata

Course Description

Power Plant Masterclass - Thermal Power Plants - Boiler, Air Heater & its Auxilaries

Impacts of boiler efficiency: 

Many factors can impact boiler efficiency, such as poor water treatment, high flue-gas temperature, lowquality fuel, too much excess air (i.e., high oxygen [O2]), low feed-water supply temperature, low combustion-air supply temperature, radiant-heat loss, poor combustion, conduction-heat loss (e.g., fouled tubes), operation at low or cyclic loads, and poor controls/instrumentation. Two of every three steam-plant boilers my company inspects are in need of operational improvements, many of which include major cost-saving opportunities. Facilities with more “mature” steam plants may be using excess fuel, emitting higher levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and carbon dioxide (Co2), and impacting manufacturing-process reliability. Efficiency tests should be conducted annually in facilities with boiler fuel costs exceeding $400,000, semiannually in facilities with costs exceeding $800,000, and quarterly in facilities with costs exceeding $2 million. Many boiler-service companies can evaluate steam-plant conditions for a nominal fee. An experienced boiler consultant can identify and quantify anomalies that could be costing thousands of dollars per month.

Benefits to attendees:

Differentiate controllable and uncontrollable losses. List key performance parameters in Heat Rate management State factors responsible for Heat Rate degradation Undertake performance review and analysis to capture performance degradation impacting Heat Rate Explain the Performance Testing techniques of boiler, turbine etc. State the various off line and on line performance tracking and diagnostic tools and associated techniques Specify interventions needed for Heat Rate management on the basis of gap between design and operation parameters
