  4. 4. INTRODUCTION Electricity generation is the process of generating electric power from sources of energy. Electricity is most often generated at a power station by electromechanical generators, primarily driven by heat engines fuelled by chemical combustion or nuclear fission but also by other means such as the kinetic energy of flowing water and wind. There are many other technologies that can be and are used to generate electricity such as solar photovoltaic and geothermal power. In Pakistan the abundance of gas and oil leads to establishment of thermal power stations and governing bodies namely PEPCO, IPP’s and PAEC power acts as pioneers in the generation of electricity. Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) The factors responsible for the shift in policies were: generation capacity could not be increased to meet demand; WAPDA's growth caused inefficiencies, 'demand suppression' and high tariff policy, proliferated theft. All these factors, over the years, adversely affected WAPDA's financial condition. As part of this program WAPDA's functions under its Water Wing and Power Wing were to be segregated. It was previously envisaged that all power generation, hydel as well as thermal, would be corporatized. However, later on it was decided that the hydel generation should remain part of the Water Wing or the remaining WAPDA. PEPCO has prepared the conceptual framework and is following a comprehensive strategy whereby WAPDA's vertical-monolithic Power Wing has been restructured into twelve (12) distinct autonomous entities under Companies Ordinance 1984. These are: three generation, one transmission and eight distribution corporate entities. Vision To make Pakistan Power Sector customer friendly, efficient, able and responsive in meeting tee electric energy requirements of industry, business and domestic customers, and move to an energy sufficient model from the current energy deficient scenario, on commercially viable and sustainable basis, in order to support the high growth economy and to meet the government's objective of "Power for All". Thermal Generation PEPCO's Thermal Power Generation is mainly based on generation of power from its Steam TurboGenerators, Gas Turbines (simple as well as Combined Cycle Units) installed at different Power Stations located in Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan provinces. Indigenous Gas & Coal is the main fuel whereas Furnace oil and HSD are also used as alternative fuel. As per Government of Pakistan policy all thermal power generation has been restructured and four corporatized companies namely Jamshoro Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-1) head quarter at Jamshoro district Dadu near Hyderabad Sindh, Central Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-2) head quarter at Guddu district Jacobabad Sindh and Northern Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-3) head quarters at Muzaffargarh and Lakhra Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-IV) at Khanote (Sindh) have been formed and registered. Functioning of GENCOs has commenced.
  5. 5. Basics Needs and Overview of Thermal Power Plant SITE REQUIREMENT:- The basic requirements of thermal power plant are determined by the type, size and other specifications of the plant. It is required to know the immediate capacity of the power plant after construction and the extension of capacity in the future, to determine the area required for construction of the plant. The basic things that are taken into consideration areBasic Needs and Overview of a Thermal Power Plant. The idea that STEAM has potential energy and can be converted into kinetic energy was given by famous scientist, Sir. James Watt. This idea became the governing principal of many mechanical processes and finally led to the success of Thermal Power Energy. The need of establishing a Thermal Power Plant came to engineers by the realization of the fact that Hydel Power could be utilized only for certain period of time in a year. This section will give the basic requirements for Thermal Power Plant. <1>Station Building, <2>Cooling Towers, <3>Switch yard compound,<4> CLIMATIC. CONDITION:- The tropical climate is best for erection of thermal power plant, because areas having high humidity and fluctuating temperature lead to dew point and condensation which as a result damages the electrical machines and corrodes the insulation and over head cables. Page | 7 TRANSMISSION: -The plant area must have route available for transmission over head cables to the nearest grid lines or load points which will be capable of accepting the generated power output of the power station. EFFLUENTS:-Due to heavy rate of coal combustion residual volume is also high. The main residual product is ash. The plant must have facilities like ash pond to dispose them safely without harming the environment. TRANSPORT:- It is one of the another vital factor of the plant as huge burden lies on transportation in daily basis because of huge need of coal, furnace oil, hydrochloric acid and other chemical products along with mechanical products. WATER REQUIREMENT:- Water is required in power plant for two basic needs, first is for steam generation and second is for cooling purpose. Thermal Power Plant requires huge volume of water, nearly of about 3 to 4 Tons/hr/MW only for steam generation. So site of plant must also have reliable and huge water sources located near to it. GEOLOGY:- The geology of the site should be cost effective and the subsoil must be able to with stand huge load of foundation. Surrounding areas and approaching. AMENITIES:-Some considerations like availability of hospital, educational institutes and other facilities must be taken into account. PERSONNEL REQUIREMENTS:- To run a plant smoothly requirement of skilled and unskilled personnel is very important. So recruitment of workers and skilled personnel should be made carefully and in adequate amount. PROXIMITY OF AIRFIELDS:- The airfields must be studied properly to avoid mishaps as the chimney height ranges from 500 to 600 fts and boiler housing is of 200 fts in general.

  10. 10. Water Handling Plant In Thermal power plants, plenty of water is needed for generation of electricity. Water in a Power Plant is used for: 1. Production of Steam- for rotating turbine. 2. Cooling Purpose- For cooling of various equipments. Water which is used as a working fluid needs some treatment. Reasons to choose Water as a Working Fluid: • It is only common substance available & exists in 3 states (Ice, water, steam)at normal temperature. • Having high specific heat mean heat carrying capacity is high. • Having low specific volume than air. • Low Cost • High Availability • Non-reactive But water is universal solvent; it dissolves many gases, salts, metals etc. so no source of water is pure so for the formation of stem water should e pure otherwise generated steam will damage the turbine like rusting. Impurities in Water Impurities present in water are grouped into 4 categories: 1) Suspended Matter • Mean any matter floating or suspended nature in water • Microorganisms • Grits 2) Dissolved Salts • Ca, Mg, K, Chlorates, Sulphates, Silicates etc. 3) Dissolved Gases  Oxygen, Carbon dioxide, Ammonia etc. Water is recycled and used for various purposes: Water Cycle
  11. 11. Flow Chart COMPONENT OF STEAM/WATER CYCLE: A fossil fuel steam generator includes an economizer, a steam drum, and the furnace with its steam generating tubes and super-heater coils. Necessary safety valves are located at suitable points to avoid excessive boiler pressure. Condenser: The condenser condenses the steam from the exhaust of the turbine into liquid to allow it to be pumped. If the condenser can be made cooler, the pressure of the exhaust steam is reduced and efficiency of the cycle increases. The surface condenser is a shell and tube heat exchanger in which cooling water is circulated through the tubes. The exhaust steam from the low pressure turbine enters the shell where it is cooled and converted to condensate (water) by flowing over the tubes as shown in the adjacent diagram. For best efficiency, the
  12. 12. temperature in the condenser must be kept as low as practical in order to achieve the lowest possible pressure in the condensing steam. High Pressure Heater: A heater located downstream of boiler feed pump. Typically, the tube side design pressure is at least 100Kg/cm2, and the steam source is the high pressure turbine. [The heating process by means of extraction of steam is referred to as being regenerative] Low Pressure Heater: A Heater is located between the condensate pomp and either of the boiler feed pump. It normally extracts steam from low pressure turbine. GSC: Gland steam condenser is meant for condensing the steam which was used for sealing the LABYRINTH GLAND and reusing it in cycle. Economizers: These are heat exchange devices that heat fluids, usually water, up to but not normally beyond the boiling point of that fluid. Economizers are so named because they can make use of the enthalpy in fluid streams that are hot, but not hot enough to be used in a boiler, thereby recovering more useful enthalpy and improving the boilers efficiency. They are a device fitted to a boiler which saves energy by using the exhaust gases from the boiler to preheat the feed. Typically the cooling water causes the steam to condense at a temperature of about 35 °C (95 °F) and that creates an absolute pressure in the condenser of about 2–7 kPa (0.59–2.1 in Hg), i.e. a vacuum of about −95 kPa (−28.1 in Hg) relative to atmospheric pressure. The large decrease in volume that occurs when water vapours condenses to liquid creates the low vacuum that helps pull steam through and increase the efficiency of the turbines. The condenser generally uses either circulating cooling water from a cooling tower to reject waste heat to the atmosphere, or once-through water from a river, lake or ocean. Cooling Towers: The condensate (water) formed in the condenser after condensation is initially at high temperature. This hot water is passed to cooling towers. It is a tower- or building-like device in which atmospheric air (the heat receiver) circulates in direct or indirect contact with warmer water (the heat source) and the water is thereby cooled. A cooling tower may serve as the heat sink in a conventional thermodynamic process and when it is convenient or desirable to make final heat rejection to atmospheric air. Water, acting as the heat-transfer fluid, gives up heat to atmospheric air, and thus cooled, is recirculate through the system, affording economical operation of the process. With respect to drawing air through the tower, Forced Draft Cooling Tower there are three types of cooling towers: a). Natural Draft b).Induced draft c).Forced Draft Note: Here at JTPS Forced Draft Cooling Method is used.
  13. 13. Furnace and Boiler What is Boiler? A boiler is a closed vessel in which water or fluid is heated. The heated or vaporized fluid exits the for use in various processes or heating applications, including boiler-based power generation, cooking, and sanitation. Here in TPS Jamshoro, the boiler is a rectangular furnace about 50 feet (15 m) on a side and 130feet (40 m) tall. Its walls are made of a web of high pressure steel tubes about 2.3inches (58 mm) in diameter. other boiler Types of Boiler: In fire tube boiler, hot gases pass through the tubes and boiler feed water in the shell side is converted into steam. Fire tube boilers are generally used for relatively small steam capacities and low to medium steam pressures. As a guideline, fire tube boilers are competitive for steam rates up to 12,000 kg/hour and pressures up to 18 kg/cm2. Fire tube boilers are Fire tube Boiler available for operation with oil, gas or solid fuels. For economic reasons, most fire tube boilers are nowadays of “packaged” construction (i.e. manufacturers shop erected) for all fuels. Fire Tube Boiler: Water Tube Boiler: In water tube boiler, boiler feed water flows through the tubes and enters the boiler drum. The circulated water is heated by the combustion gases and converted into steam at the space in the drum. These boilers are selected when the steam demand as well as steam pressure requirements are high as in the of process cum power boiler / power boilers. Most modern water tube designs are within the capacity range 4,500 – 120,000 kg/hour of steam, at very high-pressures. Many water tube boilers nowadays are “packaged” construction if oil and /or gas are to be used as fuel. Solid fired water tube designs are available but packaged designs are less common. Note: At TPS, Jamshoro, Water tube Boilers are incorporated. Furnace: A furnace is a device used for heating. The name derives from Latin fornix, oven. The boiler furnace auxiliary equipment include soil or gas feed nozzles and igniter guns, soot blowers, water lancing and observation ports (in the furnace walls) for observation of the furnace interior. Furnace explosions due to any accumulation of combustible gases after a trip-out are avoided by flushing out such gases from the combustion zone before igniting the fuel i.e. gas or vapor case boiler of fuel
  14. 14. oil. The gas or oil is blown with part of the combustion air into the boiler plant through a series of burner nozzles. Secondary and tertiary air may also be added. Combustion takes place at temperatures from 1300-1700°C. Particle residence time in the boiler is typically 2 to 5 seconds, and the particles must be small enough for complete combustion to have taken place during this time. This system has many advantages such as ability to fire varying quality of coal, quick responses to changes in load, use of high pre-heat air temperatures etc. One of the most popular systems for firing pulverized coal is the tangential firing using four burners corner to corner to create a fireball at the center of the furnace. Boiler Drum: Boiler Drum is the part of boiler where the dematerialized water is stored and is inserted into the boiler. It is also houses the steam that is formed in the boiler. Water stored in the drum comes down to the top of the boiler and forms a Water Ring which’s then inserted into the boiler through the water walls. Water Walls are basically tubes along the walls of the furnace, it is here where the water is converted into steam at1300 and water separated due to centrifugal force. The pressure of boiler drums is150kg/ and must be always maintained. Water in the drum comes from feed control station via economizer.
  15. 15. Steam Turbine The 250/210 MW turbine installed in TPS, Jamshoro is one of condensing-tandem-compound, three cylinder, horizontal, disc, and diaphragm, reheat type with nozzle governing and is directly coupled with A.C generator. ROTOR: - The rotor is basically the main rotating part of the turbine which also called the shaft and is attached with the rotor of the A.C generator via coupling. Rotor is basically divided into 3 categories and they are as follows: - is a) HIGH PRESSURE ROTOR: - This is basically made of single Cr-Mo-V steel forged with internal disc attached to T-shoot fastening designed especially for stabilizing the HPT and preventing the axial shift. b) INTERMEDIATE PRESSURE ROTOR: This is made from high creep resisting CrMo-V steel forging and the shrunk fit disc are machined from nickel-steel forging. This basically adjusts the frequency of the blades. c) LOW PRESSURE ROTOR: - This is made from the above mention alloy used in IP Rotors; blades are secured to the respective disc by riveted fork root fastening. Wires are provided in all stages of this to adjust the frequently of the blades. BLADES: - Blades are single most costly element fitted in the turbine. Blades fitted in the stationary part are called guide blades and those fitted in the rotor are called moving or working blades. Blades are of basically three types, they are as follows: a) Cylindrical ( constant profile) blade b) Tapered cylindrical blade c) Twisted and varying profile blade SEALING GLANDS: To eliminate the possibility of steam leakage to the atmosphere from the inlet and the exhaust end of the cylinder, labyrinth glands of the radial clearance type are provided which provide a trouble free frictionless sealing. EMERGENCY STOP VALVES AND CONTROL VALVES: - Turbine is equipped with emergency stop valves to cut off steam supply and with control valve regulate steam supply. Emergency stop valves are provided in main stream line and control valves are provided in the hot reheat line. COUPLING: -
  16. 16. Since the rotor is made in small parts due to forging limitations and other technological and economic reasons, the couplings are required between any two rotors. The coupling permits angular misalignment, transmits axial thrust and ensures axial location. BEARING: Journal bearing are manufactured in two halves and usually consist of bearing body faced with anti-friction tin based habiting to decrease coefficient of friction. Bearings are usually force lubricated and have provision for admission of jacking oil. Thrust bearing is normally Mitchell type and is usually combined with a journal bearing, housed in spherically machined steel shell. The bearing between HP and IP rotor is of this type. The rest is of journal type. BARRING GEAR: The barring gear is mounted on the L.P rear bearing cover to mesh with spur gear L.P rotor rear coupling. The primary function of the barring gear is to rotate the rotor of the turbo generator slowly and continuously during the start-up and shut sown process when the temperature of the rotor changes. TURBINE LUBRICATION OIL SYSTEM: The LUB-OIL system of turbine comprises of following category. a) MAIN OIL PUMP: - It is mounted on the front bearing pedestal and coupled through gear coupling to the rotor. When the turbine is running at its normal speed of 3000rpmthen the oil to the governing system (at 20 kg/ and to the lubrication system (at 1 kg/ is supplied by this pump. b) STARTING OIL PUMP: - It is a multi-staged centrifugal oil pump driven by A.C powered electric motor. It provides the oil requirement for starting up and stopping of the turbine. It provides oil to the governing system and to the lubrication system until the turbine is running at speed lower than 2800rpm. c) STANDBY OIL PUMP: - This is a centrifugal pump driven by A.C motor. It runs for initial10 minutes at the starting to remove air from the governing system and fill up oil to it. d) EMERGENCY OIL PUMP: This is a centrifugal pump driven by D.C motor. This pump is foreseen as a backup oil pump to A.C oil pumps. This pump automatically cuts in when the A.C power fails in the power station. e) JACKING OIL PUMP: - This pump enables the complete rotor assembly to be raised upon to be floated in the bearing assembly during the start-up and shut down process of the process. Thus this prevents the damage to the bearings when the shaft is too low for hydrodynamic lubrication to take place. JOP sucks and delivers oil to the journal bearings at 120kg/ for lifting of the rotor. f) OIL COOLERS: - The oil of governing and lubrication system is cooled in the oil coolers by the circulating water. There are five such coolers; four are for continuous operation and one for standby.
  17. 17. Electrical System Overview ELECTRICAL STSTEM OF THERMAL POWER BASCICALLY CONSISTS OF FOLLOWING PARTS:  GENERATORS  SWITCHYARD  POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSYTEM Generator The transformation of mechanical energy into electrical energy is carried out by generator. The A.C generator or alternator is based on the principal of electromagnetic induction and generally consists of a stationary part called stator and a rotating part called rotor. The stator houses the armature windings and the rotor houses the field windings. A D.C voltage is applied to the field winding in the rotor through slip rings, when the rotor is rotated, the lines of magnetic flux is cut through the stator windings. This as a result produces an induced e.m.f (electromotive force) in the stator winding which is tapped out as output. The magnitude of this output is determined by the following equation:E = 4.44/O f N volts Where E = e.m.f induced; O =Strength of magnetic field in Weber; f= Frequency in cycles per second or in hertz; N = Number of turns in the winding of the stator; Again, f = P n/120; Where P = Number of poles; n = revolutions per second of the rotor. From the above expression it is clear that for the same frequency number of poles increases with decrease in speed and vice versa. Therefore low speed hydro turbine drives generators have 14to 20poles where as for high speed steam turbine driven generators have 2 poles. Generator Components Rotor: Rotor is the most difficult part to construct; it revolves at a speed of 3000rpm. The massive nonuniform shaft subjected to a multiplicity of differential stresses must operate in oil lubricated sleeve bearings supported by a structure mounted on foundations all of which poses complex dynamic behavior peculiar to them. It is also an electromagnet and to give it the necessary magnetic strength the windings must carry a fairly high current. The rotor is a cast steel ingot and it is further forged and machined. Very often a hole bored through the centre of the rotor axially from one end to the other for inspection. Slots are then machined for windings and ventilation. Rotor winding: Silver bearing copper is used for the winding with mica as insulation between conductors. A mechanically strong insulator such as micanite is used for lining the slots. For cooling purpose slots and holes are provided for circulation of cooling gas. The wedges the windings when the centrifugal force developed due to high speed rotation tries to lift the windings. The two ends of the winding are connected to slip-rings made of forged steel and mounted on insulated sleeves.
  18. 18. Stator: The major part of the stator frame is the stator core, it comprises of inner and outer frame. The stator core is built up of a large number of punching or section of thin steel plates. The use of cold rolled grain-oriented steel can contribute to reduction of stator core. Stator windings: Each stator conductor must be capable of carrying the rated current without overheating. The insulation must be sufficient to prevent leakage current flowing between the phases to earth. Windings for the stator are made up from copper strips wound with insulated tape switch is impregnated with varnish, dried under vacuum and hot pressed to form a solid insulation bar. In 210MW generators the windings are made up of copper tubes through which water is circulated for cooling purpose. Generator Cooling and Sealing System 1) HYDROGEN COOLING SYSTEM: Hydrogen is used as cooling medium in large capacity generators in view of its high heat carrying capacity and low density. But in view of its explosive mixture with oxygen, proper arrangement for filling, purging and maintaining its purity inside the generator have to be made. Also in order to prevent escape of hydrogen from the generator casing, shaft sealing system is used to provide oil sealing. The system is capable of performing the following functions:a) Filling in and purging of hydrogen safely. b) Maintaining the gas pressure inside the machine at the desired value all the time. c) Provide indication of pressure, temperature and purity of hydrogen. d) Indication of liquid level inside the generator. 2) Generator Sealing System: Seals are employed to prevent leakage of hydrogen from the stator at the point of rotor exit. A continuous film between the rotor collar and the seal liner is maintained by means of oil at the pressure which is about above the casing hydrogen gas pressure. The thrust pad is held against the collar of rotor by means of thrust oil pressure, which is regulated in relation to the hydrogen pressure and provides the positive maintenance of the oil film thickness. The shaft sealing system contains the following components. a) A.C Oil Pump b) D.C Oil Pump c) Oil injector d) Differential Pressure Regulator e) Damper Tank. Excitation System: 1).Static Excitation: •Alternator terminal voltage is used here. •SCR gate signal are derived from alternator output through CT and P.T. • SCR- based controlled rectifier is supplied is supplied from alternator output through step down transformer. • Alternator terminal voltage is used here. • To generate the alternator output, it is run at rated speed with its field supplied from a separate D.C supply bank.
  19. 19. • Rectifier output voltage is fed to the alternator field winding. • This scheme is less expensive requires little maintenance. • Excitation energy depends on alternator speed. 2) BRUSHLESS EXCITATION: •Main shaft of prime movers drives pilot exciter, main exciter and the main alternator. •Main exciter supplies A.C power to silicon diode bridge rectifier through hollow shaft which feeds the D.C to the field of main alternator. • Pilot exciter feeds 3-phase power to main exciter. • Pilot exciter is a permanent magnet alternator. •This scheme is mainly employed in turbo alternators.

  20. 20. TRANSFORMERS  It is a static device which transfers electric powers from one circuit to the other without any change in frequency, but with a change in voltage and corresponding current levels also.  Here the transformers used are to transfer electric power from 15.75KV to 220KV or 400KVthat are provided to the national grid.  The step-up generator transformers are of ONAN/ANOF/AFOF cooling type. Power Transformers  Power Transformers enhances the productivity as well as maximizes the capacity level of the high power supply equipments. These are ultimate for the regular power without any cut off. They are used for control high voltage and frequency for the different systems. Power transformers having the following standards: They can assist three phases. There ratings are up to 2000 KVA. Copper and aluminum winding material is used in this. Applicable Standards are IS, IEC, ANSI, JIS, etc. It is sufficient for primary as well as secondary voltage .   Auto Transformer     High voltage auto-transformers represent an important component of bulk transmission systems and are used to transform voltage from one level to another. These auto-transformers are critical for regional load supply, inter-regional load transfers and for certain generator/load connections. To minimize the impact of this type of failures, utilities may carry some spare units to guard against such events. These spare units are going to cost utilities money (utility cost) to purchase, to store and to maintain and utilities should try to strike the right balance between the utility cost and the risk cost (if spare units are not there). Major or catastrophic failures to this equipment can have severe consequences to electric utilities in terms of increased operating costs and customer load losses. Advantages of Autotransformers: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Its efficiency is more when compared with the conventional one. Its size is relatively very smaller. Voltage regulation of autotransformer is much better. Lower cost. Low requirements of excitation current. Less copper is used in its design and construction. In conventional transformer the voltage step up or step down value is fixed while in autotransformer, we can vary the output voltage as per out requirements and can smoothly increase or decrease its value as per our requirement. Applications: 1. Used in both Synchronous Motor and Induction Motor. 2. Used in electrical apparatus testing labs since the voltage can be smoothly and continuously varied. 3. They find application as boosters in AC feeders to increase the voltage levels.
  21. 21. Transformer Cooling The load that a transformer carries without heat damage can be increased by using an adequate cooling system. This is due to the fact that a transformers loading capacity is partly decided by its ability to dissipate heat. 1. Dry Type Cooling 2. Air Forced/Air Naturel(AF/AN) - Transformers temperature is being kept at acceptable levels by forced/naturel air from a fan/air circulation. Cooling fins are attached to increase the surface area of heat radiation. 3. Oil Forced/Oil Naturel (OF/ON) – Oil are used in transformer to provide insulation and as a coolent agent. If the oil is circulated by pump than it is known as Oil Forced cooling system, otherwise Oil Naturel Cooling System. In Jamshoro TPS naturally ONAN, ONAF, OFAN, OFAF and dry cooling system are used for transformer cooling purpose.
  22. 22. AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE REGULATOR (AVR) It is a regulator which regulates the output voltage at a nominal constant voltage level. Role of AVR AVR (Automatic voltage regulator) has following roles. 1) To regulate generator terminal voltage Mainly generator under no-load condition, AVR regulates the generator voltage to voltage setter (90R). *AVR detects terminal voltage and compare with voltage setter (90R). *AVR regulates field current via the Exciter. *Generator terminal voltage is regulated by field current. Vt < 90R _ Field current will be increase Vt > 90R _ Field current will be decrease 2) To adjust MVars (Reactive power) When the generator connected to power grid, AVR adjust reactive power by regulate generator voltage. Reactive Power (Q) =(Vt-VS) MVar (Reactive power: Q) is regulated by generator terminal voltage. Therefore AVRcan regulate MVars. Vt is increased _ MVars will be increase Vt is decreased _ MVars will be decrease 3) To Improve the Power System Stability There are two stabilities: -Transient Stability…….Improved by AVR -Dynamic Stability……Improved by PSS(Power System Stabilizer)
