Problem if any, shall be brought to the notice of the authority for rectification and arranging provisions for mounting audit instruments during Audit Preparatory Activities, prior to start of the detailed EA.

  37. A Energy Audit Of BoilersPerformance of Boiler and APH be established by measuring exit flue gas temperature and its analysis at around nine to fifteen points in flue gas duct cross section before and after APH to eliminate effect of gas stratification as per international practice (Refer enclosed boiler test scheme Annexure – I). This is because boiler efficiency differs by around 2.0% by this method than if the measurements are taken at single point. Scope will include the following DETAILED ENERGY AUDIT • Conduct boiler efficiency measurements as per above test scheme by indirect method i.e heat loss method, evaluate Boiler efficiency and identify potential areas for improvements such as.

  38. Heat loss due to heat in dry flue gas. Heat loss due to moisture in as fired fuel. Heat loss due to moisture from burning of hydrogen in fuel Heat loss due to moisture in air. Heat loss due to surface radiation and convection. Heat loss due to formation of carbon monoxide. Heat loss due to combustibles in bottom and fly ash Check up air ingress in boiler from LTSH area downwards upto I.D fans.

  39. Determine Air preheater performance to establish. • Gas Side Efficiency – As ratio of gas temperature drop corrected for no air leakage to temperature heads. • Air leakage as percentage of air passing from airside to gas side. • X-Ratio I,e heat capacity of air passing through the air heater to the heat capacity of gas passing through the air heater. • Air side and gas side pressure loss across the air heater. • Input power measurement of ID FANS / FD fans, PA fans, Fan Loading & combined efficiency of fan and motor and their specific power consumption • Energy Audit test has to be carried out for four hours by recording parameters at every 15 minutes and average of data to be utilized for evaluation.

  40. B Energy Audit of steam turbine cycle and it auxiliaries For Energy Audit of steam turbine cycle, all the parameters as per the enclosed scheme in Annexure – II are to be measured simultaneously by hooking up these calibrated instruments to a data logger. The recording has to be at least for a minimum period of two hours with each measurement being recorded at an interval of one minute. Average of the data so collected to be utilized for evaluation of the following and suggestions for deficient areas for improvements to be made. Turbine cycle heat rate. HP and IP cylinders efficiency Turbine pressure survey

  41. TTD & DCA of HP / LP heaters performance • Condenser performance i.e • Condenser back pressure after duly considering the effect of present C.W inlet temp. C.W flow, heat load on condenser and air ingress to condenser vis-à-vis design conditions • C.W side pressure drop in condenser • Cycle losses • Performance of turbine glands • Ejector performance

  42. For accurate heat rate determination, Turbine inlet flow and reheat flow need to be evaluated as per international practice by measuring condensate flow through measurement of ∆p of plant condensate flow orifice after checking its condition and using evaluated drip and extraction to deaerator flows through heat and mass balance across heaters and deaerator as per scheme. Fall in deaerator level and HPTV and IPV leak off flow are also considered. Alternately by mass balance across deaerator if flow orifices are installed in drip and extraction lines to deaerator. Deaerator outlet feed flow shall then be taken as the main steam flow after considering for RH spray tap off from Boiler feed line.
