Unit control is in CMC mode.5.
Airflow control is in auto with both FD fans in service.6.
Both PA fans in operation in CAS mode.7.
Both PAPH and SAPHs are in service.8.
Both ID fans in service and furnace draft control in auto.
E-2 ENSURING THE FOLLOWING : -
Running contact of other running SAPH is available .2.
Revise the station DC as per the planned shut down programme.3.
Availability of atomizing steam and HFO at requisite pressure & temp (oil: 100ºC / 17-18 kg/cm², Steam:200 – 210ºC / 6.5 kg/cm²).4.
Completion of WB/LRSB operation before starting the load reduction.
Availability of PAPH / SAPH soot blowers for operation.6.
Availability of auxiliary drive (air motor) of SAPH (which is to be stopped). Air receiver tank pressurenormal (7Kg/cm²).7.
Best communication between control room and local.
TDBFP- A / B recirculation valve auto-closing protection to be taken care
E-3 PROCEDURE FOR STOPPING AND ISOLATION OF ANY SECOND SAPH : -
Take the unit control to manual from CMC mode. (Turbine on limit pressure control and Boiler master onmanual).2.
Take fuel master to manual and gradually reduce the load to
by slowly unloading and removing7
running mill. Check airflow according to the load (1650T/ hr corresponding to 400MW).3.
Take HFO support in one elevation corresponding to any running mill according to the mill combination(At least 3 oil guns in one elevation).4.
Gradually reduce the load to
by slowly unloading and removing 6
running mill. Check airflowaccording to the load (1450T/ hr corresponding to 300MW).5.
Reduce MS pressure set point according to the load during the process of load reduction.6.
Check the loading and suction flow of TDBFP A / B. If suction flow is low corresponding to the speed,Then keep open any one TDBFP- A / B recirculation valve.
Adjust the burner tilt position to maintain MS & HRH temperature up to maximum possible
consecutive mills in service to ensure stable combustion.9.
Take airflow control into manual.10.
Gradually close the SAPH (which is to be stopped) air outlet damper from local & lock it mechanicallyand simultaneously maintain the flue gas outlet temperature by closing the FG outlet damper of corresponding SAPH. Adjust the PAPH A/B and other running SAPH flue gas outlet dampers fromremote and balance the FG outlet temperatures. Then isolate the damper actuator power supply.11.
Check the total airflow for any variation while closing air outlet damper and adjust it.12.
Gradually close the air inlet damper from local and lock it mechanically. Isolate the power supply.13.
Close flue gas inlet damper from local and lock it mechanically. Isolate the power supply.14.
Close flue gas outlet damper fully from remote and lock it. It can be opened to 10% with the help of C& Ito create negative draft in side the SAPH if it is required by BMD.15.
Start PAPH – A / B and running SAPH soot blowing. (This is to be done at least twice in a shift as long as
