CEP RECIRCULATION VALVE JAMMING: The CEP recirculation valves are cage & plug type valves with close tolerance. during initial operation. The analysis revealed that by virtue of recirculation line tap of routing the recirculation line & the CEP discharge line up to NRV was getting drained to the level of condenser level by creating air column in the discharge line. We recommended the vendor. to make the connection better and free from trouble by seal welding the stem & plug on the thread stems and spot welding of taper pin after full insertion. This problem encountered in both the units. sudden rush of water flow in the recirculation line was causing jerk & high vibrations in the recirculation pipe line & main line. • The taper pin totally coming out and end the stem threading connection to the plug. Page 23 of 175 .Disconnection of stem & plug. • From the failure. When the pump is started. • The nature of failure is called taper pin connecting stem & plug coming out halfway from location & obstructing the valve operation. Even small contamination is sufficient to make the valve movement sticky. VSC 10” XCU500 . With PEM concurrence. the sudden rush of water causes the line to vibrate heavily and damaging the yoke. getting un-served & stem become independent. With the above. REPEATED FEED CONTROL: VALVE OPERATION PROBLEMS: Feed Control Valve model No. Additional supporting in the recirculation line is no help. with higher across the valve during start up & initial commissioning operation. the valve problem was eliminated.CEP RECIRCULATION VALVE YOKE BREAKING: While starting the pump. With the plug matching clearance was established. and valve operation became smooth. pin tends to come out halfway or fully. one more NRV was introduced immediately after the pump in the discharge line to have always a water cushion & problem got eliminated.

ESP HOPPERS PANEL TYPE HEATERS: ASH EVACUATION PROBLEM:
During coal firing, ash evacuation problem was experienced & ash was getting accumulated in the hoppers and manually removed by dumping at the ESP floor itself. It was inspected that ESP hopper heaters were not maintaining the hopper temperature at 120ºC with thermostat setting at 120ºC and hence ash is not freely flowing to deashing pipes. BHEL Ranipet & site, reviewed the installation of thermostat fixing. The panel heater vendor’s drawing calls for batting of installation with channel welded around hopper, but BHEL Trichy drawing calls for air gap. Due to this air gap, cross air current existed and hence the hopper temperature was not maintained. The thermostat installation was not as per vendor drawing and also Ash handling agency M/s Burn Standard, have not installed the mouthpiece. The installation application was modified & M/s Burn Standard also installed the mouthpiece in the entire hoppers with the above work. Initially there was considerable improvement; later on problem was fully resolved. Initially the hoppers before ESP were not connected to Ash evacuation system causing the ESP over burden. Later on, during shut down ash handling agency connected the hoppers. In Unit-4, the modifications were incorporated in the beginning itself.

CLINKERING PROBLEM IN BOILER:
Due to huge build up of clinkering with certain type of coal, Unit#3 load has to be reduced & twice has to be stopped for clearing the same. The matter was referred to BHEL/ Trichy and NTPC/OS group. BHEL has suggested removal of shield plate & deflector plate in the coal nozzles. NTPC agreed for the removal of only deflector plates. The same was implemented in Boiler#4 before coal firing and after seeing the performance of Unit#4, deflector plates of unit#3 was also removed during shut down. The clinkering problem is considerably reduced.

The seal air fan for milling system is over hung design with two different bearings placed on single bearing pedestal. The bearings are sump oil lubricated and the sump holding capacity is limited. The fan intake suction from P.A. cold duct & the fan shaft seal is labyrinth type with asbestos cut sheet. Both the seal air fans of unit#3 were damaged during the initial operation itself. We have to replace the bearings, its housings, distance tube & shaft. The air past fan shaft seal is pressurizing the nearest bearing housing & expelling oil out, causing starvation & failure. Also the contamination of oil is another reason for bearing failure. In consultation with BHEL Ranipet, a deflector shield installed on shaft between fan side bearing housing so that high-pressure air leakage past seal is diverted & does not enter the fan bearing. With this arrangement the fan reliability was improved. 1. Grease Lubricated type is best suited for this dust laden atmosphere. 2. The leveling of both bearing housing on X & Y axis over pedestal is difficult for erectors. 3. For vulnerable service fans, bearing temp indication at UCB with trip is to be implemented.

ASH LEVEL INDICATOR:
The performance is Ash Level indicator is not satisfactory. False level indication trips the field & some time accumulation of ash damages hammer. Also the hopper ash empty time could not be gauged properly & for sequencing empty. The system is having highly maintenance problem & calibration gets disturbed often, requires continuous maintenance. A better-proven level indication system shall be tried.

MCC CONTACTS PROBLEMS:
The Switch Gear supplied was not giving reliable electrical contacts resulting in interruption & manual adjustment of breaker module for establishing contact. The matter was taken up vendor & they have changed the system with better type arrangements & the problem of soot blower operation interruption is very much minimized.

WALL BLOWER OPERATION:
Wall blower lance motor getting over loaded when the puppet valve begins to open. Three types of motors are supplied to this project namely Bharat Bijlee, Kirloskar & Crompton Greaves. The wall blower operation is designed for 30 Kg/Cm2 steam pressure at soot blowing header pressure. But during commissioning of blowers we noticed that all the motors are not operating with 30 Kg/Cm2 pressure, but these are operating at 20 to 25 Kg/Cm2. Hence the soot blower header pressure control is adjusted to 25 Kg/Cm2. The analysis reveals that the motors rating is just sufficient & any additional mechanical resistance in the blower, resulting in tripping of the traverse motor on lower pressing the puppet valve. All the blowers are being separated at 25 Kg/Cm2. At present 35 Kg/Cm2 steam pressure operation needs demonstration. Trichy valves division is supplying higher rating motors.

The actuator was then dismantled. The actuator was dismantled from unit#4 boiler and assembled with the failed MS stop valve after the stem was jacked up.FAILURE OF MAIN STEAM VALVE MSV-01 (UNIT#3) The main steam valve also called boiler stop valve. as the manual lever was not getting engaged. On 02/12/2004. Some of the gear teeth apparently have broken. Visual inspection did not suggest any problem. it was found that the valve was not operating from remote (control room). Page 46 of 175 . which was procured from supplier and fitted with the damaged actuator MSV-1 for unit#4. heavy metallic sounds were heard from the actuator gear box and the valve was not opening. It was then decided to heat up the valve body by coil heating and then jack the stem up by 2 X 100 MT hydraulic jacks. The first stage steam blowing commenced on 27/11/2004. This may have been due to failure of the limit switches or some other electrical components. as it was not operating either manually or electrically. Fortunately the damage was very minor. isolates boiler from turbine and thus performs a critical function. The MSV was out back into operation on 05/12/2004 and the 2nd stage steam blowing commenced the same day. An expert from Valves division Trichy and M/s Limitorque India Limited engineer (actuator supplier) was called to assess the extent of damage. On removal of actuator attempts were made to jack up the stem initially by 2 X 20 MT hydraulic jacks but stem was not getting lifted up. Attempts to open the valve manually failed. Actuator top cover was opened and gear mechanism was inspected for the source of metallic sounds heard during electrical operation. which was completed on 02/12/2004. The reason for failure of the valve seems to be over traveling of the stem during closing. The valve was commissioned electrically on 24/11/2004 and put on service for steam blowing operation. Electrical operation was then tried. only worm shaft clutch was found damaged. the stem was finally jacked up on 04/12/2004.

BEARING VIBRATION: Since first commissioning of PA fan bearing (two stage axial blade pitching type) high vibrations were observed when compared to the other fans in unit-3 & 4 & frequent peaks during running. The alignment & tightness of fasteners were found in order.06 to study (the behavior) on BHEL site & NTPC request. but the problem persists till date.P. Page 76 of 175 . FAN 4A .A.

The problem of higher reading at UCB is not resolved which is the basis of operations & maintenance.2005.5mm as re-commended by Ranipet vibration levels were checked. The defective input shaft got sheared off while removing it from gear box by puller. During this process. The gear box was removed from its position. it was noticed that input drive shaft of the gear box is damaged ie shaft material is chipped off in triangular shape along the length of the input shaft for a length of 40mm near the coupling hub & keys are dislocated from their position. it was noticed that the drive turbine rear bearing vibration increased from 22 micron to 40 micron. There was reduction in vibration level. The gear box vibration (located between drive turbine & booster pump) also increased alarmingly. Even though. The portable vibration measurement by BHEL Ranipet instrument & customer instrument SRF CM PSK 50 were fairly matching. Matter is pending with BHEL Trichy. BHEL Ranipet representative informed that BHEL (T) has to resolve this as the vibration monitoring system is ordered by them. The gear box was decoupled from drive turbine to check the alignment between turbine & gear box. Ranipet has cleared the fan for running based on local vibration meter reading.

The similar problem may be faced in ECO coil handling system also.It was suspected that the parent material of the input shaft was defective. much heavier trolleys were supplied by M/s Power build hoist maker. This is made of channel with 5mm thick plates. b) The two long distance screw size is about dia 6mm. the joint fails and the power cable along with cable clamps get detached from the trolley. the cover plates of trolley as well as the distance screws easily get bent. The fabrication of these trolleys is under sized. subsequently the supply cable-pulling load comes on the next trolley and one by one they fall down along with the power cable.5mm. the alignment of the trolley thus get disturbed. Here the track length is almost half (50m long) and that too for pulling much lesser cable size compared to Mill service crane DSL cable. The observations on these cable trolley problems as below: a) The two side cover plate thickness is about 2. repair & frequent maintenance of trolleys in the mid air is very difficult and simply Page 78 of 175 . For ESP transformers handling system (PGMA 78-773). c) Welding of stud bolt with the power cable holding clamp is inadequate. open up and disengage from the track beam. Since proper reinforcement is not provided on the cable clamp with the stud. long track with same trolleys. The total distance of the mill service crane DSL track beam is about 110 m (Rihand is having rear mill combination) and the entire cable-pulling load acts on the nearest trolley to the service crane. The machine was made ready in the second week of January 2006. Due to less thickness. As the first one fails. The commissioning of whole mill handling system could not be done and during initial trials itself a lot of break downs occurred with the DSL trolleys. BOILER HOISTS – CABLE TROLLEYS: The cable trolleys units associated with mill handling system DSL are breaking down quite frequently which were supplied by M/s Consolidated Hoists. perhaps suitable for short length tracks where cable pulling load is less. The supplier’s representative was called to supervise the assembly of the new shaft & investigation of the failure. At a high elevation (+72m level).

DELAY ANALYSIS:
As per contract, the unit#3&4 were to be commissioned on coal firing by 13.03.2005 & 13.08.2005, but it was not possible to commission on coal firing due to delayed bunker floors. First synchronization was done by oil firing on 26.01.2005 & 24.09.2005. The trial run operation was completed on 09.10.2005 & 12.04.2006 against the contractual dates of 13.06.2005 & 13.11.2005 of unit#3 & 4 respectively. The reasons for the delays are analyzed as below:

UPTO TRIAL RUN COMPLETION:
BOILER PACKAGE: The boiler is always in critical path. Any delay in civil fronts, material supplies or equipment failure delays the project. MATERIAL SUPPLY (TRICHY): The diverter & flap dampers, which are essential for boiler light up & coal firing respectively, were delayed by more than 6 months in both the units. The ducts were to be dummied for the light ups, it only increased lot of re-work. The rear arch tubes (PG 07), matching piece (P-91) of MS line in unit#4 got delayed by 9-11 months, required for the hydro test. RH front platen coils (PG 16) for unit#4 got delayed by more than 12 months, required for full hydro test. Hot air gates and air receiver (3 nos) for unit#4 received 14-15 months late, must for the sustained load of the machine. CIVIL FRONTS (NTPC): - The bunker floors & bunkers for both the units were delayed by 18 to 24 months, which are required for erection of RC feeder and start of coal piping from mill end. This was a cause for delay in coal firing. BHEL had taken advance action by erecting the mills before casting of bunker floors. Erection of RC feeders & coal piping were carried out on war-footing immediately after availability of fronts to minimize the delay of coal firing and full load. - The flooring around the boiler and approach was always a problem. NTPC started flooring, drains & road works only in the end of project. During raining seasons, material feeding & crane movements were very difficult due to water logging and slushy earth.

Page 89 of 175

- Fan foundations were also made available late by more than 6 months than L2, but it did not affect the schedule of project. FAILURE OF EQUIPMENTS: UNIT#3: CRH line water hammering, Generator transformer failure, Rubber cord at generator exciter end bearing, NMEJs failures, Hot air gates, Ash/ clinker accumulation in hoppers etc delayed in coal firing & trial run completion of Unit#3. UNIT#4: High final CRO values of turbine, Generator seal oil DP problem, Boiler tube leakages, etc. caused delay in coal firing & trial run completion of unit#4. OBSTRUCTIONS FROM CIVIL AGENCIES: As the NTPC – Civil agencies delayed the bunkers, its structure and flooring works around the boiler, lot of obstructions were in carried out the boiler erections particularly unit#4. Civil agency was also using high reach crane for bunker erection, thus obstructing the movements of BHEL cranes & materials. In Unit#4, BHEL have to stop the erection activities between boiler & bunker bay to facilitate civil agency to complete the bunker bays. BHEL has to shift the materials several times to facilitate the civil agency complete the flooring works. The coordination with civil agency was very difficult. ASH SLURRY PIPE LINES LAYOUT: Ash slurry pipe lines of unit#3 are going through unit#4 and over ground, has restricted the movements of high reach cranes, hence cranes are to be de-mobilized and balance erection of approximate 4000MT were carried out with only electrical winches in unit#4. It has taken a longer time. CABLE & PIPE TRESTLES: The layout of the plant is such that pipe & cable trestles are going on both sides of boiler with an assumption that LHS drives cables are to be routed through LHS trestle & vice versa so that in case of any fire/ failure on either side, will not affect other side drives and unit can run at least at 50% load. Secondly NTPC did not allow the underground power cabling of ID fans for faster restoration in case of cable failure in future. All the HT/LT power & control cables of Mills, ID fan & other drives and ESP are going through these trestles; hence it was essential to erect the trestle before light up of boiler. It restricted the movements of the cranes. All the primary air ducting for mills is to be done with electrical winches as mills are installed in the rear side of boiler.

hence erection of boiler with additional 2500 MT in a contract stipulated period of 37 months became very difficult & contract period of erection agencies were to be extended. Cable vault. FLUE GAS CONDITIOING SKID. coupled with poor mobilization by the elevator erection agency. elevator erections are the last activities of the site (likely completion by March 2007). both the boiler agencies experienced the labour problem. But last minute TG equipment failures particularly in unit#4 contributed delays in completion of trial run operation. whether proof TG hall. manufacturing unit does not pay attention for the completion of such last supplies of design mistakes. Later on it was increased to 35600 MT per boiler. The workers slowed down work for almost 3 months and hence all the workers are to be retrenched and new manpower were to be deployed. After completion of trial run also. Initially 33100 MT envisaged per boiler & accordingly boiler erection agencies were issued the contract. The agency could not deploy the manpower for parallel works of lift. BHEL Trichy awarded the supply & erection contract to M/s Kone elevators. Site has to struggle for the items required for attending the equipment failures or received in damaged condition. HT/LT/MCC switch gear rooms. these are being installed first time in India by M/s Bachmann India Ltd through BHEL Ranipet for SOX Page 91 of 175 . This is peculiar problem faced in the end of the projects. but TG & electrical readiness matched with the boiler as lot of float is available in these areas. These items were received up to December 2006. ELEVATOTS. pump foundations etc) and material supplies like IP turbine & generator got delayed by more than 9 months. Manufacturing unit wash off their hands in case of equipment failures. TG & ELECTRICAL PACKAGES: Although civil fronts (TG deck approach. shortage or damage due to any reason once the supply is made. COMPLETION OF FACILITIES: BOILER: SUPPLIES FROM TRICHY. Floor grills & hand rail materials (350MT) got delayed abnormally by more than 24 months due to mismatch in drawing & shipping list quantities.LABOUR PROBLEMS: The site has faced labour problem in the initial stage of Boiler#3 erection and all the workers of M/s TPL agency had to be retrenched for smooth working. Transformer foundations. As numbers of project are in hand. The delay in civil works for machine rooms & pit by NTPC. INCREASE IN TONNAGE.

MISCELLANEOUS STRUCTURE: As per contract. MISCELLANOUS HOISTS & OFFSITE EOTs: Due to change in vendor. PEM had delayed abnormally in ordering the cables. 24 Kms of cables of various sizes were found short in the last stage.control & increase in efficiency of ESP. Page 92 of 175 . We have to pursue with agency for remobilization in December 2006 & complete the works. LT MODULES: PEM wrongly estimated the capacity of LT modules. Site also faced the labor problem during execution of ETP. first lot of fire sealing material was received only in December 2006 & work could be started only in the third week of Dec’06. EFFLUENT TREATMENT PLANT (ETP): The engineering clearance of ETP given only in March 2006. only selective points were released as 22 Km cables are yet to be received. then only civil works & supplies started. which are possible to be installed only in January 2007 by supplier M/s Control & Switch Gear. PEM SUPPLIES: CABLING: Due to wrong estimation of cables. during commissioning of handling system. The poor engineering and delayed steel supplies from SAIL & floor grills/ hand rail materials by erection agency. Cables likely to be received only in January 2007. the supplies of these systems were considerably delayed and also coupled with late availability of civil fronts. All the entry points could not be taken up immediately. STATION LIGHTING: Delay in receipt of hand rail posts of boiler#4 & late civil fronts of service building resulted in late completion of lighting works. The package could be commissioned only in November 2006 and stabilization & trial run will be completed by February 2007. EQUIPMENT HANDLING SYSTEM: Repeated failure of DSL trolley. the package completion & handing over remained the problem up to the last. erection agencies demobilized the site. hence no module was available for gates/ damper blowers & hoists in boiler. ETP boiler blow down pumps. PO could be placed only in the last week of November 2006. BHEL has to carry out the pipe/cable trestles/racks and platforms within the battery limit of main plant. The FGCS commissioning is possible only in January 2007. the handing over of system delayed. FIRE SEALING OF CABLE ENTRY: The engineering coupled with ordering delay. welding sockets & air conditioning equipments in service building etc are held up for long time.
