PAKISTAN is one of the developing countries, where always remaining the deficiency of the power like those of other developing countries, so for this purpose KOT A ! T"#$%A& PO'#$ STATION pro(ect was initiated in )*+, -y 'AP A with the purpose to fulfil the increasing demand of electricity in PAKISTAN. Installing the latest technology completed this power pro(ect. In )**/ following the policy of privatisation 0#NA1I$ 2O3#$N%#NT privatised this power station. NATIONA& PO'#$ 4a !K -ased company5 gave the highest -id, a-out $S 6+ -illion to purchase 7/8 shares of this powerhouse. Thus a company named KAP9O -ecame the owner of this thermal station -ecause according to the contract the management of this organisation was transferred to KAP9O. &ater on KAP9O purchased ):8 more shares from 'AP A. SO now KAP9O is having ;/8 shares of this powerhouse with total management control.

About The Plant:

The gas tur-ines, despite of their low installation cost, easy and speedy erection and high rate, perhaps could not win the deserving popularity over the steam tur-ines due to the poor efficiency. In the conventional gas tur-ine unit, su-stantial amount of heat energy was lost through the tur-ine e>haust gases, which leave the tur-ine at a-out 6+: degree centigrade. To make use of this wasteful energy, an innovative concept of the com-ined cycle plant, now has -een introduced -y the gas tur-ine manufacturers. !nder this design, the e>haust of the gas tur-ine is made to pass through a conduction type -oiler. The high=pressure steam so generated is then used to run the steam tur-ine, which thus produces power without any fuel. This raises the plant efficiency to nearly A78 against the 7+8 of the conventional gas tur-ine. 2enerally a com-ined cycle plant comprises of two gas tur-ines and one steam tur-ine. ?or relia-ility of machines, each gas tur-ine is provided with e>haust gases control dampers. These dampers lead the got gases into the -oiler or to the atmosphere as per operation mode of the machine. 'ith this provision, the gas tur-ine can -e run in single cycle mode if the associated steam tur-ine is under maintenance or unavaila-le due to some other reason.



There are many different types of power plants including thermal power plants and hydel power plants. Thermal power plants -urn fuel such as 2as, "S , ?urnace Oil or nuclear fuel to produce heat energy that is converted to electrical energy through a series of intermediate processes. "ydel power plants convert the potential energy of water to electrical power as it flows from higher to lower elevations.


The BtraditionalB thermal power plant is the $ankine cycle plant, named after the man who invented the cycle. A power plant cycle is a series of processes in which a fluid, generally waterCsteam, is used to convert heat energy to mechanical energy. The $ankine cycle in its simplest form consists of a -oiler, a tur-ine, a condenser, and a -oiler feed pump. #arly plants had thermal efficiencies of appro>imately 768 to ;:8. Only 768 to ;:8 of the heat energy in the fuel -urned in these plants was converted to electrical energy. The rest was lost in various ways. The $ankine cycle has -een refined considera-ly over the years and made more efficient -y the addition of components like #conomi<er, ?eedwater heaters, Superheaters and $eheaters. The efficiency of the $ankine cycle has also -een improved -y increasing the pressure and temperature of the cycle. The laws of thermodynamics and considerations such as material limitations have prevented any significant improvement since then. Power plants commonly use heat rate to measure efficiency. "eat rates in KAP9O power plant on different fuels are shown in ta-le ). Thus, heat rate shows the amount of heat in k@Ckwh that is reDuired to produce a kilowatt=hour of electrical energy. Thermal efficiency can -e converted to heat rate -y using the conversion factor given -elow.The heat rate of the KAP9O 2eneration 9omple> varies -etween A:8 to AA8. Thermal efficiency depending on fuel selection and am-ient conditions.

the com-ined cycle can -e represented -y (oining the high temperature 0rayton cycle with the moderate pressure and temperature $ankine cycle. 9om-ined cycle plants can achieve these high efficiencies -ecause much of the heat e>haust from the gas tur-ine4s5 is captured and used in the $ankine cycle portion of the plant.

The heat from the e>haust gases would normally -e lost to the atmosphere in an open cycle gas tur-ine.2 • 2hy co/bined cycle is pre*erable:& One of the principal reasons for the popularity of the com-ined cycle power plants is their high thermal efficiency.9om-ine cycle refers to a power plant in which a gas tur-ine is integrated with a steam tur-ine cycle unit.

There is one important difference -etween an A9 and 9 generator. In 9 2enerator the armature rotates -ut the field system remains stationary -ut in A9 generator the case is reverse -ecause here armature remains stationary -ut field winding rotates. The general thing to keep in mind in this reference is that armature is a thing which produces alternating magnetic field. So in 9 this magnetic field is -eing produced -y rotor which is called the armature and in A9 this remains stationary and here it is called the stator. The stator consists of a cast iron frame which supports the armature core having slots on its inner periphery for housing the armature conductors. In a slip ring induction machine the rotor winding terminals are coming out and then they are supplied with a 9 supply to produce the stationary magnetic field which is converted into the rotating magnetic field -y rotating the rotor -y an e>ternal source which is called the prime mover. 'hen the rotor rotates, the stator conductors are cut -y magnetic flu>, hence they have an induced #%? produced in them. As magnetic poles are alternately N and S, they induce an #%? and hence current starts flowing in armature conductors, which first flows in one direction and then in the other.

%ainly two isolators are used for the protection of -reaker. Fig Isolators 536 Insulation Strin) ItLs main purpose is to provide the insulation -etween the transmission line.

As very high amount of current is flowing through the line so we canLt measure such a -ig amount of current -y simple ammeters. if not then 71 . %etering And the forth one is A. it counts current flowing through them to ensure that whether the current is flowing in the limited region or not. Protection of the relays and -reakers etc. -ecause it is (ust like a see of electrical power in which all rivers 42enerators5 are supplying water 4Power5 and some rivers 4Power5 are taking water 4Power5 out of it. This is the line to which all generator are connected and supplying there power. for the 0reaker failure protection. Similarly for the protection of relays. Similarly we can say that if ) amp current is flowing in secondary of 9T then itLs mean that 7A:: or /:: amp are flowing in the primary of it. Fig 228 k' Bus Bar 5 6 Current Trans*or/er There are five ciols of 9T and three -asic purposes of using 9T. . 7. So. we use 9T which gives output in ratio like 7A::C) or /::C) or 7AC) which means that if suppose 7A:: amperes current is flowing then it will give the output as ) ampere. 'e can take out or in it the reDuired power. ?or e>ample the load side. then the si<e and the cost of that meter will -e very -ig costly respectively. This is the line or -us -ar which is connected to the our national 77: kv -us -ar forming ring main system. Power is delivered to any area only through this -us -ar.

As KAP9O or any generating company is also supplying energy to the 'AP A. Circuit *iagram of PT Fig PT 72 . So we use 9T for this purpose of metering. Similarly. then it counts current and sends information to distance protection relay to operate it earlier which is nearest to the fault and similarly to send information to the over current relay to make itLs operation. so it is to count that energy which is given to 'AP A and to take the charges from them.make the relay isolated from the system with the help of the of the Isolator. if -y chance there occurs a fault in transmission line.

we keep on checking for the low voltage and the high voltage. 'e have to use P.T.

Similarly there are many other types of the relays which we will discuss later.
