Two months after this I got confirmation of my internship in Siemens from HR department of Siemens. management skills also count a lot along with your knowledge. Keeping all this in mind I applied in Siemens for internship. I realized that practical life is far different from what we learn from books. I started to contact my seniors and teachers for this. 4 . I started to search for the companies where my internship experience would be beneficial for me. As SIEMENS Lahore is a sales office so your communication skills and your convincing power also really matters because you have to convince your customers to buy your products. My teachers recommended me that SIEMENS is the better organization for me. During Two month of my internship. I started my internship at 1st April 2010 to May 31. In practical life. Lahore. 2010. As I have completed my MBA in 2009. My search ended at a few organizations in the end. Siemens was one of those organizations.Introduction I wanted to pursue internship in a reputed organization in 2010 despite of the fact that internship was a Learning part of my course. I got impressive comments about the company’s repute and brand name from my friends and from the internet also provided me with ample knowledge about the company. I wanted to gain some know how about practical work during studies before indulging into practical life completely. And this was my last chance to do this.

and IEEE standard General Purpose Transformers: 21 . Details about Siemens Transformers: Siemens transformers are completely static electrical devices which convert alternating current from one voltage level to another. Since no volts are required for installation.Siemens has following businesses  Transportation system  Information and communication  Automation and drives  Medical solutions  Power Transmission and Distribution  Industrial solutions and power generation SB Department There are so many departments in Siemens Lahore but I was assigned to do my internship in SB department. costly. This eliminates the need for long. switchboards. and supplies orders containing services of different projects. Siemens general purpose transformers meet applicable NEMA. circuit breakers. UL. They can increase (step-up) or decrease (stepdown) voltages. It deals with sales of transformers and the above mentioned devices. capacitors and so many etc. low voltage feeders. dry type transformers can be located right at the load to provide correct voltage for the application. control and relays panels. The main objective of this department is to provide goods and services. The transformer is used to match the voltage supply to the electrical load. This Deparment only deals with private sector of Pakistan and also This department provides different things like transformers (power &distribution transformers). ANSI.

transport and installation. Simple de-rating from a higher Kva will not satisfy the TP1 standards as the efficiency level is dependent on the combination of core (no-load) losses and I2R (winding) losses. installation and commissioning. For more than 100 years our technology has been state-of-theart. The Siemens power transformer product range comprises transformers for power stations. 240. voltage. They also comply with special national design requirements. A reliable power supply presupposes a sufficiently large supply with highperformance transformers. Standard distribution voltages are 600. type of cooling. and 240 volts. transformers substations. standard load voltages are 480. low noise level. and power loads from electrical distribution systems. including development. The world market of the future will continue to require high-power and high-voltage transformers. mode of operation. High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission systems. lighting. connection techniques. special transformers for industry and transport. reactors and accessories. 480.General purpose transformers are rated 600 volts and below for supplying appliance. TP1 Transformer: The TP1 designs include the use of higher grade electrical steel and other features designed to lower flux density and reduce losses especially at average 35% loading where the TP1 measurements apply. To meet TP1 the design engineer must consider both the I2R losses and the core or iron loses. The high-quality standards set by Siemens are appreciated throughout the world. and 120 volts.

Performance Highlights (2009) New Orders New orders of Rs. This significant reduction in new order value is mainly attributable to two factors. Firstly. Secondly. the local market also witnessed a dull situation not only because of the financial Crisis but also due to the domestic economic and Political conditions. 16 billion have been Received during the year showing a Diminution of 69% over last year. in the previous Year we were able to secure extraordinary order Intake due to boom in the UAE market. Sales turnover The Company was able to achieve the highest turnover volume in its history as the turnover reached to Rs 36 billionshowing an increase of 34% over previous year mainly due to projects being undertaken in the energy 25 . In the current year we were not able to secure any major order.
