TÜV SÜD completes performance guarantee test for Kalisindh power plant
Ensure operational efficiency through periodic performance tests
TÜV SÜD has successfully completed Performance Guarantee (PG) tests on the Boiler, Turbine, Generator (BTG) package of the Kalisindh coal-fired thermal power plant in Jhalawar, Rajasthan, India. After successfully conducting, executing and calculating of the PG Test, TÜV SÜD submitted the final report to BGR Energy Systems Ltd as per ASME PTC Codes, Standards and compliance.
Kalisindh Thermal Power Project, Jhalawar is one of the seven coal based thermal power plants owned by Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (RRVUNL). BGR Energy Systems Limited was the EPC contractor and Tata Consulting Engineers Limited (TCE) was Witness Engineer of this project. As a part of the process followed for Performance Guarantee Testing, TÜV SÜD used their class “A” calibrated instruments with 7 Nos of DAQ (Data Acquisition System) along with their engineering testing team.
TÜV SÜD, recently set up a state-of-the-art performance testing center in India, installed with world class instruments capable of precision accuracy. This center will render performance guarantee and efficiency testing services, catering to India and the Asia Pacific belt.
TÜV SÜD has conducted following Performance Guarantee Tests (PGT) on the BTG (Boiler Turbine Generator) package of Kalisindh Power Plant as per the following ASME PTC standards
Boiler PG Test, as per ASME PTC 4.0 2008
Feed Water Heaters PG Test as per ASME PTC 12.1 - 2000
Boiler Feedwater Pump as per ISO 5198:1987(E)
Deaerator as per ASME PTC 12.3 - 2009
Coal Pulverizer PG Test as per ASME PTC 4.2
Turbine PG Test as per ASME PTC 6 - 2004
Condenser PG Test as per ASME 12.2 - 2010
Generator PG Test as per Part 1 – IEC 60034 – 1
As demand for energy increases in India and power plants also enhance their generation capacities, it is important for stakeholders in the conventional power sector to ensure operational efficiency through periodic overall performance tests.
