New Developments in Design & Construction of Transmission Lines" from 11 to 15 June, 2013
INTRODUCTION:The installed generating capacity in the Indian Power System is 211 GW at present and new capacity is continuously added. In spite of such capacity addition, we are unable to meet the peak demand and energy requirements and there are shortages
over 9%. In order to bridge these gaps in demand and supply, Government of India
has evolved an ambitious power development programme. In this programme more
attention is given to the development and strengthening of transmission systems so
as to supplement the shortcomings of the past.
The length of transmission system is expected to grow at a rapid rate for evacuation
of power generated due to new capacity additions. In order to build such magnitude
of transmission system, precise planning, costing, scheduling etc., would be
required. In meeting these challenging tasks, it is required to have trained personnel
in transmission line construction. With the advent of new materials such as alloy
conductors, polymer insulators etc. the capacity of the transmission corridors is
expected to grow by a wide mar

Energy Audit and Loss Reduction in T&D Systems" from 18 to 20 June, 2013
INTRODUCTION:Power system in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth during the last few
decades. Adhoc expansion of distribution network to meet the village electrification
has resulted in high distribution system losses. Reduction of losses is an important agenda for any transmission and distribution companies.
In order to identify the areas where power losses are relatively more in a transmission and distribution network, it is necessary to take-up energy audit as a first step. Based on this, an action plan for reduction of losses in a phased manner can be prepared by the organisations. It is well known that the losses comprise of both commercial and technical losses and reduction of both types of losses will be dealt with in detail in this programme.

for power in all sectors. At the same time, the reforms process has also started
percolating down in all the utilities at different rates. All the reforms are aimed at
making the power systems more efficient and reliable.
A well designed earthing system is necessary to ensure safety of personnel and
equipment and correct operation of protective devices during (i) earth faults in
electric systems (ii) lightning strikes on equipment / structures.
To disseminate the latest developments among professionals on how the earthing system should be designed and measurement of soil resistivity and earth electrode resistance and their interpretations.

Renovation & Modernization of Hydro Power Stations 25 - 29 June, 2013
In this present scenario of resource constraint and to tide over the shortage of
electricity in the country, life extension and uprating (RM&U) of existing old hydro
power projects considered the best option as this is cost effective and quicker to
achieve than setting up green field hydro power projects.
Good number of hydro power stations in the country are in service over long years.
To ensure better reliability and continuity of service of these plants, it is necessary to
asses their life through thorough testing. Life of various equipment in the station
such as Generators, Turbines and exciters is to be properly assessed and
renovation is to be taken up considering the technological developments and options
available. In view of the advantages available due to adoption of state of art
technologies, we need to go in to adopt these technologies effectively and efficiently.
Undertaking cost effective solutions for renovation and modernization, uprating and
life extension of the plants will go a long way in mitigating present critical power
situation in our country as uprating the old plants is cheaper compared to new units.Higher safety factors adopted in the design of old units makes it feasible to operate them more efficiently with minor changes

Distribution Substations and Lines - Current Construction and Best Practices in O&M" from 02 to 06 July, 2013
INTRODUCTION:Indian power system is characterized by generation capacity shortages, ever
increasing demand for energy utilization and very high level of T&D losses leading to
poor operational efficiency. Unless the Electric utilities adopt more efficient
techniques for construction, operation and maintenance of the distribution system,
there is little hope of running them efficiently and operating the system at reasonable
cost. System improvements are to be carried out by introduction of new technologies
in different areas of construction, operation and maintenance.
Electrical Power Engineers will therefore be distinguished by their ability to increase
operating efficiencies, adopt safety procedures and accident prevention practices, and develop sophisticated business relationships with even the smallest customers

Failure of Transformers and Remedial Measures" from 08 to 12 July, 2013
INTRODUCTION:The high rate of failure of transformers in electric utilities may perhaps be described
as one of the tragedies of the power sector in developing countries like India. Failure
of these simple, static, silent and efficient pieces of electrical equipment in such large
numbers cause great loss to the electric utilities both in terms of money and
The rapid expansion of power distribution systems in the country especially in rural
areas has enormously increased the demand for distribution transformers. A large
number of manufacturing units have come up in the country without adequate design
and testing capabilities. Maintenance practices followed in the organizations also
Severe and unhealthy competition among manufacturers, coupled with the anxiety of
the Power Utilities to hold the price line had led to lowering of quality in design and
manufacture. In advanced countries the price line remains at reasonable level and
quality is very good because of the continuous improvements made in design,
materials and manufacturing techniques.
The rapid expansion of power systems both in urban and rural areas coupled with the quality of transformers has been imposing a great burden on the operation and maintenance wings of power utilities.

Best Practices in O&M of ESPs 18 - 20 July, 2013
Electrostatic Precipitators of thermal power plants play a vital role in the O&M ofpower and cement plants. Due to the carbon based fuels, thermal plants are
responsible for a large fraction of CO2 emissions, which is a concern regarding
global warming. Emissions and dust may be reduced through more efficient and
latest technology by the best O&M practices of ESP’s in thermal power plants.
The high rate of failure of ESP’s in power plants especially in state utilities is a great
concern, as they cause enormous loss both in terms of money, pollution problems
and reputation. The maintenance practices followed is the need of the hour. It
becomes necessary to get maximum production out of the existing capacity and the
need to better management of existing equipment. This can be achieved by the best energy efficient practices of O&M.
ESCI has, therefore, thought it fit to conduct a 3 day programme on Energy
Efficiency in Operation & Maintenance in ESP’s with a view to provide a forum for
exchange of information and sharing of experience & expertise among engineers
involved in design, manufacturing, installation, O&M of power plant equipment. Such
interaction should pave the way for speedy introduction of best practices in O&M of ESP’s and enhance availability and free from pollution, conservation of energy and reduction of the cost of generation.
