2. About 33/11KV substation Tatya Tope Nagar Substation

In T.T Nagar this substation is powered by 132KV S/S Barra-8 where

132KV is step down to 33KV and then fed to the Tatya Tope Nagar with the help of bus-

bar this bus-bar is given to the Power Transformer into the primary side and this 33KV is

further step down to the 11KV. With the parallel of 33KV bus-bar lightning arrester are

also connected to protect the bus-bar. This 11KV is given to the switchgear box in the

incoming chamber when this 11KV is given to the incomer then there is trolley in the

incomer chamber which is to be up to supply the power to the next chamber, with this

chamber several feeders are connected in Tatya Tope Nagar S/S with this feeder 16

villages are connected. This supply is provided to Meharbaan Singh Purva, Ambedkar

Nagar, and Tatya Tope Nagar etc.

From here 33KV is also provided to Meharbaan Singh Purva S/S.

3. Visit of 132/33KV Armapur S/S

132/33KV Armapur S/S is come under “Uttar Pradesh Power

Transmission Corporation Ltd.” This S/S is only for giving the supply to the “Kanpur

Ordinance Factory”.

In this S/S 132KV is step down to the 33KV and then give it to the ‘OFC’. Here two 132KV

main lines are taken as I/P from Panki Thermal power plant than with this line ‘LA’ is

attached after two PT’s are attached in parallel, after PT’s two CT’s are attached in series

here in this S/S two PT’s & CT’s are use because first PT is of KESCO department and

second PT is of OFC Armapur S/S same as concept is used is CT’s also. After this bus bar is

used again ‘LA’ is connected on further connections after this SF6 circuit breaker is used, this

is done with both the lines, after this insulators are connected now this 132KV is then give to

PT of rating 20MVA and converted to 33KV, in this PT oil circuit breaker are used with

buchholz relay is used for this transformer protection. Then again insulator’s, PT’s, CT’s and

bus bar are used for further supply before this 33KV is given to the OFC Vacuum circuit

breaker is also used.

This S/S is fully automatic and these all equipment are also controlled

through control room. So before doing any kind of maintenance it is close it from the control

room then also through isolator’s and if any maintenance in doing on C.B’s then there is an

special feature to close it from there also.

On the last day of my training. I get this opportunity to see the 132/33KV

Armapur S/S. This S/S is installed in 2006 and give its service from 2007 this is Kanpur’s

first S/S with latest all technology. All the equipment which is used in this S/S are well

grounded and fully protected.

4. Electric Supply System

The conveyance of electric power from a power station to consumer’s

premises is known as electric supply system.

An electric supply system consists of three principal component, power

station, transmission lines, and distribution system. Electric power is produced at the power

stations which are located at favourable places, generally quite away from consumers. It is

then transmitted over large distances to load centres with the help of conductors known as

transmission lines. Finally, it is distributed to large number of small and big consumers

through a distribution network.

5. Electrical Substation

A substation is a part of an electrical generation, transmission and

distribution system. Substation transforms voltage from high to low, or the reverse, or

performs any of several other important functions. Between the generation station and

consumer, electric power may flow through several S/S at different voltage level.

shubham sachan

Page 13: Training report by shubham sachan

5

S/S may be owned and operated by an electrical utility, or may be owned

by a large industrial or commercial customer. Generally Substation is unattended, relying on

SCADA for remote supervision and control.

A S/S may include transformers to change voltage level between high

transmission voltage and lower distribution voltage, or at the interconnection of two different

transmission voltage.

As this project report is based on 33/11 KV Distribution S/S, Tatya Tope

Nagar, Kanpur; so what are the component used in this Substation are described below.

5.1. Type of substation

i. Transmission Substation

A transmission S/S connects two or more transmission lines. The

simplest case is where all transmission lines have the same voltage in such case, S/S contain

high-voltage switch that that allow lines to connected or isolated for fault clearance or

maintenance. A Transmission Station may have transformer to convert between two

transmission voltage, voltage control power factor correction device such as capacitor,

reactors or static VAR compensator.

ii. Distribution Substation

A distribution S/S transforms power from the transmission system

to the distribution system of an area. It is an economical to directly connect electricity

shubham sachan

Page 14: Training report by shubham sachan

6

consumers to the main transmission network, unless they use large amount of power, so the

distribution station reduces voltage to a suitable for local distribution.

The input for a distribution S/S is typically at least two

transmission or sub transmission lines. Input voltage may be, for example, 115 KV,

Distribution voltage are typically medium voltage, between 2.4KV and 33KV depending on

the size of the area.

iii. Collector Substation

In distributed generation projects such as a wind farm, a collector

S/S is required. It resembles a distribution S/S although power flow in the opposite direction,

from many wind turbines up into the transmission grid. Usually for economy of construction

the collector system operate around 35kv and the collector S/S steps up voltage to

transmission voltage grid.

5.2. According to the service requirement

i. Transformer S/S

ii. Switch S/S

iii. Power Factor Correction S/S

iv. Frequency Change S/S

v. Converting S/S

vi. Industrial S/S

5.3. Classification of Substation

A S/S has many components e.g. C.B, switches, fuses etc. S/S is

classified as:

i. Indoor Substation

These type of S/S are used for voltage up to 11KV, the equipment

of the S/S is installed because of economical consideration.

ii. Outdoor Substation

Voltage beyond 66KV as the name suggest these are installed

outside, It is because for high voltage, the clearance between conductor and the space

shubham sachan

Page 15: Training report by shubham sachan

7

required for switches, C.B and other equipment become so great that it is not economical to

installed the equipment indoor.

iii. Under Grounded Substation

In thickly populated areas, the space available for equipment is

limited and the cost of land is too high. Under such situation, the S/S is created

underground.

shubham sachan

Page 16: Training report by shubham sachan

8

iv. Pole-mounted Substation

This is outdoor S/S with equipment installed over head on H-pole

or 4-pole structure it is cheapest from S/S for voltage not exceeding 11KV.

6. Conductors

In physics and in electrical engineering, a conductor is an object

or type of material which permits the flow of electrical charges from one direction to other.

In metals like Aluminium and copper the movable charged particle are electrons.

* Aluminium in place of copper

a. Much lower cost

b. Lighter in weight

c. Larger in diameter

d. Low voltage gradient less ionization and corona

6.1. Type of conductor used in S/S

i. AAC- All Aluminium Conductor

AAC are used in primary for overhead

transmission and also for primary and secondary distribution, where capacity must be

maintained and a lighter conductor is desired, and when conductor strength is not a critical

shubham sachan

Page 17: Training report by shubham sachan

9

factor. Class B, Class C are used primary as bus, apparatus connectors and jumpers, where

additional flexibility is required.

ii. AAAC-All Aluminium Alloy Conductor

Used as bare overhead conductor for primary

and secondary distribution. Designed utilizing a high-strength aluminium alloy to achieve a

high strength to weight ratio; afford good sag ratio.

iii. ACSR-Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced

Used as bare overhead conductor for primary

and secondary distribution conductor and distribution conductor. ACSR offers optimal

strength for line design.

iv. ACAR-Aluminium Conductor Aluminium Alloy Reinforced

Used as bare overhead conductor for primary

and secondary distribution cable. A good strength to weight ratio makes ACAR application

where both ampacity and strength are prime considerations in line design.

v. ABC lines-Aerial Bundled conductor

Aerial bundled cables simply called ABC

are overhead power lines using several insulated phase conductors bundled tightly together,

usually with a bare neutral conductor.

6.2. Conductors Used In S/S Design

An ideal conductor should fulfil the following requirements:

1. Should Capable of carrying the specific load.

2. Should be corona free at rated voltage.

3. Should have the minimum number of joints.

4. Should need the minimum number of supporting insulators.

5. Should be economic.

* Most suitable material for conductor system is copper or aluminium.

7. Transformer

A Transformer is a static electrical device that transfers energy by

inductive coupling between its winding circuits. A varying current in the primary winding

creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer core and thus a varying magnetic flux

through the secondary winding. The varying magnetic flux induces a varying electromotive

force or voltage in the secondary winding.

7.1. Current Transformer

Current transformers are basically used to take the readings of the

currents entering the S/S. This transformer steps down the current from 800 amps to 1 amp.

This is done because we have no instrument for measuring of such a large current. The main

use of this transformer is:

a. Distance Protection

b. Backup Protection

c. Measurement

A current transformer is defined as an instrument transformer in

which the secondary current is substantially proportional to the primary current and differs in

phase from it by an angle which is approximately zero for an appropriate direction of the

connections. This highlights the accuracy requirement of the current transformer but also

important is the isolating function, which means no matter what the system voltage the

secondary circuit need to be insulated only for a low voltage.

The current transformer works on the principle of variable flux.

In the ideal current transformer, secondary current would be exactly equal and opposite to the

primary current. But, as in the voltage transformer, some of the primary current or the

primary ampere-turns are utilized for magnetizing the core, thus leaving less than the actual

primary ampere turns to be transformed into the secondary ampere-turns. This naturally

shubham sachan

Page 19: Training report by shubham sachan

11

introduces an error in the transformation. The error is classified into current ratio error and

the phase error.

7.2. Potential Transformer

There are two potential transformers used in the bus connected

both side of the bus. The potential transformer uses a bus isolator to protect itself. The main

use of this transformer is to measure the voltage through the bus. This is done so as to get the

detail information of the voltage passing through the bus to the instrument. There are two

main parts in it

a. Measurement b. Protection

The standards define a voltage transformer as one in which the

secondary voltage is substantially proportional to the primary voltage and differs in phase

from it by an angle which is approximately equal to zero for an appropriate direction of the

connections. This in essence means that the voltage transformer has to be as close as possible

to the ideal transformer.

In an ideal transformer, the secondary voltage vector is exactly

opposite and equal to the primary voltage vector when multiplied by the turn’s ratio.

In a practical transformer, errors are introduced because some

current is drawn for the magnetization of the core and because of drops in the primary and

secondary windings due to leakage reactance and winding resistance. One can thus talk of a

voltage error which is the amount by which the voltage is less than the applied primary

voltage and the phase error which is the phase angle by which the reversed secondary voltage

vector is displaced from the primary voltage vector.

CVT- Capacitor Voltage Transformer is a part of Power Transformer

A capacitor voltage transformer (CVT) is a transformer used in

power systems to step-down extra high voltage signals and provide low voltage signals either

shubham sachan

Page 20: Training report by shubham sachan

12

for measurement or to operate a protective relay. In its most basic form the device consists of

three parts: two capacitors across which the voltage signal is split, an inductive element used

to tune the device to the supply frequency and a transformer used to isolate and further step-

down the voltage for the instrumentation or protective relay. The device has at least four

terminals, a high-voltage terminal for connection to the high voltage signal, a ground terminal

and at least one set of secondary terminals for connection to the instrumentation or protective

relay. CVTs are typically single-phase devices used for measuring voltages in excess of one

hundred kilovolts where the use of voltage transformers would be uneconomical. In practice

the first capacitor, C1, is often replaced by a stack of capacitors connected in series.

This results in a large voltage drop across the stack of capacitors that replaced the first

capacitor and a comparatively small voltage drop across the second capacitor, C2, and hence

the secondary terminals.

7.3. Auto Transformer

A Single phase Auto Transformer is a one winding transformer in

which a part of the winding is common on both high voltage and low voltage side.

A step down transformer is one in which the primary voltage is

greater than the secondary voltage vice versa for step up transformer on which secondary

voltage is greater than the primary voltage.

7.4. Power Transformer

A transformer is a device that transfers electrical energy from one

circuit to another by electromagnetic induction (also called transformer action). It is most

often used to step up or step down voltage

shubham sachan

Page 21: Training report by shubham sachan

13

8. Megger

The Megger is a portable instrument used to measure

insulation resistance. The Megger consists of a hand-driven DC generator and a direct

reading ohm meter.

9. Transformer Cooling

When the transformer is an operation heat is generated due to

iron losses the removal of heat is called cooling.

9.1. Air Natural Cooling

In a dry of self-cooled transformers, the natural circulation of

surrounding air is used for its cooling. This type of cooling is suitable for low voltage small

transformer.

9.2. Air Blast Cooling

It is similar to that of dry type self-cooled transformers with to

addition that continuous blast of filtered cool air is forced through the core and winding for

better cooling.

9.3. Oil Natural Cooling

For medium and large rating have their winding and core

immersed in oil, which act as both cooling medium as well as insulating medium.

9.4. Oil Blast Cooling

In this type of cooling, forced air is directed over cooling

elements of transformers immersed in oil.

9.5. Forced Oil and Water Cooling

In this type of cooling oil flow with water cooling of the oil in

external water heat exchanger takes place. The water is circulated in cooling tubes in the heat

exchanger.

shubham sachan

Page 22: Training report by shubham sachan

10. Transformer Protection

Transformers are totally enclosed static devices and generally oil

immersed. Therefore chance of fault occurring on them are rare, however the consequence of

even a rare fault may be very serious unless the transformer is quickly disconnected the faulty

system. This provides accurate automatic protection for protection against fault.

10.1. Conservator and Breather

When oil expands or contracts by the change in the temperature, oil

level goes either up or down in main tank. A conservator is used to maintain the oil level up

to predetermined value in the transformer main tank by placing it above the level of the top of

the tank.

Breather is connected to conservator tank for the purpose of

extracting moisture as it spoils the insulating properties of the oil. During the contraction and

expansion of oil air is drawn in or out through breather silica gel crystals impregnated with

cobalt chloride. Silica gel is checked regularly and dried and replace when necessary.

10.2. Marshalling Box

It has two meter which indicate the temperature of the oil and

winding of main tank. If temperature of oil or winding exceeds than specific value, then relay

operates to sound an alarm. If there is further increase in temperature than relay completes the

trip circuit to open the circuit breaker protect the transformer.

shubham sachan

Page 23: Training report by shubham sachan

15

10.3. Insulating Material

Insulation is one of the most important constituent of a transformer.

The durability and stability of the transformer depends upon the proper utilization of

insulating materials in it. In transformers mainly three basically insulating materials are used.

i. Transformer oil

ii. Insulating paper

iii. Press board

Of the three, the major insulating material used is transformer oil.

11. Transformer Tap Changing

Transformer tap changing is latest technology which is used now a

day’s, this technology is come into picture after lots of damage. Tap changing means to set

the transformer winding into certain no to get the output voltage basically tap winding are

depend on manufacturer, most of manufacturer set there tap winding at ‘5’ this gives us

33KV as O/P some of tap winding voltage are as follows

Tap Winding Voltage

1 31476.0 V

2 31486.5 V

3 32787.8 V

4 32988.4 V

5 33000.0 V

6 33406.6 V

7 34608.7 V

8 34954.2 V

9 35226.2 V

10 35828.6 V

11 36458.2 V

12 36958.3 V

13 37406.1 V

shubham sachan

Page 24: Training report by shubham sachan

16

At tap 5 winding we get 33KV but after some time its efficiency will

reduce and it give O/P less than 33KV then we have to set them at tap winding level ‘6’

which actual O/P is 33406.6 V but at this we get 33KV as O/P similarly as follows but at

some time when it reach at tap level ‘8’ the transformer service will not take and it should be

repair for further use. Actually these values are ideally but they are approximately same.

12. Isolator

Isolator is the devices used to protect the S/S from any fault on the

incoming feeder. When any fault occur then operating handle will make open so the contact

of isolator will open and this way we can protect the transformer from any damage.

13. Grounding System

A connection made with a conductor, whether intentional or accidental,

by which an electric circuit or equipment is connected to earth, or to some conducting body

of relatively large extent, which serves in place of the earth. For mankind nature has provided

“EARTH” as the single largest grounding conductor.

shubham sachan

Page 25: Training report by shubham sachan

17

Grounding Systems Serve Four Main Functions

Equipment or Safety Grounding.

System Grounding.

Lightning Protection System Grounding.

Neutral Grounding

13.1. System Grounding

The process of connecting some electrical part of the system to earth is

called System Grounding.

13.2. Neutral Grounding

The process of connecting neutral point of 3-phase system to earth either

directly or through some circuit element is called neutral grounding.

14. Method of Neutral Grounding

14.1. Solid Grounding

When the neutral point of 3-phase system is directly connected to the earth

through a negligible resistance or reactance is known as solid grounding.

Advantage

The neutral is effectively held at earth potential.

It becomes easier to protect the system from earth fault.

shubham sachan

Page 26: Training report by shubham sachan

18

When there is an earth fault on any phase of the system the phase to earth voltage of

the faulty phase becomes zero.

* This type of system grounding is used for voltage up to 33KV.

14.2. Resistance Grounding

When neutral point of the system is connected to the ground to

earth through Resistance is called Resistance Grounding.

It improves the stability of the system.

The earth fault is small due to the presence of earthing resistance.

* It is used on a system operating at voltage between 2.2KV and 33KV.

14.3. Reactance Grounding

In this system a reactance is inserted between the neutral and

ground. The purpose of reactance is to limit the earth fault.

14.4. Resonant Grounding

When the value of L of arc suppression coil is such that the

fault current If exactly balance the capacitive current Ic, It is called resonant grounding. This

type of grounding is called Peterson Coil Grounding.

The Peterson Coil is completely effectively in preventing any damage by an arcing

ground.

The Peterson Coil has the advantage of ungrounded neutral system.

15. Capacitor Bank

The load on the power system is varying being high during

morning and evening which increases the magnetization current. This results in the

decreased power factor. The low power factor is mainly due to the fact most of the power

loads are inductive and therefore taking lagging current. The low power factor is highly

undesirable as it causes increases the current, resulting in additional losses. In order to

improve the power factor come devices taking leading power should be connected in

shubham sachan

Page 27: Training report by shubham sachan

19

parallel with load. One of such devices can de capacitor bank. The capacitor draws a

leading current and partly or completely neutralizes the lagging reactive component of

load current.

16. Lightning Arresters

Lightening arrestors are the instrument that are used in the incoming

feeders so that to prevent the high voltage entering the main station. This high voltage is very

dangerous to the instruments used in the S/S. Even the instruments are very costly, so to

prevent any damage lightening arrestors are used. The lightening arrestors do not let the

lightening to fall on the station. If some lightening occurs the arrestors pull the lightening and

ground it to the earth. In any S/S the main important is of protection which is firstly done by

these lightening arrestors. The lightening arrestors are grounded to the earth so that it can pull

the lightening to the ground. The lightening arrestor works with an angle of 30° to 45°

making a cone.

17. Main Bus-Bars

The bus is a line in which the incoming feeders come into and get into

the instruments for further step up or step down. The first bus is used for putting the incoming

feeders in la single line. There may be double line in the bus so that if any fault occurs in the

one the other can still have the current and the supply will not stop. The two lines in the bus

shubham sachan

Page 28: Training report by shubham sachan

20

are separated by a little distance by a conductor having a connector between them. This is so

that one can work at a time and the other works only if the first is having any fault.

A bus bar in electrical power distribution refers to thick strips of copper or

aluminium that conduct electricity within a switchboard, distribution board, S/S, or other

electrical apparatus. The size of the bus bar is important in determining the maximum amount

of current that can be safely carried. Bus bars are typically either flat strips or hollow tubes as

these shapes allow heat to dissipate more efficiently due to their high surface area to

cross sectional area ratio. The skin effect makes 50-60 Hz AC bus bars more than about 8

mm (1/3 in) thick inefficient, so hollow or flat shapes are prevalent in higher current

Applications. A hollow section has higher stiffness than a solid rod of equivalent current

carrying capacity, which allows a greater span between bus bar supports in outdoor

switchyards. A bus bar may either be supported on insulators or else insulation may

completely surround it. Bus bars are protected from accidental contact either by a metal

enclosure or by elevation out of normal reach.

18. Wave Trap

Reliable & fast communication is necessary for safe efficient & economical

power supply. To reduce the power failure in extent & time, to maintain the interconnected

grid system in optimum working condition to coordinate the operation of various generating

unit communication network is indispensable for state electricity board.

Wave trap is an instrument using for tripping of the wave. The function of

this trap is that it traps the unwanted waves. Its function is of trapping wave. Its shape is like

a drum. It is connected to the main incoming feeder so that it can trap the waves which may

be dangerous to the instruments here in the S/S.

19. Switchgear

In an electric power system, switchgear is the combinations of electrical

disconnect switches; fuses or C.B’s used to control, protect and isolate electrical equipment.

Switchgear is used both to de-energize equipment to allow work to be done and to clear

faults downstream. This type of equipment is directly linked to the reliability of

the electricity supply.

20. Batteries

DC Battery and Charger

All but the smallest S/S include auxiliary power supplies. AC power is

required for S/S building small power, lighting, heating and ventilation, some

communications equipment, switchgear operating mechanisms, anti-condensation heaters and

motors. DC power is used to feed essential services such as C.B trip coils and associated

relays, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and communications equipment.

This describes how these auxiliary supplies are derived and explains how to specify such

equipment. It has Single 100% battery and 100% charger, Low capital cost, No standby DC

System outage for maintenance. Need to isolate battery/charger combination from load under

boost charge conditions in order to prevent high boost voltages.

21. Fuse

A fuse is a short piece of wire or thin strip which melts when excessive

current through it for sufficient time. It is inserted in series with the circuit under normal

operating condition; the fuse element is at a nature below its melting point. Therefore it

carries the normal load current overheating. It is worthwhile to note that a fuse performs both

detection and interruption functions.

22. Circuit Breaker

A circuit breaker can make or break a circuit either manually or

automatically under no load, full load or short circuit conditions.

Circuit Breaker is of types

22.1. Oil Circuit Breaker

A high-voltage C.B in which the arc is drawn in oil to dissipated the heat

and extinguished the arc; the intense heat of the arc decomposes the oil, generating a gas

whose high pressure produces a flow of fresh fluid through the arc furnishes the necessary

insulation to prevent a restrike of the arc.

shubham sachan

Page 31: Training report by shubham sachan

23

22.2. Vacuum Circuit Breaker

In Vacuum C.B the production of arc is produced between

the contacts by the ionisation of metal vapour of contact, however the arc is quickly

extinguished because the metallic vapour, electrons and ions produced during arc rapidly

condense on the surface of the C.B contacts, resulting in quick recovery of dielectric strength.

As soon as the arc is produced in vacuum, it is quickly extinguished due to the fast rate of

recovery of dielectric strength in vacuum.

22.3. SF6 Circuit Breaker Air

In this hexafluoride gas is used as arc quenching medium.

The SF6 is an electro-negative gas and has a strong tendency to absorb free electrons.

24

Internal Structure of SF6 C.B

Pressure of this C.B is placed at 6, below this pressure this

C.B will not work, Red light indicate that this C.B is working and green show it is not in use.

22.4. Air Blast Circuit Breaker

Air is used as an arc quenching medium. This is multi break

constructions, simple assembly, modest maintenance are some of the main features of air

blast C.B.

Compressors are necessary to maintain high air pressure in

the air receiver. The air blast C.B is basically used in railways and arc furnaces, where

breaker operates repeatedly.

23. Motivation

As we know electricity is our basic need without electricity nothing can be

happened in today’s life, also know about how generation is happened and what the basic

requirements of electricity.

My training’s most interesting part is my 132/33KV S/S visit where I learnt

about latest technology this S/S is fully automatic and it use all latest equipment like C.B like

SF6 and Vacuum C.B’s and how the protect the equipment’s installed in the S/S.

In the field of generation there is huge scope for carrier point of view as solar energy is an

another source through this generation can be happened.

I am highly obliged to J.E, SSO’s of substation as they guided me very well, as

what I learned through my text books to implement in real life is quite different and it is very

interesting. Practical knowledge is very important, through this training I can now able to

describe my theoretical more precisely and with great innovation. J.E of my S/S also guided

me related to my future as he motivates me about my knowledge and also he encourages me

to learn new things.

Most important, after doing work in this it rise my interest to doing work in this

field.

At last I am highly thankful to my Teachers, J.E, SSO’s the guide me very well

and they help to make my training successful.

24. Learning Outcomes

Now from this report I can learn understand that electricity plays an

important role in our daily life. We are made aware of how the transmission of electricity is

to be done not only transmission but also distribution, and also learn about various part of the

substation.

In additional, I gained a good experience in term of self-confidence, real life

working situation, interactions among people in the same field.

I had an interest in understanding basic engineering work, it is a small S/S

but I think nothing is small or big, S/S is act as a mediator between generation and consumer,

I also learn how to interact with local people with their problems regard electricity supply and

connections. To work with big industry first we should start with the very beginning related

to that field, it give us knowledge as well as experience, it help us to know and resolve the

problem more effectively and gently.

This training experience will help me in future while doing job in the related

field.

TT Nagar S/S is look like:

shubham sachan

Tatya Tope Nagar Sub-Sation

Page 35: Training report by shubham sachan

27

Visit of 132/33KV substation give me more knowledge about

distribution how distribution is happen, this is done by me under guidance of J.E of T.T

Nagar substation as he tell me about 132KV substation.

As 132/33KV Armapur S/S is come under “Uttar Pradesh Power

Transmission Corporation Ltd.” This S/S is only for giving the supply to the “Kanpur

Ordinance Factory”.

In this S/S 132KV is step down to the 33KV and then give it to the ‘OFC’. Here two 132KV

main lines are taken as I/P from Panki Thermal power plant than with this line ‘LA’ is

attached after two PT’s are attached in parallel, after PT’s two CT’s are attached in series

here in this S/S two PT’s & CT’s are use because first PT is of KESCO department and

second PT is of OFC Armapur S/S same as concept is used is CT’s also. After this bus bar is

used again ‘LA’ is connected on further connections after this SF6 circuit breaker is used, this

is done with both the lines, after this insulators are connected now this 132KV is then give to

PT of rating 20MVA and converted to 33KV, in this PT oil circuit breaker are used with

buchholz relay is used for this transformer protection. Then again insulator’s, PT’s, CT’s and

bus bar are used for further supply before this 33KV is given to the OFC Vacuum circuit

breaker is also used.

This S/S is fully automatic and these all equipment are also controlled

through control room. So before doing any kind of maintenance it is close it from the control

room then also through isolator’s and if any maintenance in doing on C.B’s then there is an

special feature to close it from there also.

On the last day of my training. I get this opportunity to see the 132/33KV

Armapur S/S. This S/S is installed in 2006 and give its service from 2007 this is Kanpur’s

first S/S with latest all technology. All the equipment which is used in this S/S are well

grounded and fully protected.

Future Scope: Two main drivers for Vattenfall are customer satisfaction and

environment protection. High availability in power supply and good power quality are

required for future satisfaction of the customers. It will be essential to understand the

customer needs and to increase the reliability.

Lack of land will demand an effective land usage. Therefore a

modular compact structure of the substation is necessary. In urban or in environmentally bad

shubham sachan

Page 36: Training report by shubham sachan

28

affected areas the future substation will be installed indoor or underground. A solid-state

substation may consist of equipment placed in containers. Indoor installations increase the

reliability and provide better working facilities.

In the future it can be difficult to find the right competences of operating

and maintenance staff, hence the simplicity of the station will be very important. The used

technique must also be safe and simple to handle and be well documented.

Cables will be more common for connection between substations. Also

position of the substation is simplified with cable connection. Cable connections are therefore

generally foreseen. Real-time estimation and adaption in control and protection systems will

be possible.

The change in load and load patterns will require a flexible substation. It

must be able to take care of distributed generation and reversed transfer of power.

The future substation must have low environmental impact. A compact

design is recommended. It shall produce as low noise as possible, and also be environmental

friendly in terms of chemical aspects. Chemicals, oil and gases, shall be avoided.

Economically: The price on distribution and transmission must be as low as possible,

resulting in a demand for a cost effective substation. The need and costs for maintenance are

predicted to decrease, as well as the total investment costs. This can be achieved by adapting

simple solutions, which make it easy to install and maintain the substation. The maintenance

shall be as low as possible i.e. the installation shall be maintenance free. In order to reduce

costs, alternatives to metal should be considered. Composite may be an alternative. The used

material must have a reasonable cost impact.

Protection: The future substation with its more sophisticated and common functions

needs facilities for better control and analysis.

There will be an increased demand on fast detection and disconnection of

faults. Faults should be attended to before outage occur. This can be done by redundancy.

Connection between substations via fibre optic makes analytical redundancy in protection

system possible.

S/S should be: Simple, safe and reliable.

With low environmental impact, compact and flexible.

Intelligent, maintenance-free and self-reparatory.

Cost effective.

25. Gantt chart

My training was started on 25th

of June 2014

On first day I introduce about myself, about my collage. And also they ask me about

my interest related to the field of transmission and distribution. They ask me some question

related to substation, as they try to know about what I am know about substation or related to

this field.

After they show me the substation and tell me about the substation, purpose of

substation. From where this substation get input supply.

He also tells me about his professional life, related to his job and from how long he

work in KESCO. He also tells me about experience of his job under KESCO.

First weak-

In first weak he firstly show me Barra-8 substation, with the Assistant Engineer

N.N Pandey (AE) and tell me about substation because through Barra-8 substation Tatya

Tope nagar get the supply of 33KV. And from this substation another line of 33 KV is given

to the Meharbaan Singh Ka Purva’s substation.

Second Weak-

Now he show me Tatya Tope nagar substation, and told me about connections how

these connections are done. Because it is distribution substation so it is small so there is only

single Power transformer through this transformer 33KV is step down to 11KV, and then it is

supplied to different areas, this substation is connected with 16 villages, Tatya Tope nagar,

Ambedkar nagar, and Meharbaan Singh Ka Purva also.

Third weak-

On third weak learn about Power transformer and buckles relay and he tell me

about transformer cooling, windings, and how buchholz relay operate, he asked me about

circuit breakers what are the types, he also shown me how the transformer is installed in

particular area as I see installation of transformer at Ambedkar nagar, area sector-D. but for

grounding they use coal and salt as grounding material, an iron rod is connected to

transformer body and it is placed inside the earth area is dig about 10-12 feet and is filled by

shubham sachan

Page 38: Training report by shubham sachan

30

coal and salt and road is placed in between them. He tell that this is used as coal and salt are

the good absorber of negative charges.

Fourth weak-

In fifth weak he tells me about how transformers are controlled through control

room. As there is an incomer chamber where 11KV supply is given as input in this incoming

chamber there is an trolley which is to be pull up through a rod it is an channel type while it

is fully up the supply from incomer is passed to next chamber through this chamber different-

different areas of transformer are connected, this is also used as for the purpose when roasting

Are to done or repairing the fault, when any fault is happened then the tripping switch is kept

open so the power is not given to that area and fault can be easily repaired.

In substation there is an battery room, this DC supply is used to give supply to the

substation and equipment’s of substation like light’s, computer, communication devices and

also for cooling of transformer etc.

Fifth weak-

On last week he took me to the 132/33KV Armapur substation this substation is

come under ordinance factory and it give supply only this factory, here he shown me and tell

me how this large substation is operated.

Armapur substation is get an 132KV input power from Panki power house, where

electricity is made through coal, here coal is burned and the heat of this coal is firstly highly

compressed and then it is through with high pressure on the turbine and then 132KV

electricity is generated.

He tell me the working of 132/33KV Armapur substation, as 132/33KV Armapur S/S is

come under “Uttar Pradesh Power Transmission Corporation Ltd.” This S/S is only for giving

the supply to the “Kanpur Ordinance Factory”.

In this S/S 132KV is step down to the 33KV and then give it to the ‘OFC’. Here two 132KV

main lines are taken as I/P from Panki Thermal power plant than with this line ‘LA’ is

attached after two PT’s are attached in parallel, after PT’s two CT’s are attached in series

here in this S/S two PT’s & CT’s are use because first PT is of KESCO department and

second PT is of OFC Armapur S/S same as concept is used is CT’s also. After this bus bar is

used again ‘LA’ is connected on further connections after this SF6 circuit breaker is used, this

shubham sachan

31

is done with both the lines, after this insulators are connected now this 132KV is then give to

PT of rating 20MVA and converted to 33KV, in this PT oil circuit breaker are used with

buchholz relay is used for this transformer protection. Then again insulator’s, PT’s, CT’s and

bus bar are used for further supply before this 33KV is given to the OFC Vacuum circuit

breaker is also used.

This S/S is fully automatic and these all equipment are also controlled

through control room. So before doing any kind of maintenance it is close it from the control

room then also through isolator’s and if any maintenance in doing on C.B’s then there is an

special feature to close it from there also, for more protection.

Sixth weak-

As my 1 month training is completed on 24th

of June, at the last he tell me how

local connection are provided to consumers.

1. You have to write an application for electricity connection. And also tell how much load

you want to take these are as 1 KW, 2KW, 5KW etc.

2. Then you have to give quotation fees or processing fees, meter charge, house registry

papers and your voter id card.

3. Then when all these processing is completely done within 1 weak meter and connection

will be given to you.

In this same weak all the work of training certificate is done by me. Signed by

all the respected engineers, and finally I got my training certificate on 28th

of June.
