Condition monitoring techniques used in thermal power plant

Expert lecture conducted on topic “Condition monitoring techniques used in thermal power plant”

An expert lecture on Condition monitoring techniques used in thermal power plant was organized by the department of mechanical engineering shift – I for the student of BE. Mr. Hemant Bari (Senior Manager, MTP Dept, Condition Monitoring Cell, Reliance Infrastructure, Dahanu Thermal Power Station) has successfully conducted Expert Lecture for the final year student for the subject Dynamics of Machinery on topic “Condition monitoring techniques used in thermal power plant”. The students of B.E. (Div. A, Div. B, and Div. C,) were present for this session and the session was very interesting and interactive. Mr. Hemant Bari explores the importance of condition monitoring techniques used in thermal power plant and the various case studies analyzed at Dahanu thermal power station. The session were very useful from exam point of view for the student which gives the knowledge of fundamentals of vibrations and methodology to solve complex problems related to Power Plant usig condition based maintenance.

Topics discussed during program:

  1. Introduction of Dahanu Thermal Power Station.
  2. Condition Monitoring Techniques, Vibration monitoring, Thermography, Lubricant analysis, Acoustic analysis.
  3. Vibration Analysis Technique applied at DTPS to check condition of following critical machines:
  4. Case Studies of PA Fan, Locomotive Engine, BFP

CATIA V5 Essentials in Mechanical Engineering

A One Day Hands on Training on “CATIA V5 Essentials in Mechanical Engineering”

Organized by Dept. of Mechanical Engg. (Shift-II)

In Association with CORE CADD SOLUTIONS, Pune 22nd July 2016

Submitted by: Prof. Shevale S.S., Assistant Professor, Dept. of Mechanical Engg.

A One Day Hands on Training  on “CATIA V5 Essentials in Mechanical Engineering” Organized by Department of Mechanical Engineering (Shift II) In Association with CORE CADD SOLUTIONS, Pune on 22nd July 2016. Expert, Mr. Sajid Khadas, Engineer-Core Cadd Solutions, who is having real time experience in modeling, worked as onsite deputation Engineer with Global team projects were contributor with significant responsibilities and ownership in designing or engineering the components for Aerospace, Power & water & Automotive industries have been invited as resource person.

The Program was started with formal inauguration addressing the participants by the Prof. Shevale S.S. and HOD of Mechanical Engineering Dr. Kate A.M. Overview of the program and introduction of the Expert from Core Cadd Solutions, Pune was given by Prof. Shevale S.S., Program Coordinator.

Total 35 students were attended CATIA V5 program. The workshop was arranged in two sessions of 2 ½ Hrs each. In the first session was Introduction, Parametric Sketching, Parametric solid modeling, Advance solid modeling tools and Introduction of Surface were discussed. The second session of the workshop was devoted to the practicals on CATIA V5.

The program was interactive and the students are very well technically benefitted from the training. Many real time case studies were discussed and few assignments are given to participants to provide the solutions during the program.

Objective of FDP: At the end of the training the participants will have: Understanding of CATIA VS interface and application of commands for the following modules Sketcher, Part Design, Assembly Design & Drafting.

The event was scheduled to cover the following.

  • Introduction to Part Design
  • Basic Sketch Based Features
  • Basic Dressing-Up Features
  • Part Design Transformations
  • Part Design Modifications
  • Create a new product and add components.
  • Move components within a product by positioning them with assembly
  • Modify an existing product structure.
  • Design new parts in context of the product.
  • Perform interference checking and measurements.
  • Introduction to Generative Shape Design
  • Wireframe Creation

– Introduction to drafting workbench.

End of Training Valedictory was held where feedback from the students was collected and it is observed that the program outlook is satisfactory and the participants expressed that they require similar type of programs in the future.
