Power plants owe T&M instruments

Chandmal Goliya, Director, Kusam Electrical Industries Limited

“If the required energy demand can be supplied by electrification of each and every village and can also cater to the demand of the industrial sector, then the economic growth of our country will rapidly rise”

Chandmal Goliya, Director, Kusam Electrical Industries Limited, staunchly believes that by installing good quality test and measuring instruments and recording various parameters, correctly, can help in improve the efficiency of the plant.

The government’s favourites
The Indian power sector is changing the focus from the thermal power stations to clean energy power stations such as solar and wind energy stations. If the government policies are favourable for these forms of energies, the cost of power will reduce. The economic growth of India will, then, rise at a very fast pace.

Developing the infrastructure for economy
For the growth of any country and India is no exception, electrical energy and infrastructure such transportation is one of the driving factors. The government is already working on the development of highways and railway lines. If the required energy demand can be supplied by electrification of each and every village and can also cater to the demand of the industrial sector, then the economic growth of our country will rapidly rise.

Significance of test and measurement instruments
Test and measuring instruments are essential for the proper working of any industry or power plant. Although the cost value of the T&M instruments is hardly 1 per cent or 2 per cent of the total cost of the  plant, no plant can run properly and successfully without them. If bad quality instruments are installed, due to wrong indications, the entire plant gets destroyed.

Hence, test and measuring instruments are a very important part of the plant and should not be avoided. By installing good quality test and measuring instruments and recording various parameters, correctly, it can help in improving the efficiency of the plant. Also, proper maintenance can improve the life of
the plant. Hence, test and measuring instruments play an important role in the operation of the plant and safety of the people working in the plant.

Technological advancements in the T&M instruments
New measuring instruments use advance technology to give high speed accurate indications. The response time is faster than the earlier analog instruments. With the development of new sensors, the measuring instruments can measure more parameters than before and hereby, aiding in advance control circuits and systems, ensuring a good quality power.
