Hi! Wikipedians,

While browsing the net, by chance I happen to bump on Wikipedia site, which I found to be exhaustive and informative.

I congratulate the founders and the authors of articles for their all efforts to maintain this by further improving wherever possible.

However I am unable to see any article on Thermal Power Plant details of An Utlity Thermal Power Station or on major problems and their repair methods in these, given by any technocrat with relevant experience, though I could see many articles on Power Stations. May be, I might have missed it.

Therefore, I request for any information on these from any reader at the earliest.

On my part, I thought that I have found a place to part with my knowledge on Power Stations for the use of other technocrats of all ages. Hence is the birth of my write up.

Details about me are as under

I am a 1946 [[1]] graduate of Electrical Engineering of the University Of Mysore, located at Bangalore, the only one of its kind in the whole of Mysore Princely State at that time. There were only Three desciplines those days, Civil, Mechnical and Electrical.

Professional working

The author, during his period of professional working had the responsibility to operate and

maintain the power generation, connected with units of 1000KW to 200MW units in India, of various

manufacturers, particlarly GE and BHEL. The problems mainly were at a period when computerization

and specialists in various fields were not available. Hence the reliability and the maintenance of

Continuity of Power Generation were mainly in the hands of Operating and maintenance staff

connected with the plant and their skill in handling the power generating units. For traning of

operators, simulators were also not available.

During my working, in the last 50 years, 1946 onwards, worked as power station engineer in Madras

Electricity Department [[4]] for a short time

and Gujarat Electricity Board for a major time and retiring there on, as Chief Engineer

(Operation). There after worked as consulting Engineer in reputed organizations such as Tata

Consulting Engineers and Tata Projects Ltd., and there on in Ficthtners consulting Engineers,in


Also worked for three years as Chief Trainee Officer at a Power Station with 4x220MW units.

The points brought out in the write up are purely based on my memory only, (at 83+), which is

subjected to correction by the readers.
