  1. ENERGY PRODUCTION(OPERATIONS) Mark Studenic Energy Production Superintendent

  2. Operations – Maintenance Interaction • Operations: • Determines “what” and “when” for corrective maintenance • Leads daily production meetings • Initiates repair requests • Performs minor maintenance • Maintenance: • Determines “who” and “how” • Plans, schedules and executes maintenance work • Preventive/predictive maintenance • Most corrective maintenance • Outage management

  3. Operations - Staffing • Four rotating shift teams

  4. Operator Training & Development • Simulator sessions • Structured classroom training • On the job training • Written tests (monthly) • Enhance system knowledge • Coaching process • Operating procedure reviews (monthly) • Other • Business plan (annual) • New installations

  5. Equipment Check Sheets Daily Weekly Monthly Quarterly Annual Start-up/Shut down Outage Performance Measures Commercial Availability Dispatch Accuracy Communications Heat Rate NOx Reduction Performance Environmental Performance Safety Performance Knowledge Tests Disciplined Approach

  6. Performance Optimization Tools • PI (Process Information) • Trends • Scorecards • Operating procedures • Alarms/Annunciators • Personnel development processes

  7. Operations - Challenges • Aging workforce – loss of knowledge • Aging plant – increased system failures (cables, piping, etc.) • Training – new hires, new processes, new technology • Environmental performance optimization • Raising standards for excellence • Disciplined approach (check sheets) • Scorecards • Cycling units (units 1-4)

  8. Material Handling (Coal Yard) • Highlights: • Burn approximately 2.72 million tonne/year (3 million tons/year) • All coal received by train • Rapid discharge rail car unloader

  9. Rail Car Unloader • One of a kind in AEP System; 1995 • Completely automated • Unloads train at 3,356 tonnes per hour (3,700 tons per hour) • Train moves continuously at 0.48 Km/hour (0.3 MPH) • Equipped with top mount traveling rail car shaker

  10. Ash Utilization • Flyash- No commercial use • Unit 5 Bottom Ash • No commercial use • Used internally for dam construction and fill material • Units 1-4 Boiler Slag • 79% is processed and sold for roof shingles and sand blasting agent • 19% is sold to local townships for roadway ice control • 2% is stored on site as waste product • Cenospheres

  11. Chemical Lab • Highlights • Oxygenated feedwater treatment- unit 5 • Reverse Osmosis System- unit 5 • Circulating water copper corrosion inhibitor- unit 5 • Cycle water sample conditioning system • Caustic feedwater treatment- units 1-4 • On-line cycle water instrumentation
