The Jangjingang Power Station has increased electricity production in recent years.
The secret is the heightened sense of responsibility and fulfilment of role of the operators of generators.
There is a byword “sentry-type duty” used in the hydropower generation sector.
This is the appellation pertaining to the generator operators who should keep a sharp watch on and control the levels of surge tank and spillways, the number of generators in use and the like. It means that they assume a very important role in electricity production.
Only when they discharge the duty in a responsible manner like soldiers in posts, can they ensure the high water level running of generators and produce much more electricity with the same quantity of water.
The power station directs primary efforts to improving the operators’ technical knowledge and skills.
It gives the operators technical study assignments every month and strictly reviews their implementation.
And each technician takes charge of a low-skilled operator to help them improve their skills.
Meanwhile, the socialist emulation drive is organized between shifts in a planned way and advanced sci-tech hits are actively introduced.
The real-time efficiency measurement system, which helps correctly measure the amount of water coming to the turbine room through pressure iron pipeline and know the efficiency per water-wheel generator on the basis of the measurement, is a valuable sci-tech hit whose advantages have been proved in practice.
Workers and technicians of the power station introduced the real-time efficiency measurement system into over a dozen water-wheel generators in close contact with the Ministry of Electric Power Industry and scientific research institutions.
As a result, they came to be able to analyze the number of generators in use, turbine efficiency, combined efficiency and water level of surge tank in real time and provide a guarantee for ensuring the high efficiency operation of generators.
On the basis of these successes, the power station worked out an automatic load distribution program for ensuring high efficiency operation according to generators and is hastening the work of introducing it.
According to its introduction into power station unit 2, it is very helpful to ensuring the scientific accuracy and precision of operation while increasing the output of generators.
In addition, the power station attaches importance to ensuring the volume of water in a reservoir and measuring it accurately, removing in time the sediment bed layer in the intake and discharge waterway and working out the plan for electricity production to cope with rainy and dry seasons in collaboration with the hydro-meteorological service institution.
