- Identify the different types of problem which arise for generation and substation.
- To make an analysis of total power consumption, various losses.
- Identifying different types of Trips due to Engine.
- Suggest probable solution of the identified problem.
This report will cover the operating and controlling system of these machines, transformers, power factor improvement, synchronization, troubleshooting, switchyards and its protection systems and what equipment is placed in which zone, how the equipment has been synthesized etc, of Auto 33MW Gas Engine Power Plant. The scope will be limited to only this type of Electrical power generation.(Gas Engine)
Load shedding is common in Bangladesh today. The Country can generate only 4000 MW against national demand of 5200 MW. This electricity crisis has become intolerable to us. Energy shortages are causing slowed down economic activities along with the daily life activities of people in Bangladesh. Pervasive power outages rob the country of 2 percentage points of national growth. For a developing country like Bangladesh economic growth is essential. But electricity persists as a major barrier for the business community and electricity supply has struggled to keep up with demand spurred by solid economic growth.
Power plant is one of the few blooming industries in Bangladesh generating huge foreign direct investment and also a significant number of employment opportunities. This industry is one of the major driving forces of national economy and with the continuous development of technologies worldwide.
In the Power sector, Power industry of Bangladesh promises to bloom further in the coming years. In today’s dynamic business environment, it is even more challenging to run the technology based businesses in the right direction with minimum cost which ultimately maximizes the profit.
Auto Power Plant (JPP) is a project under Pedia Power Limited. It generates 33 megawatts (MW) of electricity. This Power Plant established at Auto in 2007. It is connected in the national power grid (Auto National Power Grid) but it sells to Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB).
Both primary and secondary data are being collected for the purpose of this report. The report is concentrated of Auto 33MW Gas Engine Power Plant in Pedia Power Ltd.

Pedia Power Ltd.
At a Glance Pedia Power Limited (SPL), sponsored by Pedia Group, is the first Bangladeshi Independent Power Producer (IPP) in Bangladesh in private sector providing power to national grid. SPL was incorporated in Bangladesh on March 30, 1997 as a Private Limited Company. On June 7, 2004 the Company was converted to Public Limited Company under the Companies Act 1994. Pedia Power Limited in the year 2001, has successfully established three power plants of 11 MW capacity each, for sale of electricity to Rural Electrification Board (REB) on Build, Own and Operate basis at Dhaka. During 2006 and 2007 in each of the above three places, 2nd unit was commissioned enhancing the capacity of SPL to 105 MW. In 2009 SPL with its 99% owned two subsidiaries has established 4 new power plants raising its capacity to 215 MW. In 2011 SPL has commissioned another power plant of 102 MW capacity at Narayanganj under Pedia Power Limited, where SPL has 55% ownership. In association with its parent company Pedia Industrial & Mercantile Corporation (Pvt.) Ltd. (SIMCL), SPL has also participated and became lowest bidder in three more power plants tender and expected to sign contracts with BPDB for establishment of 52 MW Pedia , 104 MW Pedia and 104 MW Pedia Amin Power Plants. These are 15 years term IPP is expected to be commissioned by 3rd quarter of 2012. Considering the immense opportunities, the company is striving to establish more power plants around the country. The fast-growing company has set a mission to expand the company with a power generation capacity to the tune of 1000 MW, which is a modest 20% of the electricity requirement in Bangladesh. The company enjoys good reputation due to its quality power generation. The company is looking forward to providing better performance in the competitive market.
Pedia power Limited is committed to generate and provide uninterrupted supply of electricity to our customers as per their demand by meeting all the requirements of Power Purchase Agreements signed between the company and the valued Customer.
