NOCO ENERGY CORPORATION Engineering Audit Acknowledgement: We would sincerely like to thank Prof. Dr. Safiuddin for providing us this very useful opportunity to perform an Engineering Audit at Plant. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to Mr. Val Speek, the terminal manager of Plants who rendered us a great help despite of his busy schedule. The knowledge and hands-on experience that we gained through this Audit has given us more of practical experience. Providing us an opportunity to interact with Industrial personals will be of great help for us in the aspects of attitude management in the future.

NOCO ENERGY CORPORATION Engineering Audit Abstract: Energy Corporation was incorporated as Newman Fuel Company on 1948. They store and distribute gasoline and oil received from refineries. The plant is fed from a 23kV line from Niagara Mohawk and it is further stepped down to 4160V in the substation and then this 4.16kV is given to the poles located in the plant from where it is further stepped down to 480/240V for the various loads connected in the system. There are several motors connected to the system which occupies the main aspects of load in the plant. These loads are mechanically turned on to fill the barrels with oil from the rails and trucks. The 150Hp motor is the largest rating motor operating in the plant. But it is not used till now since this motor when it is switched on interrupts the main circuit breaker. So the motor is kept unused. There are surge suppression units installed in the plant for surge protection and there is a 200E fuse in the substation as an overvoltage protection system. Apart from the overvoltage protection units there is a cathodic regulator protection unit installed newly to protect the bottom of the oil barrels from corrosion. There are no converters used in the plant and so the harmonic analysis is not performed in the corporation. The single line diagram of the plant is extended in the power world simulator and a short circuit analysis is performed to determine the fault current that will be flowing if a short circuit occurs. There is no monitoring system in the plant which would help to analyze the fault quicker and take necessary actions. If a monitoring system is set up it
