Chapter 1

An organization study is a study which gains knowledge about the overall working oI an
organization. An organization study is manly conducted to understand the various activities,
departmental structure, Iunctions, previous perIormance, Iuture plans.etc. In an
organization study data can be collected through interview, previous records, and direct
observation oI organization .etc.
An organizational study involves the study oI the structure and Iunctioning oI its
departments. Organizing is one oI the important Iunctions oI Management. Almost all the
organizations are diIIerent but they have certain common Ieatures. All are collection oI
people, linked together by Iormal and inIormal relationships. %hey have hierarchical orders
that are engaged in co-operative activities and they all have identical boundaries. So the
study oI people in organization is important Ior Iuture managers. Structure oI an
organisation is very important Ior its Iunctioning and growth. It provides the basic Irame
work Ior its progress and expansion. For Iuture managers it is imperative to study the
organisational structure and Iunctioning oI successIul organisations so that they as Iuture
managers may guide organisations towards success and proIitable Iunctioning

Industry Profile

Power is a critical inIrastructure on which the socio economic development oI the
country depends. Recognizing that electricity is one oI the key drivers Ior rapid economic growth
and poverty alleviation, aIter independence Indian government has decided to bring all new
power generation, transmission and distribution in rural and urban centre under the purview oI
state and central government agencies. Accordingly State Electricity Boards were Iormed in all
states. %oday SEB`s are the maior constituents oI the power sector.
%he commercial and industrial distribution transIormers market oIIers a still developing
case study in the inIormal collaborative model Ior a national market transIormation initiative.
Despite this large economy wide savings opportunity relatively little attention has been paid to
commercial and industrial transIormer eIIiciency. For new Iacilities, expansion or renovation oI
existing Iacilities or the rare transIormer Iailure, choices exist which can provide substantial cost-
eIIective energy savings. By choosing energy eIIicient transIormers, individual commercial and
industrial Iacilities can cut total electricity bills by 0.3 to 1.5 or more with paybacks oI three
to Iive years at national average electricity rates.
Electrical ManuIactures Association, the U.S Environmental Protection Agency Iederal
purchasers represented by the Federal Energy Management Program, utility and regionally-based
energy eIIiciency program, and energy eIIiciency organization. Each oI these market actors has
played or will play a critical role in addressing speciIic market barriers.
2.1 Transformers
A transIormer is a voltage changer. %ransIormer industry is divided in to
distribution, power and other type oI transIormers. %he health oI transIormer industry depends
largely on the power generation and transmission sector. %he maior user oI this industry is the
State Electricity Boards and Industries. %he transIormer industry in India has developed Ior over
50 years and has a well matured technology base. It has the technology to manuIacture wide
range oI power transIormers, distribution transIormers and special transIormers Ior welding,
traction and Iurnaces etc. Energy eIIicient transIormers with low losses and low noise level are
also being developed to meet international requirement.
Also Indian players in the engineering segment, Ioraying in to turnkey proiects
overseas, are Iurther adding to the demand Ior transIormers. %he demand is expected to

experience double digit growth over the next Iew years. On other hand the production numbers
indicate a death in supply. %hough on a lower base the supply has grown at a rapid rate over a
longer period oI time, it seems diIIicult to match the rate oI growth in demand Ior the year ended
April 2006, production oI distribution transIormers was 65131000 KVA and 256585 other
transIormers were produced. In light oI strong demand and stringent supply, the transIormer
manuIactures are expected to enioy strong order book along with Iirm margins.
2.2 World scenario
%he growing presence oI global participants in the Indian power and distribution transIormers
market is a concern Ior local manuIactures. Understanding the importance oI private
participation Ior the growth oI the market, the Indian Govt. is actively taking steps to encourage
increased private investment. %his report analyses the worldwide markets Ior %ransIormers
(Electricity) in Millions oI US$ and units. %he speciIic product segments analyzed are Power
%ransIormers, Distribution %ransIormers.
One oI the most important developments in the global economy in the past halI century is the
enormous growth in world trade. %he growth oI the trade share oI output is probably the most
commonly used piece oI evidence to illustrate the increasingly globalize world economy. %his
growth has been dramatic, averaging 3 per year Ior past 50 years. In the time period Iirst Iocus
on 1962-99 the merchandise export share oI output tripled. %he common wisdom about the cause
oI this growth Iocuses on the worldwide reductions in trade barriers brought about by several
GA%% agreements.
%his report analyses the worldwide markets Ior %ransIormers (Electricity) in Millions oI US$.
%he speciIic product segments analyzed are Power %ransIormers, Distribution %ransIormers,

2.3 Indian scenario
Heavy electrical company encompasses important industry sectors including power
generation, transmission and distribution equipments. %his also covers turbo generators, boilers,
turbines, transIormers, switch gears and relays. %he perIormance oI this industry is closely linked
to the programmes oI the country. %he government oI the country has an ambitious mission oI
'Power Ior all 2022 as per working group on the power Ior 11
plan; a capacity addition oI
72000MW is required. %o reach wheel power, an expansion oI the regional transmission network
and inter regional capacity to transIer power would be essential. %his will stimulate substantially
demand Ior heavy electrical equipments. %here is a strong manuIacturing base Ior the
manuIacture oI heavy electrical equipments in the country. %he technology available in India is
almost at par with in the international market barring Iew areas oI the high voltage lines.
However, items like CRGO steel and amorphous cores Ior low loss transIormers are being
In India transmission and distribution system is a three tier structure comprising distribution
networks, state grids and regional grids. SEB`s are vertically integrated as intra state distribution
networks and the grids are owned and operated by SEB`s. the transmission and sub transmission
systems supply power to end consumers. Distribution oI power to end consumer is lonely
controlled SEB`s and licensees in the private sector. Most oI the interstate transmission links are
owned and operated by power Grid Corporation oI India Ltd.
%he present buoyancy in Indian economy would create demand Ior the electrical product through
industrial growth and general economic development. %he power sector reIorms will create large
business Ior power sector equipment manuIacturers and service providers. In the current
Iavorable scenario, the electrical industry certainly looks Iorward to growth. India has a Iield-
proven technology and capacity to manuIacture a wide range oI power transIormers, distribution

transIormers and other types oI special transIormers. For welding, traction, Iurnace etc. %oday,
about 95 oI the transIormers installed in the Indian Power Network are oI indigenous origin.
Energy eIIicient transIormers with low losses and low noise levels can be available to meet
international requirements. %he Indian transmission sector has evolved over time mainly on
account oI improvements in technology and systems. %he power sector reIorms are on a
threshold oI maior changes that would shape the Iuture oI industry. %he increased thrust on
providing power Ior all through building additional generation capacities, improving
transmission and distribution network would lead to a huge demand Ior power equipment
%he transIormer market in India is largely unorganized with very Iew organized players. %he key
