Transcript of Internship
Hometown of Huntingdon, PA
Roughly 20 minutes from Lake Raystown; 40 minutes from State College
Population of 7,092
Currently attending The Pennsylvania State University - Altoona Campus
Completed three years in the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology Major
Hobbies: Going to the drag strip and working on my car
WHERE I WORKED AND WHAT I DID
Talk about what department I worked in and what some on my projects/responsibilities were throughout the summer.
Saves a Mech-Tech ~1.5 hours per day of downloading data (At $54.00/hr, based on a 250 day work year, equals a savings of $20,250 annually).
What used to be a tedious half hour job of analyzing data now takes seconds with the Macro.
Anyone with a computer can analyze the data easily (no longer takes someone with extensive knowledge of project).
Highlight some of the experience and concepts from school that were expanded upon here at Allegheny Ludlum.
Tell you about myself.
Worked for the #9 department at Brackenridge
70% Electrical, 30% Mechanical
Worked under Mark Lauffer, Ryan Wasielewski, Tom Kunst and Joe Badac (Johnathan Peace Temporarily)
Also worked alongside with a great group of guys that #9 department has accumulated
PROJECTS I WORKED ON
Arc Flash Revisions
River Water Intake SEL Annunciator
Boiler Chart Recorders
Air Compressor Data Recording with IBA
Programmed SEL 25KV Feeder Protection Relay
Worked with EasyPower Software to Plot Breaker Trip Curves
Took Field Measurements and Drew Print of U-Mill Armature Cradle
Text Message Evacuation Add On
Out of all the projects I worked on, I want
to pick a few to highlight
Air Compressor Energy Usage
Completed Macro which shows savings in dollars based on a 24 hour period
Put information into Excel spreadsheet that Mark Lauffer would report to accounting
Created One Point Lesson so data acquisition could be done by anyone
Ordered parts, constructed prints, scheduled work order in Maximo and supervised the installation of new paperless chart recorders at #3 department boilers.
BOILER CHART RECORDERS
OLD VS. NEW
Brainchild Chart Recorder Print
More reliable form of recording
Can record for 980 days continuously without having to clear the memory (Old recorders had to have papers changed daily)
Up to date technology with ability to easily search through history if needed
No longer have to buy paper inserts/ink for the old recorders
Allegheny Ludlum has an amazing safety program. I want to highlight some of the safety teams I was part of this summer.
OSHA Ten Hour Safety Training
CAP (Corrective Action Plan) Over Site Team Meetings
CAP Team #3 - Hazard Control
Safety Program Initiatives
CSHE Team Meetings
Monthly Graffiti Tour (Loco Shop)
Friday Safety Call
U-Mill Armature Cradle
Assisted the team that was appointed to plan the potential failure and replacement of the universal mill armature.
No print could be found of existing armature cradle and the rigging company needed to know all the dimensions in case of armature failure.
Take field measurements and hand sketches.
Draw detailed print in AutoCAD.
Sit in on next meeting in case the rigging company had any more questions regarding the cradle.
Financial contributions I made to the company during my internship.
Created Macro that saves ~$20,000 a year.
Programmed SEL alarm panel and SEL feeder relay in house.
Used free demo software (EasyPower) to plot breaker trip curves rather than paying outside company or buying the software ($14,750).
Completed single line Arc Flash Study revisions which decreases the cost of having Qual-Tech evaluate the information. (~$70.00/hr at an average of 5 hours per week and working for 14 weeks, savings of $4,900)
Importance of Safety
Programmable Logic Controllers
Electric Motors and Generators
Economics of Engineering
Data Acquisition and Evaluation
NO SUBSTITUTE FOR EXPERIENCE
Thank you so much for the opportunity to expand my learning with Allegheny Ludlum. I would love to be able to come back to work for this company!
OVERALL EXPERIENCE AND GRADE
I truly do not believe I could have gotten exposed to so much in such a short amount of time interning anywhere else.
I believe I worked on maintenance projects that will help Allegheny Ludlum be a more efficient and financially profitable company.
If the internship was longer I believe it would have been more beneficial. Twelve weeks is a good amount of time to get acquainted with the job but more time, such as a Co-Op, would have been great.
I still have so much to learn but I would grade myself with an A-
"NO HAND INJURIES ON MY SHIFT TODAY!"
