Selection, Applications, Operation and Diagnostics

29 NOVEMBER – 01 DECEMBER 2017, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

Introduction

This seminar will provide a comprehensive understanding of modern control systems, digital control, distributed control systems (DCSs), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, industrial instrumentation, HART protocol, control valves, actuators, and smart technology. This seminar will focus on maximizing the efficiency, reliability, and longevity of these systems and equipment by providing an understanding of the characteristics, selection criteria, common problems and repair techniques, preventive and predictive maintenance.

This seminar is a MUST for anyone who is involved in the selection, applications, or maintenance of modern control systems, digital control, distributed control systems (DCSs), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, industrial instrumentation, control valves, actuators, and smart technology because it covers how these systems and equipment operate, the latest maintenance techniques, and provides guidelines and rules that ensure their successful operation. In addition, this seminar will cover in detail the basic design, operating characteristics, specification, selection criteria, advanced fault detection techniques, critical components and all preventive and predictive maintenance methods in order to increase the reliability of these systems and equipment and reduce their operation and maintenance cost.

Training Methodology

The instructor relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process.  This method ensures that all the delegates gain a complete understanding of all the topics covered.  The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught to their own organization.

Course Faculty - Philip Kiameh

Philip Kiameh, M.A.Sc., B.Eng., D.Eng., P.Eng. (Canada) has been a teacher at University of Toronto and Dalhousie University, Canada for more than 23 years. In addition, Prof Kiameh has taught courses and seminars to more than four thousand working engineers and professionals around the world, specifically Europe and North America. Prof Kiameh has been consistently ranked as “Excellent” or “Very Good” by the delegates who attended his seminars and lectures.

Prof. Kiameh performed research on power generation equipment with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited at their Chalk River and Whiteshell Nuclear Research Laboratories.  He also has more than 30 years of practical engineering experience with Ontario Power Generation (formerly, Ontario Hydro – the largest electric utility in North America).

While working at Ontario Hydro, Prof. Kiameh acted as a Training Manager, Engineering Supervisor, System Responsible Engineer and Design Engineer. During the period of time that Prof Kiameh worked as a Field Engineer and Design Engineer, he was responsible for the operation, maintenance, diagnostics, and testing of gas turbines, steam turbines, generators, motors, transformers, inverters, valves, pumps, compressors, instrumentation and control systems. Further, his responsibilities included designing, engineering, diagnosing equipment problems and recommending solutions to repair deficiencies and improve system performance, supervising engineers, setting up preventive maintenance programs, writing Operating and Design Manuals, and commissioning new equipment.

Later, Prof Kiameh worked as the manager of a section dedicated to providing training for the staff at the power stations.  The training provided by Prof Kiameh covered in detail the various equipment and systems used in power stations.

Professor Philip Kiameh was awarded his Bachelor of Engineering Degree “with distinction” from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He also received a Master of Applied Science in Engineering (M.A.Sc.) from the University of Ottawa, Canada. He is also a member of the Association of Professional Engineers in the province of Ontario, Canada.

Prof Kiameh wrote 5 books for working engineers from which three have been published by McGraw-Hill, New York.  Below is a list of the books authored by Prof Kiameh:

  • Power Generation Handbook: Gas Turbines, Steam Power Plants, Co-generation, and Combined Cycles, second edition, (800 pages), McGraw-Hill, New York, October 2011.
