SPEEDTRONIC MARK VIE MAINTENANCE TRAINING

12 – 14 NOVEMBER 2018, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

About The Course

This program is intended for all control technicians and engineers of existing, installed turbines (steam or gas) on which a new Mark VIe control system has been installed. It is expected that the technicians will have hands-on experience with their turbine systems. This training will familiarize them with the hardware and software components of the control system, providing detailed knowledge to work with the Mark VIe control system in application with their turbine.

 

The course is modular and includes custom training material derived from the site specific Mark VIe system. Training is performed with short lectures followed by labs. The hands-on computer based labs teach the student the fundamental skills to navigate and use the GE controls software. The simulation of the Operator’s HMI computer gives the trainee the opportunity to fully explore the control’s interface while building confidence to diagnose and troubleshoot alarms.
