21 - 23 JANUARY 2019, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

About The Course

This seminar will cover all aspects of gas turbines and co-generation plants.  This seminar will cover in detail all the components of these types of plants such as: compressors, combustors, gas turbines, heat recovery steam generators, lubricating systems, instrumentation, control systems, transformers, and generators.  The design, selection considerations, operation, maintenance, pay-back period, economics of gas turbines and co-generation plants, as well as, emission limits, reliability, monitoring and governing systems are also covered in detail.  This seminar will also provide up-dated information in respect to all the significant improvements that have been made to gas turbines and co-generation plants during the last two decades.

 

This seminar will illustrate through sophisticated computer simulation how gas turbines and co-generation plants perform under steady-state and transient conditions. In addition, the delegates will learn how to use the computer simulation program which provides the following benefits:

  • Allow the operator to extend the gas turbine operating period by avoiding unnecessary outages and maintenance activities.
  • Determination of essential gas turbine maintenance activities to reduce the duration of outages.
  • Profit optimization of gas turbines and co-generation plants.
  • Minimization of the environmental emissions of gas turbines and co-generation plants.

Furthermore, he has received the following awards:

  1. The first “Excellence in Teaching” award offered by PowerEdge Asia Training center, Singapore, December 2016
  2. The first “Excellence in Teaching” award offered by the Professional Development Center at University of Toronto (May, 1996).
  3. The “Excellence in Teaching Award” in April 2007 offered by TUV Akademie (TUV Akademie is one of the largest Professional Development centre in world, it is based in Germany and the United Arab Emirates, and provides engineering training to engineers and managers across Europe and the Middle East).
  4. Awarded graduation “With Distinction” from Dalhousie University when completed Bachelor of Engineering degree (1983).
  5. Entrance Scholarship to University of Ottawa (1984).
  6. Natural Science and Engineering Research Counsel (NSERC) scholarship towards graduate studies – Master of Applied Science in Engineering (1984 – 1985).

 

Our specialist 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 32 years of practical engineering experience with Ontario Power Generation (OPG – formerly, Ontario Hydro – the largest electric utility in North America). He retired from OPG in November 2016.

 

While working at Ontario Hydro, he acted as a Training Manager, Engineering Supervisor, System Responsible Engineer and Design Engineer. During the period of time, he 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, he worked as the manager of a section dedicated to providing training for the staff at the power stations.  The training provided by him covered in detail the various equipment and systems used in power stations.

 

Lastly, he 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.
