About The Course

The course is primarily intended for O&M staff at all levels of experience working in combined cycle power plants, but should also be of interest to engineers and managers involved in new project development.

The 3 day course gives attendees a comprehensive yet in-depth survey of a broad range of topics relating to the design, operation and maintenance of the HRSG and certain directly associated steam-cycle systems.

Drawing on our extensive field experience working at more than 200 combined cycle power plants throughout the world, the objective is to provide attendees with clear instruction on the design features and operating issues that potentially impact HRSG reliability, efficiency and operating life.

Learning Outcomes

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of the key systems and processes involved in the combined cycle power plant.
  • Appreciate the key constraints and tradeoffs involved in designing an HRSG.
  • Learn the water chemistry treatment options available for HRSG unit, their respective advantages and disadvantages.
  • Get access to applied theory in real life situations through a series of worked case histories.

Who Should Attend

Engineers of all disciplines, managers, technicians, design, maintenance and operations personnel, and other technical individuals who need a comprehensive introduction to practical optimization, operation and design considerations of a major combined cycle power plant.

Course Faculty - James W. Malloy

JamesWMalloyJames is currently Director of European Operations of a leading engineering and inspection consultancy in the power generation sector. Activities are now concentrated on the steam cycle in combined cycle plants, but included projects for coal, oil, diesel and nuclear plants in the past. Areas of specialization are instrumentation and controls (I&C) as well as materials science.
CRE S.A., Sophia Antipolis, France 1987-1991
Lead Engineer, worked on the design and development of real-time systems for controlling diesel generators and turbines. One application involved the development of a complete monitoring system under subcontract to a major European diesel manufacturer, which was subsequently installed on a new black start diesel at a US nuclear plant.
Raytheon Company, Development Laboratory, Sudbury, MA.
USA 1983-1987
Engineering and analyses to improve resistance of defense electronic systems to spatial environments and effects of nuclear radiation. This involved designing custom test circuitry and carrying out the tests at both Raytheon and US government facilities.
Combustion Engineering Inc., Nuclear Division, Windsor CT.
USA 1980-1982
Worked in the design group responsible for the nuclear fuel reloading (enriched uranium) for the St Lucie 1 and BG&E Calvert Cliffs plants. Used radiation transport programs for simulating the physics of the reactor during a cycle.
