About The Course
This seminar will cover all aspects of steam power plants, gas turbines, co-generation, combined cycle plants, wind and solar power generating plants. This seminar will cover in detail all the components of these types of power plants such as: compressors, gas and steam turbines, heat recovery steam generators, deaerators, condensers, lubricating systems, instrumentation, control systems, transformers, and generators. The design, selection considerations, operation, maintenance, pay-back period, economics of co-generation plants and combined cycles, 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 co-generation, combined cycles plants, wind and solar power generating plants during the last two decades.
This seminar will illustrate through sophisticated computer simulation how gas turbines, co-generation and combined cycle 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 co-generation and combined cycle plants.
- Minimization of the environmental emissions of co-generation and combined cycle plants.
