Expert Course Faculty
The trainer has been working in the EC&I field for 29 years in a variety of industries; the last 19 of those in power generation. He has worked as a senior design engineer for Alstom Electrical Machines where he designed and commissioned excitation control systems for coal, oil, nuclear, gas and hydro generation plants from 1MW to 1,200MW worldwide. The last two years of his time at Alstom were spent as Engineering Manager for the excitation controls division.
He subsequently moved to RWE nPower as their Lead Excitation Engineer, responsible for the excitation systems of RWE’s entire UK fleet plus numerous third party utility companies.
In 2011 he set up an independent excitation system consultancy company and now provides consultancy services and training to most of the major UK utility companies, plus companies in Europe, Asia and the US.
