About The Course

This course provides detailed description of all combustion equipment and systems used in pulverized coal boilers including pulverized coal burning systems, coal feeder, pulverizer and classifier, pulverized coal burners, furnace and fans.

 

This course provides also a comprehensive explanation of all boiler combustion control systems including pulverizer control system, combustion control, control of coal and air flow into the boiler, furnace pressure control, oxygen trim control, nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur oxides (SOx) control, control of ammonia injection, flue gas dew point control, purge control, flame monitoring and tripping system as well as their tuning methods.

 

All boiler control systems are covered as well in this seminar including drum level feedwater control, main steam and reheat steam temperature control, boiler limits and runback, sliding or variable pressure control, heat rate optimization with sliding pressure control, boiler-turbine coordinated control, etc.  The course also provides detailed explanation of Boiler NFPA 85 Code (Boiler and Combustion Systems Hazards Codes) and American National Standard Institute/Instrument Society of America Code (ANSI/ISA-77-44-01-2007 Code).  The burner management systems (BMS) and examples of boiler permissive starting logic and protective tripping logic will be explained thoroughly. The various methods used to calculate the boiler efficiency are covered in detail in this seminar including the direct and indirect methods.

 

All the factors which affect the efficiency and emissions of pulverized coal boilers will be explained thoroughly.  The course covers also all the methods used to improve the efficiency of pulverized coal boilers including improvement to their combustion efficiency and control systems performance.

Expert Course Faculty

Your specialist course leader has more than 32 years of practical engineering experience with Ontario Power Generation (OPG), one of the largest electric utility in North America. He was previously involved in research on power generation equipment with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited at their Chalk River and Whiteshell Nuclear Research Laboratories.

 

While working at OPG, 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.

 

In addition, he has taught courses and seminars to more than four thousand working engineers and professionals around the world, specifically Europe and North America. He has been consistently ranked as “Excellent” or “Very Good” by the delegates who attended his seminars and lectures.

 

He written 5 books for working engineers from which 3 have been published by McGraw-Hill, New York.  Below is a list of the books authored by him;

  • Power Generation Handbook: Gas Turbines, Steam Power Plants, Co-generation, and Combined Cycles, second edition, (800 pages), McGraw-Hill, New York, October 2011.
  • Electrical Equipment Handbook (600 pages), McGraw-Hill, New York, March 2003.
  • Power Plant Equipment Operation and Maintenance Guide (800 pages), McGraw-Hill, New York, January 2012.
