VIRTUAL INSTRUCTOR LED TRAINING (VILT)

GAS TURBINES AND CO-GENERATION PLANTS

14 - 18 JUNE 2021 | 5 half-day training, 4 hours per session (total 20 hours)

About The Course

This course will cover all aspects of gas turbines and co-generation plants. This course 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 course 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 course 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.

Training Methodology

The instructor relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process.  This method ensures that all the delegates gain a complete understanding of all the topics covered.  The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught to their own organization.

 

Each delegate will receive a copy of the following materials written by the instructor:

  1. Excerpt of the relevant chapters from the “POWER GENERATION HANDBOOK” second edition published by McGraw-Hill in 2011 (800 pages)
  2.  Excerpt of the relevant chapters from the “POWER PLANT EQUIPMENT OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE GUIDE” published by McGraw-Hill in 2012 (800 pages)
  3. GAS TURBINES AND CO-GENERATION PLANTS MANUAL (includes practical information about power generation – 200 pages)

Who Should Attend

  • Engineers of all disciplines
  • Managers
  • Technicians
  • Maintenance personnel
  • Other technical individuals

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;
