Description

As we all know, the auxiliary systems, on any steam turbine generator, play a very important role in the overall availability and reliability of the operating unit.  All too often, however, these auxiliaries are operated and maintained in a very “matter-of-fact” way.  Operating and Preventive Maintenance Procedures are wonderful tools (and HPC can help development them, if needed), but it is very important that personnel understand (to various degrees) why the systems are operated and maintained the way they are.  Operations personnel have a need to fully understand the interactions of all components.  Maintenance personnel need to understand the relevance of those corrective and preventive maintenance procedures that are being implemented.  Technicians need to understand why setpoints are what they are and what is their value to overall reliability and availability of this operating equipment. HPC’s course is instructed by equipment experienced personnel.  The equipment experience is often significant.  Plant O&M personnel are guaranteed to benefit from the instructor’s practical experience and OEM education.  This course benefits operations personnel, mechanical maintenance personnel, I&E technicians, and engineers. Topics include:  Steam Turbine Overview, Turbine Lube Oil System, Steam Seal System, Hydraulic Power Unit, Generator Overview, Seal Oil System, Hydrogen Control System, and the Stator Cooling Water System.

Objectives

The participant, upon completion of this course, for each system studied, should be able to:
  1. State the purpose and design considerations (and evolution) that lead to current operation procedures.
  2. State the designed purpose and function of each component.
  3. Using control diagrams and P&IDs, describe normal and abnormal operation sequences.
  4. State the function of each instrument.
  5. State the cause and effect of operational malfunctions.
  6. State OEM recommended preventive maintenance activities.
  7. Describe typical outage maintenance activities.
