Description

In today’s market, combined cycle plants are an essential component in power production.  For new personnel entering the power plant industry, the initial experience can be overwhelming. The goal of this course is to familiarize operating personnel with the overall concept of those auxiliary systems associated with a gas turbine. Also, in today’s market there would appear to be a need for high-quality virtual instructor led training sessions.  The phrase high-quality applies to ‘content’ and the ‘presentation’ skills.  We see the following advantages in the delivery of our virtual instructor led training session:
  • Greater schedule flexibility since we don’t have to deal with travel schedules.
  • Lesser cost as there is the travel & living expenses is now zero.
  • Lesser time consumption as travel time to / from the site or classroom is eliminated.
  • Maintain the same level of content (sometimes even improve that content) by greater attention given to the need for a quality presentation.
  • Improved even more easy to read text content.
All of the above advantages along with HPC’s history of providing knowledgeable / equipment experienced instructors. Topical outline includes: Review of course objectives and course content, Inlet Air & Exhaust Systems, Cooling & Sealing Air, Lube Oil System, Hydraulic System, Trip System, Fuel Gas, Liquid Fuel, Fire Protection, Water Wash, Cooling Water, and the Starting Means.

Objectives

At the completion of this course the participant will be able to:
  1. Describe the purpose of the inlet air and exhaust system; including the function of major components, normal & abnormal operations.
  2. Describe the purpose of the cooling & sealing air system; including the function of major components, normal & abnormal operations.
  3. Describe the purpose of the lube oil system; including the function of major components, normal & abnormal operations.

Frequently asked questions

  • Will HPC Technical Services schedule a virtual on-line course for our personnel only? YES, call or email Stephen Parker, Stephen@TurbineGeneratorTraining.com for a price quotation.  The advantage of doing a class such as this is we could adjust the content somewhat and make use of materials specific to your application.
  • Will HPC Technical Services schedule an on-site, site-specific course for our personnel only? YES, call or email Stephen Parker, Stephen@TurbineGeneratorTraining.com for a price quotation.  Course can be steam turbines only, or steam turbine generators.  Again, the advantage of doing a class such as this is we could adjust the content somewhat and make use of materials specific to your application.
  • Is HPC Technical Services' textbook available for purchase as a reference document?
  • Can HPC Technical Services provide "Technical Assistance" in conducting functional checkouts or troubleshooting problems? Yes we can.  Call or contact Stephen Parker, Stephen@TurbineGeneratorTraining.com for our rate sheets and any further information required.
