COURSE OVERVIEW

Steam Turbines are used extensively in the process industries. They mainly contribute to combined cycle and cogeneration plants and in industrial applications with widely varying configurations. Steam power is one of the major power sources for large industries. Steam turbines represent a significant part of the capital and operating costs of most plants, which play major economic importance. Moreover, the unexpected shutdown of the significant equipment can lead to major financial implications and damage to the reputation of the firm.

This course will cover the operating principles of steam turbines. Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained a thorough understanding of the various centrifugal steam turbine configurations available. The course will cover mechanical design features, sizing and application criteria and operations of Turbines. Additionally, participants will gain knowledge on maintainability, reliability, vulnerability and troubleshooting issues.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Attendance to the Steam Turbines training course will enable participants to:

  • Understand the basics of Turbine, Thermodynamics and principles of actions
  • Become familiar with the mechanical design, configurations, application ranges and constraints for steam turbines.
  • Learn about different turbine components, which include turbine rotors, balancing, rotor dynamics, casings, bearings, shaft sealing devices and lube oil management.
  • Learn the selection and sizing of steam turbines for compressor drives & understand the operation
  • Gain knowledge on troubleshooting effective maintenance management
  • Learn examples from recent failure incidents attributed to design defects and maintenance deficiencies.

TARGET AUDIENCE

The course will be of most benefit to delegates currently working in the maintenance and operations departments of the power generation industry including Maintenance Engineers, Supervisors, Operators, Plant Engineers, Equipment Professionals and Supervisors. The course will, however also be very beneficial to those involved in the procurement of new and replacement equipment

TRAINING METHODOLOGY

Steam Turbines training course will utilize a variety of proven learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes a lecture with active delegate participation including discussions, real-life problems and case studies. Through active participation in the group work and class discussions, the delegates will get a lot of opportunities to increase their experience and knowledge.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
