This course is divided into two parts the first part deals with design and general operation and maintenance characteristics of Centrifugal Compressors and the second part deals with Advanced Gas Turbines. The last day of the course is devoted to the computation of the performance characteristics of centrifugal compressors and gas turbines. To accommodate a wide range of participants and their interests the last day of the course is optional, and the fees (including materials and luncheons) are broken into the following components:
The first four days of the course encompasses the design and general operation and maintenance characteristics of centrifugal compressors and gas turbines. The course teaches overall design and operation concepts incorporating basic operation and maintenance problems for gas turbines and centrifugal compressors.
The gas turbine part of the course discusses gas turbines as direct drives for compressors and pumps and cogeneration and combined cycle applications.
An emphasis is placed on providing practical information with minimal theory and is aimed at engineers and operational personnel who need a broad-based introduction to practical operation and design considerations of centrifugal compressors and gas turbines. Discussion throughout the course of plant problems with the instructor and amongst the course attendees is encouraged so as to maximize the course experience.
On the fifth day of the course the computation of the performance of gas turbines and centrifugal compressors is discussed. Course participants will be taken through the computations of gas turbine and centrifugal performance tests on software supplied and the proper correction factors applicable. Attendees should bring their lap top computers so that sample computations can be carried out in conjunction with the instructor.
On completing the course, participants will be eligible to receive:
