An Interactive 5-Day Training Course

Power Generation Gas Turbines

Design, Operation and Maintenance Strategies

Power Generation Gas Turbines

Course Overview

Today’s world needs for continuous supply of high quality power has necessitated developing methods for maximising the reliability of gas turbines and their auxiliary systems. This also has stimulated interest in methods to improve their design, performance and maintenance strategies.

The course will:

  • Cover fundamentals and operating principles of gas turbine and it auxiliary systems.
  • Describe the best practices can be applied to various types of turbomachinery equipment.
  • Analyze the efficiency of compressors, pumps and industrial gas turbines.
  • Present modern maintenance strategies for the above mentioned systems supported by best practices and case studies.
  • Explain procedures to evaluate the performance of those equipment.
  • Go through the API codes on the operation and inspection procedures for the above-mentioned equipment.

Training Objectives

After attending this course, delegates will gain extensive understanding of the following:

  • Fundamentals and working principles of turbomachinery equipment and gas turbines
  • Design parameters for gas turbines and compressors
  • Use most appropriate techniques for performance improvement for the given application
  • Practical examples as encountered in gas turbine systems and pumping equipment
  • API codes for inspecting and operating turbomachinery and gas turbines.
  • Guidance for carrying out cost and benefit analysis and other economic issues
  • Application of modern maintenance strategies and reliability improvement of those systems

Training Methodology

The seminar will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, practical videos and interactive worked examples. There will be a number of workshops using real life cases as examples. The emphasis in the course will be on the explanation of all design and technical aspects and providing answers to problems that are encountered in everyday industrial practice. Each learning point will be reinforced with practical examples. There will be ample opportunities for active discussion and sharing professional experiences exchange
