Sample Power Generation Course Descriptions
2501 - Major Components: Design & Construction
The objective of this power generation course, the first in the GAS TURBINE series, is to present the main construction and design features of gas turbines as used for power generation. Basic cycles are discussed, and different sizes and machine layouts are presented. After completion of this course, the participant will be able to understand the following concepts and apply them to his day to day work activities.


2502 - Gas Turbine Support Systems
The objective of this power generation course is to present and discuss features of the various support systems and auxiliaries that are necessary for operation of the gas turbine. Both ON-BASE and OFF-BASE equipment is studied. Note, that the design of the support systems varies according to the size and purpose of the gas turbine unit. Aeroderivative machines are discussed in a separate course.

2503 - Operation of Gas Turbines
The objective of this power generation course is to present the factors involved in operation of the gas turbine generating unit, including typical procedures for start-up and shut-down of the unit. On-load operation is discussed with particular emphasis on operating hazards and limitation. The course generally focuses on the heavy industrial type gas turbine. Aero-derivatives are discussed in detail in tape number five in the series. Upon completion of this course, the participant should be familiar with and be able to apply the following concepts:


Power Generation  Technical Training Classes Online including gas turbine, hydro-electric,  steam power, heat rate optimization, electrical fundamentals, grid dynamics and power plant  control room operator.

2504 - Gas Turbine Control and Protection Systems
The objective of this power generation course is to present the features of control and protection systems as used on gas turbine installations. The previous tape GT 3 dealt with operating parameters and potential hazards thus laying the groundwork for study of control and protection devices.

2505 - Aero-Derivative Gas Turbines
The objective of this power generation course is to highlight the main features of the aero-derivative type of gas turbine, drawing attention in particular to the difference when compared with the heavier industrial machines. Upon completion of this course, the participant should understand and be able to apply the following concepts:


2506 - Routine Maintenance 
The objective of this power generation course is to present the nature and purpose of different modes of maintenance, i.e. running, predictive, and preventive maintenance.

2507 - Major Maintenance 
The objective of this power generation course is to draw attention to inspection requirements, which are similar for most types of gas turbines although mechanical details may be different. Upon completion of this course and associated workbook, the participant should understand and be able to apply the following concepts:


2508 - Combined Cycle Operation
The objective for this power generation course is to present the main features of the Gas Turbine Combined Cycle, as employed for "Power Generation", and "Co-Generation" (process steam of gas to industry) The most common types of configurations are presented along with an examination of typical steam turbine arrangements. Operation and control of the combined unit is also discussed in some detail, with the exception of the HRSG which is demonstrated in course 2509.
