Self-Paced Courses: Control system Mark VIe Foundation - Online Series with Simulation

Click here to enroll

Price: $2,000.00 USD

Course Description

W-CON13405

Mark VIE Advanced Viewer Screen

 

Course Description

The Mark™ VIe control system is a flexible and scalable architecture for turbine-level and plant-level control. The ControlST™ software suite containing ToolboxST™ is used to program, configure, and analyze control system performance. The CIMPLICITY™ Human Machine Interface is provided as an interface to the operator for turbine and plant visualization and control.

This course will utilize typical Gas Turbine (GT) software to describe and demonstrate the principles of configuration and troubleshooting the Mark™ VIe control system.

Access to a virtualized cloud hosted HMI with GT simulation will allow the student to apply course objectives hands-on following guided lab procedures.

This course is designed as a self-paced, web-based training curriculum. Narrated presentations, demonstration videos and guided lab exercises will be utilized as part of training. Exercises are provided to allow the student to assess their understanding of key concepts.
