Gas Turbine - 6,7,9, B, E, F Class Operation
GE reserves the right to modify the class content to meet the participant’s needs.
Experienced turbine persons looking for more in-depth turbine operational information should consider the GE Gas Turbine Advanced Operation – F-Class or E-Class courses.
This course offers a basic understanding of the operations of all types of GE heavy duty gas turbine - generators for those persons with no or limited knowledge of gas turbines. The objective of this course is to give participants a basic understanding of gas turbine construction, how it works and its operation. The starting, loading, control and protection features of the turbine, generator and the function of the accessory systems are discussed.
The Model Series (MS) 6,7 and 9 B/E and F class unit types are the basis for the course material. However, discussion of MS5001 units is also available.
Emphasis is placed on the following areas:
The course is held at a GE Energy Learning Center or local facility. All locations have turbine equipment available to view that enhances the learning experience beyond the classroom lectures and discussions.
The objective of this course is to train the participant in the basics of construction and operation of the gas turbine, generator and auxiliary systems.
