GAS TURBINE OPERATIONS ADVANCED F-CLASS TURBINES
GE reserves the right to modify the class content to meet the participant’s needs.
This course is designed to enhance GE F-class gas turbine-generator operation skills and provides a detailed overview of F-class turbine operating sequences and control and protection functions. The course builds upon student's operational skills and develops a background in gas turbine-generator operation that enables participants to properly analyze operating problems and take the necessary corrective action. Focus will be on the gas turbine and generator control and protection and does not include discussions on auxiliary support systems. Please refer to the Agenda noted below.
Participants may wish to bring their unit specific "Control Specification" with them to facilitate correlating classroom discussions with specific unit parameters.
Course is held at a GE Energy Learning Center training facility. All locations have turbine equipment available to view that enhances the learning experience beyond the classroom lectures and discussions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Engineers, operations, maintenance technicians, administrative personnel and those in affiliated industries who have a background in GT operations and wish to gain further understanding of the operation of GE heavy duty gas turbines.
COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND ATTIRE
GE facilities are tobacco-free and smoking is prohibited in all areas of the property, including outdoor space owned by GE. This means that all employees, as well as customers, contractors and visitors are prohibited from using tobacco products anywhere on facility grounds, including in motor vehicles.
