Overview: Power Plant Fundamentals introduces participants to a typical combined cycle power plant through a blended learning solution of classroom, videos, hands-on exercises, models and factory and plant tours (WHEN AVAILABLE). The course is focused on developing an understanding of how systems and components function rather than simple rote memorization of facts.
The topics to be covered for this training are:
Power Plant Overview
Gas Turbine Overview
Gas Turbine Theory
GT Components (7/9 technology)
GT Compressor Components
GT Combustion Chamber and DLN Components
GT Emissions and control
GT Combustion Turbine Components
GT Support Systems
Bearing Lube Oil
Inlet Guide Vanes
Cooling and Sealing Air
Liquid Fuel System
Starting System (Load Commutator Inverter)
GT Control and Operation (Basic MK V/VI and DLN 2.6) systems
Combined Cycle Theory
Heat Recovery Steam Generators
Specific Catalytic Reduction
Combined Cycle Support Systems, BOP Systems
Steam Turbine Fundamentals
GT Maintenance Considerations (GER 3620)
AC Power Generation Equipment
Electrical Distribution Systems
Renewable Energy (Wind) Fundamentals
Plant Tour and Factory/Repair Shop Tour (if available)
The focus of the training is to permit GE Employees to understand the components, construction, operation and maintenance considerations of our Gas Turbine Combined Cycle Power Plants, and Wind Turbines.
Highlights: Prepare for and effectively understand combined cycle power plants and their components during pivotal conversations.
Who Should Attend: All GE Energy exempt employees (managers and individual contributors) interested in developing and sharpening their understanding of combined cycle power plants or Wind Turbines.
