F-EE-011 Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) Operation Gas Turbine-Part 1 2019-02-11T09:57:05+00:00

Project Description

This five days course is for anyone new into the power industry wishing to gain knowledge of gas turbines and their application. Also personnel advancing to a control room post in a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) Power Plant.
On completion of the course you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of Power Plant efficiency, its importance and what makes a Combined Cycle Plant more efficient.

Why attend

The gas turbine is a power plant that produces a great amount of energy for its size and
weight and thus has found increasing service in the past 20 years in the petrochemical
industry and utilities throughout the world. The gas turbine’s compactness, weight, and
multiple fuel applications make it a natural power plant for offshore platforms. This
second edition is not only an updating of technology, which has seen a great leap forward
in the 1990s, but also a rewriting of various sections to better answer concerns about
emissions, efficiency, mechanical standards and codes, and new materials and coatings.
At a time when energy costs are high, this important handbook expertly guides those
seeking optimum use of each unit of energy supplied to a gas turbine. In this book, the
author has assimilated the subject matter (including diverse views) into a comprehensive,
unified treatment of gas turbines. The course discusses the design, fabrication,
installation, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines. The intent of this course is to
serve as a reference after it has accomplished its primary objective of introducing the
participants to the broad subject of gas turbines. Thus course material it is of use to both
participants of the course and similarly to professionals as a reference in their daily lives.
Covers every aspect of gas turbine design and operation. Presents necessary data and
helpful suggestions to assist engineers to obtain optimum performance for any gas
turbine, under all conditions.
This five days course is class room based and focusses on the core principles of CCGT plant
operation, including:
 The Gas Laws and Thermodynamics of the Brayton Cycle
 The Gas Turbine: Compressor design and operation
 Combustion system design and operation
 Power Turbine design and operation
 Auxiliary systems

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • o Gain a thorough understanding of the Combined Cycle Power Plant principles
    o Understand the Thermodynamic Principles of the Combined-Cycle Plant and the the
    Gas Laws and Thermodynamics of the Brayton Cycle
    o Get the knowledge of the Combined-Cycle Concepts
    o Learn the main Components, Control and Automation of the CCGT
    o Introduce the basic electrical theory, alternators, including static frequency
    converters
    o Examine the Operating and Part Load Behaviour of Combined-cycle gas & steam
    turbine power plants
    o Examine the Typical Combined-Cycle Plants
    o Introduce to the CCGT Environmental Consideration
    o Get the new Developmental Trends of CCGT
    o Apply and get the knowledge of Safety, plant care and fire systems

Who should attend

This course is designed for control room operators who wish to improve their skills operating a combined cycle power plant
under a variety of normal and abnormal operating conditions, as well as assistant operators who are preparing to assume
responsibilities for unit operation.
