Why Choose this Training Course?

This AZTech training course provides an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge about the operation, control, construction, assemblies, and configuration of the most common types of fossil-fueled power plants, in particular thermal, gas, and diesel power stations. The training course also provides an insight into the concepts of electrical and mechanical engineering, electrical machines and electrical drives, thermodynamics, etc. to make the delegates well prepared for the subject.

This training course gives a good understanding of the power station control variables, instrumentation techniques, monitoring and control of the processes and the operation of control devices, valves, sensors, actuators, heat exchangers, compressors, etc.

This training course will feature:

  • Power generation theory
  • Power plant types and their features
  • Industrial plants, processes, and control measures
  • Thermal, gas, and diesel generation power plants operations and selection criteria
  • Fundamentals of electric machines, drives, and control devices

 

What are the Goals?

By completing this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the operation of power plants
  • Analyze process and control diagrams
  • Become familiar with maintenance, troubleshooting, and control of power plants
  • Comprehend the power plant parameters, disturbances, and control techniques
  • Learn about power plant features, selection criteria, and optimization

 

Who is this Training Course for?

This AZTech training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Power station operators, technicians, engineers, and managers
  • Electrical and mechanical engineers of different competency levels
  • Project engineers and project managers
  • Power station maintenance crew
