Underlying Principles
of a Combined Gas and Fuel Cycle

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

 

PEDAGOGY

Understand the functioning of a combined cycle and the various parts that make it up.

Length of the course: 4 days

 
  • Theoretical and practical training on the clients' installations
  • Use of videos and industrial examples
  • Individual testing of knowledge at the end of the course

TRAINING PROGRAM

  • The presentation and the characteristics of a combined cycle
  • The major economic balances for a combined cycle
  • The simplified flow diagram of a combined cycle
  • Identifying key materials (KKS and ECS)
  • The operating principles and technology of the main equipment involved (GT, HRSG, ST, wet tower, cooling system, auxiliary circuits, etc.)
  • Normal values for operating parameters
  • The two thermodynamic cycles for a combined cycle
 
  • The various transformations of energy present in a combined cycle
  • Variation in performance and efficiency of the unit and its main components
  • The different start-up and shutdown and behaviour of key equipment
  • Operating principles
  • Electricity production / consumption balance
  • Environmental constraints subject to different operations of the unit
  • The risks of failure of the major components
  • Maintenance principles
