Fossil-fired Power Plant
Control Loop Principles

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

 

PEDAGOGY

Understand the principles and the control parameters of a fossil-fired, fuel-oil, coal and biomass-fired power station.

Length of the course: 3 days

 
  • Theoretical training
  • Practical training on images and schemata
  • Practise manual operation
  • Practical training on a simulator

TRAINING PROGRAM

  • The principles of the control loop
  • The characteristics of a stable or unstable system
  • Operating in open and closed loops
  • The role of an enslavement loop
  • The role of the different components of a closed or open loop
  • The behaviour of the different actions of a PID controller
  • The different types of regulation and examples (speed, flow, temperature, level, etc.)
 
  • The different regulations of the unit (speed turbine, electric power, inlet pressure, fuel temperature, superheated steam temperature, steam temperature reheated,HP/MP/LP bypass, drum levels, steam flow boilers, tank levels, air flow, pressure or depression combustion chamber, etc.)
  • Analysis of operation of these control loops
  • Reading control diagrams
  • Operating in manual mode rather than in automatic mode
  • Sharing feedback
