Fossil-fired Power Plant
Steam Turbine Equipment Technology

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

 

PEDAGOGY

Understand the physical and chemical principles of a steam turbine, auxiliaries and water stations in a fossil-fired fuel-oil, coal and biomass-fired power station.

Length of the course: 5 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 operation of steam turbines
  • Different types of steam turbines used in a thermal power plant
  • Elements for admission
  • Steam turbines (rotor, stator, fixed points, abutments, bearings, sealing, mobile and fixed blades, etc.)
  • Auxiliary (lubrication, bearings, turning gear, security, sealing steam, expansion etc.)
  • Condensers (water boxes, tube expansion, cold spots, vacuum equipment, cleaning, explosion membranes, leakage treatment, etc.)
  • The various types of condenser cooling circuit (open circuit, closed circuit with cooling tower, etc.)
  • The extraction pumps

 
  • Extraction reheating by steam
  • Deaerator and feedwater tank
  • Feedwater pumps
  • Types of corrosion and their consequences
  • Water chemistry (pH, conductivity, silica, TAC, oxygen, etc.)
  • The injection points and the treatment in the water circuit
  • The water treatment of cooling towers
  • Changing parameters during transient phases
  • The monitoring of process parameters
  • Preservation of known data by process parameter optimisation
