- Hazards and safe working practices
The focus of day one will be to discuss the various types of turbines and the basic terminology associated with this rotating equipment. The hazards and safe working practices of turbines will also be covered. Participant will learn about steam, gas, hydro, and wind turbines and their operations.
Maintenance and Installation
- Components purpose and operation
- Installation factors
- Turbine installation procedures
Day two will cover the maintenance and installation of turbines. Participants will learn about the different components and their purpose and operations. Installation factors, such as manufacture specifications, job site specifications, location drawings, auxiliary systems, and the sequence of installation will also be covered. The day will end with the different procedures used in the installation of turbines and their components.
Maintenance and Installation (Cont.)
- Considerations for repair or replacement
- Tools and equipment for the installation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair
- Commission procedures
The last day will teach participants about the considerations for repair or replacement. The tools and equipment used for the installation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair for turbines will also be covered. Manufacture specification, representatives, and technical manuals for troubleshooting and inspecting turbines will be discussed. Participants will also learn about the procedures used to commission turbines.
This course is mainly targeted to mechanical technicians working in the field as an introduction or refresher. The course can also be applicable to employees working with equipment purchasing, procurement, storage, and job planning, as well as immediate supervisors to the working technicians.
Participants should have completed a minimum of awareness training in compressors. To provide a better understanding of turbines and their associated components it is recommended that all trainees have completed training on dynamic compressors.
