This course will provide a comprehensive understanding of computer simulation of gas turbines, as well as their selection criteria, operation and maintenance requirements, and economics.
This seminar provides indepth understanding of computer simulation of gas turbines under steady-state and transient conditions. The selection considerations and applications of co-generation and combined cycles are also covered in this seminar.
The analysis performed by gas turbine simulators provides the following benefits:
1) Allow the operator to extend the gas turbine operating period by avoiding unnecessary outages and maintenance activities.
2) Determination of essential gas turbine maintenance activities to reduce the duration of the outage.
The simulation program is capable of simulating the following parameters to determine their effects on gas turbine performance, turbine creep life, environmental emissions, gas turbine life cycle cost, revenue, and profitability: variations in ambient temperature and pressure, inlet and exhaust losses, engine deterioration, different faults, power augmentation methods including peak mode, and water injection, control system performance (including proportional offset, integral windup, and trips), variations in the fuel type (natural gas, diesel, etc), variations in maintenance techniques and frequency, variations in many key parameters.
The simulation program is also capable of trending the following:
1) Many gas turbine key parameters such as exhaust gas temperature, speed, etc.
2) Compressor characteristics, and its operating point during engine transients.
These trends can also be provided as bar charts. The simulated data can be exported to other Window packages such as Excel spreadsheets, etc. Many simulation exercises are included to describe how the simulation program should be used for different scenarios including co-generation and combined cycle plants.
Delegates are also encouraged to bring the operational data of their gas turbines.
