Participants will learn about turbine-generator design and construction and will be able to identify major components using correct terminology. Auxiliary systems will be described and students will review one line diagrams and consider typical problems and corrective responses.

Control system philosophy and design overview will give participants a clear understanding of speed and load control. The starting and loading chart and instruction will be discussed and participants will work through interactive exercises to practice using this important tool. An overview of protective systems including alarm and trip functions will further the student’s appreciation for safe operation and what to do under alarm or trip conditions. A significant portion of time will be spent reviewing and discussing correct response to each alarm and trip function. The importance and procedures for periodic testing will be reviewed and why each is important stressed.
