Power Generation: Gas Turbines, Co-Generation, Combined Cycle Plants, Wind Power Generation and Solar Power



This program provides a detailed understanding of steam power plants, gas turbines, co-generation, combined-cycle plants, wind and solar power generating plants. Each of the components such as compressors, gas and steam turbines, heat recovery steam generators, deaerators, condensers, lubricating systems, instrumentation, control systems, transformers, and generators are covered. The design, selection considerations, operation, maintenance, and economics of co-generation plants and combined cycles as well as emission limits, reliability, monitoring, and governing systems will also be covered. The significant improvements that were made to co-generation, combined-cycle plants, wind and solar power generating plants during the last two decades will also be explained
