Steam Turbines

5 Days

MTE/EXTAV-E

Overview

LEVEL

Proficiency

AUDIENCE

Operation and technical department staff from manufacturing plants or power plants who are in charge of steam turbine operation and maintenance.

PURPOSE

To provide better understanding of steam turbine technology, performance and operation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

To explain the operating principles of steam turbines. To select adequate operating conditions. To explain typical operating problems. To implement a steam turbine systematic troubleshooting survey.

WAYS AND MEANS

Study of industrial cases:

Various illustrations of actual systems. Use of a dynamic simulator (IndissPlus by RSI) to demonstrate typical features related to start-up.

Agenda

STEAM TURBINE PERFORMANCE

1.25 d

Steam characteristics, inlet and exhaust conditions. Ideal expansion and real expansion. Monitoring steam characteristics on the Mollier diagram: expansion, heating, consumption, etc. Expansion mechanisms: impulse stage, reaction stage and different types of multistage turbine. Overall performance. Application: analysis of industrial turbine operation.

TECHNOLOGY
