Description

Instructors

Length: 2 days    CEUs: 1.50    PDHs: 15.00

The gas turbine is a versatile source of shaft or propulsion power in a growing number of applications. The course reviews methods for evaluating the performance of gas turbines, leading to the criteria for selection and application of the engine. Attendees will be instructed in identifying functions of the several components of the gas turbine. A thorough introduction into quantitative analysis of engine performance based on component characteristics will be provided.  The successful operation of gas turbines will be analyzed, including the necessary characteristics of materials and fuels, the control of combustion emissions, and elements of condition monitoring and maintenance.  Specific examples of component and gas turbine engine designs are shown to illustrate the application of the analysis principles. 

You Will Learn To:
 - Explain the methods for evaluating the performance of gas turbines, leading to the criteria for selection and application of the engine
 - Identify functions of the several components of the gas turbine
 - Conduct a basic quantitative analysis of engine performance based on component characteristics
 - Analyze the successful operation of gas turbines, including the necessary characteristics of materials and fuels, the control of combustion emissions, and elements of condition monitoring and maintenance
