The 5-day operations and Maintenance course is designed for plant personnel involved in the daily operation and maintenance of either Mark VI control system or HMI. The course will enable operators and technicians to configure HMI displays and confidently, manipulate HMI software tools as well as diagnose problems in Gas Turbine SPEEDTRONIC Control Systems. The course is designed to provide a solid background in turbine governing systems. Participants increase their skills in HMI features, configuration, and troubleshooting. The direct access to Gas Turbine Mark VI controller will allow students to view various operational problems and introduce the concepts of configuration, troubleshooting and fault finding. This course provides participants with practical hands-on training in operation and Maintenance of gas turbine power plants under normal and abnormal conditions. Participants learn safe and efficient plant operation methods, plant start-up, normal operation, plant shutdown, and dealing with typical problems that occur in gas turbine power plants. The training is conducted using real-time direct access to typical plant problems in a realistic environment for the participants to understand, analyze, troubleshoot and respond to the problems. Participants are required to deal with associated alarms, analyze and discuss the cause and the effects of the problem scenario and to take corrective actions to restore the plant to normal conditions. Direct access training is one of the most effective methods of training the operation and Maintenance personnel of industrial plants. will allow plant personnel to observe the consequences of their actions with direct impact on actual plant operations. Through pre-defined exercises, trainees can learn how to respond to emergencies and how individual actions and decisions affect entire processes in an environment that mirrors situations they would normally encounter in a plant or facility. Course is 5-Day duration accessing machine controller MKVI. A fully concise training manual will be provided will be provided for each delegate.
