Steam Turbines - Design, Thermodynamics, & Operation
Registration Deadline: 04-24-2019
Steam turbines are prime movers used in many industries. This course will over the details of design, thermodynamics and operation. For the design, the turbine components will be defined and described. This includes nozzles, rotating elements, governors, and overspeed trip devices.
From a thermodynamic point of view, steam turbines are constant entropy machines. Using the steam tables and Mollier chart, evaluate the effects of inlet and exhaust conditions for turbine sizing and rerating. Consider the heat and material balance of condensing and backpressure steam turbines and their impact on process heat requirements and cooling tower systems.
Operations section will include startup, shutdown and overspeed trip testing.
Intended audience is engineers that want to refresh their technical knowledge of steam turbines to better troubleshoot, rerate and specify steam turbines. Also, includes engineers and operators that want to learn more about the benefits and costs of operating steam turbines in their industries.
