Advanced Power Generation Gas Turbines, Co-generation and Combined Cycle Plants

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand fundamentals and facts of power generation in heat engines and their efficiency
  • Gain knowledge about typical gas turbine and steam turbines and their energy cycles
  • Understand cogeneration and combined cycle plants and their difference
  • Realize the cost of commercial power generation
  • Benefit from the result of cogeneration and combined plants

This two-day course covers the subjects of co-generation and combined cycle plants in detail and with emphasis on the rationale, economical benefits and the impact on environment.

The fundamentals how a gas turbine and a steam turbine work are explained. Then how, by the nature of their operational properties, we can benefit from combining their cycles is discussed.

Some necessary principles of electric power are included for completeness.
