Gas & Steam Turbines: Theory & Maintenance

Code : M/14

Why Attend This Training Course?

The use of rotating machinery in day to day life, and manufacturing and processes, nuclear power stations, automobile, oil and gas refinery etc. has increased tremendously. In recent trends the industries are transforming from preventive maintenance to predictive maintenance. It essentially involves human sensory with mixture of sophisticated instruments to inspect the machines while running. Vibration analysis is the one of the most effective tools used to check the health of plant machinery and diagnose the causes. The health of machine is checked by routine or continuous vibration monitoring with sophisticated instruments, which will give you early indication of the failure and can take countermeasures to avoid catastrophic failure This course studies the common causes that produce vibrations in rotating machines. These problems are identified with frequency and phase analysis. Unbalancing and procedure of Balancing have been explained in detail. The vibration measurement and data collection equipment, as well as acceptance standards are discussed.  The course covers all the aspects of Predictive maintenance, condition monitoring, vibration monitoring and analysis, frequency analysis, vibration analysis instrumentation.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?

This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.
