Why Attend This Training Course?
The primary function of this course is to allow the attendee a detailed understanding of the mechanical maintenance activities associated with gas turbines and provide a detailed overview of Gas Turbine Speedtronic Control systems such that attendees will have a much clearer understanding of the configuration and reliability of these systems. This course is an ideal course for those engineers/technicians wishing to gain a more detailed understanding of the mechanical design and maintenance activities associated with gas turbines. Together with a detailed examination of the major systems of a gas turbine this course also discusses the different maintenance approaches along with a description of the mechanical aspects of the typical gas turbine inspections.

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.

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
This training course is designed for Engineers and Technicians who are involved in vibration measurement and analysis, so that they may be fully involved in obtaining the maximum benefit from the implementation of the predictive maintenance system.
