About this Training Course

This 5 full-day course provides a detailed description of all performance testing methods for all thermal power plant equipment including boilers, turbines, condensers, pumps, fans, deaerators, and feedwater heaters. The methodology, and code requirements for the performance tests for all thermal power plant equipment will be explained in detail. The preparatory work and instrumentation required for each test will also be covered during the course.

The efficiency calculations for all equipment used in circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler and pulverized coal boiler power plants will be explained, including all processes, operational and maintenance activities, capital projects, technical options, potential initiatives and incentives to implement upgrades / repairs for increasing the power plant equipment efficiency.

The course will also provide a thorough explanation of CFB and pulverized coal boiler technology including hydrodynamics, combustion, emissions, design considerations, gas-solid separators, design of CFB and pulverized coal boiler components, management of solid residues, materials, stoichiometric calculations, and model for sulfur capture. The operation, maintenance, testing, and refurbishment options of all the equipment and systems used in CFB and pulverized coal power plants will be presented, including boilers, superheaters, reheaters, turbines, condensers, feedwater heaters, deaerators, pumps, compressors, fans, electric generators, instrumentation and control systems, and governing systems, etc.

The participants will get equipped on all factors which affect the CFB and pulverized coal boiler power plant efficiency and emissions, all methods used to calculate the heat rate of CFB and pulverized coal power plants as well as all areas in CFB and pulverized coal boiler power plants where efficiency loss can occur.

Updated information on the methods used to improve CFB boiler and pulverized coal boiler power plant heat rate will also be provided. It includes:

  1. Optimizing the combustion process and sootblowing
  2. Controlling the steam temperature
  3. Recovering moisture from boiler flue gas
  4. Performing steam turbine maintenance
  5. Lowering condenser back pressure
  6. Pre-drying high moisture coal and reducing stack temperature
