About this Training Course

This 5 full-day course provides a detailed description of all the tuning methods for all the control systems used in pulverized coal boilers, circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers, cyclone boilers, and stocker boilers. It provides a comprehensive explanation of all boiler control systems including drum level feedwater control, fuel and air control, oxygen trim control, steam temperature control, combustion control, purge control, flame monitoring and tripping system as well as their tuning methods. The various boiler control strategies are explained including feedback, feedforward, cascade and ratio control as well as Ziegler Nichols tuning and Ciancone tuning methods. The course provides a detailed explanation of Boiler NFPA 85 Code (Boiler and Combustion Systems Hazards Codes) and American National Standard Institute / Instrument Society of America Code (ANSI / ISA-77-44-01-2007 Code).

The burner management systems (BMS) and examples of boiler permissive starting logic and protective tripping logic will be addressed thoroughly. The various methods used to calculate the boiler efficiency are covered in detail including the direct and indirect methods. All factors which affect the efficiency and emissions of pulverized coal boiler and CFB boiler, all methods used to improve the efficiency of pulverized coal boilers, CFB boilers and stoker boilers including improvement to their combustion efficiency and control systems performance will be explained thoroughly. Several real-life case studies illustrating how the optimization of boiler tuning can improve combustion stability, performance and efficiency of the boiler will be explained in detail during the course.

Your key expert relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process. This method ensures that all participants gain a complete understanding of all topics covered. The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught to their own organization.

Each delegate will receive a copy of the following materials written by the instructor:

  • Excerpt of the relevant chapters from the “POWER GENERATION HANDBOOK” second edition published by McGraw-Hill in 2012 (800 pages)
  • Excerpt of the relevant chapters from the “POWER PLANT EQUIPMENT OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE GUIDE” published by McGraw-Hill in 2012 (800 pages)
  • BOILER TUNING MANUAL (includes practical information about all boiler tuning methods – 500 pages)

Your specialist course leader has more than 32 years of practical engineering experience with Ontario Power Generation (OPG), one of the largest electric utility in North America. He was previously involved in research on power generation equipment with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited at their Chalk River and Whiteshell Nuclear Research Laboratories.

While working at OPG, he acted as a Training Manager, Engineering Supervisor, System Responsible Engineer and Design Engineer. During the period of time, he worked as a Field Engineer and Design Engineer, he was responsible for the operation, maintenance, diagnostics, and testing of gas turbines, steam turbines, generators, motors, transformers, inverters, valves, pumps, compressors, instrumentation and control systems. Further, his responsibilities included designing, engineering, diagnosing equipment problems and recommending solutions to repair deficiencies and improve system performance, supervising engineers, setting up preventive maintenance programs, writing Operating and Design Manuals, and commissioning new equipment.

Later, he worked as the manager of a section dedicated to providing training for the staff at the power stations. The training provided by him covered in detail the various equipment and systems used in power stations.

In addition, he has taught courses and seminars to more than four thousand working engineers and professionals around the world, specifically Europe and North America. He has been consistently ranked as “Excellent” or “Very Good” by the delegates who attended his seminars and lectures.

He written 5 books for working engineers from which 3 have been published by McGraw-Hill, New York. Below is a list of the books authored by him;

  • Power Generation Handbook: Gas Turbines, Steam Power Plants, Co-generation, and Combined Cycles, second edition, (800 pages), McGraw-Hill, New York, October 2011.
  • Electrical Equipment Handbook (600 pages), McGraw-Hill, New York, March 2003.
  • Power Plant Equipment Operation and Maintenance Guide (800 pages), McGraw-Hill, New York, January 2012.
  • Industrial Instrumentation and Modern Control Systems (400 pages), Custom Publishing, University of Toronto, University of Toronto Custom Publishing (1999).
  • Industrial Equipment (600 pages), Custom Publishing, University of Toronto, University of Toronto, University of Toronto Custom Publishing (1999).

Furthermore, he has received the following awards:

  • The first “Excellence in Teaching” award offered by PowerEdge, Singapore, in December 2016
  • The first “Excellence in Teaching” award offered by the Professional Development Center at University of Toronto (May, 1996).
  • The “Excellence in Teaching Award” in April 2007 offered by TUV Akademie (TUV Akademie is one of the largest Professional Development centre in world, it is based in Germany and the United Arab Emirates, and provides engineering training to engineers and managers across Europe and the Middle East).
  • Awarded graduation “With Distinction” from Dalhousie University when completed Bachelor of Engineering degree (1983).

Lastly, he was awarded his Bachelor of Engineering Degree “with distinction” from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He also received a Master of Applied Science in Engineering (M.A.Sc.) from the University of Ottawa, Canada. He is also a member of the Association of Professional Engineers in the province of Ontario, Canada.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
