Power Plant Boiler & Auxiliary Systems

Power Plant Boiler and Auxiliary Systems
Mechanical Engineering

The course will present deep dive concepts and practical aspects of design, emission control, manufacturing and quality assurance, instrumentation and control, construction, commissioning and operation of boiler and auxiliaries for power plants.

About the Course

The course provides concepts and practical aspects related to boiler and auxiliaries for power plants. The course takes the learner through the boiler plant layout and basic design. It further takes the learner through a deep dive into the design of major components of boiler, boiler structure, boiler major systems, boiler feed water system, boiler coal milling system, boiler duct, fans, air heaters, emission abatement system such as NOx and SOx, electrical systems of boiler, instrumentation and control and civil construction in boiler plant. The course also gives a glimpse of the manufacturing, quality assurance and control, construction, commissioning and operational aspects of boiler and auxiliaries for fossil fuel power plants.
