Power Plant Steam Turbine & Auxiliary Systems

Power Plant Steam Turbine and Auxiliary Systems
Mechanical Engineering

To develop in-depth knowledge of the learner on real-life applications of engineering -thermodynamics in a steam turbine, its design philosophy and constructional details including assembly of large capacity steam turbine used in power plants.

To give exposure to the manufacturing procedures of various components of a steam turbine, its erection, commissioning as well as operational procedures of a large capacity steam turbine.

About the Course

The Steam Turbine is a machine that converts the thermal energy of pressurized steam and transforms it into mechanical work. The turbine generates a rotary motion which is used to drive the electrical generator that generates electrical power. This course is designed with topics related to different industry oriented technical & functional areas of Steam Turbine and its Auxiliary systems & equipment in a power plant. The various modules and topics provide the learner detailed information and thorough industry-based knowledge on design, technical features, manufacturing, commissioning & operation of the specific technical areas of Steam Turbine & its Auxiliary systems.
