“Concepts of Gas Turbine Controls" is a Seminar designed to provide a working knowledge of combustion turbines and their associated control and protection equipment. Although not the focus of the Seminar, attendees will gain a solid understanding of how power is generated.  Turbine controls system design concepts are the primary focus.  Included in these discussions are Start Up Sequencing, Speed/Load Control, Temperature Control, Emission Controls and CT Protection.  All discussions are conceptual.  It is our intention that the participant understand these topics well enough (conceptually) that they can be readily applied to any combustion turbine operating unit.

OBJECTIVES
Upon successful completion of this Seminar the participant should be able to:
  1. Describe considerations for determining the combustion turbine start sequence.
  2. Describe how combustion turbine controls function off-line.
  3. Describe how combustion turbine controls function on-line and being responsive to grid conditions.
  4. Describe how combustion turbine controls function in temperature control.
  5. Describe emission concerns and differences in approach to minimize emissions.
  6. Describe considerations in determining fuel flow (demand for inlet valve positions).
  7. Describe operation of typical servomechanisms such as the Abex and Moog servo-valves.
  8. Describe typical operational exercises.
  9. Describe typical routine preventive maintenance activities.
