This 4.5 day Seminar was developed to improve the effectiveness of maintenance activities associated with GE Frame 5 gas turbines. Learn to better plan and implement gas turbine maintenance outages. Gas turbine operation is discussed from the perspective of auxiliary systems and how operating factors may impact maintenance intervals. Combustion, hot gas path and major inspections are discussed.This Seminar has been specifically designed for plant personnel who are involved in safely and effectively operating and maintaining of these GE Frame 5 gas turbines.
Upon successful completion of this Seminar the participant should be able to:
  1. Describe the major components and systems associated with MS5000 gas turbines.
  2. List gas turbine operational and safety issues that typically cause the scheduling of a maintenance outage.
  3. Describe differences between a hot gas path inspection, turbine inspection, and major inspection.
  4. List the considerations that must be included when developing an outage plan or schedule.
  5. Describe the major considerations when making a replace/reuse/repair decision.
  6. Describe the Frame 5 support systems and requirements for operation.
  7. Describe the procedures necessary for the safe and effective disassembly and reassembly of gas turbine components.
  8. Describe the disassembly and reassembly of the major fuel valves.
  9. List the most common causes of gas path damage and their possible affects upon future operation.
  10. Describe most common causes gas path defects and their impact upon turbine efficiency and reliability.
  11. Describe the type and purpose of clearance and alignment measurements commonly taken during the disassembly and reassembly of a gas turbine unit.
  12. Describe the measuring instruments used to determine gas turbine component clearances.
  13. List and describe the various non-destructive examinations performed during disassembly of the gas turbine.
  14. Describe the common procedures for cleaning and inspecting gas turbine components.
  15. Describe the criteria used to evaluate gas turbine component defects.
  16. Describe the common repair methods for repair of gas turbine components.
  17. Describe the common types and operation of journal and thrust bearings.
  18. Describe the common causes of bearing damage.
  19. Describe the measurements required to determine oil clearances.
  20. Describe common bearing inspection and repair procedures.
  21. Describe the considerations to be taken into account when evaluating alignment of gas turbine components.
  22. Describe the methods used to properly align gas turbine generator components.
