The EHC System is divided into 3 major sections that involve the control of the turbine. These are Speed, Load, and Flow. This Seminar explains the purpose of each input and output signal of a given section along with an operational description of its functionality with respect to the control of the turbine. After a thorough discussion of each section, the association of each section to another is explained to provide a working knowledge of the EHC System in that the attendee knows the HOW, WHEN, and WHY of the signals used to control the valves; signals used for testing the various components of the turbine; and signals used for safeguarding the turbine. Insight into the design criteria of the circuits, priorities for calibration, sequence of calibration, calibration techniques, and need for accuracy is given as only a HPC Certified Instructor can accomplish.

Has an upgrade been considered for your EHC Mark-I? If so, this Seminar provides some useful information. When is an upgrade inevitable? What benefits are to be gained from an upgrade? Which vendor does one choose? How does one start in preparing for an upgrade? From the information gathered and learned from the Steam Turbine Controls Upgrade Seminar that HPC sponsored in June of 2002, these questions and more will be discussed.

Recommended for Engineers and E&I Technicians.

Note: This Seminar, normally 7-days in length, has been trimmed to fit a 5-day format. To accomplish this, several topics are listed as advance self-study, and HPC will forward advance reading materials to registrants to support this effort.
