The Westinghouse Mechanical Hydraulic Control System has proven to be a highly reliable and effective means of controlling steam turbine speed and load. It will provide years of trouble free operation if it is properly adjusted and maintained. If not maintained properly, it can be the leading cause of forced outages for the steam turbine. The reliability and availability of the control system can be a matter of skilled routine operations and maintenance activities. Efficient maintenance outages are often the result of thorough job planning and a complete understanding of the necessary skills and procedures. Furthermore, availability is often a function of the plant being able to get the unit "on-line" by resolving obstacles quickly.
Increased availability and reliability can be attained through attendance at HPC's W Mechanical Hydraulic Steam Turbine Control Systems Seminar.
Upon successful completion of this Seminar the participant should be able to:
  1. Describe the purpose or function of the entire Hydraulic Control System and the features it must have to safely control turbine operation.
  2. Name the major components/sub-systems.
  3. Describe the purpose of each major component and /or sub-system.
  4. Describe how each major component functions within the control system and/or sub-system.
  5. Name and describe the kinds of tools, instructions, drawings, etc. that are required to maintain a particular system.
  6. Describe the general methods and techniques for inspecting, testing, adjusting, and troubleshooting the hydraulic control systems.
