This Seminar is designed to familiarize the participant with the design and operation of a mechanical drive turbine and the control system. Upon Seminar completion, it is intended that the participant be able to maintain and troubleshoot this control system such that unit availability and reliability are positively affected. Typical mechanical drive turbine applications include boiler feed pump drives and compressor drives.
This Seminar is recommended for electrical maintenance supervisors / superintendents, I&C technicians and engineers. It is also recommended that participants bring with them control system schematics for classroom use and study.
On-site presentations make specific use of that site's prints and schematics throughout the Seminar presentation.  Where examinations are required, the site presentation is recommended to be 2.5 days minimum.
Upon completion of this Seminar the participant will be able to:
  1. Describe the major components of a feed pump turbine.
  2. Given the governing diagram, describe the operation of the following system components:
    1. Servo Valve
    2. Pilot Valve and LVDT
    3. Operating Cylinder and LVDT
    4. Control Valve Linkage
    5. LP Stop and Control Valves
    6. HP Stop and Control Valve
  3. List and describe the usage of all required drawings and support documents required for system calibration.4.      
  4. Explain the operation and be able to describe the processing of signals in the following sections:
    1. Operator and Pilot Valve Position Feedback
    2. Hydraulic Servo Amplifier Output
    3. Signal Converter
    4. Signal Memory Function
    5. Redundant Speed Pickups
    6. Speed Pickup Monitoring
    7. Speed Feedback, Speed and Valve List Reference Summation
    8. Power Supplies
    9. Power Supply Monitoring
    10. Low Speed Switch
    11. 105% Lockout
    12. Tachometer Indicators
  5. Explain all necessary adjustments required on turbine related parts.
  6. Using the Governing Diagram, the Control Line Up Diagram, and the MDT-20/80 Governor Setting Instructions, list and describe the steps required in the line up and calibration of the control system.
