The intent of this presentation is to familiarize mechanics, technicians and engineers with the design, operations, and maintenance of the (GE) UT-70 Mechanical Hydraulic Controlled Feed Pump Turbines.
Upon completion of this Seminar the participant will be able to:
  1. Describe the major components of a feed pump turbine.
  2. List and describe the usage of all required drawings and support documents required for system calibration.
  3. Describe the relationship between speed control and flow control.
  4. Describe the operation of typical hydraulic relays found in the UT70 control system
  5. Demonstrate the ability to interpret information from the control and lever diagrams.
  6. Explain all necessary adjustments required on turbine related parts.
  7. Using the Governing Diagram, the Control Line Up Diagram, and the UT70 Lever Diagram and Setting Instructions, list and describe the steps required in the line up and calibration of the control system.
  8. Demonstrate the knowledge necessary to troubleshoot routine problems.
