Course Description

Introduction

This GLOMACS Generator Excitation Systems online training seminar has been developed for the participants to learn new skills associated with Generator systems and refresh their previous skills and training, to further advancement of knowledge.

The successful operation of any Generating Systems ultimately depends on how well the inspection, testing, maintenance, and troubleshooting functions are carried out. Well-developed procedures and planning will in the long run result in reduced costs, equipment downtime, parts requirements and troubleshooting complexity.

This online training seminar will highlight:

  • Power Generator Systems
  • Excitation Modes and Characteristics
  • Voltage Control and Governors
  • Generator Transformers
  • Synchronization Techniques
  • Generator Circuit Breakers
  • Common Generator Faults
  • Maintenance and Online Monitoring of Alternators

Objectives

At the end of this online training course, you will learn to:

  • Elaborate on different types of power system generation
  • Discuss operations of the steam and gas turbines
  • Examine different types of excitation systems
  • Explore different types of switchgear associated with generator systems
  • Identify automatic voltage regulating techniques and governors
  • Describe troubleshooting techniques and online monitoring

Training Methodology

This online training course will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.

Organisational Impact

Upon completion of the online training course the organizational impact would be:

  • Current practices onsite can be reviewed (and changed) to bring the workplace up to current standards
  • Engineers and Technicians can gain knowledge to apply in their individual work roles so that they can understand current procedures and practices, should their work role not be a fully ‘hands-on’ role
  • Updating of technical skills and Standards from previous learning
  • Technicians, Engineers and Managers will be able to apply current work practices, for compliance with legislation
  • All candidates will be made aware of upcoming changes to practices and legislation so that they can be pro-active in their work roles and implement the changes quickly and efficiently

Personal Impact

On successful completion of this online training programme, delegates will be able to:

  • Develop a systematic approach to the construction and operation of a turbo generator system
  • Maintain a continuing understanding of test equipment used for electrical inspection and servicing
  • Better understand the design, functionality of the excitation systems, automatic voltage regulator and governors
  • Understand the operations and component functions of a generator transformer
  • Utilize single-line diagrams and schematics for troubleshooting
  • Better understand standard work practices plus develop job plans, which assist in successful inspection and troubleshooting
  • Be aware of the importance of maintenance and safety
