Course overview

Configuring a power plant layout requires analyzing many variables, including economics, environmental factors, licensing, and others. The Gas Turbine Fundamentals and and Configuration of Generating Facilities training course discusses the basic design of a simple cycle power plant and the function and operation of its fundamental piece of equipment, the combustion turbine.

This online course covers generating facility configuration, basic principles of gas turbines, gas turbine design and components, turbine temperature distribution and monitoring, and engine configurations. The Gas Turbine Fundamentals course is part of the Combustion Turbine Fundamentals series.
