This course introduces students to the various types of industrial gas turbine generating systems such as micro, heavy frame and aero-derivative systems. Various topics include theory of operation, fuel systems, emission controls, inlet systems, cooling, heating, and filtering. History of gas turbines is covered as well as support systems, combustion controls, life-cycle monitoring and safety in a gas turbine power plant. Students will also be introduced to HRSG (Heat Recovery Steam Generator) topics including purge sequences, co-generation systems, single and multiple steam drums, duct burners, exhaust gas dynamics, turbulence and emission controls. Lab must be taken concurrently.
