Power Station Design & Maintenance

Design and maintenance of power stations can be performed in different ways based upon different company strategies, practices, and standards all around the world. Final decision makers must be very cautious about the design and maintenance techniques that they adopt for any particular site, because the decision not only affects the system reliability, quality, and dependability, but also it impacts the associated costs.

Thus, attending this course is highly recommended to electrical and even non-electrical engineers who are somehow involved in the establishment of power stations of any kind. The course is also recommended to company managers to improve their skills in better understanding of power station technical issues and their solutions at high level.

Top Learning Objectives

    • Improve your knowledge about the design and maintenance of power stations
    • Minimize adverse effects of power station outages and mal-operation
    • Maximise power station efficiency, reliability, dependability, and quality
    • Develop your skills in understanding of power station design parameters and characteristics
    • Gain valuable insights through in-depth power system analysis, and provide solutions to most critical issues
    • Understand how to apply suitable maintenance techniques for different power stations
    • Discuss the challenges related to the design and maintenance of power stations
    • Learn how to interpret the results of power station modelling
    • Practice developing technical specifications for different types of power stations
    • Create single line diagrams and schematics for different power generation systems

Who Should Attend?

Professionals and intermediate engineers involved in the design, installation, construction, and maintenance of power stations will largely benefit from this course. The course also suits the needs of company managers to attend the course to get insights about major design, installation, and maintenance issues of power stations and learn about modern techniques to minimize or mitigate the associated risks at optimum technical effort and customised engineering costs.
