Controls Training for Turbine Operators

This program is intended for all control technicians and engineers, no matter their level of experience. The training will offer the attendees in-depth knowledge to work with the Mk VI control system in application with the gas turbine. This training will familiarize them with the hardware and software components of the control system. It will develop strong skills in process alarm troubleshooting and analysis of the control code. Additional training includes LVDT calibration, control interface (Cimplicity HMI) software programming, sequence editing and diagnostic alarm troubleshooting. A Mark VI simulator will be used to provide the participants with some hands on training.
