Course Overview

A power plant is an engineering facility used to produce electric power with the support of one or more generators, which transforms energy from different sources into electric power. Power plant operators regulate and supervise boilers, turbines, generators, and any auxiliary apparatus in power-generating plants.

These operators also distribute power demands among multiple generators, merge power from generators, and monitor devices to maintain the voltage and regulate the electricity which flows from the plant.

This training course offers an insight into the basic principles, as well as selected in-depth knowledge, regarding the operation, control, construction, fabrication, and composition of the most popular types of fossil-fuelled power plants like thermal, gas, and diesel power stations.

The program also provides an insight into the concepts and theories of electrical and mechanical engineering, electrical machines and electrical drives, thermodynamics, etc. to further the participants’ knowledge in the domain.

Not only does this training course deliver a supreme understanding of the power station control variables, and instrumentation techniques, but it also discusses the methods of monitoring and control of the processes and the operation of control devices, valves, sensors, actuators, heat exchangers, compressors, and so on.

This is important because power plants and transmission stations have particularly high risk, and workers should be prepared to work in such hazardous environments. When operators perform their tasks either inside or outside the control room, they may be subjected to danger from electric shocks, falls, or burns. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the procedures to be followed to prevent such accidents.

What areas does this “Certified Power Plant Operator” course cover? This program will delve into topics like types of power plants and their unique features; power generation theory; industrial power plants, processes, and control procedures; the operation and selection criteria for power plants; thermal, gas, and diesel generation; and the fundamentals of electric machines, and control devices.

This Zoe training course will empower you with a detailed understanding of the various aspects of operating power plants in an educated manner, thereby reducing the risk of errors caused due to a lack of knowledge and awareness in the domain.
