Course Overview

Gas turbines are internal combustion engines in which the burning of an air-fuel mixture produces hot gases that spin a turbine to generate power. It is the process of hot gas production during fuel combustion. Basic operation of gas turbines is called the Brayton cycle. They are used to power aircraft, trains, ships, electric generators, pumps, etc. It is advantageous to use gas turbines for power generation because they have a high power-to-weight ratio, are smaller than most other engines, show smooth main shaft rotation, are more reliable, have lower peak combustion pressures, etc. Their regular maintenance is extremely critical because it increases system efficiency, extends life-cycle of the turbine, reduces maintenance costs, etc.

This Zoe training course will empower you with detailed knowledge and understanding of gas turbines, including their operation, performance, maintenance and troubleshooting. Through this course, you will build your skill set to cater to all aspects concerning gas turbines, a pre-requisite for senior roles in processes involving gas turbine operations. This course will prepare you to undertake higher roles and responsibilities not just in your organisation but any other organisation.


Course Objectives

The primary objective of this training program is to empower professionals with—

  • detailed information and knowledge about gas turbines, including their operation, performance, maintenance and troubleshooting
  • the required skills to successfully handle processes involving gas turbines
  • the ability to make appropriate, timely decisions related to the choice of material and type of turbine as per the intended purpose
  • the necessary confidence and knowledge to train other professionals to efficiently work with gas turbines
  • the experience and exposure to review current systems and make enhancements to improve operational efficiency and demonstrate skill and talent
  • the confidence to face all challenges when working with gas turbines and not let these impact the organisation
  • the ability to contribute to operational efficiency and reduction in operational and maintenance costs, thereby demonstrating potential to undertake higher roles and responsibilities
  • the capabilities to ensure adherence to all standards set out for working with gas turbines
  • a sense of pride contributing to organisational development through reduced costs and increased operational efficiency

Training Methodology

Courses at Zoe Talent Solutions are delivered with a focus to ensure complete relevance of the training content to the intended audience. For this reason, the course content is closely reviewed and checked for changes, if any, as per the intended audience. A highly experienced professional deliver the training using audio-visual presentations. The trainer also assigns projects to the audience to engage them in the program. Role-plays and case study discussions also encourage interaction among trainees.

The above theoretical-cum-practical approach to training was development by Zoe Talent Solutions and is used for all its courses. It is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.
