Combined Cycle: Normal Operations

SKU: AOCCN01CENDuration: 120 Minutes

In this course, we'll focus on the normal operation of a combined cycle power plant. We'll look at an overview of the major components of a combined cycle plant, and we'll see how procedures for plant control are developed and updated. We'll also look at the procedures involved in starting up and shutting down a plant, and we'll see how a distributed control system (DCS) helps operators monitor and maintain a plant during normal operation.
