Turbine Efficiency, Part 1

SKU: HR01200CENDuration: 60 Minutes

This course examines some of the conditions that can cause operating parameters to change and some of the effects of those changes. After completing this course, participants should be able to explain why it is important to operate a turbine as close to its design parameter values as possible, and describe how changes in certain parameters affect efficiency, heat rate, and fuel consumption.
