This Practical Boiler Control Systems workshop focuses on efficient and cost effective
start-up and shutdown procedures, safety interlocks and on-line operations of boilers.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

  • The key features of basic boiler control loops & systems
  • Boiler combustion control – to optimize combustion efficiency for burning liquid, gaseous, solid or pulverized fuels
  • Principles & design concepts governing:
    • boiler feed water control
    • steam demand & firing control
    • main steam & reheat steam temperature control
    • importance of boiler & unit interlocks
    • boiler draft systems & controls
    • flue gas analysis & fuel combustion trimming controls
  •  Artificial intelligence & expert systems for improved boiler plant efficiency

Who Should Attend:

  • Senior Boiler Plant Operators, Repairers & Installers
  • Boiler Plant Construction Managers
  • Plant Engineers
  • Operation, Maintenance, Inspection & Repair Managers,

IN HOUSE AND ONLINE TRAINING

While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
