Course Description

Diesel generating plants have an important role in power plants as well as in industries and commercial installations to meet continuous and emergency standby power requirements for dayto- day use. A good knowledge of basic operation principles, layout requirements, associated components and maintenance practices for diesel power plants help the career development of many engineers and technicians in today's demanding world. Whatever your role in industry - designer, purchase engineer, installation contractor or maintenance engineer, a solid knowledge of diesel power plants is always useful. This workshop is designed to familiarise You with various aspects of diesel generating power plants for practical application. Examples will be taken from various industrial standard practices regarding the construction, layouts, application and maintenance procedures followed for reliable and trouble free operation of diesel power plants. The various tests to be conducted during commissioning and maintenance checks to ensure proper and long term operation of diesel power plants will also be covered in the workshop. Some essential systems such as fuel oil layouts, lube oil requirements and control circuitry will also be discussed.
