Power Plant Cogeneration - 3 PDH

Email
This is an introduction to the strategies that may be employed in cogeneration operation of electric power generating plants and distribution systems. This publication provides an introduction to electric power plant cogeneration. Cogeneration is the simultaneous generation of electricity (or mechanical energy) and steam (or other thermal energy such as hot air or hot water) from the same fuel (or energy) source.

Course Introduction
This is an introduction to the strategies that may be employed in cogeneration operation of electric power generating plants and distribution systems.

Course Summary
This course will help you to address a variety of cogeneration issues and opportunities.

Course Description
This publication provides an introduction to electric power plant cogeneration. Cogeneration is the simultaneous generation of electricity (or mechanical energy) and steam (or other thermal energy such as hot air or hot water) from the same fuel (or energy) source.

Course Outline
1. DEFINITION
2. CYCLES
3. EFFICIENCY
4. METHODS OF OPERATION
5. INTERCONNECTION WITH UTILITY
6. ECONOMICS
7. REFERENCES

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this course you will:

• Learn about the cogeneration cycles which consist of operating energy conversion equipment such as boilers, turbines, and electric generators so as to produce both electricity and steam or other thermal energy;

• Learn about the basic conventional cycle which consists of a steam boiler and turbine, which drives either an electrical generator or other mechanical equipment, and from which steam is extracted or exhausted to environmental heating or processes;

• Learn about the combined cycle which consists of a gas turbine which exhausts to a heat recovery steam generator;

• Learn how under parallel operation, a cogeneration plant is electrically interconnected and synchronized with an electric utility distribution or transmission system, with both the cogenerator and electric utility generating electricity simultaneously;

• Learn about peak shaving; and

• Learn about isolated operation, where the cogeneration plant generates, independently of the electric utility, all electricity and steam needed and used by the facilities that it serves.


Intended Audience
This course is intended for electrical engineers and electric utility managers interested in learning about cogeneration methods and strategies.

Benefit for Attendee
This course will give electrical engineers and other professional engineers and managers advice and recommendations on cogeneration operation of electric power generating plants.

I chose your company because of the price, and I'm certainly happy with that!  I am thankful that there is Continuing Education that is so affordable.  Thanks for responding!

Thank you for your quick response.  I can take unlimited courses for up to one year?  That means I can apply some of the courses for this year’s  deadline, and take additional courses after that toward my next period deadline!
