Short Term Course


Supercritical Technology for Power Generation in India

22nd January- 26th January 2018

About the Course

Super Critical Coal Power Plants are relatively newer for India. First Unit in India was commissioned only six years back and the installation of Super Critical Coal Power Plants gained actual momentum in last 3-4 years only. However all most all of the future coal plants are now proposed based on super critical Technology only. A huge capacity addition by Super Critical Coal Power Plants is proposed in near future. There is a shortage of erection & commissioning experts, operation & maintenance engineers, indigenous manufacturing facilities and Research & Development facilities for these power plants in India. More over a huge quantum of work potential will be required in near future for efficient running of these plants.
This course aims to train / working engineers / academicians / researchers in the field of erection & commissioning, operation & maintenance of these plants and provide them insight into of development, technology, theory of operation and on going R&D of these plants. It will be helpful to build a work force, required for Indian Super Critical Coal Plants in near future. The course is designed such that the participants get a good exposure to both basic principles and their applications and gain a footing for further study in this area.

Course Contents

Introduction to cycle of operation, parameters and performance of Critical Power Plants, Elements of critical & Super Critical (SC) Plants, Design & Technologies for SC Plants, Global Scenario of operation of Super Critical Plants.
