Power Plant Operations

Steam generation is still the most important source of electrical power for utilities and industrial plants. TPC’s Power Plant Operations training series addresses the need of the power plant worker to understand basic principles of power generation and the safe, efficient operation and maintenance of the power plant itself. Detailed courses also provide a foundation for learning more of the technical aspects of power plant operations and maintenance.

Unit 111: How Power Plants Work ($100)

This course covers the basic steam generation system, how thermal energy is converted into electrical energy, components of the system, and design features for gaining thermal efficiency. Includes handling of water, fuel, and wastes, and the operating features and maintenance of a power plant.

Lesson 1 – Steam-The Primary Force

Lesson 2 – How Heat is Converted to Power

Lesson 3 – Power Plant Efficiency

Lesson 4 – Handling Water, Fuel, and Wastes

Lesson 5 – Power Plant Operation and Control
