Program Description

The course provides concepts and practical aspects related to boiler and auxiliaries for power plants. The course takes the learner through the boiler plant layout and basic design. It further takes the learner through a deep dive into the design of major components of boiler, boiler structure, boiler major systems, boiler feed water system, boiler coal milling system, boiler duct, fans, air heaters, emission abatement system such as NOx and SOx, electrical systems of boiler, instrumentation and control and civil construction in boiler plant. The course also gives a glimpse of the manufacturing, quality assurance and control, construction, commissioning and operational aspects of boiler and auxiliaries for fossil fuel power plants.

Enables learner to:

  • Formulate practical knowledge on real-life industrial applications of multidisciplinary technical equipment and systems in thermal power plant and nuclear power plant
  • Develop total theoretical & practical knowledge of layout & processes
  • Associate with latest technologies and software used in power plant engineering
  • Build essential skills and to provide virtual exposure for efficiently handling any equipment & systems in an EPC power project or power plant.
