Advanced Thermal Performance

Training for those who have had a basic course or one year or more experience

The Advanced Thermal Performance training course is designed for those who have had a basic thermal performance course or one year or more experience in thermal performance. This training was developed by utility engineers who have solved many plant thermal performance problems and are uniquely qualified to help you understand how to deal with efficiency issues at your plant. Please forward this invitation to persons at your site responsible for Thermal Performance. In addition, this training has been presented to system engineers who have benefited from the overall troubleshooting skills developed. We apologize but due to the use of the EPRI volume 3 Trouble Shooting Tool, in this training, attendance is limited to EPRI members only.

Course Content & Structure

  • Setting Baseline Values: Thermal performance monitoring program starts with establishing and verifying baseline values for important performance parameters. Baseline values need revision after plant uprates or other modifications. This course will describe and provide hands on examples of how to determine baseline values.
  • Development of Correction Curves: In addition to baseline values, correction curves are required to determine the effect of the plant parameters deviating from the baseline values. This course will describe how to develop correction curves using thermodynamic modeling as well as empirical data.
  • How to Troubleshoot Thermal Performance Problems: This course will provide examples of actual plant problems and the students will use the troubleshooting process to identify the problem
