Description

Power generation is fundamental to providing an adequate supply of electricity to consumers, both in terms of quality and quantity. This requires the generation equipment to be designed, installed, commissioned, operated, and maintained in a satisfactory manner within a management system that is effective in meeting the reliability goals within budget targets. This course focuses on the operation, commissioning, and maintenance of power generation equipment and the auxiliary equipment necessary for its operation.
