PREREQUISITES
The students should have completed a Solar Operation and Routine Maintenance Course, or have equivalent field experience.
 
 
COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course is designed to augment the Operation and Mainternance class by providing more advanced knowledge of the design, construction, operation, and performance of a boost compressor and its associated systems. This will provide the student with the knowledge to evaluate the operation of the compressor package, and enhance their ability to troubleshoot common problems on the seal, process valve, and surge control systems. Compressor performance theory and calculations are covered, which will allow the students to perform a basic performance evaluation.
