Thermal Performance Training

for Fossil Power Plants

Due to the aging nuclear fleet many utilities are needing to replace their Moisture Separator and Reheaters (MSRs). This course is designed to support those engineers, involved with a replacement project, to better understand the component they are working, its subcomponents, and key aspects of a replacement project.

MSR Training Outline 

  • Thermal Performance Program Development: Designed to review thermodynamic fundamentals and describe the essential elements of a thermal performance program
  • Power Plant Cycle & Component Evaluation: Designed to teach how to identify and recover lost megawatts throughout the thermal cycle.
  • Thermal Plant Testing Overview: Designed to provide an introduction and overview to power plant testing.
  • Heat Rate Optimization.
